Fifty breweries, 150 beers, one Island. People of the Vineyard, get ready to drink good beer at the first ever Martha’s Vineyard Craft Beer Festival, coming to a field near you on Saturday, Sept. 24, from 1 to 5 p.m.

The location of the festival is Washington Park in Oak Bluffs, across the street from Our Market. Breweries from near and far will be represented, from just down the street to the West Coast. There will also be live entertainment, fresh food and local art. But center stage is the beer.

Tickets are $65, which includes three hours of tasting starting at 2 p.m., a beer glass and a beer guide. For those who desire to drink for an extra hour, there are VIP tickets for $85, which means you get to start at 1 p.m. and gain access to an exclusive VIP tasting area featuring super special releases from participating breweries.

This is a 21+ event. For more information, visit
