Brewfest News

I am not a beer drinker, but if I were to be transported back 300 years to colonial Delaware, and specifically Historic Odessa, from where I am writing this column, not only would I be imbibing the amber brew on a daily basis, but I would most likely be homebrewing it as well.

Eat This, Not That!, the world's #1 nutrition website, has chosen the Historic Odessa Brewfest as the #1 brewfest in the State of Delaware.

Dating all the way back to the first #brewfest in 2014, the Odessa Brewfest has orchestrated a fun online #brewbracket. We think it's fun the breweries take it seriously. All previous winners: 3rd WaveMispillion RiverBlue Earl, and Bellefonte will be pouring at this year's festival.

The famous Odessa Brewbracket contest is back! This year, 32 breweries from Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey will compete for the title of Champion! The winner will be decided by Brewfest voters on the day of the event, September 11th, 2021.

Tickets for the Brewfest 2024 are on sale now. VIP tickets are, once again, expected to SELL OUT.
