King of Prussia District (KOP-BID), in association with Rolling Barrel Events, is excited to announce the return of the largest outdoor beer festival in the Greater Philadelphia suburbs – King of Prussia Beerfest Royale! On tap will be over 100 craft and international beers served alongside some of the best food King of Prussia restaurants have to offer. The festival kicks off Thursday, October 3rd with Donnerstag: Happy Hour and concludes on Saturday, October 5th with Beerfest Royale (two general admission sessions). The event will be held outdoors at The Plaza at the King of Prussia Mall, parking lot adjacent to Mall Boulevard.
This two day, one-of-a-kind festival will feature live music, an outdoor beer garden (sponsored by the Valley Forge Convention & Visitors Bureau), food from the most popular restaurants in town and of course, a wide variety of the best beers in the region and from around the world, including a specialty beer crafted exclusively for Beerfest Royale by Boxcar Brewing Co.
New this year is Donnerstag: Happy Hour. This Thursday night event guarantees to be the best happy hour in the area with specialty food and beer pairings, as well as, live music by The Hoppin’ John Orchestra, a pumpkin beer bar, a lounge featuring beer-infused cocktails, specialty desserts and a cigar lounge (with a complimentary cigar for each guest!) – all enjoyed under the stars in an outdoor beer garden. Tickets for Donnerstag, taking place from 5:30-9pm, are $55 per ticket ($65 at door) or 2 for $100.
The main event is on Saturday with two sessions (12-3:30pm and 6-9:30pm) offering unlimited access to over 50+ brewers featuring over 100 different beers.
