dThe 2017 Virginia Craft Brewers Fest



If You Love Craft Beer ...

Join us Saturday, August 19th for the Virginia Craft Brewers Fest in Charlottesville, VA. The Fest will be hosted by Three Notch'd Brewing Company and is the only sanctioned event of the Virginia Craft Brewers Guild. Thousands of craft beer lovers from Virginia and surrounding states enjoy chatting with the brewers responsible for the tasty libations.

With nearly 100 breweries from across Virginia on hand to serve tastings from 2-8 PM (with VIP entry beginning at 1PM), you should plan to stay for the day so you get to taste them all. We are a family friendly Fest and offer designated driver ticket options to make sure all guests are able to enjoy their time.

Located in beautiful downtown Charlottesville, IX Art Park is centrally located to I64.

The Virginia Craft Brewers Fest has sold out each year, so don't wait too long to buy your tickets!

Three Awesome Bands Take the Stage

This year's headliner is Jackass Flats, "a funky, Southern good time." This Virginia band has coined the term “PartyGrass," and that's what happens when a long-established and popular bluegrass band blends a melting pot of influences, evolves into a fully electrified outfit and then works its magic on songs across all genres. Jackass Flats keeps toes tapping and dance floors filled.

Tara Mills and Jimmy Stelling team up for a set of folk, bluegrass and Americana. Influenced by bluegrass, old country and traditional mountain folk, Tara, who's based in Charlottesville, creates an original sound that captures true human feeling and emotion. Jimmy, a Tennessee native, is the son of Geoff Stelling, founder of Stelling banjos, and is one of the founders of The Hackensaw Boys out of Charlottesville. His driving but tasteful melodies on the banjo compliment and harmonize to the sweet songs the pair captures while performing.

Our opener, the Deer Creek Boys, has been a festival favorite for years. The Amherst pickers deliver hard-hitting harmonies, high energy and excellent songs.

Stay tuned for more details, including performance times.
