Five beer vendors have signed up for the 2nd Annual Marianas Beer & BBQ Festival on Oct. 6, 2018, at Garapan Fishing Base.
Saipan Brewing Company, Marpac, I Love Saipan, Westco, and Franken Brau have all confirmed to participate in the event, which pairs Marianas brews with island-style barbecue and other appetizers and is an annual signature event of the Marianas Visitors Authority.
Slated to provide a variety of chasers for the events are Mystique Snack Bar, Ina’s Kitchen, The Hut, and Salty’s.
This year’s festival will again include Taiwan’s Fourplay Cuisine & Bar, which last year debuted exclusive themed beer cocktails: Saipan Blue, Tinian Red, and Rota Green. Fourplay bar leader Moriz Wu and attendant Sion Wu will be on hand to debut new signature beer cocktails.
The festival is scheduled from 5pm to 11pm and will feature a new 2018 signature beer glass that patrons can use throughout the event and keep as a souvenir. The event will be open to the public but only adults age 21 and older will be allowed to consume alcohol (21 is the legal drinking age in the Marianas). Live music and non-alcoholic drinks will also be a part of the evening. (MVA)
