Gather on Historic Main Street for a vast selection of brews, food, and local artisans.

Maryland is known for a lot of things -- blue crabs and Old Bay come to mind, just to name a couple. But if there's anything the Old Line State could get a little more love on, it's our breweries.

Maryland is home to a slew of inventive beers, wines, and spirits that could easily rival the best of the Pacific Northwest (two words: Flying. Dog.). This April 27, support businesses in the state of Maryland with Reisterstown's Beer and Wine Festival!

Between Village Center Road and Historic Main Street (across from Cards Comics & Collectibles), visitors can sample an array of refreshing beers and wines all locally made in Maryland. Fill your cup with libations from Flying Dog, Jailbreak Brewing, Monument City Brewing, and Charm City Meadworks, or raise your glass with some wine from il Dolce Winery and Great Shoals. More vendors will be announced soon, so keep an eye on the website for more updates! 

Getting hungry? Grab some savory bites or a sweet treat from one of the many food trucks available for the event. Browse local vendors for a special souvenir to take home with you and enjoy live music sampling the greatest hits of the '80s, '90s, and beyond! Truly a sampler we can get behind.

Advanced tickets are $30 or can be bought the same day for $40. They include unlimited samples as well as a commemorative cup. Designated drivers receive free admission and can pick their tickets up at the event. Reserve your tickets here.

The event will also benefit The Reisterstown Improvement Association and The Northwest Chamber of Commerce in helping them maintain Reisterstown's local economy and culture. It's a win-win for good times and a good cause!
