Claudius Crozet Park Press Release:

Crozet, VA – The Crozet Winter Brews Festival, a celebration of dark beers from Virginia brewers, will take place on Saturday, December 8, 2018 at Claudius Crozet Park in historic Crozet, VA. All proceeds for this new event benefit the non-profit, community-owned and operated Park and its mission of providing affordable recreation for all.

Taking a cue from the cooler weather and shorter days, the First Annual Crozet Winter Brews Festival will feature 15 Virginia breweries sampling their porters, stouts, and other darker seasonal brews. With both well-known and smaller breweries in attendance, the Festival will offer an exciting tasting experience for dark beer connoisseurs. There will be food trucks, live music, and other entertainment and festivities. A ballot will be provided for visitors to vote on the sampled beers in a friendly yet cut-throat competition resulting in the (soon-to-be) coveted Claudius Awards, bestowed for individual divisions;and Best in Show.
The Crozet Winter Brews Festival is supported by Starr Hill Brewery, who will be hosting;the post-Festival party with live music at their Tap Room in Crozet, after the Festival ends on December 8. $1 from each pint sold at the Tap Room will be donated to the Park. The Festival is also partnering with;Hop-On-Tours, who will provide free shuttle access from Charlottesville directly to the Festival and back again - keeping Festival-goers safe and responsible!
