Ever tried a Lamborghini Cheeta, Coconut Mudbank or a Voluptuous Fuzz? Your chance is coming.

Delaware-made (and a few regional) tipples are center stage at the 10th Delaware Beer Wine and Spirits Festival, happening at the Delaware Agricultural Museum & Village in Dover on Saturday, Aug. 24. It’s the only festival in the state to celebrate the whole industry of craft hard beverages, with 22 breweries (including one meadery), a winery and four distilleries.

It’s no secret that the craft beverage industry has had a boom in the last few years, with more beers, wines, spirits and meads than you can possibly sample in a day — but that doesn’t mean you can’t try. You know, for the local economy.

The event will include live music from Blue Cat Blues and the Clifford Keith Band.
