The first annual “Crazy Brew Bash” will be held at Mount Southington on Saturday, Oct. 17. The event will be sponsored by the REACH Foundation.
Established in 2000, the non-profit’s motto is, “If in only one life, make a difference.” The foundation aims to “reach out” to children with physical, social, and financial needs.
For their newest fundraiser, the organization will partner with Crazy Bruce’s Liquors located on Farmington Ave. in Bristol, to offer unlimited beer samplings on Mount Southington.
For $25, guests can enjoy an open beer tasting from noon to 4 p.m., accompanied by live music, lawn game tournaments, and a variety of food truck vendors serving up their specialties.
For those who would like an extra hour to sample the more than 200 beers that will be available, VIP tickets are being offered for $35 and will permit access to the festival starting at 11 a.m.
All proceeds will directly benefit the REACH foundations efforts, including their “Shop with a Cop” program.
The winter season initiative targets families in need of financial assistance for holiday shopping.
“This is an excellent opportunity to benefit a great organization,” said Mount Southington General Manager Jay Dorgherty, “and we have the perfect venue for it.”
Ticket prices will increase by $5 if purchased at the door.
A “designated driver” ticket option will also be available for $15, which will allow for admission, games, and entertainment—but no beer sampling, of course.
All guests must be 21-years or older and present a valid photo ID for entry.
