Bear Trap Dunes to host Blues & Brews event

Bear Trap Dunes will host a Blues & Brews event on Saturday, July 29, from 4 to 8 p.m. on the front lawn and amphitheater of Bear Trap, located at 7 Clubhouse Road in Ocean View. The debut event mimics the previously held autumn festival at Bear Trap but will be the first summer music event of its kind.

Hoping to create an atmosphere of a music festival, the event will showcase local blues band Lower Case Blues.

“It’s an event to celebrate the mid-summer with beer and blues music and barbecue. We’ll be bringing out the grill and selling plates of mac-and-cheese pulled pork bowls, and pulled pork and pulled chicken,” said Food & Beverage Director Craig Krick.

Along with the barbecue, the SnoYo Mobile will be selling frozen yogurt. Visitors to the event can also purchase beer from any of the four craft breweries in attendance, including 3rd Wave Brewing Company, Allagash Brewing Company, Founders Brewing Company and RaR Brewing.

“There will also be a dunk tank that you can pay to dunk the mayor of Bear Trap, some of our golf pros and others, with all the proceeds going to the Delaware Breast Cancer Foundation,” said Krick, “It’s going to be an afternoon to relax, to listen to some music, and to have a few beers.”
