The museum will host its annual BeerFest on Saturday, June 22, from noon to 6 p.m. The event will take place on the State House Lawn, 47418 Old State House Road in St. Mary’s City.
The day’s activities include music by local bands, the Van Sweringen’s Ordinary exhibit (one of the first taverns in the colony), and the popular beer- and cider-making demonstrations. Visitors can sample local cuisine, taste a variety of regional craft brews, and shop from local craft vendors.
