Join us for our 8th Annual, Barleywine Festival. This is hands down, the largest Barleywine Festival in the Mid-Atlantic. We will be showcasing 30+ Barleywines from around the region and across the county. This is a two day event. Saturday the 24th will be broken into 2 sessions with a shift between 3-3:30pm. Doors open at 11am. Their will be different Barleywines for the 2nd Shift on Saturday!!  Sunday the 25th will be a single session starting at 10am until close.

Admission is free and bar area seating is available on a first come, first served basis.  Please call the restaurant if you would like to reserve a table or booth.

Bill has been diligently working to get as diverse representation of Barleywines as possible, including some rare vintages, from breweries across the region and nation. Please note that this list is subject to change and these Barleywines are expected to be on tap over the two-day festival.
