What would be better than a cold beer and a day at the beach? A visit to Virginia Beach will allow you to do just that with its popular craft beer scene and annual Virginia Beach beer festivals. Quench your thirst and soak up the sun with one of these festivals.
Coastal Craft Beer Festival
In it’s fifth year (since 2014), the Coastal Craft Beer Festival will take over Neptune’s Park and transform it into a craft beer lover’s haven. The event will feature local Virginia beers, ciders, seltzers – a new addition in 2019 with hard seltzers from Bold Rock and O’Connor Brewing. The event will also showcase regional and national craft brewers, for an impressive representation that speaks to all beer lovers.
Beyond the beer, there will be food trucks there to cater to your appetite. This year, Your Pie and The Coop food trucks will be there.
Live music will also be playing at the festival with three different bands scheduled throughout the day.
Tickets are required for entry and include a commemorative beer-tasting glass and tastings throughout the day. Advance tickets are $35, and week of event tickets are $40.
Virginia Beach Craft Beer Festival
Head to the beach and sip on harvest-style seasonal brews and classic favorites from some of our local breweries at the Virginia Beach Craft Beer Festival including Back Bay Brewing and Commonwealth Brewing. But the flavors don’t stop here, with over 50 craft beers from over 25 reginal and national breweries, there will be plenty to sample!
Tickets must be purchased for entry and include unlimited sampling, a commemorative cup, and live entertainment.
The event takes place beneath a large tent on the beach at 30th street
