A Sneak Peek at The Brewer's Plate 2017 VIP+ Hour

Still haven't bought your tickets to The Brewer's Plate next weekend? Well, lucky for you, there are still a few spots remaining at the exclusive VIP+ preview hour, headlined by Victory Brewing Company and Southern Tier and featuring Garces Events and Buena Onda! Only 150 attendees will have access to this full hour of pre-event sampling, which will take place in the rooftop garden at the Kimmel Center.

VIP+ guests will enjoy live oyster shucking demonstrations from NJ growers, Sweet Amalia Oyster Farm & Betsy's Cape Shore Salts, as well as freshly carved Jamon con Tomate and a selection of small plates to be paired with sought-after drafts and exclusive bottle pours from Victory and Southern Tier. During this preview hour, Victory is set to feature Java Cask, their bourbon barrel–aged release of 2015 and 2016, and Red, their brewpub-exclusive, Flemmish-style sour red ale. Southern Tier will round out your palate with their picks, such as Nu Skool IPA and Manhattan.

Following the VIP+ and VIP hours, the main event is poised to be our best one yet, with new faces like Erdenhiem Farms, Bar Hygge, Heritage, Broken Goblet Brewing, and Captain Lawrence Brewing, and returning friends of Fair Food like Cedar Point Bar & Kitchen, High Street on Market, Neshaminy Creek Brewing, and many more.

Look out for these trifecta pairings:

  • Scott Schroeder’s newest venture, Hungry Pigeon, with Birchrun Hills Farm and Ploughman Ciders
  • New-on-the-scene Cinder with Frecon’s Cidery and Stone & Key
  • Longtime Brewer’s Plate participant: Devil’s Den, with Free Will and Bluebird Distilling
