NORMAL- Medici in Normal is bringing a new festival to Uptown that will entice your taste buds.

Medici, along with the March of Dimes and Uptown Partners, is sponsoring the first ever Medici Craft Beer and Jazz Festival.

The event will feature more than 30 craft beers, appetizers, and live jazz performances.

Craft beers have been gaining in popularity as consumers begin to crave new tastes.

Organizers say it's a unique opportunity for people to explore a variety of new flavors.

"I really want people to come out into the street and try something new. Come and go out of their comfort zone and fall in love with a new beer," added Joshua Miranda, Medici Bar Manager.

The festival runs Saturday, July 19th from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m outside Medici at 120 West North Street.

March of Dimes is asking for a $3 suggested donation at the gate.
