The Fourth Annual Wonder City Craft Beer Festival on Saturday, April 20, will kick off “50 Days of Love” in Hopewell, Virginia. The “50 Days of Love” campaign is part of Virginia’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of the “Virginia is for Lovers” brand, which was launched in 1969.

The craft beer festival will take place from noon to 6 p.m. in downtown, 403 Appomattox Street, overlooking the scenic Appomattox River.

“The Wonder City Craft Beer Festival attracts thousands of visitors to Hopewell each spring to sample some of the region’s most notable craft beers,” says Aaron Reidmiller, Hopewell’s director of recreation and parks. “The event is one of the City’s signature events held in historic downtown Hopewell.”

Twenty-seven local partners, including the Hopewell/Prince George Chamber of Commerce, will participate in the “50 Days of Love” campaign. The Boathouse restaurant is offering a new hors d’oeuvre featuring Boathouse oysters roasted with Edwards Smoked Surry Sausage and Patrick Henry Cornbread available at all meals for $19.69. On Mondays from 1-2 pm the Quick Lunch will offer a 50 cent “all the way” hot dog. Luca Restaurant in nearby Prince George is offering an appetizer, small heart shaped pizza, and any dessert for $19.69.

The festival is free and open to all ages. Food trucks, live music, and children’s activities will be available throughout the day. More than 30 craft beer makers will participate in the event. Popular breweries featured will include Bold Rock, Center of the Universe, Legend, Midnight, Steam Bell, Starr Hill, Hardywood, Devils Backbone, Trapezium, and Stone. Music will be provided by Magnolia and RVA Growlers.

To sample craft beers, taster tickets will be available for sale the day of the event. Each ticket will be $2 for a 5 oz. beer sample. Some specialty beers may require two tickets for a 5 oz. sample.

Outside food and drink are prohibited. Visitors may bring a chair but you must leave the umbrellas at home. The event is open to persons of all ages but only individuals ages 21 and above will be permitted to purchase sample tickets.

Free parking is available surrounding the event area. A combination of public parking lots and street parking offer ample opportunities to get close to the event entrance.
