Summer Sip 2015 an ale of a success

Downtown Salisbury Inc.’s Summer Sip Festival wrapped up Saturday after seeing more than 1,200 people participate in the two-day event.

Attendees walked through downtown on Friday, sampling a wide variety of beer brands. On Saturday, the festival moved to Salisbury’s Gateway Building for music, food and another round of beer sampling.

Salisbury band Wayward Reason played music throughout Saturday’s festivities.

For Friday’s Summer Sip Tasting Crawl, Downtown Salisbury had sold 672 tickets, according to Promotions Director Molly Ruf. Saturday’s ticket count was about 600 near the end of the event, according to Ruf.
