Featuring more than 50 craft beers – and all from Virginia brewers – the selection will include rare drafts, cask ales, bottles and ciders from over 30 Virginia producers including Falls Church’s own Mad Fox Brewing Company. Helping keep attendees sober throughout the boozefest, a menu of regional grub including grilled oysters, BBQ pork sandwiches, half smokes, soft pretzels and fried mac and cheese will also be available.

Admission to the festival is $5 (proceeds go to Arcadia Center for Sustainable Agriculture) and includes a free koozie. Food and drink tickets will be sold for $1 each.
