Beach Ambassadors, Veer Magazine and Virginia Craft Beer Magazine to Host 8th Annual “757 Battle of the Beers” Event to Benefit Hampton Roads Charities on September 26, 2020

Virginia Beach, VA – More than 30 Hampton Roads breweries and cider makers will be participating in the 8th Annual 757 Battle of the Beers presented by Beach Ambassadors, Veer Magazine, and Virginia Craft Beer Magazine, on Saturday, September 26th at Camp Pendleton in Virginia Beach. The event that benefits multiple Hampton Roads-based charities became the area’s longest-running local beer festival and attracted a record number of attendees in 2019.

“We felt that 2019 was our best event yet and we expect the trend to continue” said Shawn Fischer, Event Chair for Beach Ambassadors. Now in its second year, the partnership between Beach Ambassadors, Veer Magazine, and Virginia Craft Beer Magazine was formed to streamline and strengthen the area’s award-winning and only 757-exclusive beer festival. “There’s a reason Veer Magazine readers and judges agree 757 Battle of the Beers is the region’s best beer festival – it is. We greatly appreciate our partnership with Beach Ambassadors – good people doing good things for our community.” said Veer Magazine Publisher, Jeff Maisey. Proceeds from this year’s event will again benefit St. Mary’s Home, Hope House Foundation, and other local non-profits chosen by the participating brewers.

A full Brewer list and event details will be announced in early May. Last year’s category winners included The Garage Brewery (Chesapeake), Tradition Brewing Company (Newport News), and Big Ugly Brewing Company (Chesapeake). Tickets to the event (VIP and General Admission) will be available online and at participating breweries starting May 1, 2020.
