Abbott's Grill will present the 1st annual “Pick Our Summer Seasonal Beer Tasting Party ” Saturday, June 7, from 1 to 5 p.m. at Mispillion River Brewing, 255 Mullett Run St., Milford.
Kevin Reading and Laura Burton, owners of both Abbott's Milford and Laurel locations, are excited to bring Pick Our Summer Seasonal Beer Tasting Party to Milford for the first time. This event will be followed up by a “Tap the keg Summer Solstice Party” held June 1st on the patio at Abbott's Grill in Milford.
Pick Our Summer Seasonal Beer Tasting Party Is the brainchild of Abbott's Grill GM Johnny Walker. “I think it is great that our town has a craft brewery. I am excited to taste the beers they have brewed just for us. Meghan and Eric Williams, owners of Mispillion River Brewing Company, have such a passion for great beer, just like me!” said Walker.
“Our chefs will be cooking up fun foods that compliment beer,” said Reading.
Guests will be asked to taste the brews and vote for the one they think best represents Abbott's Grill. “So get out and Rock The Vote!” adds Reading.
“We are looking forward to hosting the Abbott's crew here June 7” said Eric Williams.
Delaware Natives, Eric and his wife and business partner Meghan came to Milford a few years ago. When asked “why Milford?” Meghan commented, “We wanted to raise our family in a community they felt we could be a part of.” They both felt there was a rebirth going on and Milford was ready for a local brewery. Meghan's dad, a home brew enthusiast, gifted Eric with a home brew kit. “It sat for years gathering dust” quips Meghan. Then one day Eric dusted it off and the rest is history. “It is so important to both of us to create a high quality product, and thanks to our brew master we do just that!”
The June 21 Tap the Keg Summer Solstice Party Is an opening Patio party where they will reveal the winning brew that is to become their summer seasonal. The event will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. on the patio at their Milford location.
“My family and I are so looking forward to both of these events,” said Abbott's Grill regular and Milford native Jay Bailey. “It is just awesome to have a local brewery in our town!” Baiely, an Abbott's Grill Mug Club alumni, says he always enjoys the community events sponsored by Abbott's Grill. “Owners Kevin Reading and Laura Burton are so involved with our town, they really care about Milford and I think that is just great!”
