Good Beer Festival Starts Friday
SALISBURY, Md.- Beer, beer and more beer. That's what is in Pemberton Park this weekend.
Friday evening kicked off the 10th annual Good Beer Festival. But don't let the name fool you. There's much more to this event than beer.
"One-hundred beer lines like we've always had. One-hundred types of beer. Lots of different food vendors, entertainment, bands going every single day. We have some great entertainment lined up," said James Simmons, recreation superintendent for Wicomico County.
Games such as beer pong, ring-toss, and corn-hole give you the opportunity to win prizes. Live music is playing all throughout both days of the festival. But everyone is a winner when they first walk in. Each ticket to the festival includes a refillable glass.
"Everyone, as they come in, they'll get their 3-ounce taster glass. That's going to be filled up with the Pemberton Porter. So as soon as you come in you get a beer right in your hand and then you can come in and try others but that 3-ounce sample glass gets you unlimited sampling," Simmons said.
The second day of the event is Saturday from 12:30-5:30 p.m. Tickets can be bought at the venue. Those under the legal age limit can attend too, as long as they purchase a "Designated Driver" wristband.
