Many include local and organic ingredients. Malt, honey and hops producers from Virginia will also be part of the Fest.

If purchased in advance, tickets are $30 AND INCLUDE GATE ADMISSION TO THE STATE FAIR. AFTER SEPTEMBER 27 at 11:59 pm, TICKETS ARE $25 AND DO NOT INCLUDE EVENT ADMISSION. (tickets available for sale at the event pending availability).
