What to Expect at the Know Good Polar Beer Festival

At the Know Good Polar Beer Festival, vendors from all over the commonwealth come to the IX Art Park to serve up their craft ciders and brews. There will be unlimed 2-4 ounce samples of the beverages, which focus on winter brews, and of course all sorts of other flavors. This year’s event is called Polar Beer Fest because they have invited breweries to bring beers that are 8% ABV or higher. Enjoy live music and local food vendors as you sip on your favorite local beers and ciders. Additionally, 106.1 The Corner will be on-site hosting giveaways and blasting tunes all day for your enjoyment.

In addition to local food vendors, we can’t forget about the breweries who will be in attendance! Three Notch’d Brewing Co., Deschutes Brewery, Blue Moon, and Lagunitas Brewing Company are among the many well-known breweries at the festival. From down the road in Richmond, you will see Buskey Hard Cider, Vasen Brewing Company, and Stone Brewing Company. That’s just to name a few!
