2017 Historic Odessa Brewfest

Odessa, Delaware: A Town, a Tavern, and a Dream

Nicholas Som

On September 9, 2017, nearly 2,000 people converged on the tiny town of Odessa, Delaware, for the fourth annual Historic Odessa Brewfest.

But the carefree festival atmosphere belies the importance of the event to the Historic Odessa Foundation (HOF), which works to preserve the many historic properties in town. Beside the obvious goal of raising funds for the organization, the Odessa Brewfest also benefits the HOF in less tangible ways. Profits aren’t the only point of the Brewfest—people are, too.
