Cabin Fever Beer Fest highlights local breweries

The Cabin Fever craft beer Festival was held at Mylan park where over twenty one local West Virginian breweries showcased their home-brewed beers, ciders, and meads.

The fest gave drink enthusiast a chance to talk with local breweries about the art behind creating craft beer.

Organizers say the fest has been a great chance to highlight a growing industry in our state.

"In the past couple years with the law changes we have a ton of new breweries," "We have new breweries come in every year and it's just been a huge growth area for the state," said Richard Dalton, a crew leader for the fest and the director for the beer judging competition
