CASA of Allegany County is a non-profit community organization that hosts a wine festival in partnership with the Maryland Wineries Association every year in downtown Cumberland. It is their primary fundraiser of the year. The event drew about 1,200 attendees last year (a large percentage of which came from the Hagerstown/Frederick demographic) and continues to grow. After 3 consecutive years of receiving countless requests for local beer, the event has finally changed from a wine festival to a wine and beer festival.
On behalf of these two organizations, I would like to invite you to attend this year’s event. It would be a great opportunity to gain exposure in Cumberland and given your proximities, I think it would be a great fit. We are extending this offer to the breweries within the closest proximity to Cumberland first so please let me know if you are interested.
There are only 1 brewery spot remaining which will be allotted on a first come, first reserve basis.
