The Williamsburg Craft Beer Festival is back and bigger than ever with expanded capacity, live music and 28 craft beers from 14 different breweries around the state.
The Rotary Club of Williamsburg and the Young Emerging Professionals of Williamsburg (YEP) is slated for 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 24 at City Square in downtown Williamsburg, and tickets are on sale now.
The festival began two years ago and the inaugural edition raised more than $11,000 for local nonprofits Beyond Boobs!, Child Development Resources, Avalon: A Center for Women and Children and Literacy for Life.
Last year’s sold-out event topped that fundraising milestone, raising more than $14,000 to benefit the same lineup of organizations.
In addition to beers from Alewerks, Smartmouth, O’Connor, the St. George Brewing Company, Legend, Devils Backbone, New Belgium Brewing, Heavy Seas, Sweet Water, DuClaw, Goose Island, Bold Rock Hard Cider, Shock Top and Center of the Universe, food will also be available for purchase.
Both general admission and VIP tickets, which include early access to the festival and limited-batch beers, are on sale now and can be bought here.
