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.
Tickets are $40 each . . . and you’ll definitely get what you paid for with all that great beer and food. But, let’s say you wanted to win two free tickets . . . well, we’ve got ya covered by working with Beerfests.com! Just tell us, by replying below, what one of the most unique beers you ever had was. It doesn’t have to be a cask, btw. For example, our most unique beer was right at the Dogfish Head Pub in Delaware. We had a beer that was brewed with stewed beef. It was actually pretty good with a subtle and oddly satisfying savoriness to it. The contest starts now and goes until 5/25 at 8 pm. At that time, we’ll pick a random winner of the two tickets and will update this post.
Here are the breweries that are taking part with more to be added: Two Roads, Thomas Hooker, Black Hog, Firefly Hollow, New England Brewing Co, Relic, Stubborn Beauty, Veracious, Stony Creek, Cambridge House, Beer’d, Lock City, Aspetuck Brew Lab, Overshores, City Steam, No Worries, Half Full, Singlecut Beersmiths, and Otter Creek.
