ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – In consecutive years, downtown St. Louis has seen its share of losses: the Taste of St. Louis moved to Chesterfield in 2014 and Ribfest left for St. Charles last year. But the St. Louis Brewers Guild is relocating its annual Heritage Festival to the riverfront this summer.

This is no competition. Instead, the festival celebrates dozens of local brewers by inviting the public to sample more than 100 styles of beer.

The festival will be held June 11 along Leonor K. Sullivan Boulevard, between the base of the Grand Staircase and Eads Bridge.

In years past, the Heritage Festival has operated as a two or three-day event. This year, however, the festival will run on a single day. Tickets for the event are expected to go on sale in April. Prices have not been finalized. Event promoters said they’ll sell 2,000 tickets for each of the two festival sessions.
