CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL
The inaugural Hot Springs Craft Beer Festival proved a huge success on May 31. The event, which benefits the Spa City Blues Society, welcomed breweries from across the country and raised roughly $16,000 for the blues society’s various community projects. Originally, the event was to be held at Hill Wheatley Plaza, but a last-minute change of venue to the Hot Springs Convention Center helped accommodate the crowd of more than 700 people while keeping everyone out of the heat and humidity.
