Winterfest Luring People In With Free Beer This Weekend

Winterfest Brewfest makes everyone's favorite beery ice-skating venue just a little beerier.

Matt Stanley/DRWC

A weekend full of pretty but inconsequential snow and relatively comfortable temperatures easing into the 40s sounds like the perfect time to go down some free beer in a fancy tent before taking a few spins around the ice-skating rink. What luck: the Lodge at Winterfest is hosting just that very thing this weekend. Winterfest Brewfest runs from Friday, January 23 to Sunday, January 25, with free sampling from a handful of nearby brewers (and one winery, who we suspect may be bringing cider) and other events throughout.

The sampling schedule is as follows:

Friday, January 23
Sly Fox and Weyerbacher, 5 to 9 p.m.

Saturday, January 24
Yuengling and Twin Lakes, noon to 4 p.m.
Evil Genius and Cape May Brewing, 4 to 8 p.m.

Sunday, January 25
Hauser Estate Winery and Dock Street, 1 to 5 p.m.

In addition to the sampling, there are a few other events scheduled throughout the weekend, including quizzo on Friday night, live music on Saturday night, and a homebrewing demonstration on Sunday afternoon. Full details are here.
