The Stars of Craft Beer Fest boasts as being the first authentic beer fest in the Lehigh Valley. Being that its inaugural year was 2013, this may be a dubious claim. But regardless of the pecking order in which this festival of suds arrived, this event hits all the right notes. Anyone who knows anything about beer understands that when it comes to respecting the craft, hitting the right notes is all that matters.
The Craft Beer Fest is all about quality beer. Local beverage distributors act as sponsors to the event and their trained owners and staff hand pick over fifty quality beers from PA breweries and a handful extra from the surrounding regions. Admission to the event also includes food samples, access to various vendors, and a complimentary event glass. Live music entertainment plays through the afternoon.
For those anxious to get into the show hall, special VIP tickets give patrons an hour head start on the sampling, before the general admission. The extra hour is also a great time to interact with the brewers. VIP ticket holders also have access to the VIP lounge, replete with specialty snacks.
Admission cost is moderate and VIP passes cost extra. Parking is through the municipal parking.
