50+ Breweries Set to Attend 2019 Brewfest
Tapping into a love of history and local brews, the sixth annual Historic Odessa Brewfest will be held Saturday, September 7 from noon to 6 p.m. Nearly 50 regional and national craft breweries are expected to pour beers.
A VIP tasting (cost is $70) begins at noon, and general admission ($55 in advance, $65 day of) doors open at 2 p.m. The $15 cost for designated drivers includes food, soft drinks, and water.
The event also includes local gourmet food, live music on two stages, and artisanal vendors on the grounds of the 246-year-old Wilson-Warner House, considered one of the finest Georgian homes in Delaware.
Tasting America’s Big, Experimental Flavor
Some of the finest beer in the world is brewed in the United States, including a varied selection of fan favorites. This is obvious when you attend the annual Odessa Brewfest, which hosts over 50+ breweries that are proud of their American heritage and American-style beer.
The most common style of beer produced by many big breweries is American lager. Some of Odessa Brewfest’s smaller breweries, however, also produce various other styles like amber ale, cream ale, and California common. America’s devoted craft beer scene has also produced major winning styles like American Pale Ale, American IPA, Black IPA, and American "Double" or "Imperial" IPA.
Delaware Is Home to Many Fan Favorites
The First State is a "hop-bed" of craft brewing; some of the finest beer in the world is brewed within its borders. This is evident at the Odessa Brewfest, which always hosts some of Delaware's finest beers. The proof? The fans say it best: every year the Odessa Brewbracket winner has been a Delaware brewery!
The Delaware breweries at Odessa Brewfest love creating new experimental flavors combined with a quality brew, to surprise and delight your taste buds. Depending on the brewery, you can find fruity, spicy or tangy flavors highlighted — perfect for any discerning beer lover.
