Ski Sundown hosts its seventh Brewers’ Fest at the mountain on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013 from 4 to 8 pm.
This scenic fall tasting experience will include thirty five of the “Who’s Who” in micro breweries and brewpubs from Connecticut and beyond. The band Poor Gordon will provide musical entertainment and a selection of grill foods, side dishes and snacks by The Meat House of Avon will be available for purchase.
"We're very happy to be teaming up with Ski Sundown again to highlight our state's growing craft beer culture," said Bryon Turner, Founder of the CT Beer Trail. "This is a great event and it will directly support our state's craft brewers' guild!" Members of the CT Beer Trail's “Trail Blazer Club” will enjoy a special price for tickets purchased at the door when they display their membership cards, just another way Ski Sundown supports the state's craft beer community
Tickets may be purchased online by midnight Friday, September 20, 2013 at skisundown.com for $25. Tickets will be sold for $30 at the door. You must be 21 or older to attend and a photo I.D. is required. Designated driver tickets are available for $20. The event will be held rain or shine and ample, free parking is available.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Connecticut Brewer’s Guild, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the craft beer industry in Connecticut.
