Event Recap|5th Annual Chesapeake Crab & Beer Festival @DrinkEatRelax #Baltimore #Crabs #Beer #Fun

You know it’s summertime in Baltimore when steamed crabs are celebrated at festivals all around Charm City! I recently attended Drink Eat Relax’s “Chesapeake Crab and Beer Festival” and had a crabby good time! This is the 5TH ANNUAL Maryland Tradition and compared to the past years of this fun foodie event, it just keeps getting better! The Festival is an ALL-YOU-CARE-TO-TASTE extravaganza complete with over 30,000 crabs, lots of beer, arts & crafts, live music, family fun and so much more! Take a look at what over 30,000 people have come to enjoy.

•LOTS OF SUMMERTIME FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!

Families and Friends came out in fun hats and custom made tees to enjoy this festival. There is a beach area for kids to play in the sand, yard games for everyone to enjoy, live music to dance to and so much more! This family friendly event is popular because KIDS 3 AND UNDER ARE FREE! However, there was a KID’S CRAB ONLY PACKAGE (AGES 4– 20): $29 Advance (plus taxes & fees) This option offered guests ages 4 -20 an ALL YOU CARE TO TASTE experience of Crabs, Corn on the Cob, Cole Slaw and Potato Chips. (Ticket purchasers with VIP ticket holders will be GUARANTEED communal seating under a tent.)

•ALL YOU CARE TO TASTE BEER/WINE

Over 50 beers and wines and a few spirits were available for unlimited tasting during the festival! All of your favorite craft beers and some great wines were served to highlight summer. Nothing says summer like a glass of rosé and I especially enjoyed sampling the variety of rosé wines that were offered.

•ALL YOU CARE TO TASTE CRABS.

Enjoy all the crabs you can handle during the four hours of the show. The crabs vary in size from medium to large and will be offered at 6 crabs at a time, per person. ALL CRABS ARE SEASONED! *ALA CARTE CRABS OPTION WILL BE SOLD 6 CRABS (1/2 dozen) AT A TIME PER PERSON FOR $35 (WHILE SUPPLIES LASTS)

I attended the ALL YOU CARE TO TASTE VIP experience. Guests received a souvenir mug and mallet, unlimited tastes of the beer and wine on-site. This includes ALL YOU CARE TO TASTE Crabs, Corn on the Cob, Cole Slaw and Potato Chips.* Ticket purchasers are GUARANTEED communal seating under a tent.

•BEER MUGS.

Beers are served in our mug so you can sit and enjoy the day. If you are not a crab lover you can opt to buy a ticket for the ALL YOU CARE TO TASTE BEER experience. Guests will enjoy a souvenir mug, unlimited tastes of the beer and wine on-site. Any food will be purchased ALA CARTE.* Ticket purchasers cannot enter the VIP Crab & Beer Tents, but some limited seating is available first come, first serve.

OTHER GREAT FOOD.

There are Crabs and MORE CRABS and MORE CRABS and even MORE CRABS – but there will be other great food options as well available for purchase. There are no vegetarian options available. Unless outlined – all food is sold ala carte. I got the chance to finally try Urban Oysters. This creative pop up restaurant is the brainchild of a young entrepreneur Jasime. Thanks to her dad, she grew up with a love for oysters. I had been following her on IG and was excited to finally try them out. Chargrilled is their preferred way to make them. Using creative yet familiar toppings makes them very accessible for those who may be trying them for the first time. Just look at these beauties!

•LIVE MUSIC.

Sit back or get up and dance to the fun summer sounds from area bands!

THOUSANDS OF TABLES AND CHAIRS AND HUGE TENTS

Plenty of seating for crackin’ to your heart’s content. They even ordered enough crab paper to stretch all the way across the Harbor and back. ALL SHOW FEATURES are undercover – so Rain or Shine – we were all fine.

All in all, we had a crackin’ good time! If you missed the event it is coming back in August at the National Harbor in DC. For more details go to www.mdcrabfest.com!

#Baltimore Event|Photo Recap 4th Annual Chesapeake Crab & Beer Festival @DrinkEatRelax 

If you were not in Baltimore,MD this past Saturday 6/24/17, you missed a crackin’ good time at the 4th Annual CHESAPEAKE Crab & Beer Festival !

Held at Rash Field-Inner Harbor, this festival is the epitome of summertime in Maryland: fun, friends, beer, music and steamed crabs! If you love Maryland Blue Crabs steamed in seasonings and served hot,then the ALL-YOU-CARE-TO-TASTE VIP tent is for you. 

I attended the event with my husband, a native Baltimorean, and he was quite impressed with how organized the event was and how delicious the crabs tasted. After checking in, once you get your wristbands, you can opt to walk around to try other food vendors, sample beers, liquors, wines, play some games, dance to live music, buy crabs a la carte and sit at picnic tables OR if you bought the VIP option you can head to the tent for the unlimited crab feast. 

Inside VIP are signs that let you know 6 crabs are served at a time and not to worry, they won’t run out! Along with your tray of crabs you get: a souvenir beer mug, a crab mallot, corn, a bag of UTZ chips ( a MD fave) cole slaw, melted butter, vinegar and extra seasoning. There was plenty of seating along with paper towels and buckets for shells. Friendly staff was always on hand to empty those buckets and to help with anything that was needed. Both serious crab lovers and new eaters can be seen in the tent throwing down on these crustaceans. Beer and Wine was available inside the tent as well. Everyone seemed to be satisfied, smiling and enjoying the crab feast! 

SobeSavvy TipI would highly recommend going and buying early! Tomorrow at 10am – mid year sale begins! 2-4-1 tickets available for the 1st 50 ticket purchasers on June 27th
