Decked-Out Live! Returns For The Summer
Decked-Out Live! returns to The Vineyard and Brewery at Hershey on Friday, May 5 for another summer full of drinks and live music on the patio.
Here are a few helpful tips on what to drink and how to get the most out of your Friday summer nights with a drink in one hand, great music and maybe a little dancing.
The summer concert series runs through Sept. 15 with 22 shows featuring popular local and regional bands that offer a night of music for everyone.
Get a season pass!
To celebrate their 5th Anniversary, The Vineyard is selling season passes for only $25. A season pass gets you into all 22 shows throughout the summer, even if they are sold out.
If you can’t commit to a season pass, single tickets are available this year for only $5. If the show is not sold out, tickets will be available at the door, but if you buy in advance you will receive a free beer or wine tasting the night of the concert.
What to drink
Both The Vineyard and Brewery offer a variety of drinks to sip on while kicking back on a summer’s night. New for this year are cans of The Vineyard’s ciders and The Brewery’s beer.
With the new cans, grabbing a beer and getting back to the show is going to be easier than ever.
The Brewery is set to release Wit Walker and Pom Beach in cans for summer while The Vineyard is canning their ApPaul Revere ApPaul Pie Cider and Presidential Peanut Butter Cider.
Lageritaville is a refreshing Mexican-style lager that is light and satisfying during the hot summer months. It has a touch of sweetness with a smooth aftertaste that makes you want another.
Pom Beach Pomegranate Blueberry Wheat
If lagers aren’t your thing and you still want something light, then Pom Beach should be your go to. It has sweetness from the wheat malt and the fresh blueberries and pomegranate juice give a touch of fruit flavor.
Small Batch Beers & Firkin Fridays
Brewmaster Ryan Delutis keeps the tap list fresh with new and exciting beer styles on a rotating basis. Also be on the lookout for Firkin Fridays, where The Brewery taps an exclusive one-night-only firkin once a month.
This dry white wine features notes of grapefruit and spice with a floral rose-petal aroma. It has a medium body with a refreshing crispness.
Notes of dark fruit, plum, and currant are prevalent in this perfect blend of Cabernet, Sauvignon, and Merlot. Dry red wine drinkers should reach for this first.
This wine has sweet notes of grapefruit, melon, and mango and is a great way to cool down when the weather starts to get hot.
Other helpful tips to get the most out of Decked-Out Live!
Eat at The Vineyard or pack your own snacks
The Vineyard allows their guests to bring B.Y.O snacks and no night is complete without a spread of meats, cheeses, and crackers.
Check out beer and wine food pairing charts before you head out to The Vineyard so you can find the perfect pairing of food with your choice of wine, beer or cider.
If you don’t want to worry about bringing food, The Vineyard always hosts The Riverhouse Grille on the patio with a large menu for you to choose from.
Be early to get the best seat in the house
The Vineyard’s deck is massive and can accommodate all size parties from large to small, but get there early if you want to reserve a few tables.
While there is no bad seat on the patio, the good seats by the band go quickly. Get there when doors open so you can grab a drink and the best seat on the patio.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.
If weather becomes a problem on any night the party shifts from the patio to inside the large red barn to keep the music going strong.
