About Barrel & Flow Fest:

Barrel & Flow is one of America’s favorite festivals, as voted by the readers of USA Today, and we strive to be the most welcoming festival as well. We are more than just beer and want to continue to utilize the brewing industry to connect opportunity, accessibility, and artistry in ways that empower the Black community.

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.
We invite you to join us as part of this story of celebration, collaboration, and community.

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 August 13, 2022  in Pittsburgh, PA for what we hope will be the best and most welcoming festival across the nation!
