HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

More than 30 breweries from 15 states offered folks more than 100 different beers during the 2nd annual Hattiesburg Craft Beer Festival Saturday. 

The event was held at the Hattiesburg Train Depot. 

It featured breweries from as far away as California and Oregon, to Massachusetts and Vermont. 

"Craft beer is made on a smaller scale than a lot of these macro brews and it's a specialty brew," said Emily Curry of Southern Prohibition Brewing in Hattiesburg. "We have a lot of (company representatives) here today, so it's like getting one-on-one with all of these people that make this beer and make something special every day," she said.

"It's a good crowd," said Dorsey Knott with Bayou Teche Brewing in Arnaudville, La. "We get a lot of enthusiastic feedback on our beer. We've got a lot of entrepreneurs that are coming out to see what beers are available for their restaurants and bars," he said.

An estimated 600 people attended the festival, which is twice the amount that visited last year's event.
