Event Description

Well-curated. Intimate. No lines. 100% for charity. 

The 2nd CT Hops for Hope beer festival will be held Saturday, September 2nd at Falcon Field in New Britain. 100% of the proceeds benefit the Smith-Magenis Research Foundation. In 2015, we were able to donate over $31,000 for the Foundation, which made a huge difference to this small, all-volunteer foundation. Let's give those with SMS and their families hope for a better and brighter future.

This is not a HUGE, impenetrable beer festival. We are keeping it smaller and more intimate so attendees can spend some time chatting with the brewers and hanging with their fellow craft beer enthusiasts. And because the fest is not huge, we are able to offer some highly sought after craft beers. Thank you to our generous breweries!
