In the two years since Bhavana first opened, our team has had the privilege of attending a vast range of beer experiences, from thoughtful, educational discussions to rowdy and expansive, full-on parties. Each time, we have marveled and dreamt of hosting our own: a small and thoughtful festival centered on soft and delicate beers, full of flowers, soft music, and friendly faces. And here it is, our first annual Soft Beer Fest: Sunday, March 31st from 2-6 pm.

We’ll be pouring beers and ciders from some of our very favorite people: Brewery Vivant, Civil Society, Fonta Flora, New Belgium, Oxbow, Shacksbury, TRVE, and Zillicoah Beer Co. Expect subtle and nuanced fermentation flavors, complex aromatics, silky carbonation, and pillowy textures.

Dim sum will be available throughout the afternoon, with music from the Durham-based, funk-driven Supatight and a closing set from our friends Kate Rhudy and Libby Rodenbough.

Ticket sales have ended.
