RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The Virginia Craft Brewers Fest is going virtual this year.

If you are a craft beer enthusiast, you will have seven days this October to join a virtual tasting series and interact with brewers and owners from all across Virginia.

The event will be held on CrowdCast, the Virginia Craft Brewers Guild’s virtual event platform.

“Week 1 features 11 of the 2020 Virginia Craft Beer Cup Gold Medalists, and October 26 will be dedicated to celebrating Farm Breweries in the Commonwealth,” a release said.

Our Virtual Tasting Series will take you into each brewery’s operations as they discuss their selected beers of choice. Finding clever ways to engage and stay connected with our beer community is extremely important during this time,” said new VCBG Chair Janell Zurschmeide, Dirt Farm Brewing.
