Saturday seems to be the go-to day this weekend for coordinated events, but don’t get down on the other days of the weekend! There are still plenty of breweries doing special releases and participating in Stout Month in various ways to keep everyone busy.
Friday 15 – Saturday 16: Join Factotum Brewhouse for a party celebrating four years of brewing. Both days will feature special releases, food trucks, and music.
Saturday 16: Head to the Springs for Bristol Brewing Company’s 15th annual Firkin Rendezvous, where over 30 breweries from across the state will push, pull or drag their firkins of cask-conditioned ale to Bristol for your sampling pleasure. The fun starts at 1 p.m. so don’t be late! Note: This is a ticketed event.
Saturday 16: Closer to home, River North Brewery celebrates seven years with seven beers. They’ll be pouring seven barrel-aged beers including a special anniversary ale, along with various one-off keg tappings. On the food side they’ll have a mini birthday cake and beer pairing with Good Sugar Baking, plus a food truck.
Saturday 16: In an unusual combo, Alpine Dog Brewery will host a beer and oyster pairing, although it’s not unprecedented as it’s the fourth annual event. At any rate, it’s pretty much as advertised; a couple of special release beers and oysters!
