Grab some friends and head to the Newtown Beerfest on Saturday, September 22 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. While there are plenty of family-friendly activities in the fall, the kids will have to sit this one out. Over 80 breweries will be featured at the event, including local microbreweries such as Triumph Brewery of New Hope. This premiere beer event is presented by the Newtown Fire Association, and money raised benefits the Newtown Fire Association, the State Street business district and other areas of the community.
The main part of Beerfest goes from 2 p.m. – 5 :30 p.m. General Admissions tickets cost $40 per person and include a souvenir glass for sampling over 100 beers from local and regional breweries. Click here for a list of the breweries. Want more? The First Tap session gets you in the event at 12:30 p.m. and includes a special T-shirt, a ticket for a free food item and samples of rare unique brews. First Tap tickets are $75 per person. To encourage responsible behavior (and so that non-drinkers can still enjoy the fun), a Designated Driver ticket is available for $10. This ticket includes admission to the event, but no beer sampling is permitted. Click here to buy your tickets online. Tickets are also available at Clubhouse Bar and Grill and Isaac Newton’s Restaurant on South State Street or Triumph Brewery of New Hope.
Bring your appetite and get ready for fun. Food and entertainment will be served alongside the premium beer at this sudsy extravaganza. Local food vendors including Becky’s Newtown Deli, the Clubhouse Bar and Grill and Tre Fratelli will be in attendance. And local music groups, Schwubby Buzzer and The Karmic Repair Co., will be performing throughout the afternoon.
Newtown Beerfest is held at the Stocking Works Complex in Newtown and is a rain-or-shine event. Tents will be set up in the event of poor weather. Tickets are required for all attending. Be sure to bring a valid ID, and leave the kids, pets and chairs at home.
