Food and Brew Festival
FoodBrew_Logo.pngAbout the Event
  • July 23

Food and Brew Fest is all about celebrating the unique relationship between the culinary arts and the brewing sciences! Out and About Magazine and Downtown Newark Partnership are proud to host what has become a summer tradition. On a Saturday in July, more than 40 craft and imported beers paired with creative food offerings will be showcased at participating Newark restaurants.

Unlike most beer festivals, this event takes place in the restaurants. Guests travel from restaurant to restaurant to sample the featured brews and tasty dishes designed to spotlight the brews at that particular establishment. Tickets are not required. This is a pay as you go event. All guests need is their wallet and state-issued photo ID, because beer samples are only available to those who are at least 21 years of age.

Beer tastings and food specials begin at 2 p.m. and run until 8 p.m. The first 2,500 guests will receive a Food and Brew Fest commemorative five ounce tasting mug. These are available at all participating restaurants and at the information booth. Guests may sample one of the restaurant's featured brews for $1.

Entertainment & Parking
Musicians and balloon decorations line the street keeping guests in the festive spirit while shopping and strolling downtown. Out and About Magazine hosts specialty soda tasting for kids on the academy lawn until 6 p.m. or until supplies run out, whichever comes first. There is plenty of parking for this event. Municipal parking lots are conveniently located throughout downtown. A complimentary, air conditioned shuttle will take you to convenient stops located near all of the participating restaurants!
