It is that time of year again…the end of summer. Even though summer may be wrapping up, that doesn’t mean the fun has to end! You still can toast the final few weekends of summer with some refreshing frosty beverages. This festival spans three weekends and features more than 100 beers tapped throughout the event, brewery talks from popular craft breweries, live local bands and traditional German food. And don’t forget the Beer Sampler: get your choice of TEN, 4 oz. samples from the variety of draft brews available during Bier Fest. You can use it on repeat visits during the Festival!
So Many Craft Beers on Tap
Beer bars throughout the park will offer guests unique draft and bottled beers from around the world, almost half of which come from breweries in Virginia.

FOOD – lots of great choices!
