About the Beer Festival

The Blue Ridge Parkway & the New River offer some of the best scenery in Southwest Virginia. Which makes it the perfect setting for our Virginia beer festival.

The Summer Brewfest

Summertime & Craft Beer… need we say more?? There’s no better way to spend a summer day than sampling some cold craft brews, nibbling on some awesome brick oven cuisine and listening to some great live music. This is what the BEERFEST in Fries, VA on the rockin’ New River is all about! Make sure to bring a lawn chair so you’ll have a place to sit!

What makes our festival extra special? For starters, the breweries attending! We’ve brought in some of the best breweries in and around Virginia! Including our very own local brewery Creek Bottom Brewing Company!

Along with the great beer is cool giveaways, great scenery, live music, and tons of things to do in Fries, nearby Galax, and on the New River Trail! So If you’re looking for one of the best local beer tasting events, then our brewfest is for you!

Who Are We?

Want to know who put this all together?

The brewery behind this great festival is Creek Bottom Brewing in Galax, VA! They’re just a hop and skip from Fries and make some great beers and great food that will be at the festival.

We also would like to thank the Fries Community Center in Fries, VA. Their help with the festival has been invaluable! The community center houses the library and Fries Historic Theater and is a great place to find fun local events!
