THE BATTLE BEGINS 9/8/2018
6th Annual 757 Battle of the Beers - Details announced March 2018
Hunt Club Farm
757 Battle of the Beers is presented by Beach Ambassadors, and is the only festival in Hampton Roads that features local 757 Craft Breweries as they battle it out to win in different beer categories – with 100% of the proceeds go to local Hampton Roads charities! At this annual award-winning and unique event, local breweries put their best brews on tap and are rated by an official beer tasting panel and by attendees of the event to see which beer is the best in the 7-5-7. With 50% of the event’s proceeds going to local non-profit St. Mary’s Home, the other 50% is split across the winning brewers’ chosen charities! At 757 Battle of the Beers, you get to party, try local beers, eat delicious food and support Hampton Road’s charities in the process!
Started by Beach Ambassadors in 2013, 757 Battle of the Beers has grown every year both in number of event attendees and the amount raised for a local Hampton Roads charity. In 2015, Beach Ambassadors’ 757 Battle of the Beers event won VEER Magazine’s award for “Best Beer Event” category. In 2016, over 1500 patrons attended the event, raising over $20,000 for 4 local charities (3 of which were the winning breweries’ charities of choice). At the 5th Annual 757 Battle of the Beers 2017, over 2000 patrons attended the event, raising over $30,000 for 4 local charities. In 2017, Beach Ambassadors’ 757 Battle of the Beers event won VEER Magazine’s award for “Best Outdoor Beer Festival”.
The one-of-a-kind event features live music, food, tastings of every featured beer (two beers from each brewery = a LOT of craft beer!), corn hole, giant beer pong, and more! This event is in it’s 6th year – and the battle will be bigger and better than ever before!
