F15, 17-31 ON THE COVER The 11th annual DeLand Craft Beer Festival comes to downtown DeLand this Saturday afternoon. [THE CANOVAS PHOTOGRAPHY/PROVIDED] ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR Jewell Tomazin, jtomazin@news-jrnl. By Jewell Tomazin jtomazin@news-jrnl.com The Granada Grand Festival of the Arts will bring just about every- thing you could ask for in an art festival: visual art displays; live music; artist demonstrations; a kids' art zone; wine; and, of course, food. More than 80 artists and crafters will not only display their works, but conduct live demonstrations of their techniques and provide hands-on activities in downtown Ormond Beach for the sixth annual event. Most of the artisans are local and will represent a wide variety of media. It's an opportunity for artistic youth and adults alike to gain exposure to new art forms, with DIY demonstrations in woodworking, pottery, broom making, spray art, calligraphy, sand art and classic painting. A young artists' tent will display artwork made by students ages 6-18, which will be available for purchase. Along with art teacher Pat Spano, the students will help show young festival goers how to create their own artwork. A wine festival is part of the event, with S.R. Perrott offering samples of more than 25 types of wine from 1 to 4 p.m. Tasting tickets cost $15, and proceeds benefit nonprofit Ormond Beach Arts District. There will be food for every taste, with food trucks — including Stoked Poke, Ramon Alvarez Caribbean Kitchen, Sweets-n-Eats and Josie's Latin Fusion — serving gourmet sandwiches, hand-cut fries, ethnic foods, vegetarian options, desserts and more. Giant pretzels, beer, wine, sodas and lemonade will also be available. Setting the mood are jazz musicians and live bands, who will perform throughout the day. More entertainment includes performances by theater troupes, a kids' zone, games, face painting and a bouncy house. The festival is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday behind the Ormond Beach City Hall and Public Library Complex on South Beach Street in Ormond Beach. Admission and parking are free.

Granada Grand Festival of the Arts celebrates arts, music, wine Event brings 400 cra beers from brewers locally and around the country By Jewell Tomazin jtomazin@news-jrnl.com It's a safe bet that no one in downtown DeLand will go thirsty Saturday. The ever-high demand for craft beer will be quenched this weekend with the cool, refreshing DeLand Craft Beer Festi- val. Brewers from around the country and locally will bring more than 400 types of beer for ticketholders to sample at the 11th annual event. Each brewery will have a different type of craft beer, said Desiree Freeland, events information coor- dinator for the MainStreet DeLand Association, the nonprofit that organizes the festival. Some of the major distributors at the festival can bring up to 10 or 15 of their beers, while smaller ones may offer two or three. "There are so many different tasting options," she said. "I certainly think demand comes from the enthusiasts, who enjoy every part of craft beer. They're interested about the flavor and taste, of course, but also the pro- cess of making it." Guests can try all types of beer, from classic lagers to stouts, and bold IPAs to light wheat beers. They'll sip them out of sample cups, which are miniature beer mugs designed to double as "a souvenir to take home," Freeland said. One local brewery attending this year is the Half Wall Brewery in New Smyrna Beach. It's their third appearance at the festival, and Head Brewer and Manager Raul "J.R." Rivera Jr. said they will have three beers, possibly four, to choose from this weekend. Those include an IPA, blond ale and an Irish red ale. "The fourth one is probably going to be the stout, because that's our biggest, biggest seller and the most popular," said Rivera, a brewer of six years. The festival is "insanely awesome," Rivera said. "Everyone sets up a booth. They have their table covered with their own merchandise they might want to give away," he said. "Each brewery will have their variety, or something new, or some- thing crazy just to get a feel for taste and how it kind of handles in the keg. That's brewer science." Other local breweries attending include Volu- sia County's Persimmon Hollow Brewing Com- pany, Ormond Garage, O N D E C K F O R T H E W E E K E N D Try new brews at DeLand Craft Beer Festival Festival goers sip beer samples and browse vendors at the 2018 DeLand Craft Beer Festival, with the Historic Courthouse as the backdrop.
