Who is pouring?
We have asked all participating breweries to send one of their own to come hang out, pour beer, answer questions, and party like it’s 1976.
What beers will be there?
The beers at the festival will be extremely fresh + rare, making it difficult to predict what everyone will bring. All of the beers will be of a limited variety that have never been distributed to the Hampton Roads area.
