As a prelude to CT Beer Week (October 13-20), over 20 breweries from around the state will be converging a week early on Two Roads Brewing Company in Stratford for the first ever Connecticut Brewers Festival on Monday, October 6th from 6-9 p.m. Over 20 breweries will be in attendance with only 250 tickets available for festival-goers.
Tickets are $25, which gets patrons a pint glass commemorating the event as well as unlimited three ounce pours of some of their favorite CT beers. The event is 21+. All proceeds to this event benefit the Connecticut Brewers Guild.
Connecticut, like most places around the country, is seeing a boom in craft beer. In 2011, there were only a handful of breweries and today, over 25 breweries are operating within the Nutmeg State with more and more opening every month.
"Two Roads Brewing will make a great location for this fest, if you have not yet been there you should make a point to do so," said Bryon Turner, founder of CT Beer Trail. "Two Roads is a true craft beer destination, the building has a great deal of history and character, and visually the brewery is impressive; a great backdrop for this event that will benefit the craft brewers associated with the CT Brewers Guild."
In addition, only 250 tickets will be available for festival-goers, making this the hot ticket item of the autumnal season.
