Around Firefly 2017

If you're a craft beer lover you don't have to put that on hold while you're at Firefly Music Festival - I mean, they have something called The (Dogfish) Brewery, for crying out loud! In case you missed our latest blog post, here's a quick catch up: Pairing Dogfish Head Beers All Weekend Long at Firefly Music Festival 2017.  

Past years at Firefly have been a blast, and every year they find way to make it a little more interesting, and in some cases, a bit more convenient. One update is Firefly Cashless, a very cool technology powered by Square.

If you have your credit card, debit card, Visa gift card, or other electronic payment methods (Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Android Pay), then you're all set. In reading more about Firefly Cashless on the Firefly's website, this sounds like a pretty darn great idea. Not only will you not have to carry cash (or get charged the crazy ATM fees if you need cash), but Firefly anticipates faster transactions. Can't beat that. We're also digging that there's no additional app to download (unless you're using Apple Pay, Samsung Pay or Android Pay). We're looking forward to seeing how much easier this makes the weekend. 

We all know that there's always a possibility that someone you're hanging out with isn't a total craft beer lover. For those folks, Firefly has put together so really cool partnerships to check out.

For the wine folks in your world there's a pretty cool situation happening at Firefly, the Dark Horse Wine Rose Lounge.

As part of the Dark Horse Oh Hey Rose 2017 Festival Tour they're offering a full service wine bar, pouring two new comers to their list of wines, Pinot Grigio and Rose. And did you notice the rooftop deck you can head up to catch a pretty sweet view from? Very coo.  

Fan curation was the theme of Firefly 2017. The Fort, a 'fan-curated' bar, is all about sustainability, using tons of recycled materials. You can check out yard games, food trucks and another very cool upper-level deck to check out what's going on over at The Lawn and The Porch.

Looking for a little beach action at Firefly? Looks like Malibu Rum will have you covered! Stop by the Malibu Beach House  to relax with games or a frozen cocktail. This looks like a spot that will transport you to a tropical vibe right in the middle of The Woodlands.

Everyone is going to need a little extra pep in their step as the days (and nights!) run longer and longer, that's when scoping out Confluence Coffee Co.'s The Nitro Firefly Cold Brew Coffee is definitely going to be worth it. You'll be able to find it canned AND kegged. Either way, keep an eye out for it around The Woodlands!

We're digging Firefly's partnership with Clif Green Notes, especially because they're all about reducing their environmental footprint. Just as important is raising awareness about the climate issues facing Delaware's wetlands. Green Notes also featured a very neat musical artists, a local hip hop group from Dover, Trio, who speak out about homelessness and hunger. Check out their Facebook page for more inspiring messages.

When you a little extra time on your walk from stage to stage or when there's a little downtime to your day, swing by for another round of brew from The Dogfish Brewery and take the time to take in all the fun experiences Firefly has to offer throughout the next several days. With so much going on around The Woodlands there's no way you'll have time to be bored this weekend!

See you in Dover!
