The ultimate craft beer block party, this 400-foot custom bar will be pouring beers from 60+ taps, including local guest taps from: Parkway Brewing Co., Chaos Mountain Brewing, Big Lick Brewing Co., Flying Mouse Brewery and Soaring Ridge Craft Brewers. 100% of proceeds from this event will go to charity. In Roanoke, primary nonprofit partners include Roanoke Outside Foundation, Blue Ridge Land Conservancy and Feeding America Southwest Virginia.

The event will not only feature an enormous amount of beer, but Deschutes Brewery’s corporate executive chef, Jeff Usinowicz, is teaming up with local River & Rail Chef Aaron Deal and Fortunato Chef Jeff Farmer to create culinary delights to pair perfectly with said beers. Local, live music on two stages from bands such as My Radio, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, Place Called Home, Eternal Summers, Dharma Bombs, Floorboards, Funky Dawgz Brass Band and River Whyless will help to round out the festivities.
