You Barefootin' on July 11?

My beer buddy Chris de Peppe sent over this notice for  South Jersey beer nuts--or even for those who want to make the run down from The North. Chris always associates himself with quality in beerfests, so you will not be disappointed.


Icona Resort to Host Barefoot Beer Fest
Diamond Beach, NJ. June 9, 2015

Cape May County will be the site of a unique beach party this
summer when the inaugural Barefoot Beer Fest comes to the Icona Resort on Saturday, July 11th.

Representatives from over fifty craft breweries will set up beer stations all along Icona’s huge private beach where they will be pouring samples of their freshest beers, and ten New Jersey breweries will be on-site with their seasonal specialties and small-batch brews.

Local food vendors will add some smoke and aroma to the party and a beachfront beer garden will give guests a chance to relax and enjoy the food and beer with friends.

There will also be a presentation about the magic of hops and a discussion of hop-growing in New Jersey.

The event is produced by Icona Resort and TotalBRU Marketing, a company that runs successful craft beer fests in PA and NJ.

Tickets are $50 per person but there is an early bird discount. Tickets include unlimited two-ounce pours of all beers and one food sample ticket. Guests will receive a commemorative five-ounce tasting glass. Food will be available for purchase from a variety of local vendors. Vegetarian options and gluten-free beers and ciders will be offered. 

Designated drivers are encouraged and a special ticket for drivers is only $10 and includes alternative beverages and a meal ticket that can be redeemed at any food vendor. There will be two sessions: 12:30-4:00 and 5:00-8:30.
