FESTIVALS East Coast Brew Festival: Craft beers and tunes on tap at Fairfield Theatre Company.
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.”
