Partner Contributes to St. Mary’s City Beerfest

This past Saturday, over 1400 people from across Southern Maryland gathered at the 4th annual Historic St. Mary’s City Beerfest. The festival marked the culmination of a year’s worth of planning by managing partner, Samuel C.P. Baldwin, Jr., chairman of the Beerfest Committee. Festival visitors enjoyed beer from six different in dependent breweries, food that ranged from Bear Creek BBQ to Bollywood Masala, and local artisans. The festival provided fun for the whole family,featuring activity stations for kids, beer and cider demonstrations, and tours of Van Swearingen, one of the first taverns in the American colonies. The event also featured live music by the 25th Hour Band, Juhn Luskey and the Justin Myles Experience.
