Tired of going to those same bars and pubs around town? Want to enjoy a festival with your drinking mates? If you are a beer chugger, these are the best beer festivals you should absolutely be a part of.
Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Festival
This festival is organized on the 1st of June at Paso Robles, California. This is a much-talked-about festival where the top 50 breweries from all over the globe come with their best recipes and samples. But that isn’t all- you will get food trucks lined along the way. It isn’t just about the drink, you know.
Other Half Pastry Town
Brooklyn’s Other Half organizes two festivals- one in February and the other in June, and the tickets are comparatively higher in price- $100 and more. But then, this is Brooklyn, so you will get the best IPAs and amateur wrestling on the ground. Did you expect more?
Great American Beer Festival
Located in Denver, this festival is one of the biggest beer festivals in America, where over 4000 beer varieties are sampled at the price of one ticket! Also, the companies bringing in their supplies are comparatively on a higher scale than other festivals. Book your tickets for the first week of October if you want to be a part of it.
Extreme Beer Fest
Extreme Beer Fest is for those beer aficionados who look for something different in their drink. Started 16 years ago, this festival is organized on the 1st and 2nd of February, and brings in breweries who have a knack of creating ‘something different’. Also, this festival isn’t all about chugging as much as you can- it is about understanding the variety that they bring.
Hop Culture Juicy Brews Craft Beer Festival
This is a different brand of beer festival, where the festivals occur every month in a different city in the USA. The organizers collaborate with local breweries simply to overcome festival fatigue. After all, what’s better than drinking beer with friends at festivals round the year? In fact, the beer provided at Hop Culture is brewed only for this festival.
Oregon Brewers Festival
The Oregon Brewers Festival in Portland is quite different from the rest of the beer festivals scattered around the country. For one, the 2019 festival provided only Oregon brews. Also, they don’t charge any admission fees. So, you can simply waltz in and drink until your belly is full. In case you want to book tickets, the dates are July 24-27.
Hill Farmstead’s Festival of Farmhouse Ales
Hill Farmstead’s boasts of an extraordinarily adorable festival where people come from far off places just to taste one variety of beer- Farmhouse ale. But this festival is more progressive than others as they provide tasting glasses, designated driver entries, and music for the soul. So, no drinking in silence. Hop onto your truck and move to Greensboro Bend, on the 3rd of August.
Great Taste of the Midwest
Located in Madison, this festival is going to be a no-show for you if you don’t book the tickets NOW. With 190 breweries working in tandem on 10th August, you would be assured of a good booze fest- considering there aren’t many tickets to cater to.
So, here are the 8 best beer festivals that you should absolutely pay a
visit. Which one are you going to start off with?
