Erie Micro Brew Fest


The region’s original craft beer event!

Once again WQLN will present The Erie Micro Brew Fest, the original and longest-running craft brew festival in the region. This year’s brew fest will feature 30 select breweries. Brewers will be able to slow down and take the time to talk to you about their beer, if you want to learn more, and every brewery will also bring a rare beer, something unavailable at a bottle shop or grocery store.

You can expect many returning favorites—but the main attraction remains the same—the chance to taste and appreciate the best that local craft brewing has to offer.

Our two sampling sessions will be from 1pm to 4pm and 5pm to 8pm. And don't forget about our special VIP tickets, good for 45-minute early admission and a souvenir pint glass. VIP ticket quantities are limited, so get yours before they’re gone!
