The producers of the award-winning Philly Craft Beer Festival return to the Philadelphia area with the launch of the first annual Valley Forge Beer Fest being held on Saturday, December 10, 2011 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA.  The Expo Center is easy to get to and offers free on-site parking.  Tickets are on sale now and selling quickly.  Producers predict a sell-out, following in the footsteps of the Philly Craft Beer Festival which has sold out weeks in advance for the last six years.

More than 50 Breweries & More than 100 Beers

The event will feature an incredible variety of beers from the local area, from across the country, and from around the globe.  Shoulder to shoulder with the most popular local breweries (including Sly Fox, Yards, Prism Beer Company, Appalachian Brewing Co., Boxcar Brewing Co., Evil Genius Beer Co., Victory Brewing Co., and Lancaster Brewery) will be amazing breweries from the country and around the world.  Click here to see BEER LIST.  Check back often, the list will be updated frequently.

Food is not included in the ticket price, but will be available for purchase during each session. A limited number of tickets are available for each session. When the event sells out, NO additional tickets will be sold online or at the door. Everyone who holds a ticket will be admitted—the event WILL NOT BE OVERSOLD. We want every attendee to be able to sample the beers they desire and to move around the event freely, comfortably, and safely.

No one under 21 will be admitted. Only those 21+ with valid photo ID will be admitted. No exceptions. This includes designated drivers who must be 21+ to attend. Proper identification is the responsibility of the attendee. Failure to present proper, valid photo identification (driver’s license or passport) will result in denial of entry with no refund offered. For the safety of everyone at the festival, no infants, children, strollers, or pets will be allowed. Please plan accordingly.
