Welcome to Stews & Brews by Easton Beer Fest in conjunction with the Chesapeake Fire & Ice Festival, presented by Preston Automotive Group.

Entering the 5th year, Easton Beer Fest has become your destination for great beer and a great time. Locals say those firefighters know how to party, so lets heat up the winter. We know you will be looking for something to break the cabin fever blues, and Stews & Brews is just what you’ll need!

Stews & Brews will feature 25 craft brewers with unlimited tastings and 10 local chefs will offer samplings of stews to festival goers. A tasting glass and a stew sampling is included in your general admission ticket. Our chefs will also offer creative small plates for sale. Each bite will be $2 or less! You’ll vote for the best stew and bite of the festival after trying each unique recipe.

Take a break from the chill of viewing ice sculptures and events around downtown Easton during the Chesapeake Fire & Ice Festival. Enjoy the warmth inside the Easton Volunteer Fire Department, sip on some of your favorite craft beers, fill yourself with mouthwatering stews, enjoy small bites, shop vendors, listen to live music, play a few games of chance, and have a great time with your family and friends!
