Picture this: you’re at Virginia’s largest craft beer festival, toasting the end of summer at the world’s most beautiful theme park. Not a bad way to end a season, right? That’s what we love about Williamsburg, Virginia—even the transitions between seasons are looked at as a chance to celebrate. There are no goodbyes here, only “see you next year”s! We couldn’t be more excited that Busch Gardens Bier Fest is Back!
From August 12 through September 5, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday is a chance to choose from 125 craft brews representing 69 breweries (33 of which are in Virginia). You can also choose from signature cocktails and savory, beer-infused treats. While you sip and savor, enjoy entertainment from live local bands and learn the secrets of the craft from local brewers during Brewery Talks. And don’t miss Bürgermeister’s Hideaway—an all-new speakeasy experience that promises lovers of spirits something truly special.
