The Local Beer Garden, featuring select Eastern Shore breweries, will be back this year, along with the Home Brew Competition. Learn more about making beer in both Pro Brewer Beer Talks and home brew demos.

Attendees may choose to play new carnival-inspired Beer Games to try to win prizes, and there will also be cornhole, wall hooky and oversized games to partake in. The Sports Zone will feature the Washington Redskins v. Baltimore Ravens football game on the Sunday of the festival. The first 100 fans through the gate on Sunday sporting a Redskins or Ravens jersey will receive a free Good Beer Festival souvenir.

I drink at home. This is no different than when they had fireworks at Greenhill country club. They had a deputy directing traffic leaving there but never a dui checkpoint anywhere near there on 4th of july. Maybe rich white people don't drink n drive.
