The Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival returns to the Atlantic City Convention Center for its 11th installment on April 8th – 9th! This year’s “Celebration of the Suds” will debut some exciting new elements to round out this constantly evolving event. Beer enthusiasts, music aficionados and avid runners alike will be brought together to indulge in all of the things they crave during the 2016 Festival!
New to the roster in 2016 is the 1st Annual Hops Trot taking place on Saturday, April 9th, at 10:00 AM and is open to anyone attending Session 2 only. This 5K Run will send racers around town to some of Atlantic City’s favorite watering holes, including Steel Pier, Margaritaville, Chickie's & Pete's Harry's Oyster Bar & a satellite bar from Ducktown Tavern at Kennedy Plaza!. The Finish Line will be at the Convention Center just in time for Session 2 of The Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival. Costumes are encouraged! For more information and to sign up for the 1st Annual Hops Trot, visit www.acbeerfest.com/hopstrot.
Attendees in 2016 will see over 1,000 different beers from 150 breweries, from around the corner to across the country who will showcase their unique libations. The goal of The Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival is to promote and educate attendees on craft beers and the brew masters that create them. This event is the perfect opportunity for beer geeks, beer lovers and beer beginners to speak to the brains behind the brews. It is also an opportunity to discover and taste new brews and special “limited release” beers and ales.
In addition to the endless selection of beer and the superior music acts, the 2016 Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival will also feature culinary demonstrations by local chefs; educational seminars and some "off the wall" activities, including toilet bowl races, hot wing eating contests, field goal kick contests and much more. Additional festival vendors will offer great food and unique beer-related apparel and goods, sure to appeal to everyone.
