KINGMAN - This weekend, the Mohave County Fairgrounds will be a stirring monument to a drink that has been a part of human civilization for at least the last 6,000 years.

The Second Annual Beerfest will take place at the fairgrounds from 4-8 p.m. Saturday.

Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door, and an extra $10 for a "designated driver" feature that includes all the water and soda one can drink in four hours, according to Teri Jack, chairperson of Mohave County Fairgrounds.

"We're super excited," she said. "We have local breweries participating, and brewer representation this year out of Flagstaff, and Williams, and Havasu."

The fairgrounds is expecting a good amount of people this year, Jack said, based on word of mouth and the attention the festival has received on social media.

"The first 50 people that come through the gate will get a little beer tasting mug to sample out the beer, and the second 50 people will get a pretzel necklace," said Jack. "They get 15 tickets and go and sample out of probably a five ounce sample of beer, and if they want to purchase more tickets they can, but 15 is usually plenty."

It's an event where beer fans can pay for parking, participate in a cornhole tournament - which is basically beanbag's response to horse shoes - and see the proceeds go to a good cause - Sarah's House child advocacy center, according to the fairgrounds.

"We see patients, victims, however you want to call them, of crimes of physical and sexual abuse," said Krista Yokley, a nurse at the center. "We work with people from all walks of life ... from all over the county except Lake Havasu City. They have their own child advocacy center."

The Mohave County Fair Association is hosting the event with DMS Events, Inc., of Kingman.

Let's get this straight. Designated Drivers will have to pay $10 IN ADDITION to the entry fee. Yep, sounds like Kingman too me.

“…and an extra $10 for a ‘designated driver’ feature…”

So the person who will be responsible for keeping drunks off the road will have to pay an extra $10 for the privilege? Ridiculous! Might be a good idea to NOT be anywhere near Kingman on Saturday afternoon and evening.
