The 2014 Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival

The Celebration of the Suds, better known as “The Atlantic City Beer Fest” presented by 100.7 WZXL, returns to The Atlantic City Convention Center for the 9th straight year on April 4th & 5th. The 2014 event will be an amazing experience in taste as electrifying musical guests set the sound track to savor brews from all over the planet. In 2014, Atlantic City, New Jersey is the destination to discover beer, music and much more!

Over 150 different breweries from across the country will showcase their unique libations. The focus of The Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival is the promotion and education of craft beers and a celebration of the brewers that create them. This event is the perfect opportunity for beer aficionados, beer lovers and the casual beer drinker to speak to company representatives and the brewers responsible for some of their favorite brews. This is the one true opportunity to discover and taste new brews and special “limited release” beers and ales.

Every year festival organizers review the event and look to further enhance the beer lover’s experience to make each year better than the last. Now in its 9th year, the festival has easily become one of the country’s largest gatherings of all things beer. For 2014 festival producers will bring in musical headliners, Saves the Day, Dirty Heads and and Less than Jake to anchor the weekend’s line up, and further highlight each session. Already one of Atlantic City’s most anticipated events of the year, the 2014 festival will play the perfect soundtrack to enjoy great brews, great tunes and thousands of great people! All bands and performers will be featured on the event web site under the heading sounds.

The 2014 Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival will also feature culinary demonstrations from prominent area chefs; beer seminars hosted by well-known personalities/brewers and some “off the wall” activities. Additionally, festival exhibitors will offer great food and some unique beer-related apparel and goods. This year’s festival will appeal to absolutely everyone!

The festival offers a “Designated Driver” ticket for the price of $15, available at the door only, to encourage attendee responsibility and usage of Atlantic City’s many transportation options, including jitneys and cabs. New Jersey Transit’s Atlantic City Line train arrives right inside the Atlantic City Convention Center and NJ Transit officials report that Beer Fest weekend marks the highest single day ridership numbers all year long. (See www.njtransit.com for a train schedule) This is one of the reasons why the Atlantic City Convention Center makes for the perfect home of “The Celebration of The Suds.”
