BECAUSE BEER is committed to bringing together craft beer brewers to showcase their product and their dedication to quality craft beer. It is aimed at anyone who is interested in enjoying and discovering craft beer – from adventurous craft beer aficionados to the casual beer drinker or beer lover.

Founded in 2014, BECAUSE BEER offers a unique opportunity to sample hundreds of craft beers and ciders from dozens of craft beer and cider makers, interact with brewers, check out the awards ceremony for the Because Beer Homebrew Competition, and take part in exclusive VIP experiences. Festival-goers will also enjoy a great music stage as well as delicious fare served up by specialty food vendors.  And all in a scenic bayfront location that will make you feel like you’ve escaped to the cottage.

BECAUSE BEER — summer doesn't get any better than this!
