Stroll through the living history attraction, visiting a village full of historic structures: blacksmith, candle maker, tin smith, broom maker…and more than a dozen log cabins and cottages, cozily warmed by crackling fires in their stone fireplaces, serving as temporary homes to some of the finest brewers in Pennsylvania.

Doors open to general admission ticket holders at 1pm for an afternoon of tastings and meet-and-greets with representatives from craft brewers and distributors, while enjoying live music by Jackson Monsour, campfire, s’mores and food for sale provided by unique food trucks with smoked barbecue and much more. Enjoy a hops display provided by Olde Bedford Brewing Company, Bedford County’s first craft brewery; Visit the WattersWorks photo cabin for a history-inspired photo-booth with sepia prints.
