Is it ever good to be in a slump? It is if that slump comes from Bottle Slumpers. Created by Sue & Richie Michael of Earleville, Md., Bottle Slumpers offers an extensive selection of beer, wine and liquor bottles recycled into unique cheese plates, spoonrests, nut and candy dishes and wall decorations.
The American Homebrewer's Association released their annual list of top-ranked beers and breweries for 2015, and many of the names on the list will be very familiar to those who attended the Odessa Brewfest last year. One-third of the top 25 breweries and 17 of the 49 listed best beers in America were available for sampling on the beautiful grounds of the 1769 Warner-Wilson house.
If you attended the inaugural Odessa Brewfest in 2014 you were probably aware of our popular brewbracket contest, which pitted craft beers head to head, tournament style.
The Odessa Brewfest returns to historic Odessa, Del. on Sept. 12, and our live music lineup has expanded for 2015. This year, in addition to the return of reggae songsters Spokey Speaky, the brewfest welcomes The Hung Jury (country), Bruce Anthony (acoustic jazz and blues) and Bob Stretch (acoustic modern rock).
