Beer and charity...perfect together!

Fellow Nutmeg State resident Bryon over at brought my attention to a great beer-related charity event going on in November. The 4th Ever CT River Valley Not-So-Snooty Beer, Wine, and Cheese Tasting Adventure will take place on November 21, 2008 at The New England Air Museum in Windsor Locks, CT. If you are local, I strongly urge you to attend. You might even get a chance to meet me!

The event will feature locally produced beer, wine, and cheese, as well as hors d’oeuvres, raffles, coffee, and dessert. Tickets are $45 ($35 for members of the military), and all proceeds will benefit The Hole in the Wall Gang. The Gang runs a camp in CT for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases, and is certainly a worthy cause.

So far, the participating brewery/brewpub list includes:

  • Boston Beer Company
  • Olde Burnside Brewery
  • City Steam Brewery Cafe
  • The Cambridge House
  • Sherwood Forest Brewers
  • John Harvard’s Brew House
  • Thomas Hooker Brewery

If you are a affiliated with a CT brewpub/brewery and are not on that list, give Bryon a shout and get on the list.

  1. Thanks for the plug Jim! I’m working closely with a major CT craft beer distributor to add more breweries to the list, so stay tuned!

  2. Jim,

    Just in case you missed my response comment on my site, there’s a brew fest tomorrow night in Hartford… Let me know if you want details…

  3. Oh, by the way, the ticket price went up a bit… Not my call, but jsut want accurate info out there… Thanks!

    Tickets are $45 ($35 for members of the military)

  4. Bryon – thanks for the heads up on the price change – I’ve changed the post to reflect the new info.
