Woodstock 2018: A Craft Beer Fest
Back in the late ‘60’s, “hippies” gathered at Yasgur’s Dairy Farm for a weekend of peace, love, and Woodstock. On Thursday, June 14, 2018 hundreds will gather at Normandy Farm (once America’s largest dairy farm) to relive this historic festival.
As you pick up your friends in your VW minibus, make sure that the Grateful Dead is blaring through your speakers so everyone knows that you’ve arrived at the farm. All of your senses are ignited as you enter the Groove & Graze Beer Fest. Smoke is wafting in the air from the barbeque pits and smokehouse station powered by Whole Foods Market. The seafood bar’s aroma teases you like you were already at the beach, while the soup and salad bar is as colorful as the tie-dyed shirt that you’re wearing!
Hendrix, Santana, and The Who were just a few of the acts that played at Woodstock and we will pay tribute to the sounds of classic rock and the modern artists they influenced, featuring a performance by The Lindsey McKay and Soul Sauce. Slip in to “concert mode” and just sit back and enjoy the band along with a cold craft beer (or two, or three because you can have as much as you want!).
Sly Fox Brewery is our featured draft for the evening and we will offer several other craft beers including 2SP Brewing Company, Dogfish, Evil Genius, Yuengling, and Dockstreet Brewery to sample as well. A little unknown fact about Sly Fox is that in addition to brewing over 100 different varieties of beer, they are also the “outdoor enthusiast” beer of choice. As you sit under the stars, you are all outdoor enthusiast while you feel the beat of classic rock, graze on delicious food, sip ice cold beer, and give thanks that summer has finally arrived
Let’s finish by dressing the part and dig up your most comfortable “hippiewear” including bell bottom pants, tie dyed anything, John Lennon ‘60’s style round glasses and any peace sign accessory you can find. Forgot your flower crown? No worries. You can make your very own at Willow & Thistle’s Boho Chic Flower Crown Station.
