The 7th Annual Malt-A-Palooza fall festival returns on Saturday November 13 from 12pm 5pm at Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show Grounds in Chester County. Showcasing malt-centric food, beer, and spirits, this family-friendly event will feature games, face painting, live music, and more!  

Traditionally an in-person event, Malt-A-Palooza 2020 traded its typical bucolic farm setting for the computer screen thanks to COVID restrictions and public safety considerations. Malt-A-Palooza founder and host Deer Creek Malthouse partnered with CRAFT at Chatham University and the Grains and Revolution Conference to engineer a virtual gathering. Meanwhile, Breweries in PA joined Deer Creek to organize the inaugural PA Pride collaboration brew, bringing together breweries from across the Commonwealth to produce a hazy pale ale made with 100% PA grown and malted grains. 

 This year, we celebrate the resilience of our community’s malt value chain and the small businesses that have powered it through adversity. Representing that community, a diverse line-up of food and beverage artisans and organizations will share their goods and services on November 13. Refreshments will include beer from Artillery Brewing Company, Crime & Punishment Brewing Co., Locust Lane Brewing, Lucky Cat Brewing Co., Stable 12 Brewing Co., Sterling Pig, Troegs Independent Brewing, and Urban Village Brewing Co., spirits from Manatawny Still Works and Spring House Spirits, and food from Crafted Grains, Veggielicious Foods LLC, Birchrun Hills Farm, and Partners Creating Community.  

Rounding out the event will be educational programming from Imperial Yeast, University of the Sciences, ZH Hops and Fawn Hill Hop Yard. Meanwhile, attendees will enjoy live folk music from The Cheddar Boys, Charles Darwin and the Knuckle Draggers and Hey Slow, and have a chance to explore work from local visual artists. Children can enjoy face painting by Birl Girl Designs and bubble show from Bubbletopia.

 Tickets for Adults over 16 are $8 in advance and $12 day-of. Admission is FREE for children under 16. Find tickets here.
