Get Tickets To “Hoppy Valley Brewers Fest”, The First-Ever Beer Fest At Beaver Stadium

Beer sales were first approved in Penn State’s Beaver Stadium about 2 years ago, and now it’s getting a beer fest!

Hoppy Valley Brewers Fest, taking place on May 11th, 2024, will feature about 75 craft breweries (see the list below). The event is slated to run from 1-5 PM for General Admission tickets, and if you have VIP tickets, you’ll get in an hour earlier. (See below for full details!)

The Hoppy Valley Brewers Fest’s founding partners include Antifragile Brewing Company, Central Pennsylvania Tasting Trail, The Happy Valley Adventure Bureau, Happy Valley Sports & Entertainment Alliance, Brewers Of PA, and the Pennsylvania Restaurant & Lodging Association.

“The Hoppy Valley Brewers Fest goal was to bring top quality breweries to the center of the state in an iconic venue, Beaver Stadium. To actually bring brewers and owners together to get to know one another and socialize, while giving the public the opportunity to meet them and make it a special event for all.” – John Schaffer, Co-Owner of Antifragile Brewing

Ticket holders will also have a DJ and live entertainment throughout the festival. Times for performances will be announced shortly, but acts include Channing Wilson, Rob Snyder, & Dave Kennedy, The Skoal Brothers, Lowjack, Caledonia, and The Cowpoke and The Poet.

In addition to all the beer tasting available, Beaver Stadium will have its concessions stands open on the concourse. These will offer their typical gameday fare of sodas, soft pretzels, cheesesteaks, and of course their world-famous chicken baskets!
