Rustico’s Novemberfest Beer Celebration | Fireman Mike | Old Town Post


Rustico will be holding their annual NovemberFest on Saturday, November 7, 2015.  The NovemberFest is a celebration of craft beers in Virginia.  There are some superb beers on the beer list.

The following description of the event was taken from Rustico’s Facebook page:

It’s time for Rustico Alexandria’s 4th annual Novemberfest! Join us on Saturday, November 7th from 12-5 PM as we tap over 50 craft-brewed ales and lagers, all from our home state of Virginia!

Our Beer Director, Greg Engert, is sourcing a killer lineup of Virginia craft beers spanning a dizzying array of flavors and styles, with 30 of the finest Virginia brewers bringing their very best for this occasion. Expect strong stouts and potent porters, pumpkin ales and session brews, fresh-hop harvest ales, IPAs, sours and barrel-aged beauties–each brewed locally by the burgeoning bevy of Virginia craft brewers. And for the second consecutive year, Greg is procuring beers from a dozen brewers rarely found in Northern Virginia, including six brewers who will be making their NoVa debut: The Answer Brewpub, Chaos Mountain, Rusty Beaver and Smartmouth!

We’ll have plenty of hearty dishes to satisfy your hunger, including smoked turkey legs, Old Bay fried chicken wings, pimento mac & cheese, BBQ pork sandwiches, half smokes & hot dogs, poutine, cider doughnuts, pumpkin spice doughnuts and more. And to round out the afternoon, we’ll have live entertainment from local bands, Big Hoax & Plank Stompers, plus games and more family-friendly fun!

Admission is $10 at the door and a portion of the proceeds go to our nonprofit friends at Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture. Kids under 14 are free. Advance passes aren’t required, however, if you pre-purchase online you’ll save $5 on admission: http://rusticonovemberfest.eventbrite.com/ Food and drink tickets will be sold a la carte to be used inside the event; $1 = 1 ticket. 14-ounce full beers will average from 5 to 8 tickets, while 6-ounce tasting portions will be available for approximately half the price.
