The enterprising minds at Joycat Events debuted the SIP Wine in the Park wine festival last month. According to their website, they have plans to bring us a little warm-up-your-winter event called Bundle Up Beerfest in the winter of 2016. But lodged in between the two new events are a not-so-old familiar: the Lancaster Craft Beerfest.
Tickets are now on sale for the the third annual Beerfest, which will once again transform the 100 block of North Queen Street into an open-air beer garden on Saturday, August 29. Binns Park and Lancaster Square will be the focal points of the brew itself, while food and street vendors and live music will all be within arm’s reach all up and down Queen Street.
Things are still falling into place right now, but the event organizers promise that this year’s fest will bring back more than 100 craft brews for your sampling pleasure. (Of course, we’ll be sure to keep you updated on breweries and bands that plan to be there as we hear more.)
A $55 VIP ticket gets you some complimentary food samples and entry to this land of wonders at 3 p.m., before it “officially” opens at 4. General admission is $40 and gets you access to the Beerfest and a universe of beer samples. Designated drivers can get in for $12 and access everything minus the beer samples (duh). Joycat also promises “all the root beer you can drink” in exchange for ensuring that your friends don’t try to drunk parkour up a building or anything … which, we suppose, is only fair.
This event sold completely out last year, so get your tickets while you can – no such thing as tickets at the door with this event.
