Blue Soul Fest is a celebration of all things craft beer and music — featuring local, regional and national live musical acts, and great local food trucks!  A specialty Blue Earl Brewery beer will be released at this event.  Sample our selections in “The Juke” or at our festival biergarten.

Come for a celebration of fall-inspired beer, food, and fun!  There will be live music outside, bocce ball, a moon bounce, a dunk booth, face painting, and other activities.  Bring the whole family!  In addition to kids’ activities, there will be fall foods and more than eight varieties of beers freshly brewed on site, including their Boogsley’s Brew (pumpkin ale) and Deshais De’squash (Belgian pumpkin ale).  The fun starts at 11 a.m. and lasts until closing!

Argilla Fall Fest 2016

SUNDAY, October 16th

Ready to get your German on?  Got a hankering for some Huhner Schnitzel?  Grab your stein and head for Iron Hill.  Until October 30, enjoy a special food menu highlighting traditional Oktoberfest fare.  And, of course, no Oktoberfest would be complete without a proper German beer.  Iron Hill has produced a medium-bodied lager that has a wonderful sweet, malty and bready aroma and a firm malt flavor, balanced with mild bitterness and a clean dry finish.
