Event Preview | Pottstown Brew Fest 2017
The Pottstown Brew Fest is back for another year of celebrating craft beer, wine, cider, food and great music. The award-winning fest is returning to Pottstown Saturday, October 28 but it will be held at a new location — the Norco Fire Company. From 12-4:30 p.m., guests can sample beer and cider from some of the finest craft brewers in the Mid-Atlantic region and from across the United States.
Named the Best Outdoor Event in Montgomery County in 2015 and 2016, and a Top Five Best Local 2016 Outdoor Event by Philly A-List, It is hard to ignore the popularity of this local, annual beer tradition. This year’s Pottstown Brew Fest is slated to be even better!
“The Pottstown Brew Fest was one of the most successful events in the area for 2015 and 2016,” says Tim Hennessey, the Organizer of the Pottstown Brew Fest. “For 2017, we want to build upon that and make the Brew Fest even better. We are offering more local breweries, more music, more food choices, and better parking with the new location.”
The Pottstown Brew Fest benefits two great causes- the Kyle’s Quillows and the Norco Fire Company. Kyle’s Quillows is a registered 501c3 Pennsylvania non-profit organization and makes home-sewn quillows (a cross between a pillow and blanket) to brighten and cheer children facing life-threatening illnesses. Help show your support for these worthy causes and cheer on the recovery of these deserving children!
Local and national breweries will be equally celebrated during this festive fall day. Breweries that will be participating include Hidden River, Samuel Adams, Victory Brewing Company and Abomination Brewing Company. A total of 110 beers and ciders will be featured at this can’t miss event!
The enhanced VIP session offers attendees an extra hour of sampling and the opportunity to taste beers that will not be poured during the general session. VIP tickets are $75 and will include a collectible full size glass and a pig roast buffet from Yost Roast. General Admission tickets are $45 and will include a collectible sampling glass and a 4-hour sampling session, from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m.
