Chesapeake Brewing Company will be hosting the ultimate harvest beer bash on Sunday, October 13.

Summer is the time of light wheat ales—the kind you sip on your front porch with friends. But with temperatures cooling, it's time to embrace the rich spices that make fall brews so great. Chesapeake Brewing Company will be the site of what's to come at the Annapolis Harvest Brew Festival!

From 2 to 6 p.m., beer aficionados can try varieties of new harvest beers from some of the state's best breweries. With eight breweries participating, guests will find lots to "pour over" with brewery owners and the beers themselves. We can picture this event being pretty "hoppin" (okay, we'll stop), so buy your tickets today. Along with good food and drinks, your attendance will also support local charities in the community!

No festival is complete without food, and this year they're really going all out with their menu. Dine on burgers, crab cakes, and giant pretzels, which you can enjoy on their ample outdoor patio. And with the brewery just a stone's throw away from the Naval Academy, there's plenty of restaurants and shops to visit within walking distance. Make a day of it with some exploring around town

Here are some things to know before you go:

  • This event is rain or shine.
  • Due to the limited nature of these breweries, tickets are reserved for up to 80 visitors; if you're interested you'll want to buy them ASAP!
  • If you plan to drive, West Street has street parking and plenty of parking garages nearby. For cyclists, bike parking is available outside the brewery.


To buy tickets, you can visit Chesapeake Brewing Company's website or through their Facebook page.
