Jersey Drafts and Crafts Beer Fest
You know that Jersey is pretty much the best at everything, right? Our beaches are top notch, our farm produce is delicious, and, even though the rest of the world makes fun of diners, we’re glad we have seventeen within walking distance of anywhere in the state. Beats the hell out of Denny’s. (Though, honestly, we’d kill for a Waffle House.)
And, please. Don’t even try to feed us pizza made anywhere else.
With all of the great things about the Garden State, it only stands to reason that we’ve got the best beer to offer, as well.
That’s why the Garden State Craft Brewers Guild is sponsoring the Jersey Drafts and Crafts Beer Fest!
On Saturday, September 16, starting at 12pm, over thirty New Jersey breweries and distilleries will be on hand at iPlay America for a day filled with all of the great things New Jersey has to offer: beer, music, and food.
“We are excited to host the first Jersey Made Beer Fest, this an awesome event that benefits our non-profit trade organization,” said Guild Executive Director Jason Carty. “The New Jersey craft beverage industry continues to grow, and this festival will feature breweries and distilleries from all over the state. New Jersey is making great beer, and our breweries have won countless awards. Distilleries in our state are becoming very popular, and we are proud to partner with several of them for this awesome event.”
There’ll be Jersey-made cheese, chocolate, beef jerky, and crafts. In addition, there’ll be live music throughout the day.
And, of course, CMBC will be on hand. Jenna from our Events staff and Eddie from the brewhouse will be pouring your favorite CMBC brews.
“I’m jazzed for the event,” Ryan says, wearing his Guild prez hat. “It’s the first time we’ve ever had distilleries and breweries together at a Guild event.”
Attendees will receive a commemorative cup, unlimited tastings, and access to some great food and fun.
Furthermore, attendees will receive a 50% discount for iPlay America, so the kids can go crazy inside while you enjoy yourself outside. They’ll be able to explore one of New Jersey’s largest arcades and its many rides, Boardwalk games, attractions, and video games.
There are a limited number of VIP passes available, entitling the holders to a special VIP entrance and access to special and limited brews.
