Now in its sixth year, the Virginia Beach Craft Beer Festival brings more than 80 craft beers from 50+ breweries to town for sampling and savoring. Scheduled October 18 and 19, the festival gets bigger each year, so much so that it's outgrown 24th Street Park and is setting up shop in an enormous tent on the beach at 30th Street this year. Other than the location change, it's beer business as usual.
Priced $25 on Saturday and $20 on Sunday, in advance ($5 more on the day of), the all-inclusive fee buys you entry into the festival, beer samplings, a commemorative cup and an afternoon of live music. The names of the brews alone are enough to make us show up (rain or shine) on beautiful Virginia Beach, including Flying Dog, Smartmouth, Heavy Seas and Young Veterans. A toast to Beach Street USA, home of Virginia's sunniest, most spirited beer fest!
Address: 30th Street at the beach
