Brewfest on Tap for August 8

The Bradford Area Chamber of Commerce is brewing up some fun for August with their first-ever Bradford Summer Brewfest.

Bradford Summer Brewfest is scheduled for Thursday, August 8th from 6-9pm at the Bradford Township Community Club on Irving Lane and is open to the public. The event, presented by the Bradford Area Chamber of Commerce and Glenwood Beer Distributors, is designed to offer attendees the chance to sample a wide variety of craft beers.

Glenwood Beer Distributors will be offering samples of a variety of flavors from seven different breweries: Great Lakes Brewing Company, VooDoo Brewery, Penn Brewery, Tenth and Blake, Leinenkugal Brewing Company, Elysian Brewery, and Rivertowne Brewing Company. All beers sampled during the event will be flavors not offered during the original Bradford Brewfest in February. Additional beers and other beverages will be available for purchase from the beer trailer, including Mike’s Frozen pouches in black cherry, margarita, strawberry lemonade, and lemonade flavors.

Tickets are available at the Bradford Area Chamber of Commerce, 121 Main Street, Bradford, PA from 10am-4pm Monday through Friday, and at the gate during the event. $20 per person includes a souvenir sampling glass, ten craft beer sample tickets, and a door prize ticket. Designated Driver tickets are also available for $10 per person and include free soda and water. All attendees must be 21 or older, and must bring appropriate identification – IDs will be scanned at the entrance. Everyone attending must register at the entrance to receive their wristband designating full ticket or designated driver. Wristbands are required to be served any beverage or food at the event.

Bradford Summer Brewfest will also feature the BACC 200 Club drawing, the Chamber’s popular 50/50 raffle drawing. 200 Club tickets are on sale now through the Chamber office or any BACC Board member. Each $50 200 Club ticket includes a $10 discount off one admission to the Bradford Summer Brewfest, and the chance to win one of twenty-seven cash prizes, ranging from $100 to $1,000, for a total of $5,000 in prize money.

Additional features of the Bradford Summer Brewfest will be a Chinese auction, one-of-a-kind Case knife auction, Home Brew Contest, and live music from local favorites, Clean Slate. Bradford Summer Brewfest t-shirts will be available to purchase, and door prize drawings will be held throughout the evening.

Bradford Township Lions Club will have their famous chicken bbq, hot dogs, and hamburgers available for purchase as well.

Proceeds from Bradford Summer Brewfest will go toward Chamber programming, including the Phase 2 Holiday Lighting Campaign.
