Amy Kundrat


CT Hops for Hope, an intimately-scaled craft beer festival in New Britain on August 30, 2015, is organizing a fundraising event with 100% of proceeds benefitting the Smith-Magenis Research Foundation. The event will feature a terrific lineup of 20+ craft breweries, craft beer enthusiasts, and food trucks.

Tickets are $45 for general admission and $55 for early bird admission, and will be available for sale beginning Friday, May 22 at 11 am. General admissions includes all brewery samples, but does not include the price of any food trucks, which will be selling their food separately. The event will take place at The Quartette Club in New Britain, rain or shine. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit cthopsforhope.com.

Great beer for a great cause?

YES! Four craft beer loving friends wanted to support a fellow craft beer enthusiast, his family, and other families like his; the Connecticut Hops for Hope brewfest was born. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the 501(c)(3) non-profit Smith-Magenis Research Foundation, which was founded in 2010. Please take a minute and read about Steve (CTMQ), his son Damian (pictured above), and the family.
