The Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival Hits Richmond, VA, May 30

by Carrie Dow on May 1, 2015 in Event Listing

The big B’s are here, Beer, Bourbon and BBQ, all in one place. And where might that be? Find them at the Richmond Raceway Complex in Richmond, VA, on Saturday, May 30.

Leave your cholesterol worries at the door as you dive whole hog into this huge food and drink event. There will be live music, tasting seminars, tons of food and unlimited sampling of beer and bourbon. All this feasting starts at 2 PM.

There are expected to be 40 bourbons and 60 beers on tap and BBQ stations galore. The BBQ is a la carte, but the festival promises to “keep the portions heavy and prices low.” There will also be a Shrine of Swine featuring pulled pork right from the source with a new pig every hour. And don’t forget to feed your brain at seminars in the Tasting Theater with Master Distillers, Brewmasters and Pitmasters from the Deep South.

Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 on-site, while VIP tickets are $49 and sold in advance only. VIP tickets allow early entry for tastings starting at noon. All guests receive a souvenir tasting glass, and the first 100 guests for each session receive a free “collectible” BBBQ t-shirt. Designated Driver tickets are $25 in advance and on-site. Tickets are available here.

In addition to all the food and drinks, a variety of vendors, including Breweriana, hot sauces, BBQ accessories and a cigar tent, will be set up for all guests to peruse. Enjoy live rock, blues and bluegrass music on the Main Stage all afternoon.

The festival is located at the Richmond Raceway Complex at 600 E Laburnum Ave., and a portion of the event proceeds will go to Spirit of Hope Children’s Foundation. The Beer Bourbon and BBQ Festival is traveling to other cities all summer long so check the website for more locations.
