The over-the-top outdoor food and beer festival is even bigger this year with cooking from The Roosevelt, Metzger Bar & Butchery, ZZQ, Saison, Sabai and Amuse. Chefs from each eatery will be smoking and grilling a killer line-up of pork dishes and their own homemade sides. Plus, Rappahannock Oyster Co. will join the festivities with steamed and roasted oysters, as well as fresh crab cakes.

And, of course, there's beer – 14 special Ardent beers, to be exact:

  • Saison 
  • Virginia Common 
  • IPA Batch #9 
  • IPA Batch #18 
  • IPA Batch #19 
  • IPA Batch #20 
  • IPL 
  • Robust Porter 
  • Batch 100  
  • Golden Ale 
  • Earl Grey Brown Ale 
  • Altbier 
  • Szechuan Peppercorn Saison 
  • Oyster Porter Cask 

Cost is only $20 per person, which includes three tickets redeemable for food or beer, as well as a limited edition Ardent Craft Ales bandanna. Additional tickets will be available for purchase at the event for $5 each. Must be 21 or older to attend and ID is required upon entry. All food items are 1 ticket (with the exception of a few larger portion items).

Come on! Make a pig of yourself!
