(May 12, 2017) Live music from 12 bands and deejays in addition to unlimited beer tastings are just a few of the activities going on during the third annual “12 Pack of Local Music and Beer Fest” and beach opening party at Seacrets on 49th Street this Saturday, May 13, from 1-4 p.m.

“It is a summer kickoff party to the season, outdoors on the beach at Seacrets under the palms,” said Jackie Miller, Seacrets marketing manager.

There will be 12 local brewers on hand featuring a smorgasbord of craft beers, which can be paired with Seacrets’ menu items for an additional cost.

Burley Oak of Berlin, Evolution out of Salisbury, Dogfish Head from Milton, Delaware, Fin City of West Ocean City, 3rd Wave from Delmar, Delaware, Fordham & Dominion of Dover, Rubber Soul Brewing Company from Salisbury, Tall Tales out of Parsonsburg, RAR from Cambridge, Mispillion River Brewing of Milford, Delaware, Big Oyster Brewery from Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and Ocean City Brewing Company are the local breweries slated to provide samples.

There will be local bands and deejays playing simultaneously on the beach and pier stages throughout the event on 49th Street, Miller said.

“The stages are close together and you will be able to see both performances,” Miller said.

Light up the Moon, Breakdown, Cherry Crush, IV Stone, Audio Riot and Lovely Rita are a few of the acts scheduled to perform.

In addition, deejays Magellan, Tuff, Cruz, Mike T, Bobby-O and Davie are slated to spin tunes throughout the day.

Seafood, raw bar items, jerk chicken, ribs, wings and spicy dishes off the Seacrets menu can be paired with craft brews for an additional cost.

Attendees may also want to talk with brewers and experts to learn about the beer-making process.

More than 300 people came out last year. Attendees must be 21 or older and everyone will receive a commemorative event cup.

Tickets cost $30 in advance and can be purchased at Seacrets on 49th Street or online at seacrets.com/12Pack-Brew-Fest. At the door, tickets will be $35. Designated driver tickets will be available for $10 with unlimited soft drinks. For more information, call Seacrets at 410-524-4900.
