The 4th Annual MVCBF, bringing together local food, local beer, & local music will be on March 24th, 2013!



Come for the beer, stay for the food. Come for the food, stay for the beer. Either way, you need to be here.

Most beer festivals are all about standing in line to get your taster and then standing in another line for another taster. Food is almost always an afterthought. That's not how we do things at the MVCBF Fest. We believe beer AND food are natural partners and we offer a wide variety of both. Our food vendors are all chefs who bring their "A" game to the table. It's part of our unique identity that we refuse to lose.

30 Breweries and a full 20 Chefs... we're not messing around here.

Add to that, 3 fantastic bands and a partnership with Wounded Warrior Homes, and you have a spectacular day of food, beer and fun for a great cause.

Wounded Warrior Homes is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization that serves medically discharged, single men and women of our armed forces with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Our mission is to provide affordable housing, hands-on resources, and a defined path for each member to transition from active-duty military service to independent living as a veteran of foreign wars.

The improvements we made last year are still in full effect:
-VIP Hour- the first hour of the festival will be a limited ticket VIP hour with full access to the chefs and brewers. VIP Ticket holders will also receive an MVCBF T-shirt (while supplies and sizes last)
-BIG festival layout to keep lines from clogging that has allowed us to include more all theses breweries and chefs.
- A large seating area to sit and enjoy all the food, beer, and atmosphere. (this is a biggie)
- Commemorative tasting glasses.

To keep the party rolling, well also be hosting an after party in our fabulous Reef Lounge with food and beverage specials and yet another band. Local Beers. Local Food. Local Music. One hell of a good time.... MVCBF Festival IV!

VIP Hour Admission will be at 1PM
General Admission will be at 2PM
The festival will end at 5PM.

Discounted room rates are available here.
