Va. Craft Brewers Fest Ticket Winners Announced!

Thirsty festival goers at last year’s Va. Craft Brewers Fest.

The road back to normalcy probably feels like a long one if you live in Charlottesville right now. And maybe “normal” will never be quite the same after the events of last weekend. But life goes on in C-ville, and so will the Virginia Craft Brewers Festival this Saturday at IX Art Park.

Last week we announced that we’d be giving away four tickets (two each to two different winners) to the festival featuring almost 100 Virginia breweries. And today is the day!

We had a huge response from Richmonders, who had to like the Keep Virginia Cozy Facebook page to be entered. We’ll be contacting the winners after posting this, but we want to urge any Richmonders with some free time this Saturday and a love of Virginia craft beer to make the drive to Charlottesville. It may be one very small step toward normalcy, but if it helps our friends out west even a little, it’ll be worth it.

Without further ado, our ticket winners are:

Wil Loy 


Ray Googe

Thanks for playing, ya’ll!
