Brewfest at the Beach happens Friday at Ocean Beach
Ed Cramer over at the New London Rotary wanted me to let y'all know he was taking a nap and forgot to arrange beers for Friday's Brewfest at the Beach. There's only going to be two quarts of Colt .45 and a mini-keg of Little King's Cream Ale.
Ed Cramer would never do such a thing. In fact, twice each year, Cramer somehow manages to outdo himself in terms of supplying Brewfest at the Beach with a stunning array of beers — including many from our local breweries — in a variety of styles. Probably the only countries not providing beers are the four countries that don't have beer.
And there's ever so much more: the Brewfest house band, Rhythm Method, is back; a summery, shoreline menu of hotdogs, chili and pizza will be on hand; and at the heart of all this greatness is that proceeds go to Camp Rotary, where so many New London middle school kids' lives have been enriched over the years.
Brewfest at the Beach, 6-9 p.m. Friday, Ocean Beach Park, 98 Neptune Ave., New London; ages 21 and over; $25 advance, $30 gate; newlondonrotary.org.
