The festival features New Jersey-only craft beer, restaurants, chefs and food trucks with barbecue and bacon creations available for purchase.
Thirty New Jersey breweries will be in attendance, each pouring four styles of beer with one of these styles either a rare beer or a brew specifically created for the festival.
The "Beer BBQ Bacon Showdown" will take place outdoors and under tents. Attendees will also enjoy live music from New Jersey's own Street Hassle and The Brass Balls.
And to add to the all-Jersey element, there will be a competition to showcase culinary skills, with a panel of New Jersey celebrity judges choosing the best of the best, along with People's Choice awards for Best Dish & Best Beer.
The VIP Hour takes place from noon to 1 p.m. and will feature a meet and greet with the brewers, pitmasters and chefs, first access to rare and special beers and a buffet prepared by Chef Chris Masey of Nicole's Ten in Randolph. The buffet is exclusive to VIP ticket holders. Twin Elephant & Conclave Brewing will also be bringing two styles of beer each, exclusively for the VIP hour.
Both VIP and general admission ticket holders will enjoy unlimited samples of beer, a mason jar mug and People's Choice ballot.
