Winterfest Brewfest Hits Blue Cross RiverRink This Weekend

This weekend, January 30-31, RiverRink Winterfest celebrates the local beer scene with its annual Brewfest.

Update: Due to inclement weather, Winterfest Brewfest will be postponed until January 30 and 31.

In need of a bracing beverage to get you through the first big chill of winter? Head to the Delaware River Waterfront this weekend.

Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest’s second annual Winterfest Brewfest hits the Penn’s Landing winter village Saturday and Sunday, January 30-31.

All weekend long, local brews will flow inside The Lodge. On Saturday from 1 to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m., local breweries are setting up shop at Winterfest to pour free samples, chat about hops and malt and peddle beer swag.

Unlike some beer festivals, Winterfest Brewfest is not a ticketed event for a specific time. Instead, it’s free to attend, includes free beer samples, and runs all weekend long with different breweries on different days.

Depending on the day, different local breweries will be pouring free samples. Guests are limited to six free samples each.

On Saturday, look out for the folks from Evil GeniusForgotten Boardwalk, Dock StreetWeyerbacher and Cape May Brewery. Plus, live music rounds out the good times on Saturday night.

On Sunday afternoon,  raise a brew with Sly Fox, Heavy Seas and Jack’s Hard Cider.

This weekend also brings the perfect chance to taste test the brand-new Winterfest collaboration beer — Lodge Cabin Lager — a German-style festbier brewed by Sly Fox Brewing Company just for the wintertime destination.

All of the brews will be available for purchase in addition to the free samples, too.

Beyond the beer, RiverRink Winterfest’s other amusements will be in full swing, too. Think ice skating, s’mores, games, fire pits and more.

If you haven’t been to Winterfest yet, this is another great excuse to check it out. Check out our photo guide of Winterfest, which visually documents all of the reasons you need to visit.


Update: Due to inclement weather, Winterfest Brewfest will be postponed until January 30 and 31.
