Eastern Shore Beer Festival Oct. 9-10

Can't get into Baltimore for Baltimore Beer Week?  Or feel like escaping the madness for the Shore?

Salisbury, Maryland is hosting its first beer festival on Oct. 9-10.  The Good Beer Festival is scheduled for 12:30 to 6:30 each day at the town's Pemberton Historical Park, along the Wicomico River west of downtown Salisbury and south of Md. Rt. 349. 

Breweries expected thus far include "hometown" Evolution Brewing, 16 Mile Brewing of Georgetown, Del.; Dogfish Head, Brooklyn, Victory, Rogue, and Anchor.  A total of twenty breweries and 50 beers are expected.

The park is also holding an Autumn Wine Festival the following weekend.

Sandy,

You wrote, "Salisbury, Maryland is hosting its first beer festival on Oct. 9-10." Actually there was Suds at the Shorebirds hosted by the local minor league team this past May 1st (though you'll see there were more big brewers than craft brewers listed).

You know, I'm not going to argue. I have vague recollections of a beer festival in Salisbury in the early 1990s, when Wild Goose was still over in Cambridge. The "first" claim was made by the organizers, by the way.
