Road Tripsfor Beer photo by Tonya VotsTwo big events happen Saturday. The 139th running of the Kentucky Derby and Star Wars Day on May the Fourth (get it, get it?) Our advice is to find some great local beer to consume during your Derby parties and “Star Wars” marathons. Oh, and Cinco de Mayo, of course.

The Weekend Beer Festival Forecast publishes each Wednesday to alert beer road trippers about beer festivals and other brew-related events during the upcoming weekend.
