The Beer Festival music line-up will feature an array of sound from some of the most popular local bands in the area. Kicking off the event for the VIP hour will be Anton Flint & Friends.

Self proclaimed, “Your favorite 90’s cover band, give or take a decade, or two,” UG is a fun loving group of friends that are a true pleasure to watch.

Well known for their unique sound, great vibes and live shows, Evan Dillon Band promises to be a great addition to this year’s line up. Finally, rounding out the night, is the LeRoy Townes Band.
