HOW IT WORKS –
Upon entry at 61st St. and Maple, you get an official BBF tasting glass (yours to keep). From there, it’s all you can, reasonably, drink. We’ll have brewers, representatives and volunteers pouring 2oz. samples of craft & import beers. There’ll be food available from local restaurants. The Fest will end precisely at 7pm. Don’t get here too late!
THE STORY OF BENSON BEER FEST:
One afternoon, over a round of beers, the managers of Jake’s & Krug Park noted the astronomical rise of interest in Craft-Beer. Americans are drinking Pale Ales, Stouts, Ciders and more. But, many beer festivals serve the same-old stale lagers and craft-imposters. So, we decided to step in and do it right. Benson Beer Festival is all about the beer. With a sharp focus on quality-made Craft and Import Beers, we’re a bit different. We select each beer with careful attention. We try hard to provide a wide-array of beers and ciders, light to dark, sweet to dry and everything in-between. You’ll also notice a large section of Benson Beer Fest devoted to Home-Brewers. Working with local Home-Brewer Clubs, we present a unique opportunity for them to present their creations to the public.
Benson Beer Festival is produced by Jake’s Cigars & Spirits and Krug Park, with support from The Waiting Room and Beercade. All profits go to making next years fest bigger and better.
