BLACKSBURG BREW DO CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL BACK FOR THIRD YEAR
Presented by WSLS 10
Platinum Sponsor Cumulus Broadcasting

SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, September 24, 2011

Blacksburg, Virginia, July 23, 2011 – The Blacksburg Partnership, a non-profit economic development organization,
announces the third annual Blacksburg Brew Do, the area’s biggest and finest craft beer festival. The event will be held
at the First and Main Shopping District on Saturday, September 24, 2011 from noon to 6:00 pm, rain or shine.

Last fall’s Brew Do event drew over 3,500 festival goers, and 20 breweries pouring over 40 different beer varieties. This
year the festival welcomes back the best in craft brewers from the Mid Atlantic region, offering another outstanding
selection of beer, ales, and pilsners. Delicious food and live entertainment will compliment a great day of beer tasting at
a premier Blacksburg shopping destination.

Two exciting new elements to this year’s festival are tailgate games and the introduction of Howls and Meows. The
tailgating area, sponsored by Windsor Hills Apartments, will feature lawn game favorites and a score board showing the
real-time score of the Virginia Tech vs. Marshall University football game. In collaboration with the NRV Homebuilders
Association, Howls and Meows is a fundraiser benefitting the Humane Society of Montgomery County. Through Howls
and Meows, luxury pet houses will be designed, constructed, and publicly displayed in the weeks leading up to and at
Blacksburg Brew Do. Raffle tickets will be sold for each pet house with the raffle winners announced after the festival.

The third annual Blacksburg Brew Do Home Brew Competition sponsored by Bull & Bones Brewhaus & Grill is also now
under way. Home brewers across the region are invited to see how their special recipe stacks up against the
competition. The contest will culminate at the festival with the announcement of “Best in Show” and the winner
receiving the opportunity to brew their recipe as a seasonal beer at Bull & Bones.

“We’re so pleased that the two annual Blacksburg Partnership events have been so embraced by the community,” said
Diane Akers, President of the Partnership. “Blacksburg Fork and Cork and Blacksburg Brew Do have quickly become new
local traditions and we will continue to grow them and add new and exciting elements to match the communities’
interests.”

Popular local bands Laura Beth and the Clover Hollow Boys and The JugBusters will kick off the Brew Do entertainment.
Headlining the festival is Ashleigh Caudill and Narrow Gauge, a nationally-known traditional bluegrass band seen across
the U.S.  at festivals such as Merle Fest.
