Celebrate Virginia Craft Beer Month – And you can help our local breweries win a prize!

August 08, 2017

August is Virginia Craft Beer Month! During the month of August, Virginia's tourism bureau encourages consumers to post a photo or video to Instagram in a “toast” style about their favorite Virginia beer, brewery or craft beer experience using the hashtags #ToastVA and #VAcraftbeer, then “pass the mic” by tagging a friend to do the same.

All participants will be entered to win weekly drawings for Virginia is for Craft Beer Lovers swag, and the two breweries with the most engagement will win giant Virginia is for Craft Beer Lovers neon signs.

Let's help our beloved downtown breweries, Bristol Station Brews & Taproom and Studio Brew win those signs! Each time you visit a brewery, be sure to post your toast!

What's A Toast?It's an open interpretation, but stirring salutes, songs, tributes and pint pics are all options. Photos, gifs, videos and Boomerangs are welcome. Follow #ToastVA and #VACraftBeer on Instagram for a few ideas, and visit virginia.org/craftbeer for more information.
