Samples of over 100 different craft and import beers, including many of West Virginia’s breweries.
The opportunity to sample several craft beers brewed exclusively for the festival by West Virginia’s microbreweries, and available only at the Rails & Ales Festival.
The works of up to 15 local artisans.
Food from area restaurants.
Live acoustic music all day.
