Blair County has it’s very own Brewfest and it has been enjoyed by tens of thousands of people over our 8 year history. This Brewfest has received local, regional and even national recognition. Many of our attendees travel great distances to attend each year. And all ticket proceeds go directly to the Central Pennsylvania Humane Society which helps over 2,000 animals yearly.
Craft beer festivals are very popular around the country with the largest one – The Great American Beer Festival –every October in Denver, CO. Locally, there have been similar festivals, but none on the scale of the Pints for Pets Brewfest.
As craft beer grows in popularity, and is now the fastest growing segment of the American brewing industry, our festival provides craft brewers from around the country with an opportunity to share their products and brewing techniques with a large segment of their consumers in an exciting and fun atmosphere.
We are pleased to present the 2016 Pints for Pets Brewfest to benefit the Central Pennsylvania Humane Society. Now in our 9th year, the festival will be held on Saturday, May 14th, 2016 with Session 1 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm and Session 2 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at the Peoples Natural Gas Field, home to our own Altoona Curve baseball team.
Our unique venue has it all. The brewfest is held on the mezzanine level of the ballpark. Since the mezzanine is covered we can hold this event rain or shine. And it’s open to the field and the Lakemont Amusement Park so the views are great.
Several local bands are on hand to provide music for everyone’s enjoyment. The Ballpark concession stands are open during the entire brewfest. Even non-beer drinkers love the festive atmosphere and come out to socialize with friends and neighbors.
Thanks to the generosity of our many sponsors who underwrite all of the brewfest costs, we can guaranty that 100% of all ticket proceeds go directly to the Central Pennsylvania Humane Society.
It’s a great day, awesome brews, cool folks and a very worthy cause. What could possibly be better than this wonderful day at the ballpark!
