All Grain Brewing Day and Raffle
August 29th is building up to be a spectacular day for the beer lover and brewer. As part of our on-going attempt to educate and entice the future brewers of the world, we are once again hosting another all grain brew day. This is a free event and will consist of multiple home brewers brewing up their favorite concoction on their very own equipment right here at the doorstep of Brew and Wine Hobby. Along with being able to watch each of them utilize their personalized skills of the craft on different types of equipment, you will be able to exchange ideas, ask questions about their techniques, and, if you ask nicely, even taste some of their very own home brews.
As a bonus to this event, we will be holding a raffle. This raffle will help support Foodshare. Tickets can be purchased for $10.00 or for $5.00 with the addition of 3 non-perishable food items. All food items and 100% of the ticket sales will go to Foodshare during this great time of need. We will be raffling off a piece of brewing equipment valued at over $600.00, a wine ingredient kit, and an assortment of other goodies. You can buy raffle tickets the day of the event or stop in the shop beforehand to get your tickets. Either way, you get three tickets for three chances to win and you don’t have to be present to win. The raffle will be held just as some of the brewers are finishing up their brew sessions at 2pm.
Just in case this event wasn't awesome enough, you are just 8 minutes from the ONYX Secret Stash Beer Bash event being held at Goodwin College from 4pm to 8pm. This event consists of over 20 Connecticut microbreweries that will each be offering a one of a kind beer that has been aged in an ONYX Secret Stash barrel. You will be able to taste and judge their offerings while enjoying food from local restaurants and food trucks all the while tapping your toes to the sounds made by local musicians.
