Our beloved Eastern Shore is home to a plethora of local breweries and wineries. When autumn rolls around, we look forward to spending time outside and enjoying all the local beer and wine festivals The Shore has to offer. Traci Huggans, Sales Rep for 3rd Wave Brewing Co. told us, “I am always sad to see summer end, especially after the awesome one 3rd Wave had, but as soon as I hear the word ‘fall’ I think YES the best beer festivals of the year, fall flavors to try, and the weather is perfect!” We have to say we agree. So, in order to save you the time, we’ve rounded up a list of all the wine and beer festivals on Delmarva coming up this fall:
