If you’ve never enjoyed a beer in the buff, the time has come to drop your duds and have some suds — courtesy of the Bare Beach Beer Bash.
The annual festival will make its return to the Poconos’ Sunny Rest “clothes-free” resort Saturday, June 27 for an afternoon of very good beer paired with other stark-naked people who enjoy it. Tickets are $20 at the door, and you must be nude for the duration of the event.
Live entertainment will be provided by — who else? — acoustic duo A Pair of Nuts. To augment that punny element, ticket holders will receive unlimited beer samples from breweries both national and local.
Sunny Rest also encourages attendees to stick around for that Saturday’s late-night pool party from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., which also will feature live music and equally naked people. If you don’t get enough by the time the pool party ends, you can also book a campsite or room at the resort to really absorb the experience.
This coming Bare Beach Beer Bash will be the event’s fourth year running, which largely can be attributed to its strict adherence to Pennsylvania’s nudity laws. Those laws state that indecent exposure occurs when “a person exposes his or her genitals in a public place … where other people are present and the person knows that the exposure will offend others.”
But being as Sunny Rest advertises itself as a "clothes-free resort," attendees are able to avoid the penalty of “$100 or up to 20 days in jail.” It is, after all, privates private property.
Which means, of course, don’t worry. You are free to rock out with your bock out, so to speak.
