2014 Historic Odessa Brewfest
Raise a glass to new Odessa brewfest
The Historic Odessa Foundation and Cantwell's Tavern is hosting an inaugural Historic Odessa Brewfest this Saturday from 2-6 p.m.
(VIP tickets, which are now sold out, include early entrance at noon.)
Cantwell's Tavern will provide locally-sourced food and Middletown's Fromage – A Cheese Boutique will offer plates of cheeses paired with different styles of beer – and wine, too.
More than 45 local and national breweries, and some of the newest beers on the market by Oskar Blues, Lagunitas and New Belgium, will be represented.
Historian, beer lover and Colonial re-enactor Rich Wagner will demonstrate the brewing process from start to finish.
Known in the 1700s as Cantwell's Bridge, Odessa has some finest examples of 18th- and 19th-century architecture in Delaware, including the 1822 Brick Hotel, which remained an inn until the 1920s, and today is home to Cantwell's Tavern. It is a farm-to-table gastropub operated by the Ashby Hospitality Group.
General admission tickets are $45; the cost for designated drivers is $10 and includes food, music and vendors, and free soft drinks.
