FAIRLEA, WV (BY: JEFF MORRIS, WCHS/WVAH) — Craft beer from more than a dozen breweries across the state will be served up to quench your thirst this weekend in Greenbrier County while you listen to live music.
The first ever West Virginia Craft Brew Festival is scheduled 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, April 29, at the state fairgrounds in Fairlea, according to the organizers’ website.
Musical performers at the event include Larry Keel, Tyler Childers, The Jon Stickley Trio, The Holy Ghost, Tent Revival and Black King Coal.
Sponsored by the State Fair of West Virginia and the Lewisburg Rotary, the goal of this event is to raise funds for the State Fair of West Virginia and Lewisburg Rotary foundations to support scholarships in the area and across the state. All proceeds, minus expenses, will be split between the foundations.
