The 4th annual Easton Beer Fest, sponsored by Town & Country Wine, Liquor, etc., is Saturday, October 5. Maryland’s largest indoor craft beer festival will bring together nearly 45 breweries from the Mid-Atlantic and beyond. The featured brewers will offer samples of roughly 100 different styles of craft beers, ciders, and meads. There is live music by Black Dog Alley, entertainment by DJ Stay-C, food, raffles, and vendors selling unique items and beer-related gifts.
“Each year we strive to bring something new,” Chris Hash, event organizer and 11-year member of the Easton Volunteer Fire Department said. “We are adding new brewers such as Evil Genius, Bull & Goat, Full Tilt, and Peabody Heights, to name a few.”
