6th Annual 757 Battle of the Beers
Camp Pendleton – Virginia Beach, VA
757 Battle of the Beers is presented by Beach Ambassadors, and is the only festival in Hampton Roads, VA that features only local 757 Craft Breweries as they battle it out to win in different beer categories. 100% of the event’s proceeds goes to local Hampton Roads charities! At this annual award-winning and unique event, local breweries put their best brews on tap and are judged by a brewer panel and by event attendees. 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!
Started by Beach Ambassadors in 2013, 757 Battle of the Beers has grown every year both in number of event attendees and in regards to the amount raised for Hampton Roads charities. In 2015, Beach Ambassadors’ 757 Battle of the Beers event won VEER Magazine’s award for “Best Beer Event” category. In 2016, over 1,500 attendees helped raise 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 2,000 attendees helped raise 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, includes food and of course 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!
