100.7 WZXL Presents the 2017 Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival
The Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival Continues to Bring the Fun for 12 Years!
Voted as one of the best Beer Festivals in the United States by USA Today Readers, The Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival is coming back to the Atlantic City Convention Center March 31st through April 1st for another year of craft beer, headlining music acts and flat out fun!
For the 12th year running, the folks of Good Time Tricycle Productions are compiling the top names in the craft beer industry under one roof to pour their delicious brews for thirsty beer lovers. However, this festival is more than just beer! The Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival will feature top touring acts including Flogging Molly, The Front Bottoms and Streetlight Manifesto to entertain beer aficionados and music lovers alike!
In 2016, the first annual Hops Trot 5K was a huge success seeing 500 festive runners! This year’s Hops Trot will take place Saturday, April 1st at 10:30 AM in conjunction with Session 2 of the Festival. This fun run will send racers around town to some of Atlantic City’s favorite watering holes, ending at the Convention Center just in time for Session 2 of The Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival. Costumes are encouraged! For more information and to sign up for the 2nd Annual Hops Trot 5K run, visit http://www.hopstrot5k.com/.
Attendees in 2017 will see over 1,000 different beers from 150 breweries, from around the corner to across the country who will showcase their unique libations. The goal of The Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival is to promote and educate attendees on craft beers and the brew masters that create them. This event is the perfect opportunity for beer geeks, beer lovers and beer beginners to speak to the brains behind the brews. It is also an opportunity to discover and taste new brews and special “limited release” beers and ales.
If the beer and music isn’t enough, the 2017 Festival will also feature 10 well-known Atlantic City Restaurants serving up their world-famous cuisine, culinary demonstrations, educational seminars, side show acts and some "off the wall" activities, including toilet bowl races, hot wing eating contests, yoga, larger-than-life corn hole, and Silent Disco! Additional festival vendors will offer unique beer-related apparel and goods, sure to appeal to everyone.
