The Vineyard and Brewery at Hershey is quickly becoming one of the premier event destinations in Central PA and on September 19 from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. they celebrate their biggest event of the year. The Merlot & Flash Gourd’n Release party has been growing exponentially since its inception just two years ago. This year, they expect to surpass last year’s crowd of 5,000 by ramping things up with a special appearance by Paul Teutul Sr. of Orange County Choppers fame, and of course, an appearance by the famous Merlot Mike. The two deliver the first batches of 2013 Merlot and Flash Gourd’n pumpkin beer at the Vineyard and Brewery’s signature event.
Grab a glass of Merlot and the Brewery’s Flash Gourd’n pumpkin beer and settle in for a full day of fun starting at 10:30 a.m. The event includes food trucks serving food all day, a craft fair, live music at the Pond Stage beginning at 12 p.m. and continuing throughout the event (bands include Wave Quartet, All Jacked Up! and Don Johnson Project), a free wine tasting from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. followed by Merlot Mike and Paul Teutel Sr. making an appearance at 2 p.m. The event culminates with a giant bonfire beginning at 6:30 p.m.
