RIVERHEAD, Long Island, NY — Craft beer, wine and food make a nice smorgasbord. Put them together with live music and the right setting and you have the 5th annual North Fork Craft Beer, BBQ & Wine Festival.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, August 13, hosted by the picturesque Martha Clara Vineyards at 6025 Sound Avenue.
More than 50 craft breweries from across the country will have their products available, along with local wines and barbecue food prepared by Maple Tree BBQ.
The event will feature local beers from Blue Point Brewing Co., Greenport Harbor Brewing Co., and Great South Bay Brewery. It will take place rain or shine, with multiple tents available to shelter attendees, breweries, wineries and special vendors. Weather permitting; the middle of the field will have tables and chairs for your comfort and enjoyment. A barbecue sandwich and side dish are included with each paid admission.
The festival will help raise funds for the Kent Animal Shelter and the Terry Farrell Fire Fighters Fund. It will offer two sessions — a VIP session from 1 to 6 p.m. and general admission session from 2 to 6 p.m. Details are available online
. Organizers emphasize that once tickets are sold, no additional admissions will be permitted. Attendees must be 21 or older.
