Blue Ribbon Virginia Craft Beer Fest
October 6 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm$30
Enjoy 4-ounce tastings from more than 20 independent, small and commercial breweries from all around Virginia.
Virginia’s farm breweries will also be prominently featured. Each brewery will offer a sessionable beer, one with a lower alcohol content or an easier drinking version, and one of their flagship brews that define their craft. Many include local and organic ingredients. Malt, honey and hops producers from Virginia will also be part of the Fest, demonstrating the direct tie to agriculture.
This event is a partnership between the Virginia Craft Brewers Guild and State Fair of Virginia to celebrate the booming independent craft beer industry in the state and introduce a new audience to this unique agricultural product. Fest attendees will have the opportunity to interact with owners, brewers, and representatives from throughout the commonwealth and enjoy their fantastic products while listening to live music.
