Attendees can peruse through the booths of nine different food vendors to be found along Mill Street during the Brewfest as well listen to live music from the band Dying Breed, who are scheduled for the main stage.

Davies showed off a unique 5 oz. glass tasting mug attached to a lanyard that will be given to Brewfest attendees Saturday.

“We’re going to have fun, people will check in to get their tasting mug, and they’ll have all this sponsor bling,” Davies said, showing off sunglasses and stickers that will also be passed out.
