Barrel & Flow Fest 

New year, new perspective, new normal. And a refresh for what has become one of America’s favorite festivals as voted by the readers of USA Today.  In order to keep things truly fresh, we at Fresh Fest are enthusiastically rebranding as Barrel & Flow to fully embrace and uplift artists, musicians, chefs, and brewers.

Stay Tuned

Barrel & Flow Fest 2021

Why Barrel & Flow?

To honor what we see as interconnected and important sectors of Black arts. To celebrate Black arts and artists. And to express and share how collective art is greater together than the sum of their individual parts. Through the barrel flows this collective creativity of music, visual art, and culinary art. Our collaborations and aims of economic empowerment for the Black community continue, just as significant and necessary as ever, with global aspirations and national amplifications. 

Media coverage of Fresh Fest has included Forbes, Thrillist, Imbibe, NPR, Atlanta Black Journal, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, The New York Times, Wine Enthusiast,Vice, The Atlantic, and October. In addition to national and international media coverage Fresh Fest, has been twice voted the second best beer festival in the United States by USA Today and is featured in the Smithsonian Institution.

Join us in 2022  in Pittsburgh, PA for what we hope will be the best and most welcoming festival across the nation!
