There’s a brand new beer festival in town—The West Chester Craft Beer Festival. The inaugural event will take place at the Charles A. Melton Arts and Education Center from 1–5 p.m. on June 17, with more than 50 breweries scheduled to be pouring samples of their best beers.
Breweries that will be in attendance include locals like 2SP, Boxcar Brewing, Conshohocken Brewing, Crowded Castle, La Cabra Brewing, Levante, Locust Lane, Root Down, Sly Fox, Sterling Pig, Stickman Brews and Victory.
The event will also feature food trucks, craft vendors and live music by Brian Fitzy. There’s no reason to worry about parking. Organizers have reserved the Henderson High School parking lot for attendees, with a short shuttle ride available to and from the event.
Tickets are $40 for general admission and $50 for VIP, which includes early entry, plus a lanyard to hold your tasting glass.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Charles A. Melton Arts and Education Center. The Mission of the historic center is to contribute to the quality of life for all people in the greater West Chester community by continuing its long commitment of providing educational, recreational, cultural and civic services.
