LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –If you’re 21 or older, you’re invited to the annual Red River Craft Beer Festival.

This is the third year for the craft beer festival and proceeds go toward the Armed Services YMCA.

“The Armed Services YMCA is the leading provider of social and support services for military families,”
said Bill Vaughan, ASYMCA executive director. “Through the generosity of donors, the ASYMCA Lawton Fort Sill has provided educational, recreational, social, and inspirational support services to military personnel and their children continuously since 1942.”

More than $17,000 was raised for the ASYMCA during 2015’s craft beer festival.

The event is filled with well over 180 different craft beers from more than 50 breweries, live music from DJ Stuart Stout and food from various local restaurants. The craft beer festival kicks off at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 2, at the Great Plains Coliseum Expo Building for VIP ticket holders and 5 p.m. for regular ticket holders. The fun continues until 8 p.m.

Tickets are $10 for designated drivers who want to enjoy the music and non-alcoholic beverages, $35 for regular tickets and $55 for VIP tickets, unless you purchased them in advance.
