For nearly a decade, the Mountaineer Brewfest in Wheeling, West Virginia, has been a highlight for beer lovers and community supporters. As we approach the 10th anniversary of this festive event, it’s time to celebrate the best of West Virginia’s craft and microbreweries while continuing the tradition of supporting local charities.

A Commitment to Community and Charity

Since its inception, the Mountaineer Brewfest has proudly showcased the unique flavors of the region’s brewing talent, allowing attendees to explore a range of craft beers.

This wouldn’t have been possible without the collective effort of sponsors, volunteers, patrons, and organizations.
