Strange Brew Festival

This is a celebration of uniquely crafted brews from local breweries.
Expect the unexpected! Most of the offerings from our local breweries will only be available at this festival. We’re talking about uncommon beer, in many cases specially crafted for this event. These brews will challenge your taste buds, your ideas of beers, and your sensibilities. Strange Brew will be complimented with live music from local bands and a tasty BBQ too. A truly different kind of brew festival for the beer geek in all of us!
