Virginia is for Lovers

Virginia's Craft Beer Events

August is Virginia Craft Beer Month and we want to toast to all the amazing breweries in Virginia!

Post a video or picture on Instagram of a “toast” to your favorite Virginia beer or brewery using #ToastVA and #VACraftbeer, then pass the [virtual] mic by tagging a friend and inviting them to do the same! Weekly winners with the best ‘Toast to Virginia’ will be chosen throughout August to win some sweet Virginia is for Craft Beer Lovers swag.

What’s A Toast? It’s an open interpretation, but stirring salutes, songs, tributes and pint pics are all options. Photos, gifs, videos and Boomerangs are welcome. Follow #ToastVA and #VACraftBeer on Instagram for a few ideas.
