About this event

Welcome back, beer and history lovers! For the 8th year, history and beer will unite at the Blue Ball Barn at Alapocas Run State Park on Saturday, October 29 from 5-9 p.m. This year's Brew Story event will be hosted INSIDE at Blue Ball Barn and courtyard.

Join Delaware beer historian John Medkeff and a panel of guests for "The Rise of Canned Beer ", a discussion about how canning transformed Delaware's brewing industry in the post-Prohibition era and has done so again in the 2010s. Enjoy samples from these local craft beverage makers:

  • Argilla Brewing Company
  • Blue Earl Brewing Company
  • Dew Point Brewing Company
  • Liquid Alchemy
  • Midnight Oil Brewing Company
  • Stitch House Brewing
  • Twisted Irons Craft Brewing Company
  • Wilmington Brew Works

Raffle baskets filled with brewery merchandise, gift certificates, tasting vouchers, and more will be up for grabs.

Ticket prices are $40 general admission (includes access to the event, unlimited beverage samples, and a SiliPint tasting glass) and $10 for designated drivers (includes access to the event and a reusable water bottle). You must be at least 21 to attend this event.

All proceeds from ticket sales and raffles benefit the Friends of Wilmington Parks and Restore the King, the campaign to save Delaware’s King Gambrinus statue.
