    If you're a fan of beer, you may want to pay attention.

    The Winter Beer Festival is Saturday at the Starlight Ballroom in Philly.

    The event gives suds aficionados a chance to taste well-known favorites such as Yards' Philly Pale and Sierra Nevada's Celebration to the more obscure brews, like Eel River's Triple Exultat and Elysain's Jasmine Ale.

    Tickets are still on sale -- $40 if you purchase them online before the event and $50 at the door for all you procrastinators.

    The unlimited samples are offered in an afternoon session from 1 to 5 and an evening session from 6 to 10.

    Burgers, hot dogs, pretzels, and other assorted snacks will also be available for sale.

    The Beer Fest strongly recommends public transportation, but for all you good friends: designated driver tickets are only 10 bucks.
