The Amesbury Sports Park will be hosting the 5th Annual Brew Fest on Saturday, September 24, from 12:00 to 8:30 p.m. at its facility at 12 South Hunt Road in Amesbury MA. The Brew Fest, sponsored by Dos Equis, will feature a plethora of microbrews, barbecue, OGO (Outdoor Gravity Orb) and summer tubing rides and music by 6 live bands on an outdoor stage.

The Parkís Brew Fest attracted nearly 2,200 people last year, and they are expecting north of 4,500 people to attend the all day event this year. The Amesbury Sports Park has partnered with Merrimack Valley Distributors who will be showcasing their entire portfolio of microbrews including Ithaca Cascazilla, New Castle Werewolf, and Wolavers Pumpkin.

Many of the distributorís brewers are attending the event and will be available to discuss the history, brewing processes, and subtle nuances of their favorite brews. While the focus of the Brew Fest is on craft brews, there will be a handful of more mainstream beers like Coors Light for the slightly less adventurous.

Local favorites and headlining band, The Brew, will be celebrating the release of their latest CD at the Brew Fest. Other bands performing include Michael Bernier & The Uprising, Nerve 8, The Romano Project, Sunchunck and more.

Aside from beer, BBQ and bands, the Brew Fest will feature OGO rides and summer tubing. The OGO (Outdoor Gravity Orb) is an 11 foot inflatable transparent sphere with another inflated sphere suspended inside it. Riders enter the orb and strap themselves into a harness, or enter the H2OGO with up to 3 people and 5 gallons of water and are pushed over the edge of an 800 foot grassy slope.

Tickets for admission are just $11 and are available in advance online at www.amesburysportspark.net or at the door on the day of the event. Once inside the gate, guests may purchase ten 3 oz. samples for $10 and full pints will be available at the draft truck.
