Every year, a sell-out crowd converges on Downtown Harrisonburg to enjoy a day of great music, food, and craft beer. With more than 60 beers available, you'll find national names as well as local favorites such as Blue Mountain and Devils Backbone.
The festival celebrates the quality and diversity of America's craft beer culture in the "best beer town", a designation by Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine in 2013. Each brewery is handpicked and will be represented at the festival by a member of that brewery. The breweries will bring their flagship brew as well as a seasonal or rare beer so even savvy beer fans will find something new to get excited about.
The Turner Pavilion (Farmer’s Market Pavilion) is the heart of the festival and houses all the beer vendors. The field next to provides a grassy area to relax and listen to music, sit down and get a bite to eat from a local food vendor, or take a quiet moment to wonder how you made it so far in life without you brand new favorite brew.
