The Fourth of July party doesn’t have to stop when the fireworks end this weekend.
Straws and Stripes at The Vineyard & Brewery at Hershey will continue the holiday festivities with their dual military appreciation and release party benefiting two local military charities from 11:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 9.
The winery will be releasing its Sparkling Strawberry wine, while the brewery will be rolling out a Strawberry IPA to coincide with the daylong music festival that will feature Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band “Tuesday’s Gone” as the headliner.

Strawberry IPA – 6.2% ABV 68 IBUs
Not your average strawberry beer. After brewing this IPA with Amarillo, Calypso and Belma hops to give the beer flavors of juicy citrus, mint and strawberry, Brewmaster Ryan threw it into the fermenter with a puree of Pennsylvania strawberries.
One keg of this beer will be on tap during the festivities, and the rest will be bottled and available for sale in 22 oz. bombers.
Strawberry Ginger Ale – Non-Alcoholic
For those of you who need to take a break or just aren’t into beer, Ryan used even more fresh-picked Pennsylvania strawberries to brew a refreshing ginger ale just for the event.
PLUS there will be a food truck mash-up, artisanal vendors, a silent auction benefiting two military charities and MORE.
Tips for spending the day at the vineyard:
- Buy tickets in advance! Pre-sale tickets are ONLY $15, but day of admission will jump to $20.
- Get there early to get the best views for the live music and to get the most out of the day. There is only one keg of Strawberry IPA and it will go quick.
- Don’t worry about the weather. The Vineyard offers many different venues, so this party will go on rain or shine.
