Mark your calendars for the Fifth Annual Kegs and Corks Craft Beer and Maryland Wine Festival on August 20, 2016. This event draws large crowds to the Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds for a unique festival that features craft beer and Maryland wine together.
In the Maryland Wine Pavilion, guests can sample over 60 exceptional wines from 16 Maryland wineries, while enjoying crab cakes, fresh oysters, and shrimp. The Craft Beer Corral features selections from 16 breweries from Maryland and across the United States. There are many new brewery and winery additions this year!
Tickets include a souvenir glass, unlimited samples of featured beer and wine, and entertainment all day. Food and full glasses of beer and wine are available for purchase. Entertainment will include live music performances by local bands Dublin 5, The Uncle Jack Band, and Two of Us.
Presented by Eye on Annapolis, the 2016 Kegs and Corks Beer and Wine Festival will benefit the local charity, the Chesapeake Bay Trust, which funds educational programs in schools to teach kids about the environment, on the ground restoration work that restores eroded shorelines, and community clean-ups and tree plantings that better our neighborhoods.
