Tickets For The 2017 Newport Craft Beer Festival Are On Sale Now!

By  |  0 Comments

Last year, all sessions for Newport’s Craft Beer Fest sold out so get yours now!

It may be still be winter, but spring is right around the corner and with it come some of Newport’s more exciting events! April 28th and 29th are the dates for the 6th Annual Newport Craft Beer Festival, a beer fest noted for focus on featuring local Rhode Island and regional New England breweries.

Once again, the Craft Beer Fest is following the Folk Fest model, selling tickets now and announcing breweries later a technique which worked out quite well last year, as all three sessions (Very Important Beer on the Friday night [Held at the Newport Storm Brewery] and Sessions 1 and 2 on the Saturday [held in a tent next to the Great Friends Meeting House]) sold out weeks before the Festival.

What to expect: 30-something breweries (perhaps even more), live music, plenty of food and a nice little sampling glass to keep as a souvenir.

Our recommendation? Grab up your tickets for the VIB Event. That’s where the highest-end, rarest and high-ABV beers will be available. Last year Black Hog showed up with a keg of sour beer they had just blended for the event. It was amazing…and will never be seen again. It’s also the smallest event and the one that sells out the fastest.

How do you get your tickets?
