Sales of Early Access Tickets are now wrapping up for Kegs and Corks Craft Beer and Maryland Wine Festival on Saturday at the Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds. Early Access ticket holders may enter the gate at 11 am – that’s an extra hour of sampling before the crowd arrives! Early Access Tickets are $37.50 and only available in advance at www.KegsandCorksFest.com and is a 5% savings over the gate price which opens at noon.
In addition to over 70 wines from 16 Maryland wineries and 40 craft brews from 16 breweries, this year’s fest features HoopTea – brewed by the sun and steeped in the salty air on the beach of Ocean City, Maryland. Guests can also check out the Fiesta Forever ‘Rita Bar for their favorite flavor…or mix them up!
Tickets include a souvenir glass, sponsored by Commercial Home Builders, unlimited samples of featured beer and wine, and entertainment all day. Food and full glasses of beer and wine are available for purchase. Entertainment, sponsored by Union Jacks, will include live music from local bands Dublin 5, The Uncle Jack Band, and Two of Us.
Presented, once again, by Eye on Annapolis (hey, that’s us), the 2016 Kegs and Corks Beer and Wine Festival will benefit the Chesapeake Bay Trust. Find more information at www.cbtrust.org.
In response to the large crowd of 2015, this year will feature more breweries (RAR, Elysian, Burley Oak, and OC Brewing), more wineries (Urban Winery, Linganore, and wine smoothies), more food vendors, a new layout to avoid lines, plus more areas to cool off!
This event will be held rain or shine on Saturday from noon to 6 PM, with Early Access beginning at 11 AM.
