Fordham and Old Dominion Brewery to Host Inaugural R2HOP2 Beer & Music Festival

By coastalbrews March 6, 2012

Dover, DE – The Fordham and Old Dominion Brewing Company will host the inaugural R2Hop2 Beer and Music Festival, Saturday, May 19, 2012, from Noon-6pm, at the brewery located in Dover, Delaware.

The festival coincides with American Craft Beer Week and will feature many of the brewery’s specialty beers, including Oak Barrel Stout and Hop Mountain.

Over the course of the day, four live bands, Bond & Bentley, The Grilled Lincolns, Pasadena and the Rovers, will take the stage. Bond & Bentley is a high-energy six piece band recognized for their soul-stirring melodies. The Grilled Lincolns play what they like, period, and have shared the stage with the Roots. Pasadena offers smooth bass lines, emotional lyrics, and intricate rhythms.  Likewise, the Rovers have taken the Celtic music scene by storm with their unorthodox rocked out traditional music.

President and CEO of Fordham and Old Dominion, Jim Lutz, stated “Our business motto is ‘Make friends, brew good beer and have fun.’ And we believe that the best way to share our mantra is through this beer and music festival.  It’s a great opportunity for the brewery to give back to the local community while having fun. ”

Don’t leave the kids behind – there will be lots for them to do in our children’s coral.  This private area will feature face painters, balloon artists, an exclusive event coloring book and a local fire truck to climb on! Kids will also enjoy the brewery’s Root Beer and Ginger Ale.

Tickets are $20 prior to the day of the event and $25 at the door. Kids under six years old are free.  Visit http://tickets.ramsheadlive.com/eventperformances.asp?evt=566 to purchase tickets.  A portion of the ticket sales will go to benefit the local fire department and the Dover Air Force Base 436th Force Support Squadron.

The 436th Force Support Squadron (436 FSS) provides quality morale, welfare, recreation and support services for the Dover Air Force Base community.  It is dedicated to providing quality programs and activities to a total force of over 30,000 including retirees and almost 5,500 active duty and reserve service members and nearly 4,500 family members.  These programs in the realm of Airman & Family Services, Community Services and Sustainment Services are designed to enrich the lives of the airmen and their families with opportunities for adventure, travel, dining, relaxation, fun and excitement, while keeping the military community healthy and fit.
