Hosted by the Third Avenue Village Association, attendees will be able to stroll along Third Avenue while enjoying unlimited tastings from breweries, distilleries and wineries, with local food vendors on site selling delicious dishes. This year’s music lineup includes a mix of styles with performances from Sure Fire Soul Ensemble, Sandollar, and The Sleepwalkers.

"This event is meant to highlight the amazing brewers in the community and worldwide as well as bring the community together for a fun afternoon with live music, good food, and of course some tasty ales!"
