Happy Anniversary Amber Ox!
Hard to believe its been a year since Andrew Voss and Chris Cook opened the amazingly popular Amber Ox Public House & Precarious Beer Project. In celebration of their first anniversary, Precarious Beer Project the sister brewery to the Amber Ox Public House restaurant is hosting “Field Dayz Fest”, a craft beer, food and music festival unlike any other! “Field Dayz Fest” is a precarious throwback to the best day in middle school, Field Day! Located on the Lawns of the Colonial Williamsburg Art Museum, enjoy some amazing craft beer, bites, music and jovial antics, all to benefit the kids at CHKD!
Field Dayz Fest will combine over 35 of our region’s best craft breweries and restaurants, in addition to amazing live entertainment headlined by the ultimate 80’s cover band, The Deloreans! No field day is complete without games like Tetherball, Cornhole and a few other’s we will keep secret to add a little fun and competition throughout the day!
The gates open at 1:45pm and music kicks off at 2:00pm by local favorites “The Six”. Then the guys from “Skinner Box” hits the stage at 3:30pm, followed by DJ Jimmy Coe. The masters of 80’s Pop/Rock, The Deloreans will jam out on the main stage from 5:00pm – 8:00pm!
Over 35 of our region’s best craft breweries will be pouring one-off, tasting room exclusive offerings for the day’s festivities, hosted by Precarious Beer Project. Final list of participating breweries is as follows:

Field Dayz Fest wouldn’t be complete without a selection of incredible food! Street style inspired bites will be offered by the Chefs from the Amber Ox Public House, 1608 Crafthouse, Redwood Smoke Shack, La Tienda and Kudzu RVA! The food will be cheap, delicious and highly inspired! Come hungry as this isn’t your typical “Craft Beer Festival Grub”!
A portion of the event proceeds will benefit the amazing people at the Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters (CHKD). In addition to taking donations, we are asking that all festival goers to bring a toy to donate for infants (0-12 months) as every other holiday toy drive collects toys for older children and leaves the little ones high and dry! Donations will be accepted by our friends from the 149th Fight Squadron, from the United States Air Force! Meet some American Hero’s, help the babies by bringing a toy (and you just might get something in return). Donations must be new and in their original packaging please! Donations are not required to enjoy the day’s festivities, only requested.
