    This is the only festival in Hampton Roads that exclusively features local 757 Craft Breweries as they battle it out to win in different beer categories – with 100% of the proceeds go to local Hampton Roads charities! This award-winning and unique event pits Hampton Roads-based breweries against each other to determine who has the best beer in Hampton Roads. Each year, local breweries put their best brews on tap and are rated by an official brewer tasting panel and by attendees of the event to see which beer is the best in the 7-5-7.

    The one-of-a-kind event features live music, food trucks, tastings of every beer (two beers from each brewery!), corn hole, giant beer pong, and much much more! This event is in its 6th year – and the battle will be bigger and better than ever before! Over 25 craft breweries will be competing.

    The BATTLE OF THE BREWERS is back! For the 2nd year, we, along with our friends at Backyard Sports Club, will feature 2-man/woman teams from each Brewery competing in a 3-round contest utilizing strength, agility, aim, brains, balance, logic, concentration, determination, and luck! The winning Brewery gets a chunk of the event profits for their chosen charity! Last year Deadline Brewing Project won this event before they actually opened their doors.

    VIP Admission is 12 NOON-6:30PM
    General Admission is 1PM-6:30PM
