Great Beer, Historic Aircraft, and a Worthy Cause

I've been asked to once again assist in the planning of the 5th Ever Not-So-Snooty Beer, Wine & Cheese Tasting Adventure. (see info on last year's event)

I'll be reaching out to local breweries and brew pubs again this year seeking their participation. Last year we had great support from local breweries and brew pubs and we're hoping for even more this year!

If you're part of a brewery and you're reading this, please consider participating. Leave a comment with your contact info, or shoot me an email and I'll get back to you... (bryon at homebrewbeer.net)

When: 11/20/2009 6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Where: The New England Air Museum Windsor Locks, CT
What: The event includes locally produced beer, wine and cheese, delicious hors d'oeuvres, raffles, coffee and dessert.
Price: Tickets are limited - $50 ($40 for Military)

Tickets are $60 at the door so pre-order tickets and save!
Email here for more ticket information!

All proceeds benefit The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.

I'll be posting more details on what breweries and brew pubs will be attending as they confirm their participation. Hope to see you all there!

Who's going to be there?
Here's the list of breweries and brew pubs so far...

  1. Awesome! Bryon, how do you get involved in the planning of this thing? I love the concept. My hope is that I can leverage my Alumni group to make this type of event happen up here. Let me know what's involved in the planning process and what contacts you're using! Thanks Buddy!

  2. Rob,

    I got involved in the committee through my previous Public Affairs and related community relations position in the military... My base support's the committee's annual space and aviation day... When I heard about the beer and wine event, I told them about my love of homebrewing and craft beer and they asked me to head up the beer portion of the event... I'll chat with you offline regarding contacts and what not...

  3. Sounds like a good time! I'll have to see how far this is from Jersey - maybe I'll make the trip!

  4. Scott, might be quite a road trip, but while you're up in the area, be sure to visit the local breweries that will be attending...

    Hope to see you there!
