Raising The Roof at Christ Church

They’re calling it “Raise the Roof” , and the festival at Christ Church is set to kick off at 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 19.

The event, sponsored by the Foundation for Historic Christ Church, will help raise funds for the preservation and repair of the 1897 slate roof of the 1735 church. Festivities will include barbecue, music, and 12 craft beers, served in a souvenir glass.

The beer fest will be held, rain or shine. Two tents, including one 100 x 40 feet, will ensure that folks stay dry and shaded, no matter the weather.
A $30 ticket will get you four 6-ounce tastings of beer that range from pale ales to porter and lager, wine for those who prefer, soft drinks and water, barbecue, and music. Additional beer will be available for purchase.

A complete beer list appears at christchurch1735.com.

Tickets may be purchased through the website; at Christ Church, 420 Christ Church Road, Weems; by mail, P.O. Box 24, Irvington, VA 22480; or [email protected].
