NORFOLK, Va. – August is Virginia Craft Beer Month (yes, really), and Norfolk-based O’Connor Brewing has teamed up with Virginia Craft Beer Magazine to celebrate.

Together, they plan to host “Dazed and Consumed: Summer Invitational,” a statewide brewery invitational, August 4. Food trucks, live music and a large variety of craft beer will all be featured.

The event currently features 15 Virginia breweries:

  • Alewerks Brewing Company (Williamsburg)
  • The Answer Brewpub (Richmond)
  • Ardent Craft Ales (Richmond)
  • Aslin Beer Company (Herndon)
  • Basic City Beer Co. (Waynesboro)
  • Benchtop Brewing Company (Norfolk)
  • Brothers Craft Brewing (Harrisonburg)
  • Final Gravity Brewing Co. (Henrico)
  • Hardywood Park Craft Brewery
  • New Realm Brewing (Virginia Beach)
  • Origin Beer Lab (Ashland)
  • Precarious Beer Project (Williamsburg)
  • Reason Beer (Charlottesville)
  • Stone Brewing Richmond
  • Väsen Brewing Company (Richmond)

According to the event’s Facebook page, all of the beers will be of a limited variety that have never been distributed to the Hampton Roads area, so there is no set menu at this time.

The tasting will run from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., but the party will continue with live bluegrass music at 7 p.m.

With general admission tickets, upon entering patrons will receive a limited edition tasting glass for unlimited pours of festival beers. Tickets start at $35 and can be purchased on the event’s Facebook page.
