Beer fans rejoice. The annual Northern Virginia Brewfest is happening this weekend June 21-22 at Morven Park in Leesburg.

The event, founded by Vintage 50 Restaurant and Beer Lounge, will be home to more than 80 beers, ciders, and meaderies from more than 60 businesses in the region.

New to this year's event will be VIP ticketing, which will allow purchasers special early access to the event and designated parking closer to the venue. VIP tickets will be $50 and there is a limit of 100.

Regular admission prices for the event are $30 at the gate, $20 if ordered before the event via extremetix.com.

The admission price includes four drink tickets, redeemable for four sample pourings and a sampling glass.

For out of town friends there is a bus to and from the Vienna Metro Station leaving at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. for $45. The bus ticket includes all that goes with an admission ticket and a round trip ride between the Vienna Metro Station and Morven Park.

Brewfest will stretch from noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday.

Designated drivers will be charged $10.

Food vendors will be on hand serving everything from kettle corn to oysters on the half-shell.

Five breweries will be in attendance from Loudoun including Old Ox, Lost Rhino, Crooked Run, Adroit Theory and Corcoran Brewing.

Also new to this year's festivities is a Cooking with Beer tent.

“The brew pubs around are doing a lot of brew pairings," said Bill Collins, event manager. "We're taking a little different tact with it, by using the beer as a main ingredient."

Military chef Joe Marino will be using beers one can locally buy to cook items like pickled carrots, salad dressings, marinades, sauces and even a beer cheesecake.

Caution: If you are trying to get to the event via GPS use 14793 Tutt Lane, Leesburg, VA 20176 as the address. As the website says "Do not use Morven Park as the address."



Judging by your comments you must be one of the vendors hoping to draw as many people in so you get a share of the entrance fees. I’ll stay as far as possible from your bath tub brew.

As for the game I plan to watch it at Clyde’s in Ashburn with my lady friend.  I would say hope to see you there, but it may be a bit out of your price range…

Enjoy the beerfest. Seems like the perfect venue for the “other 47 percent”.

What is the point of your comment? It is not a bunch of fat people eating and drinking. It is a mixed bag of folks enjoying themselves and an opportunity for local businesses to showcase products.

There is live music and other events, but you are not interested in finding out, so why do you ask?  You seem to have plans already.  The game is at 6pm Sunday.  Not sure how this impacts your Saturday or the other hours on Sunday.  Enjoy the game by yourself…I cannot imagine that you have many friends that want to hang out and watch it with you.

What is the point of this event ? Is it a bunch of fat people eating and drinking ?

Are there activities? How about a band ? Then I can see it worth $30. 4 beers for $30 seems a bit excessive. An extra $15 for transportation to and from Metro.

No thanks. I’ll watch the world cup at home on Sunday. If I am not mistaken USA is playing Portugal.
