The Coziest Winter Beer Invitational EVER…


The Coziest Winter Beer Invitational EVER…

Featuring the juiciest, most pillowy beers from 20+ East Coast Breweries


Norfolk, VA - February 11, 2019  — Last summer, O’Connor Brewing Company introduced its first ever beer invitational, Dazed and Consumed, a state-wide event with more than a dozen breweries on-site pouring their freshest, most unique hazy IPAs.  Due to the success of Dazed and Consumed, O’Connor Brewing Co. recently launched Pillow Fight, its second invitational event, featuring unlimited tastings of some of the juiciest, most pillowy IPAs from 20+ of the best breweries on the East Coast - expanding from solely Virginia breweries.

On Saturday, March 2nd, 2019 from noon to 6:00 pm, at O’Connor Brewing Co in Norfolk, Virginia, Pillow Fight will take over the brewery for two tasting sessions of rare releases of a limited variety of juicy IPAs - typically not available outside of brewery tasting rooms or in the Hampton Roads market. Several breweries will be brewing special releases just for this event.

With a theme and title of “Pillow Fight!” this is a beer festival so chill you can literally show up in your jammies - in fact that’s encouraged! The event includes PJs, DJs, all the hazy beers you could possibly dream of, and the nostalgic excitement we all once felt going to childhood sleepovers.

General Admission tickets are $35 per person and include entry to the festival, as well as a limited edition festival taster.
