Here’s a fun twist on a beer tasting: Connecticut Cigar Company has invited Beaver Beer over to party. You’ll be able to try Blonde Beaver (pale ale), Brewnette Beaver (amber lager), and Big Red Beaver (IPA) and you’ll also get a nice hand-rolled cigar to smoke up during the tasting. While you’re enjoying the brews and stogies, enjoy live music from Luke Ryan. Tickets aren’t expensive, either. You’ll pay $20 if you’re a member or $25 if you’re not a member…plus 10% of all ticket sales go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Call CCC at (203) 425-9668 to set up your reservation ‘cuz this will probably sell out quickly.
If you’ve never been to Connecticut Cigar Company, it’s a pretty slick place. There is the main shop when you enter that has beautiful cigars, hand-rolled, and ready to go. If you walk a little more you’ll see a swanky lounge area where you can sit, smoke, talk, and relax. Another killer feature of the lounge is that it’s BYOB. Yup, bring your own bottle of awesomeness with your own cigars or buy some of theirs. Use of the lounge area is free for members, while non members pay a $20 sitting free.
Here’s some info about membership:
A basic membership of $60 a month will get you locker space for you cigars and liquor. You’ll get 10% off all purchases at the store. You’ll also receive the first invites to any events, whether they are public or private. Also, you could rent out the lounge area as a member. The best perk is that you can bring a guest with you for free. There is also a shared locker and a full locker membership that cost more, but also give you other perks and more room for storage.
