Opal Divine's Penn Field Location hosts fest

The 11th Annual Merry Maltster Whisky Festival is back at Opal Divine's. This is the holy grail for fans of Single Malts and blended Scotch and Irish whiskys. Not only will you have the chance to taste over 65 whiskys, in many cases the brand ambassadors will be there to answer your questions.
