100+ Craft & International Beers, Incredible Food Highlighted at King of Prussia Beerfest Royale

August 30, 2017

3,000+ Sell-Out Crowd Every Year, Outdoors at King of Prussia Mall

King of Prussia, PA (Aug. 29, 2017) – A celebration of local craft and international beer, the 6th Annual King of Prussia Beerfest Royale is the suburban Philadelphia region’s must-attend beer festival of the fall. The event features over 100 craft and international beers, inspired dishes from King of Prussia’s finest and newest restaurants, as well as live music on two stages. Produced by the King of Prussia District (KOP-BID), all proceeds from Beerfest Royale are used by the organization for physical improvement projects throughout King of Prussia – like landscaped medians, signage and linear parks.

The two-day, one-of-a-kind festival features an outdoor beer garden, food from King of Prussia’s best restaurants, live music from Philadelphia favorites Swift Technique and Nick Greeley & The Operators and, of course, a wide variety of beer from across the U.S. and around the world! Beerfest Royale is the perfect opportunity to sample hard-to-find and exclusive beers, including the event’s annual specialty beer crafted just for the event. The exclusive beer for 2017, Do You Even Lift Bro?, is a New England IPA with Papaya brewed by Evil Genius Beer Company.

The festival kicks off on Thursday, October 5 with THE best happy hour. This unrivaled tasting night features 20+ of King of Prussia’s finest and newest restaurants paired with a local craft beer partner to create inspired dishes for sampling all night long. In addition, guests can enjoy a cocktail lounge featuring inventive spirits from Manatawny Stillworks and Founding Farmers and local wine from Chaddsford Winery, decadent desserts, a cigar lounge (with a complimentary cigar for each guest), live music and much more—all for one great ticket price: $75 per person, $85 at the door (if available).
