A Craft Beer and Meatball Convention? Count Us In


Mispillion River Brewing is hosting its third annual craft beer and meatball convention on Saturday, April 8, from noon to 4 p.m.

Last year, over 300 meatball enthusiasts attended, and the event raised over $600 for the Food Bank of Delaware. The brewery hopes to double that donation this year.

Crust & Craft will be returning to defend its “Number One Baller” title, and will be competing with 13 other restaurants in three categories: “Traditional Balls,” “Balls to the Wall” and “Sweet Balls.”

Grain Craft Bar + Kitchen, which won the “Balls to the Wall” category last year with its venison meatball, will be entering a rattlesnake meatball this year.

Other restaurant competitors include: The Starboard, Restaurant 55, Crooked Hammock Brewery, Argilla Brewing Co., Brick Works Brewing and Eats, Dewey Beer Company, Cantwell’s Tavern, Bethany Blues, Mr. Bar B Que and Dewey Beach Club.

In lieu of charging for tickets, the brewery is asking that attendees bring a can of food or a cash donation for the Food Bank of Delaware.
