Going: 3 | Watching: 0 | Invited: 0
The 2nd Annual Thirsty Orange Brew Extravaganza will be held on April 13th in Johnson City, TN. The Thirsty Orange Brew Extravaganza was the first beer festival as a partner for the ‘Support your Local Brewery’ campaign. The festival will have over 100 different and unique beers to sample throughout the day. Included will be two roaming beer infuser lines ranging from beer infused with Jalapeno to toasted Coconut, and many other tasty infusions. The Beer Booth (photobooth) will be at the festival to provide attendees free pictures of this incredible day.

The Thirsty Orange commissions special cask brews for the festival including Apple Pie, PB&J Ale Brew and the Mammy is Burning Jalepeno Cask. In addition, the Thirsty Orange Brew Extravaganza will have many brews that can’t be found anywhere else.

The featured brewer for the Thirsty Orange is Wicked Weed Brewery in Asheville NC, making their first beer festival in Tennessee. In addition, the Thirsty Orange will have a Thirsty Orange Brew Off and an Iron Brewer Challenge where brewers add their secret ingredient. The festival kicks off with a Beer Glass Swap, where beer lovers can swap their beer glass with other beer lovers at the festival. Live Music will be performed throughout the day with Wise Old River, Damon Waffle and Last in Line. In addition, a Hooper’s Ball will occur during the festival, with the talents of Asheville’s Hula Hoop artists.

General Admission tickets include 4 hours of tasting, a commemorative tasting glass. Early Bird Tickets receive an official Thirsty Orange Pint Glass for a limited time. A limited number of VIP tickets will be available and include appetizers throughout the day provided by Mellow Mushroom, an additional 1.5 hours of advance sampling and special brews only for the VIPs.

Sponsors for the Thirsty Orange Brew Extravaganza include Mellow Mushroom, Smith Brothers Harley, WQUT, ABC-News, VIP Seen Magazine, Beer City Bus Tours, Action Rentals and Kingsport Oktoberfest.
