(where Les the Mentalist will entertain and amaze alongside a new surprise beer from Evil Genius), the Winter Wunderbar Alpine Firepit and Marshmallow Roast (which includes a giant Jenga and one of the only pieces of the Berlin Wall in the United States), and the usual panels with beer experts like Lew Bryson.

Participating breweries include 2nd Story Brewing Co., Brewery Techne / Bar Hygge, Free Will Brewing Co., Gunpowder Falls Brewing Co., Penn Brewery, Philadelphia Brewing Co., Round Guys Brewing Co., Roy-Pitz Brewing Co., Samuel Adams, St. Benjamin Brewing Co., Sly Fox Brewing Co., Stoudts Brewing Co., Susquehanna Brewing Co., Tröegs Brewing Co., Victory Brewing Co., Weyerbacher Brewing Co., Yards Brewing Co., ZeroDay Brewing Co., and Yuengling & Sons Brewery, alongside a number of local Pennsylvania cideries like Kurant Cider and Commonwealth Cider.
