Default Virginia: Rocktown Beer & Music Festival

Hey guys,

I'm coordinating the first annual Rocktown Beer & Music Festival in Harrisonburg, Virginia. It will take place on April 23, 2011. We're going to host four amazing regional acts, and feature 30-35 of the best craft breweries from Virginia and all over the States. More details will follow, but just wanted to post a list of who will be there. It would be awesome to have some HBT'ers who are in the area stop by to check it out:

Sierra Nevada
Foothills
Sam Adams
Heavy Seas
Devil's Backbone
Cally's
Brooklyn
Terrapin
North Coast
Great Divide
Stoudt's
Uinta
21st Amendment
Starr Hill
St. George
New Holland
Lagunitas
Harpoon
Blue Mountain
Ommegang
Left Hand
Dogfish Head
Crispin
Troegs
Bell's
Flying Dog
Stone
Abita
Avery
Allagash

I'm from Roanoke but moved to Miami last year. I probably won't be there, but I have a lot of friends in the area. I'll spread the word.

That's awesome. I'm a new brewer down in Stuarts Draft (the irony isn't lost).
Went to JMU. Get back to H'burg all the time.
Can't wait. This is awesome!
Do you need any help?

I'm in Harrisonburg too. That's a great line up of breweries. From what I've heard there will be good music too. Hope to meet some more of the home brewers in the area. I know a few other brewers in the area frequent other forums, I might post it there too. Looking forward to it.

Sounds interesting, put me and my son Josh (JMU grad) as volunteers. I mite be tempted to come down and do some set up work too if the offer was tempting.

Jamie, I'll stop in some time and I'd probably be able to help with the event too.
