I’ve been a big fan of craft beer ever since I was old enough to legally drink. It shouldn’t be surprising then that the Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival has been an annual staple for my wife and I. While we had to take 2020 off for obvious reasons (Pandemics are the worst), we were back in 2021 and returned in 2022 to once again see what the state of New Jersey had to offer beer fans. We also stayed at the Borgata, our favorite casino in the city. Here’s how it went!
Atlantic City Beer Festival Review
I look forward to this beer festival every year, and for good reason! Not only is it a fair excuse to spend the weekend in Atlantic City, it also brings together over 100 breweries from the region and puts them into one convenient place. Since the pandemic, the beer festival now takes place outside at Bader field, just a short (10 minute) Uber Ride from the Borgata.
The weather was perfect for the beer festival this year (2022). Nice and windy, just below 80 degrees, I couldn’t have asked for a better time. Seriously, go check it out if you have the chance.
Borgata Table Minimums
As always, the Borgata did not disappoint, which is probably why it’s our favorite casino in Atlantic City. Table minimums were definitely on the high side, however. Blackjack and Craps both came in at $15 per throw/hand. We came out ahead, though, which is more than anyone can hope for! Stadium Gaming is also an option for you frugal gamblers out there (hi).
