Blacksburg Brew Do Craft Beer Festival returns for fourth year on Oct. 6
The Blacksburg Partnership, a nonprofit economic development organization, announces the fourth-annual Blacksburg Brew Do, an award-winning craft beer festival. The event will be held at the First & Main Shopping District on Saturday, Oct. 6 from noon to 6 p.m., rain or shine.
Last fall’s Brew Do event drew more than 4,000 festival-goers, and 28 breweries pouring nearly 100 different beer varieties. This year the festival welcomes back the best in craft brewers from the mid-Atlantic region and beyond, offering another outstanding selection of ales, lagers, stouts, pilsners, ciders, and specialty beers. Delicious food, cooking and brewing demonstrations, tailgate games sponsored by Windsor Hills Apartments, and live entertainment will complement a great day of beer tasting at a premier Blacksburg shopping destination. The exciting atmosphere and festival offerings spurred readers of The Roanoke Times to name Blacksburg Brew Do the #3 Best Community Event earlier this year.
In collaboration with SAS Builders Inc., Howls and Meows returns as a fundraiser benefitting the Animal Welfare Foster Program. Through Howls and Meows, luxury pet houses will be designed, constructed, and publicly displayed in the weeks leading up to and at Blacksburg Brew Do. Raffle tickets will be sold for each pet house with the raffle winners announced after the festival.
The fourth-annual Blacksburg Brew Do Home Brew Competition sponsored by Bull & Bones Brewhaus & Grill is also now under way. Home brewers across the region are invited to see how their special recipe stacks up against the competition. The contest will culminate at the festival with the announcement of “Best in Show” and the winner receiving the opportunity to brew their recipe as a seasonal beer at Bull & Bones.
“We’re so pleased to continue offering our two signature festivals, Blacksburg Brew Do and Blacksburg Fork and Cork,” said Diane Akers, president of the partnership. “The awards we’ve received this year are marks of truly great, established events. The community always looks forward to these annual festivals.”
