Asbury Park Beerfest tickets
Asbury Park Beerfest is an all-weekend affair held at Convention Hall in Asbury Park, New Jersey. It includes sessions to allow all beer enthusiasts a chance to sample the eclectic variety of brews from vendors from all across the country. Asbury Park Beerfest tickets for the event are sold per session so you must plan accordingly.
Each session of the event lasts four hours, which is ample time for most people to sample the 60 or so brews from the on-site vendors. Of these, around a dozen are from the host state. On top of the craft brews, hard ciders and retro brews, boardwalk type food is available for attendees to enjoy.
Asbury Park Beerfest history
Asbury Park Beerfest is a fairly new event in the Jersey Shore area. It has had a strong presence in the brewery scene since the first festival in 2011. What started as a one-day event has blossomed into the current event that officially spans two days broken up into three sessions.
It has also expanded to include unofficial before and after parties for people who want to enjoy events beyond the official Asbury Park Beerfest schedule. Nearby breweries and venues host these parties, which usually include an expanded beer selection and live music.
At the official event, breweries compete for the award for fan favorite brew. Samplers who cast a vote for their favorite of the session can get access to a top-secret sampling room, which is a coveted honor for many of the people who return year after year.
Asbury Park Beerfest atmosphere
The crowd at the Asbury Park Beerfest is a very casual group, and seeing people in blue jeans and short-sleeved shirts isn't unusual. Nobody under 21 years old is allowed into the event, so this isn't a family affair. One thing that samplers need to know is that the pretzel necklace is a must for this event. Some people include only pretzels on the yarn necklace, but other people have stepped up their game to include other treats, such as wrapped beef sticks.
Since the event is held inside the convention hall, festival goers don't have to worry about being out in the elements. The facility is climate-controlled, with indoor restrooms. It is accessible for people in wheelchairs; however, navigating through the maze of booths and tents might prove to be a bit of a challenge.
