 Beer and brewing long have been a part of Maryland history. Starting when the Ark and Dove brought the first colonists over with provisions of beer, to Garrett Van Swerengin starting one of the first breweries in the colony, beer has played an important role at St. Mary’s. So it is only fitting that the Historic St. Mary’s City Foundation host an annual beer festival. The 8th annual BeerFest will be held June 23, from noon until 6 pm, rain or shine. The day’s activities include music by local bands, special tours of the Van Sweringen’s Ordinary exhibit, beer making demonstrations, a kids’ activity tent and activities in the State House. Visitors will also have the opportunity to taste the products of regional microbreweries, and to shop amongst select craft vendors, and grab a bite to eat from one of the food vendors.  All proceeds from this event will help further education and research at the museum.    Admission for tasters is $25.00; designated driver tickets are $10.00  Discounted tickets are available for military personnel at MWR offices throughout the Military District Washington region.  For additional  information and to buy tickets in advance, visit our website:  http://www.stmaryscitybeerfest.org
