Beer, wine, food, and music combine to make one of our favorite Hannibal events.

The Taste of Twain festival is coming to downtown Hannibal September 15 and features wineries from all over Missouri including Cave Hollow Wine, Stoney Hill Winery, and St. James Winery among others.

Some breweries that will be at the festival include the Mark Twain Brewing Company who will be on hand with two new beers. St. James' Public House Brewing Company, Maryland Heights' Six Mile Bridge Winery, and the Ferguson Brewing Company will also be on hand sampling new beers and fan favorites.

And of course there will be food. The Mark Twain Dinette will have their famous Steampunk Burger Sliders and homemade root beer and Hannibal’s County Market will have plenty to sample from their deli and bakery.

There will also be a bourbon and cigar lounge, music from local artists, and plenty more to see and do. The festival is located by the Historic Homes of the Mark Twain Boyhood Home & Museum. All proceeds collect from the festival will benefit the Boyhood Home and Museum. Advance tickets are $25 and can be purchased at Historic Homes of the Mark Twain Boyhood Home & Museum, or at the day of the event for $35.
