Virginia Craft Brewers GuildThe Virginia Craft Brewers Guild is hosting the first-ever Virginia Internatinonal Raceway Craft Beer Fest in the VIR Gallery building from 3-8 p.m. on Aug. 3.

Approximately 30 VCBG brewery members from across the Commonwealth will serve unlimited tastings from some 64 different craft beers. Southern Virginia breweries and 2019 Virginia Craft Beer Cup medalists will be specially featured. Music and outdoor games will be provided by the event’s signature sponsor – the Virginia Lottery.
