Come for the beer, stay for the food. Come for the food, stay for the beer. Either way you need to be here.

Most beer festivals are all about standing in line to get your taster and then go and stand in another line for another taster. Food is almost always an afterthought. However, that’s not how we do things at the MVCBF Festival. We believe beer AND food are natural partners and we offer a wide variety of both. Our food vendors are all chefs who bring their “A” game to the table. It’s part of our unique identity that we refuse to lose.

30 Breweries and a full 20 Chefs… Take a look!.

Those folks will give you what’s you’ll be eating and drinking. But what are we sticking in your ear? … Here’s our band line-up!

-Leading off in our VIP hour will be alternative/popular rock ear candy provided by Danny and the Tramp.

– The middle of the festival will be manned by the dance-hall reggae groove of So*Cal Vibes.

– Closing the show for this stellar line-up will be the beach rock reggae of Split Finger.

And for those of you joining us at the Reef Lounge After Party we’re bringing you Safety Orange who have been at three of the four festivals.

Add to that our partnership with Wounded Warrior Homes, and you have a spectacular day of food, beer and fun for a great cause.

Wounded Warrior Homes is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization that serves medically discharged, single men and women of our armed forces with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Our mission is to provide affordable housing, hands-on resources, and a defined path for each member to transition from active-duty military service to independent living as a veteran of foreign wars.

The improvements we made last year are still in full effect:

-VIP Hour- the first hour of the festival will be a limited ticket VIP hour with full access to the chefs and brewers. VIP Ticket holders will receive a free MVCBF tee shirt (while supplies and sizes last)
-BIG festival layout to keep lines from clogging that has allowed us to include more all theses breweries and chefs.
– A large seating area to sit and enjoy all the food, beer, and atmosphere. (this is a biggie)
– Commemorative tasting glasses.

To keep the party rolling, we’ll also be hosting an after party in our fabulous Reef Lounge with food and beverage specials and yet another band.

Local Beers. Local Food. Local Music.

30 Brewers; 20 Chefs; 4 Bands; 1 helluva good time….

MVCBF Festival IV!
