Plus there'll be a special Festival brew collaboratively crafted by a representative brewer from each participating establishment.

Hemingway's Breweries CEO and co-founder Tony Fyfe says it'll be a chance for local craft beer enthusiasts to toast the creativity and success of the region's craft beer. 

"Our event is really an open invitation to anyone and everyone who want's to celebrate the industry's meteoric rise, learn about the art of craft beer making from the experts and most importantly, have some fun." He said.
