16 Mile Brewery hosts Tailgating Games fundraiser

October 20, 2017

16 Mile Brewery hosted the Delaware Tailgating Games & Fireworks Festival, sponsored by Schagrin Gas, Schell Brothers and Insurance Market, Sept. 30 to benefit Children & Families First. It was a free event, open to the public. 

“Everything about this celebrates our proud history,” stated Brett McCrea, owner and founder of 16 Mile Brewery. McCrea’s statement refers to his brewery’s name, dating back to the early 1700s when Georgetown, 16 miles from anywhere in the county, was the gathering place for farmers, merchants, politicians and community members to meet up. “An event that welcomes everyone and benefits our most vulnerable families and children honors and continues our legacy as a community gathering space,” continued McCrea. 

The Tailgating Games Tournament is an elimination-style team tournament, where teams of four compete in a series of fan favorite lawn games like cornhole, ladderball, can jam, life sized beirut and more.
