This Saturday April 12th RVA ROCK$ and Fetch-A-Cure present the first beer festival of the season with OnTap Beer Festival on Mayo Island from Noon to 5pm. I would be going if I did not have out of town plans so I need you to do a little reporting for me.
First you will need tickets. Tickets are $25 (general admission) or $40 (VIP) if you buy online here. Ticket prices will go up at the door; $30 GA, $50 VIP.
Got your ticket? Your general admission tikcet gets you unlimited samples of 24 beers from Richmond breweries with live music and a selection of food trucks. Yes, you can buy a full pint for $6/7 but you can always go back and get another sample of a beer you really like. VIP admission will get you in at 11am plus a catered VIP section, preferred parking, and more. Designated drivers will be granted FREE admission.
