Atlantic City: The biggest beer festival in NJ is back and better than before. Here’s what you need to know!
Starting in 2006 with 3,000 people and less than 30 breweries, the original Atlantic City Beer Festival or “Celebration of The Suds” was born. Over the past 16 years, our event has undergone countless changes, added innumerable breweries to the roster, and to date has seen nearly half a million people! We’re proud of our history, and we know first-hand that evolution has played a factor in our success. From our first year seeing 3,000 people, now we annually see over 27,000 throughout the festival weekend. This year (2022) we switched it up and are taking the festival to its new outdoor location on Bader Field, covering well over 1.4 million square feet.
On Saturday, June 4 and Sunday June 5, The ACBF is back and with 2 sessions and plenty of beer and music and MORE this year!
Here are a few things you need to know (or answers to questions you may have)
• Tickets are on sale as of November 24. Tickets are $65 (plus fees and tax) no longer through Ticketmaster. Ticket prices will increase to $70 plus fees on February 2.
With over 150 brewers and vendors and killer bands, now’s the time to get your tickets from acbeerfest.com or at JOE CANAL’S DISCOUNT LIQUOR – EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP locations on Fire Rd or Black Horse Pike.
