Look out you hobbyists and step back you crafters, there’s a different kind of craft event in town. This September 25th ready yourself for the Morristown Craft Beer Festival! This family-friendly event will feature fun for people of all ages. Oh yeah, and did we mention, admission is totally FREE?!

There’s a whole ding-dang kids’ zone that’s going to be so rockin’ awesome your little ones won’t want to leave. We’re talking bouncy houses, face-painting, and a whole lot more. Plus, the food on deck is shaping up to be a food truck extravaganza. Because what pairs better with a beer and a September day but the best food truck treats the area has to offer?

Dust off your cornhole sacks because we’ve got a tournament on the books. Register Here for your chance for every member on your team to win a regulation cornhole board valued at $250. The registration fee is $50 and commemorates the event with awesome team t-shirts. This is one win you’ll talk about for decades to come, so don’t sleep on your skills, and be sure to sign up!

Like tunes with your brews (and who doesn’t?!)? Don’t worry, we’ve got a great lineup of bands to keep you bee-bopping while you’re beer hopping. Eddie Self and Phillip Lewis take the stage from 12:15-2:00 pm on the main stage; Broke-N-Busted go on at 4:15 pm until 6:00 pm, and Here Afters wrap up the tastiest beer tasting hours from 6:15-8:00 pm.

Okay, but like, what about the beers? We’ll have 24 beers on tap representing local, regional, and national breweries, all spanning 20 flavorful categories. Feature brews include Wicked Weed Brewing’s IPA Appalachia, Trim Tab’s Berliner Weiss Paradise Now, Blackstone Brewing Company’s Nut Brown Ale, Dogfish Head’s Hazy-O-IPA, and plenty more. If you want to know more about the feature beers on tap you’re going to have to put on your explorer hat and take a spin on down to the festival to try them for yourself. For just $20 you can score the Unlimited Beer Tasting Bracelet. The Unlimited Beer Tasting option gives you a sweet 1oz solo cup allowing you to sample all 24 beers however many times you want. Talk about a serious thirst quencher!
