Funk Fest ft. Rare + Funky Brews w/ Charcuterie Pairings to Benefit Hole in the Wall Gang

2 Sep

Jeff Roberts, the man behind the burgeoning Facebook group (over 300 members) Craft Beer Enthusiast Union, has organized a beer event to satisfy all the beer geeks out there: Funk Fest 2015. Jeff joked around, saying that you don’t want to be the person who is looking at Untappd checkins and feel all left out. So, instead, go treat yo’self and get down to The Outer Space in Hamden on 11/22 at 3 PM for a benefit to go down in the history books for The Hole in the Wall Gang. Tickets are $85, can be purchased now, and are selling out with only 20 left.

So, let us bend your wrists a bit . . . here are just some of the breweries that you can taste (each beer selected is a 90 or above on Beer Advocate, btw):

• Cantillon

• Drie Fonteinen

• Wicked Weed

• New Glarus

But, it’s not just chugging down beer after beer, official BJCP Rich Loomis will be on hand to introduce the different brews that you’ll be drinking. In addition, the funky beer entries will be paired with prime cheeses and charcuterie by chef and brewer Matt Zabor. And, rounding things out, there will be lots of other things like giveaways of some very exclusive items.
