Miss-I-Sippin’ Doesn’t Disappoint Over the Weekend

Yoknapatawpha Arts Council (YAC) hosted its wildly successful craft beer festival – Miss-I-Sippin’ – over the weekend, re-establishing it as one of Oxford’s favorite festivals.

The festival, which began on Friday, April 1 with a Brewer’s Dinner at the Powerhouse, brought in approximately 250 patrons over the two-day event.

The gallery below features a whole lot of friendly, smiling faces at both the Brewer’s Dinner and Saturday’s continuation at the outdoor Oxford Pavilion on University Avenue.

Skies were clear, temps were cool and music and beer (again) flowed freely from noon through 6 p.m. And, it was good to see several of our local four-legged friends enjoying the day, too.

Congratulations and Hotty Toddy to YAC, the brewers and all organizers of the popular event. We’ll see you again next year.
