FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ...
Gettysburg Festival, Inc.
The Gettysburg Festival, Inc. is making plans for its inaugural Gettysburg Brew Fest to be held on Saturday, Aug. 23, 2014, on the historic grounds of the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Gettysburg. Featuring an impressive array of local, regional, Pennsylvania and national brewers, the Gettysburg Brew Fest is a fundraiser for the non-profit Gettysburg Festival, Inc.
The new event was approved unanimously at the Gettysburg Festival, Inc. monthly board meeting on Monday, Nov. 4.
With spectacular views of the Gettysburg Battlefield and South Mountains, set against the backdrop of the newly-opened Seminary Ridge Museum, the event will deliver a distinctive sampling experience.
“This event is already proving to be one of the most highly anticipated events in the Gettysburg area,” said Gettysburg Festival, Inc. Executive Director Randy Prasse. “While soliciting feedback from local businesses and residents over the past six months, it is clear to me that there is a high level of interest and strong demand from beer-enthusiasts throughout the region for an upscale brew festival in Gettysburg.”
The Gettysburg Brew Fest, which will run from 4:30-8 p.m., will not only offer an array of brews and hard ciders from the immediate region and throughout Pennsylvania but from around the country as well.
Gettysburg Festival, Inc. is partnering with BrewFest Partners, based in Racine, Wis., to organize the event. BrewFest Partners brings more than 25 years of festival management experience, including developing and managing more than 10 brew festivals in Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana.
“We are launching this event as a one-day, single-session experience, but depending on market interest and demand, we will certainly consider expanding it,” Prasse said.
Tickets are $45 when purchased in advance and $55 for private-session VIP passes. Tickets will go on sale in April on the Gettysburg Festival, Inc. website and attendance will be limited to 1,000 attendees.
