In celebration of the Kennett Brewfest’s 25th anniversary, founder and “Brewfest King” Jeff Norman talks about how it all began—and honors the breweries that took a chance on a fledgling festival in “Kennett where?”
A legendary event that has been lauded as one of the region’s premier craft brew festivals had its humble beginnings back in 1998.
“I recall Bill Covaleski, co-owner of Victory Brewing Company, rolling up to the inaugural Kennett Brewfest in a beat-up white van, no logos, and rolling two half kegs out, setting up his taps, and pouring some of the best beer I had ever tasted,” says Norman.
Please join us this Thursday at 6:30pm for a thought-provoking panel discussion with young leaders from the Kennett Emerging Leadership Fellowship, followed by an opportunity to ask questions, give feedback, and learn how you can get involved with initiatives that are working towards building a community that is welcoming and inclusive for all.
The featured projects will include the Red Clay Park and Trail, the new Kennett Library, and the project that South Broad Partnership is proposing for 600 South Broad Street.
Yes, it's true—as thanks for working a later shift, anyone volunteering to help at 3pm or later is invited to bring their own growler to fill up at the end of Brewfest!
In addition to the warm, fuzzy feeling that comes with contributing to a great cause, all volunteers receive a volunteer t-shirt, tasting mug, and free admission to the Brewfest before/after their shift. (Must be 21 or older to volunteer.)
