A BeerFest will be held at Liberty Village on Oct. 14 and a limited number of tickets will be sold. Proceeds will benefit the Flemington Rotary Foundation and the charities it supports.
The festival will be held outdoors from noon to 4:30 p.m. rain or shine, in the parking lot off of Route 12. It will include live music from the Laurie Vosburg Band and food from local establishments will be available for purchase.
Participants will be able to sample more than 60 specialty craft beers from more than 30 breweries. Those attending the VIP early entry session will be able to taste special beers from Lone Eagle and Conclave Brewing.
Brewers themselves will pour some of the beer and Flemington Rotarians and Rotaract students from Raritan Valley Community College will pour others.
"It will be a great event that will not only provide an opportunity to taste a variety of craft beers, but also bring together volunteers that haven't worked together before - all while raising funds for charity including scholarships for Hunterdon Central High School and Hunterdon County Polytech graduates," said Flemington Rotary President Kim Metz.
Allyson Stillwell, who is Vice President of the Rotaract Club and a scholarship recipient several years ago, is in charge of the more than 30 Rotaract student volunteers who will help with the festival.
The event is only for those 21 years of age and older. For online ticket sales and more information, visit the Rotary's website.
