By Kara Hallissey | Apr 26, 2018

(April 27, 2018) Live music and craft brews highlight the fourth annual “12 Pack of Local Music and Beer Fest” at Seacrets on 49th Street this Saturday, April 28, from 1-4 p.m.

“This event is really fun because it gets all the local bands and brewers together as well as local people at a time when the weather is finally breaking to enjoy some libations and music,” said Jackie Miller, Seacrets marketing manager. “Many brewers are bringing their spring seasonal beers with hints of fruit flavors and refreshing tastes to get you ready for summer.”

There will be 12 local brewers on hand featuring a smorgasbord of craft beers, which will be paired with Seacrets’ menu items for an additional cost. Attendees can enjoy unlimited samples of more than 25 craft beers.

Evolution of Salisbury, Dogfish Head from Milton, Delaware, Fin City of West Ocean City, 3rd Wave from Delmar, Delaware, Big Oyster Brewery of Lewes, Delaware, Backshore Brewing from Ocean City, Tall Tales out of Parsonsburg, Crooked Hammock Brewery of Lewes, Delaware, Rubber Soul Brewing from Salisbury, Mispillion River Brewing of Milford, Delaware, Blue Earl Brewing out of Smyrna, Delaware, and Ocean City Brewing Company are the breweries slated to provide samples.

“Almost every type of beer will be here,” Miller said. “From ales and IPAs to sours and pale ales.”

Dogfish Head will have its SeaQuench Ale, brewed with sour lime juice, lime peel, black limes and sea salt at a 4.9 alcohol content, which can be paired with garlic mussels and raw oysters.

Evolution will be offering its spring seasonal Sprung, which is a light golden ale brewed with honey, hibiscus and chamomile at 4.9 percent alcohol content. Seacrets crab cakes, a seafood quesadilla and the Callaloo Salad are suggested food pairings.

The Male’Ana, which is a grapefruit IPA with 6.8 percent alcohol from 3rd Wave, pairs well with jerk chicken and assorted cheeses, Miller said.

There will be several bands and deejays playing throughout the 49th Street venue at the Tiki Stage, Main Bar and Morley Hall Nite Club. Expect to see local bands from the Eastern Shore in addition to musicians from Philadelphia and New Jersey.

The afternoon kicks off at 1 p.m. with Bob Wilkinson from Opposite Directions on the Tiki Stage, Radio Neon performing in Morley Hall at 1:15 p.m. and Pearl starting off performances in the Main Bar at 1:15 p.m.

The next round of performers will begin at 1:45 p.m. with Eastern Electric at the Main Bar and the Rogue Citizens on the Tiki Stage followed by DJ Tuff spinning the tunes starting at 2 p.m. in Morley Hall. At 2:30 p.m., DJ Mike T spins tunes on the Tiki Stage while Audio Riot rocks out in Morley Hall and DJ Davie takes over the Main Bar stage.

The final round of performances will begin at 3:15 p.m. with South Paw on the Tiki Stage and Triple Rail Turn at the Main Bar followed by DJ Cruz spinning tunes in Morley Hall beginning at 3:30 p.m. DJ Davie closes out the event on the Tiki Stage, starting at 4 p.m.

More than 300 people attended the annual event last year. Guests will again have the opportunity to talk with the brewers and learn about the crafting process.

“It is a great deal,” Miller said. “We want people to come out and enjoy themselves.”

All attendees will receive a commemorative event cup and must be 21 or older with a valid ID.

Tickets cost $25 in advance and can be purchased at Seacrets on 49th Street or online at seacrets.com/12pack. At the door, tickets will be $30. Designated driver tickets will be available for $10 and includes unlimited fountain soda.
