Enjoy the blue ribbon taste of Virginia craft beer at the State Fair!

October 7, 2017, from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance (tickets available at the event pending availability).

Attendees will receive a souvenir tasting glass and enjoy unlimited 4 ounce tastings from Virginia craft breweries. Interact with owners, brewers and representatives from throughout the commonwealth and enjoy their fantastic products while listening to live music. Just outside the Fest tent lies all that the State Fair has to offer, from animals and veggies to cotton candy and Ferris wheels.

State Fair admission is not included and must be purchased separately (https://2017statefairofvirginia.eventbrite.com). All Fest ticket holders must be 21 years of age or older and show valid ID before receiving a wristband and tasting glass. Non-drinking attendees and those under 21 may accompany Fest ticket holders into the tent but will not receive a tasting glass.

Participating breweries will be independent, small, commercial breweries from 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 defines 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. A list of breweries will be on the State Fair website (www.statefairva.org) in September.

The State Fair ticket office may be reached at 804-994-2800 or tickets@meadoweventpark.com. Interested breweries should contact the Virginia Craft Brewers Guild for more information.
