Back for its sixth year, the Bad A** Beerfest will be hosting over 60 breweries and pouring up more than 200 styles of beer.

The event will go down from 12:30-5 p.m. at TBBC's (formerly Tampa Bay Brewing Co.) Westchase location, at 13937 Monroes Business Park.

By the way, 20 of the 60 brewers on-site will either be from out of state or international, like 3 Stars Brewing from Washington DC.

The fest will also have live music, bites, and local craft lifestyle vendors.

TBBC’s Executive Chef John Boyle will be cooking up his signature barbecue alongside three food trucks slinging plates to keep attendees from tapping out early.

General admission is $65 for unlimited brew samples along with a souvenir glass.

For $120, VIPs get in 30 minutes early, along with access to the VIP lounge which will be pouring up six bonus taps, and 4-pack of the forthcoming Hop Silo 8.

There will also be Designated Driver Tickets available for $15, which includes unlimited soft drinks and water, and a complimentary meal from the TBBC Fest BBQ tent.
