Chincoteague Saltwater Brew 'N' Que

If you are anything like me you enjoy some great BBQ to go with your beer. Maybe you made it in a crockpot, smoked it on your own, or just went out and bought it but there is something special about the combination of beer and BBQ. Well to kick off the beginning of warmer days there is a new festival happening out in Chincoteague for all you beer and BBQ lovers that the Virginia Beer Blog heard about. I'm pretty excited about this for a few reasons...I love beer, I love BBQ, and being that close to the water sounds like an outstanding way to spend a weekend.

According to their site there will be 17 different breweries that encompass the varying flavors of Virginia as well as some close breweries (Heavy Seas, Dogfish Head, Flying Dog) that offer some great options as well! Additionally there will be music, a kids zone, unlimited beer tasting (!), a wing competition...oh, and an official Kansas City BBQ Society competition! Between the two days there will be more to do than I think I've seen at most festivals around the state, and as this is the inaugural Brew 'N' Que it can only get better from here!

The Brew 'N' Que begins on Friday, April 24th and goes through Saturday, the 25th and looks like a great excuse to drive out to Chincoteague to enjoy some of the state's best breweries (unlimited pours!) as well as some of the best barbeque in the country! Tickets are $15 presale, $25 the day of...both of which are some amazing prices for the number of breweries showing up, entertainment, etc. There is also a suggested donation of $5 at the door with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Department.

I attended a festival in Chincoteague a few years ago and have to say it is one of the best venues for an event like this. With the warmer weather, great setting, and lineup of food and beer you can't go wrong checking this out. If the trip is a long one for you the website also offers some hotel deals. This looks like an amazing chance to go visit Chincoteague, drink some great beers, and eat some BBQ! If any of that sounds appealing, which why wouldn't it?!, then check out their site and buy some tickets!
