Craft Brewed and Nude: No Clothes Allowed at This Beer Fest

Craft Brewed and Nude: No Clothes Allowed at This Beer Fest

Sure, there are countless beer festivals happening everywhere, all of the time. And while most present the same sort of scene — tables, taps, brewery reps and crowds of enthusiastic and thirsty beer nerds lining up to grab a glass-full of the latest and greatest suds — here’s one that’s so out of the ordinary that it’s in a class all its own.

And that’s because it requires its guests to doff their duds before entering.

Yeah, you read that right. Nudity is a requirement for Sunny Rest Resort’s annual beer festival, which this year takes place on Saturday, June 28, 1 — 5 PM.

You’re free to wear a robe, towel or even pants and a shirt elsewhere at this clothing-optional vacation getaway in Pennsylvania’s Poconos, but on site of the annual brew fest, only birthday suits will be tolerated.

Here's the flyer for the event. We have a feeling the clientele will look slightly different than what they're depicting.

Tickets are $16 in advance, and $18 the day of the festival. Along with entry to the beer fest and unlimited samples from breweries near and far, the ticket includes a free day’s admission to Sunny Rest Resort. Fest goers can also take advantage of discounts on rooms and campsites. The after-party festivities, which also require nudity, take place at the resort’s Streakers Bar and Flashers Nightclub.

If you go, pack light and don’t forget the high SPF sunscreen.
