Brewfest at the Beach takes place Friday at Ocean Beach in New London

Twice a year, when it's time for either the spring or fall Brewfest at the Beach, the New London Rotary fundraiser always taking place at Ocean Beach Park, I always want to preview it in a simple but powerful way.

To wit, simply list EVERY BEER AVAILABLE for tasting.

Unfortunately, we don't have that much space.

The event's Brew-Wizard Ed Cramer does an outstanding job of curating the beverages and organizing the breweries taking part, and Friday's rendition should be bigger and better than ever. Throw in, of course, wine, cider and even nonalcoholic drinks; hot dogs and chili; live music from Brewfest house band The Rhythm Method; the glorious surf 'n' sand setting — and it's just basically hard to find a better time.

Oh, yeah: proceeds from Brewfest are happily funneled into Camp Rotary, the organization's free summer camp for New London middle school students.

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.
