Saturday is the inaugural PaBREWcah Beer Fest, featuring 19 craft breweries from across the region and live music in downtown Paducah. On Sounds Good, Tracy Ross speaks with Daniel Sene about the event, which benefits Paducah Symphony Orchestra.

Sene says he is anticipating between 2,000 to 3,000 people. Attendees get a commemorative pint glass along with a beer card good for up to 10 4 oz. samples (additional cards can be purchased). There will be at least 38 different beers to choose from. Food is also available for purchase.

WKMS is a partner for this event, sponsoring the Flood Stage featuring live performance by WKMS 2016 Battle of the Bands winner The Savage Radley, Wheelhouse Rousters and Solid Rock'it Boosters.

Designated drivers, family members and guests of ticket buyers are allowed on the grounds free of charge (but you will need a ticket if you want to drink beer).","_id":"00000179-ebc2-d7ee-a97b-ebe344a30000","_type":"035d81d3-5be2-3ed2-bc8a-6da208e0d9e2"}">">","_id":"00000179-ebc2-d7ee-a97b-ebe344a30000","_type":"035d81d3-5be2-3ed2-bc8a-6da208e0d9e2"}">
