Sev­eral thou­sand fes­ti­val-go­ers emerg­ing from win­ter hiber­na­tion into bright sun­shine de­scended on Sper­ryville last Satur­day for spec­tac­u­lar Yeaster cel­e­bra­tion of­fer­ings of roasted lamb and oys­ters, grilled veg­gies and breads, spicy brats and fer­menta­bles — and of course bar­rels of craft beer and other li­ba­tions. “How about this?” com­mented Cop­per Fox Dis­tillery’s Rick Was­mund, as he sur­veyed the tremen­dous turnout. So many came that Jen­nings Car­ney of Pen Druid Brew­ing left the beer tap­ping to his brothers so he could help di­rect traf­fic. Seen here show­ing off their plates of fresh lo­cal pick­ings, at what was of­fi­cially Rap­pa­han­nock’s 6th beer and food fes­ti­val, is Char­lie (seated) and Joe Vescio of Ar­ling­ton.
