Over 40 casks . . . and we’ve got your shot at free tickets to attend this year’s event!

Thanks for all the great entries for this contest! We are excited to say that Melissa Dowers was randomly selected as the winner! Thank you all for entering . . . and we hope that you can still stop by!

The 2016 Craft 260 Cask Festival is taking place at the Scandinavian Club in Fairfield from 1-5 on June 12 . . . and there are a whole cask full of reasons to go. Well, actually, more than 40 casks full of options. That’s because 20+ local breweries from CT and the Northeast will be on hand with two casks each. Both casks that each brewery brings will have the same exact base beer, but there will be two different recipes to create two different beers. Also, it wouldn’t be much of a beer fest if there wasn’t food involved . . . and lucky for you that Craft 260 which we gave a 3.75 Nom rating to, will be catering the event! There will also be live music playing all day including Hide & Seek and CT’s own The Alpaca Gnomes. Plus, it’s damn nice to say that they will be offering up a portion of proceeds directly to the Connecticut Fallen Heroes Foundation. Continue reading
