The annual Kennett Winterfest, the amiable partner to the Kennett Brewfest and Kennett Summerfest, drew more than 1,600 beer lovers on Feb. 24, who sampled the tastes of 60 breweries along the 600 block of Broad Street.

While the festival drew many of the tried-and-true local favorites like KBC, Braeloch, Two Stones and Dew Point in nearby Yorklyn, Del., companies came from as far away as Jim Thorpe, Pa. and Dewey Beach, Del. to what has become one of the premiere beer festivals in the Mid-Atlantic region. The event also served as the official kick-off to the Chester County Cheers Trail (, a new initiative by Chester County Tourism that connects beer, wine and spirits lovers to breweries, vineyards, wine tasting rooms and distilleries throughout Chester County.

The event was sponsored by Kennett Collaborative, in collaboration with partners Chatham Financial, The Creamery, Jeffrey Norman Architects, Renewal by Anderson, Pollock Music Lessons, Waywood Beverage, Weaver Electric and Wilkinson Builders.
