Seven Springs Mountain Resort will present the inaugural Pennsylvania Beer Festival, featuring more than 50 breweries offering complimentary samples of more than 100 beers.

The June 22-23 festival gives patrons the chance to sample craft beers from across the Keystone state, including, according to the resort, “elusive brews” one won’t find at the distributor.

Festival hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m. each day.

“Our events team has worked very hard to create an event celebrating the state’s diverse beers, an event that goes far beyond your typical beer fest,” says marketing director Alex Moser.

Throughout the weekend, festival guests can attend “Beerducation” seminars covering topics including “How to Make Beer 101,” “Brewery Stories,” “Sustainability & Brewing” and “Women In Beer.”

Tickets include a souvenir festival tasting glass, seminar admission, craft vendors and three stages of live musical entertainment.

From noon-1 p.m., 2-3 p.m. and 4-5 p.m. on June 22, Buckwild will play country-rock on the main stage.

Hell’s Bells, AC/DC tribute band, will perform on the east stage, and Mark Ferrari, acoustic music, will play on the paver stage, both from 11 a.m.-noon, 1-2 p.m. and 3-4 p.m.

From noon- 1 p.m., 2-3 p.m. and 4-5 p.m. on June 23, Ross native and “The Voice” finalist Chris Jamison will perform on the main stage.

Light Up the Moon will play pop rock and dance music on the east stage, and Meredith Holliday will play acoustic music on the paver stage, both from 11 a.m.-noon, 1-2 p.m. and 3-4 p.m.

This event is for those age 21 and up, the resort states. Designated drivers who are over 21 can purchase tickets for $10 either day.

Tickets are $45 in advance, $55 at the gate.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
