New Haven Register (New Haven, CT) - - GO -

GoodWorks En­ter­tain­ment is bring­ing its sec­ond an­nual East Coast Brew Fes­ti­val to the Fair­field The­atre Com­pany Satur­day, June 16.

The craft beer fest lineup, cu­rated by Kin­dred Spir­its & Wine, in­cludes Kent Falls Brew­ing Com­pany, Sin­gleCut Beer­smiths, Con­necti­cut Val­ley Brew­ing Com­pany, Two Roads Brew­ing Com­pany and Law­son’s Finest Liq­uids.

Fol­low­ing their per­for­mance at last year’s event, Ras Droppa is re­turn­ing to per­form in the FTC’s Ware­house venue in a reg­gae col­lab­o­ra­tion with Phat A$tro­naut.

“The Ware­house pro­vides a great open floor plan that al­lows us to in­vite a large num­ber of brew­eries to par­tic­i­pate,” Good Works spokesper­son Emily Less­sard said in an email in­ter­view. “Be­cause it is a mu­sic venue, it’s also great acous­ti­cally, al­low­ing beer lovers to taste and learn about the beers with­out feel­ing over­pow­ered by the mu­sic.”

Out­side at the FTC site tasty treats will be avail­able for purchse from three food trucks: Lit­tle Box Pizza, of Stam­ford, with fresh pizza pies; Drew­baQ, with all the bar­be­cue fixin’s; ’and BoothBay Lob­ster, from Stam­ford, with lob­ster rolls.

Craft gift and food ven­dors ex­pectwhose ed in­clude Owl Shop Ci­gar & Tobac­conist, of New Haven; Stock the Bar Can­dles, of West Hartford; Toma Ar­ti­sanal Bloody Mary Mix, of New Rochelle, N.Y.; and Maple Craft Foods, of New­town. Stock the Bar cre­ates unique and all-nat­u­ral can­dles out of re­cy­cled beer and liquor bot­tles. Maple Craft Foods will be sam­pling and sell­ing its sweet, all-nat­u­ral maple syrups. Toma plans to bring the “spice” with michelada sam­ples, while Owl Shop will set up a ci­gar lounge out­side of the venue for sip­ping and puff­ing.

A por­tion of the event pro­ceeds will be do­nated to Homes for the Brave, a lo­cal non­profit lo­cated in Bridge­port, mis­sion is pro­vid­ing hous­ing and ser­vices to in­di­vid­u­als ex­pe­ri­enc­ing home­less­ness, es­pe­cially Vet­er­ans.

“We se­lected Homes for the Brave as the re­cip­i­ent for a por­tion of the pro­ceeds from this event be­cause May is Mil­i­tary Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Month, Flag Day is in June and the Fourth of July is right around the corner,” Les­sard said. “It only seemed right to give back to an or­ga­ni­za­tion that helps those who served and gave so much for our coun­try.”
