O’Connor Brewing Co. Presents:
Pillow Fight! Winter Beer Invitational
Featuring the juiciest, pillowy beers from 20+ east coast breweries.
Have you ever been to a beer festival so chill that you can literally show up in your pajamas? On Saturday, March 2nd we’re hosting Pillow Fight, a craft beer festival featuring unlimited pours from some of the best breweries on the east coast. It’s our successor to last years Dazed & Consumed Virginia Brewery Invitational, but this time we’ve added PJs, DJs, all the hazy beers you could possibly dream of, and the nostalgic excitement we all once felt going to childhood sleepovers.
From noon to 6pm, Pillow Fight will be taking over the brewery for two sessions of amazing beer, tasty noms from Hangry’s and Sofrito food truck, DJs spinning lush vibes, and a bunch of people wearing their best onesies and pajamas.
Session #1: VIP 12:00-12:30 pm | GA 12:30-2:30 pm
Session #2: VIP 3:30-4:00 pm | GA 4:00-6:00 pm
25 VIP tickets per session | 200 General Admission tickets per session.
The GA ticket is $35 and gets you entry to the festival, as well as a limited edition festival taster.
The VIP ticket is $75 and gets you early access to the festival, access to our mezzanine area with 4 more VIP only beers (not available to General Admission ticket holders), and an exclusive swag bag with a limited edition commemorative glass, a 16oz can of our event-exclusive beer release, a limited edition trucker hat, and a Pillow Fight branded pillow case.
