New Craft Beverage and Food Festival coming to Beckley


BECKLEY, WV (WVNS) — Beer, Food, Music and Art all in one place! The West Virginia Food and Craft beverage festival is coming to Beckley Saturday, June 22. Organizers told 59News their goal is to get West Virginia crafters all in one place, including the breweries.

Weatherground Brewery is a popular place for locals to get craft beer. Aryn Fonda is the owner, along with her husband, and is bringing many different flavors to the festival.

“People are really excited about getting one of our beers back on tap which is camp life and so we’ll have that pale ale with us tomorrow. We’ll also bring some easy summertime drinking beers which people are excited about. We’ll have our hefeweizen there and we’re actually going to bring our cherry creek dip which is our sour,” Fonda said.

The festival will also feature wine and hard cider. But if you have to drive home, do not worry. They will also be serving Kombucha, specialty teas, and coffee.

Kayla Alred is the owner of Bucha brewhouse and Bistro. She said she will be featuring many of her homemade goods and kombucha.

“I’m gonna have a couple of my signature sandwiches. I’m going to have a new Kombucha flavor. It’s going to be a tangerine rose Kombucha flavor. And then I’m going to have some of my house made lemonade and house cold brew coffee, stuff like that,” Alred said.

There is plenty to keep the kids busy, too. Live bands will fill the room and there will even be mini escape rooms to try out.

Jamie Crews is the Owner and Operator of Out of the Box Room Escape. She said she will be featuring some games.

“We are bringing four of our portable escape rooms,” Crews said.
