SoNo Marketplace, Walrus + Carpenter Join at Beer Garden for Firefighter Pig Roast Fundraiser

3 Sep

Heat & Hops Fundraiser for Norwalk FirefightersBack on August 26, we told you about how great SoNo Marketplace’s new Farm Terrace Beer Garden was.  Craft brews, most local, line the 12 draft lines and the selection of brews by can are very admirable, too.  And, like we said, this is what you imagine a beer garden to be like:  an outdoor area, chilled, laid back, nice vibe.

Well, they are wasting no time in doing more great things with this space (they opened with a benefit for Bully Breed Rescue).  On 9/7 from 2-5 pm, SoNo Marketplace is teaming up with Walrus + Carpenter in Bridgeport for a American craft beer tasting and pig roast.  Walrus + Carpenter is the newest BBQ joint that has hit the scene in Fairfield County and is based out of Bridgeport where Ash Creek used to be.  On Saturday they’ll be spit roasting two pigs in two different ways:

1) Mopped with coconut water and served with a peach/pepper chutney.

2) Brined and smoked.

Keeping things local, Walrus + Carpenter got both pigs from Saugatuck Craft Butchery of Westport, too!

Tickets are just $15 and benefit the Norwalk Professional Fire Fighters, Local 830.  In addition, there will be live music from The Artie Tobia Band.  This is definitely an event that you won’t want to miss, especially considering how you’ll be helping the bravest people who risk their lives every day for Norwalkers.
