Hoppy Harvest Party

Stable Craft Brewing is hosting its debut Hoppy Harvest Party this weekend.

The party will take place at the brewery located at 375 Madrid Road in Waynesboro from noon to 8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 15. Adults and children alike are invited to take part in Stable Craft’s fall festivities.

Attractions for the adults include caramel apples, apple butter, live music from Brent Hull and Stable Craft’s 16 beers on tap in the taproom. Activities for children ages 12 and under include a costume contest and the Great Pumpkin Contest.

For the costume contest, Stable Craft encourages children ages 12 and under to dress in their best Halloween costume to compete for a $50 prize. The Great Pumpkin Contest is a pumpkin-decorating competition where the winner will also receive a $50 prize.

In Stable Craft’s constant spirit of supporting local agriculture, the pumpkins were supplied by Ed Miller, a farmer located in Waynesboro.

Children will be able to decorate their pumpkins with colorful paints, and the winner of the Great Pumpkin Contest will be photographed with their pumpkin. The photograph will be displayed in the taproom following the party.

Matt Milhit, Stable Craft Brewing’s taproom manager, brainstormed the idea to host the Hoppy Harvest Party. In the spirit of creativity, Milhit carved a Fumpkin pumpkin. Fumpkin is Stable Craft Brewing’s seasonal pumpkin beer.
