Raise your Glass (and Keep It!): Unlimited Pours at Love on Tap!

At this point, it’s an annual FeBREWary tradition we are reinvigorating for 2024. We go to Seacrets (it’s almost more fun in the wintertime), we listen to some good music and we drink great local beer, with about 700 others. And we might be a little bit biased since Shore Craft Beer is our sister site and all, but honestly, Shore Craft Beer Fest: Love on Tap at Seacrets is genuinely just a really, really good time. 

Shore Craft Beer Fest: Love on Tap 2024

Next time you make plans to take a winter vacation in Ocean City, I can’t recommend highly enough that you come during Love on Tap. For the most part, I’ll let the pictures and video speak for themselves. But even if you think you’re not a craft beer person (in which case you probably either “don’t like beer” or can’t put down the Budweiser), there truly is a beverage for everyone, made right here on Delmarva. From chocolate stouts to fruity sours to traditional pale ales, there’s a little bit of everything on tap at Love on Tap. 

If you would rather not try to find the beer you like, then stick with our non-beer options:  one of many fruit flavors of Hoop Tea + the American Original, Buzz Meadery’s seltzer/mead hybrid, Sinepuxent Brewing’s blueberry hard seltzer and pineapple cider.

Everybody Gets a  Commemorative Pint Glass

Or at least the first 1000 people in the door do.  The commemorative pints are really pretty this year with the event logo printed on a full-sized pint glass.  You should add one to your cabinet for daily use to remind you of the fun you had at the event.  This is just a proof, the real thing is better!


VIP Tickets Still Available

If you want an extra hour with access to all the breweries, you want a really cool commemorative t-shirt, and you want to mingle just with other VIPs during that first hour, then spring for the VIP tickets.  It’s only $25 more and the 100% cotton t-shirt is VERY cool AND VERY limited.  

This 100% cotton, soft heathered red t-shirt has this logo on the back and a “Drink Local” pocket logo on the front.

Buy Your Tickets Online & Save $

If you want more information, you can go to ShoreCraftBeerFest.com.  You will find all the breweries, the beers and other beverages that are being poured, and other information on the event this Saturday.  If you are ready to buy your tickets, you can use the code “soldout” to save $5 per ticket.  Everybody who enters HAS TO BE 21.  There are Designated Driver tickets available.  You will still be carded, you will not get a glass, but you can join your friends at the party and buy drinks from the bar if you like.

14 Breweries, 30+ Beverages, All You Care to Drink

You can’t beat three hours of all you can drink plus a commemorative glass pint for only $40.  That’s all you can drink of OVER 30 DIFFERENT LOCALLY MADE CRAFT BEVERAGES!  From craft beer, to cider, to hard seltzer, mead, and hard tea.  Bump to VIP and you get an extra hour of all you can drink.  Then, use the code:  “soldout” to save $5 and you are all set for the best party of the season – all at Seacrets, Jamaica USA.

Don’t forget to get your tickets online in advance.  That’s the only way to save your $5.

2018 was the first year that the sun decided not to come out, but at least it wasn’t too cold!  2024 will be sunny – perfect for an indoor beer festival with outdoor access!
