Mega Fresh Fest in the Woods
Sat Jun 17, 2023 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM 42245 Black Hops Ln, Lucketts, VA, 20176
About Event:
Mega Fresh Fest, Juicy Brewing Companyís first ever beer festival, is coming to Northern Virginia on June 17, 2023! This is going to be a celebration of the Juicy story and those around us who are a part of it. The venue is at Vanish Brewing's Pavilion space; out in the incredible Virginian nature! Just picture it: trees, rolling lawn, creek, and a beautifully rustic barn. We will have live DJ sessions with chill house and trance music as the soundtrack to all of this, a cigar bar, and a special VIP area. We have more than 20 breweries coming from all across the United States, and even a few from other countries!

Come out and enjoy beers from (this is just a teaser list, more to come):

Mortalis
Ocelot
Imprint
Burley Oak
Dewey
Cushwa
Crooked Run
Commonwealth
Corporate Ladder
Resident Culture
Sapwood
FourScore
Branch & Blade
Celestial Beerworks
Heavy Reel
Frequentem Brewing
Drekker
Dreamstate
La Pirata (Spain)
Ill Will
Dancing Gnome

About GA:
General admission tickets get you entry into the Mega Fresh Fest with a tasting glass to try all the beer you could want from all of our featured breweries! There will be food trucks on site, as well as cigars for purchase. We can't wait for you to join us and enjoy the music, Virginia landscape, and delicious libations! Don't sleep on our fest!

About VIP:
We have a limited amount of VIP tickets, which include everything from general admission plus a few extra good perks! The VIP ticket also includes a 4 pack of our festival beer, a custom hat, a custom pint glass, and access to our VIP area with some surprises!

Note about DDs:
DD tickets aren't required for this event because Vanish Brewing is just up the driveway and should have plenty of food and soft drinks available for your DD to enjoy as they wait for you to emerge from the forest.

Get them while they're hot!

if you ever find yourself in central Washington state, on the east side of the Cascades (amazing hiking!), you should definitely consider visiting the quaint town of Leavenworth, WA, whose main claim to fame is that it looks more bavarian than most of actual Bavaria.  and while there, i strongly recommend that you visit Icicle Brewing.  these guys excel at hazies - not too surprising since they're located just north of Yakima...  their flagship, Alpenhaze, has won a bunch of medals recently at GABF, WBC, etc.  i recently got some 3-day-old cans of double Motueka Magic Meadows, which is possibly the best imp hazy i've ever had.

sad news

Obviously the big breweries remember how much money they lost buying breweries they knew nothing about

this has little chance of being bought out
And will just disappear

Their main beer seemed to get harder to find around here over the past five years.

I really liked them -and Sierra Nevada- for a good stretch.
