13th Annual Food and Brew Festival Coming to Main Street

Newark, DE

The Downtown Newark Partnership and Out & About Magazine are proud to host what has become a summer tradition: the Downtown Newark Food and Brew Festival. The 13th Annual festival will take place on Saturday, July 23, 2016 from 2-9 p.m. on E. Main Street and S. Main Street.

“The Newark Food & Brew has become a rite of summer,” said Jerry duPhily, publisher of Out & About Magazine. “When we partnered with the City of Newark to create this event 13 years ago, craft-beer focused events were a novelty. Today, they’re commonplace. But the beauty of this event is that it encourages guests to explore Newark and actually visit the many participating restaurants. It’s an ideal showcase for the city’s dining scene.”

Food and Brew showcases more than 40 craft and imported beers paired with creative food offerings from 18 of Newark’s restaurants. Unlike most beer festivals, this is a pay-as-you-go event that takes place in the restaurants.

“Food and Brew is much different than just a regular Saturday at any of the participating restaurants,” said Community Affairs Officer Megan McNerney. “The restaurants are pairing specialty plates with the beers to give customers a unique experience.”

Keeping with tradition, Out & About Magazine will be offering guests free samples of gourmet root beer at their station on the Academy Lawn.

This year’s event will also include a shuttle service to take participants from E. Main Street to S. Main Street. The shuttle stops include: Newark Shopping Center, Academy Building Lawn, 36 E. Main Street and Greene Turtle Restaurant.

Three bands will be performing at the Academy Building Lawn during Food and Brew. The music line-up is as follows:

– 2:30 – 4 p.m., Jason Ager
– 5 – 6:30 p.m., Steve Oakley Band
– 7:30 – 9 p.m., TreeWalker

Food and Brew is made possible through the support of generous sponsors: Honeywell, JMT, Kitchen Magic, Standard Distributing, BreakThru Distributing, Fusion Racing and Courtyard Newark at the University of Delaware.
