Brian Yaeger, author of the book Red, White and Brew, has written an article for the Craft Brewers Association about how to approach beer festivals. Some of his tips?

He also recommends some festivals to hit and cites the 46th annual German-American Festival from Aug. 26-28 in Oregon, Ohio, and 35th annual Oktoberfest Zinzinati from Sept. 16-18 in Cincinnati.
