Back in 2009, The Sound Magazine started an event to raise money for PAWS of Norwalk that highlighted local music and breweries. As each year went on, the event grew bigger and bigger. This year, the Harvest Festiv-Ale will be at Monster B’s in Stamford. There’s plenty of room there for people…and for beer. The sudsy festival will take place on October 20 from 3 pm until closing time (time for you to go back to the places you will be from). +5 points if you get the reference.
15 different breweries will be represented with over 50 different beers to choose from. Here is just some of what to expect:
- Lake Placid Brewery: Pumpkin Ale, Festbier, Autumn Rye & More
- Saranac Brewery: White IPA, Octoberfest and Pumpkin Ale
- Pyramid Brewery (we visited recently): Hefeweizen, Apricot, Oktoberfest and Snow Cap
- Widmer Brothers: OKTO Festival Ale, Falconers IPA (Rotating Series), Nelson Imperial IPA, Pitch Black IPA, Old Embalmer Barley Wine, SxNW
- Goose Island: TBA
- Half Full Brewery: TBA
You can also chow down on some great Oktoberfest style food from The Park Cafe from Greenwich who will be on hand.
There will also be live music from The MSM band and Stalking Sally.
Entry is $15, the day of or $10 if you get your tix at Monster B’s through Friday. Remember that your entrance fee will help PAWS in their quest to rescue homeless pets and place them in perfectly fur-friendly new homes. Be sure to drink up when you’re there because 10% of drink sales will go to PAWS! Also, you’ll definitely want to check out the hourly raffles to win great prizes and packages from Ridgefield Playhouse, Capitol Theatre, and Sport N Life.
