This festival features New Jersey-only craft beer, restaurants, chefs and food trucks, with a mouth-watering array of BBQ & bacon creations available for purchase. Jersey Pride can be found here!

Thirty great New Jersey breweries will be in attendance, each pouring three styles of beer–and one of these styles will either a rare beer or a brew specifically created for the festival!

The Beer BBQ Bacon Showdown will take place outdoors and under tents. Attendees will also enjoy fabulous live music Street Hassle & The Brass Balls.

And to add to the all-Jersey excitement, there will be a competition to showcase culinary skills, with a panel of NJ celebrity judges choosing the best of the best, along with People’s Choice awards for Best Dish & Best Beer.

The VIP Hour (sponsored by New Jersey Craft Beer) takes place from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. and will feature a meet and greet with the Brewers, Pitmasters & Chefs, first access to rare & special beers and a delicious buffet prepared by Chef Chris Masey. The buffet is exclusive to VIP ticket holders. Carton Brewing will also be offering two styles of beer during VIP hour only. VIP ticket holders also receive a special 5 year anniversary glass.

Both VIP and General Admission ticket holders will enjoy samples of beer, a mason jar mug and People’s Choice Ballot.
