Welcome to the greatest fest on earth.  Never ever before…not even once in the history of local beer festivals…has there been a circus themed beer festival in the City of Brotherly Love.  With unbridled jollification and uttermost grandeur, The Navy Yard Parade Grounds provide the perfect backdrop for Beer Under the Big Top…Get ready for the largest, most magnificent and utterly stupendous beer event you have ever been to. Tickets are on sale now but certainly won’t last long…

More than 150 brews from local and national craft breweries will be sampled…You'll be given a souvenir tasting cup with the extraordinary capability of holding 2 oz. samples of any of the more than 150 beers at the festival and set your eyes upon the main stage where contortionists, sword swallowers, jugglers and more will turn an ordinary Saturday afternoon into a day that will long be remembered.

Stilt walkers, carnival games, and sideshow faire from local food trucks all add to the best fest on earth experience, while….

…in the center ring will be our charity partner, the local Committee to Benefit the Children (CBC), a great troop providing resources for treatment, care and family support to benefit area children with cancer, leukemia and serious blood disorders.
