For those of you who like outdoor adventures and open-air music, a weekend has been created just for you! Slated for June 1, 2, and 3, the Mountain Music Festival is one of the most anticipated weekends of the summer in West Virginia. A music stage sits right in the middle of ACE Adventure Resort, which is a 1,500-acre outdoor adventure property in the heart of the New River Gorge. When not enjoying the music, festival attendees are staying active with the best white water rafting, rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking, or getting wet and wild at the waterpark. Guests are well fed at a choice of dining venues on the resort or in downtown Faytetteville, and enjoying nights spent in tents or comfortable cabins at ACE. Because of the simple ethos behind the festival, participants are surrounded by a community of like-minded outdoor adventures who appreciate WV craft brews with their music, or the other way around.
In regard to craft brews, event organizers tell us Greenbrier Valley Brewing Company (GVBC) has been a fantastic partner over the last two years. In the months leading up the Mountain Music Festival, GVBC does numerous promotions and ticket giveaways across the region as they participate in various events. They also partner with the festival to produce a pre-party series in Morgantown, Huntington and Roanoke, VA. You too can hang out with the folks from GVBC at the festival on Saturday afternoon as they present the Greenbrier Valley Brewing Company Lake Stage with a variety of bands. GVBC will also be available at the festival grounds/main stage area under the beer tent. Enjoy their flagships: Devil Anse IPA, Mothman Black IPA and Wild Trail Pale Ale, our Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout and the new Witbier will be available at the festival.
“We’re incredibly excited to be partnering with the Mountain Music Festival again this year and adding to the fun and excitement. We’re in the process of getting our merch chests’ loaded and ready to go with some pretty cool new hiking/biking gear available. Find our booth by the Main Stage! GVBC reps will also be present at all Lake Stage concerts.” – Lisa Stansell, Marketing Director at Greenbrier Valley Brewing Co. Learn more about GVBC at GVBeer.com.
