Autos and Ales Craft Beer Festival

Autos and Ales Craft Beer Festival

This Friday – November 5th, is the annual AACA Museum hosted ‘Autos and Ales’ Craft Beer festival.

Autos and Ales

Coming up this Friday – November 5th (2021) is the annual Autos and Ales Craft Beer Festival; held yearly at the AACA Museum in Hershey Pennsylvania. Its one of the more fun craft beer festivals of the year (in a studded area for beer festivals; like the Mount Hope Renaissance Faire, the Lititz Craft Beer Fest, the Lancaster Brewfest, and the Atlantic City Brewfest). This one is unique and fun, because as you sip and drink, you can mill around looking at all the various cars on display in the museum.

The event page on Facebook describes it:

Autos & Ales, an annual event held at the AACA Museum, Inc. located in Hershey, PA. Join us for a fun night of sampling craft brew beers from dozens of different brewers while your eyes savor the magnificent automobiles on display inside the Museum.
