The Big Philly Beerfest is coming back for round three. There will be two dates in January when craft beer fans can visit the Pennsylvania Convention Center for unlimited samples of the extensive selection of brews.

Over 125 breweries will be bringing more than 350 craft beers to the event. 

Those who are set on attending may want to purchase tickets before Dec. 25. Through Christmas Day, early admission tickets will be the same price as general admission: $45. After, they will increase to $55-$65 per person.

This year, early admission begins at 7 p.m. and regular admission is at 8. Big Philly Beerfest bumped back the start of the festival from last year so that more commuters could attend the full time.

Funds from the event will benefit Animal Rescue Partners, which helps local animals find homes and care.
