Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's been touted as the Best Beer Fest of the Season and that was put to the test Saturday at Bowman Field.

The World War Two Hanger at Louisville Executive Airport hosted the Tailspin Ale Fest.

More than 70 breweries were available for tasters to check out the more than 200 different beers, including some local companies.

The event benefits the Dare to Care food bank and brings in beer enthusiasts from about 16 states.

"This year we have people from New York, Colorado, Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, so it is nice to have those people come in from out of town," Co-founder Tisha Gainey said.

Last year the event raised more than $12,000.
