Come Celebrate the First Annual Sun BrewFest at Mohegan Sun!

18 Sep

Update:  a winner has been selected.  Using a random generator, we got the number 2.  Because Rob was the second person to comment about a beer he was excited about, he wins.  The catch:  he must grow the mustache. 

You have probably heard about Mohegan Sun’s WineFest, a huge celebration of wine and drinks that requires a map to find your way from booth to booth.  Well, they decided that they didn’t want to leave out our other favorite alcoholic drink:  beer.  Yes, beer lovers, here comes the first annual Sun BrewFest.  Two days of hop-loving action with over 100 different brews, including craft, microbrews, imports, limited edition, and even malt liquors.  Keep track of your favorites with a scorecard and drink it all down with your own souvenir tasting glass.  While you’re drinking, check out how beer is made, watch live demos, and even take part in some seminars.  There will also be food available from Michael Jordan’s 23.sportcafe, Jasper White’s Summer Shack, Bow & Arrow Sports Bar, and even more local restaurants.

$20 per session, includes souvenir tasting glass (also check out hotel packages)

Session 1: October 6th, Noon – 4:00pm
Session 2: October 6th, 6:00pm – 10:00pm
Session 3: October 7th, Noon – 4:00pm
A portion of the proceeds benefit Snowball Express (benefiting the children of fallen military soldiers)

Want to go for free?

Well, OmNomCT and Mohegan Sun have you covered.  Just comment on here and tell us which of the beers listed below you’re in love with or are excited to sample.  We’ll randomly pick a winner on Sunday (9/23) at noon. You’ll win 2 free passes for whatever session you like.  Here are the breweries and vendors that will be on hand:

    Grey Sail’s beers are fantastic. Canned too. They recently arrived in CT (located in Westerly, RI) so if you see their flagship Cream Ale or Extra Pale Ale then give them a whirl. They also bottle an Imperial Stout which is terrific in addition to some taproom only growler specials.

    Cheers!

    I am in love with PBR! The ultimate hipster beer. Hands down the best product this fest has to offer.

          Rob, we hope you win just to see pics of that. So, what kind? Handlebar is very hipster.

          That’s funny. No way I could do a handlebar mustache justice with only 3 weeks to grow it.

      Isn’t that weird how beer can bring you back to certain times or make you feel a certain way…nostalgia. It’s so weird. :)
