This is a brand new event for NBMAA. A great title for their Winter Beer and Blues Festival.
What they have to say on their website:
Hartford Distributers and the Museum have been hard at work lining up the finest local craft beer vendors for the first ever Craft Sippin' in New Britain. Approximately 15 beer vendors will be joined by some of our favorite local restaurants for a night of blues, brews, and activities.
Participating restaurants include East Side Restaurant, Sliders Grill & Bar, Nora Cupcake, and Jordan Caterers. Beer tastings include samples from Back East, Cambridge House, Thomas Hooker, Charter Oak, Long Trail, Dogfish Head, Founder's, Arch, and Sliders Grill & Bar’s very own Flippin Bird Ale.
Don’t stop at food and drink, join others in creating your own drink coasters. Live blues will be performed throughout the night by Bob Orsi & Joel Blumert as you sip those blues away!
Tickets are $40 at the door or $35 in advance (non-members).
They will have food samples, but not a lot of food, so I suggest eating a bit before you come. Don't want to drink all that beer on an empty stomach ;)
