The organizers have also added the following information. Shannon says…
Carton Brewery is one of our Taste and Talk speakers. They will be doing an informative session on the brewing of craft beers. Beer is not included in the ticket price for Appetite and will be sold only at our bars.
they have elaborated on the beer too. Izzy says…
Carton is scheduled to be in our Taste and Talk Tent on Saturday. This event will be unique to our area and not the typical “food and music’ festival that many people are used to. We’re featuring some very creative and interesting folks in our Taste and Talk Tent along with mixology workshops, wine tastings, some great food trucks, and live music on the patio. We’re working with Point Pleasant Distributors to curate a beer tasting on our patio and will be featuring some of their smaller breweries like Long Trail. On Sunday afternoon we’ll be hosting an Italian wine tasting in the Taste and Talk tent, the details of which are still being hashed out. And of course, we’ll be featuring a celebrity chef on our main stage each night, Ina Garten on September 5, Anne Burrell on September 6, and Joe Bastianich with Victor Rallo on September 7.
Aside from Carton being in our tasting tent, we’ll have some interesting seasonal beers on tap on our patio all weekend.
