BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- The Third Annual BEER CONN festival will return to the Western Bank Arena in Bridgeport on Saturday, Dec. 10.
The festival will showcase more than 50 local, national and international breweries; it will offer beer enthusiasts a pay-one-price opportunity to spend the afternoon or evening trying some new beers from their favorite local breweries, as well as beers from across the country and around the globe.
The event will offer two sessions: 12:30 to 4 p.m. or 5:30 to 9 p.m.
"Each year the event has grown in popularity and each year we have received great feedback from the attendees," said Andy Calimano, owner of Starfish Junction Productions, the event's host. "Connecticut beer lovers should ready themselves for another great event this year. We can't wait to see them all again."
This event will help raise awareness and funds for Kids Need More, (Motivational Recovery Environments, Inc.), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It is one of the only camps of its kind to serve child cancer patients and siblings. Visit www.KidsNeedMore.org to learn more about the organization.
