Jenk’s CT Beer Fest Admission
Admission to our CT beer fest includes a commemorative beer tasting glass and grants access to sample all the craft brews offered. Our full-scale beerfest will give you the chance to speak with brewery’s representatives and find out what makes their craft beer so unique. The Connecticut Beerfest will showcase the diverse beers that make craft brewing one of the fastest-growing segments of the beer, wine and spirits industry.
Simply put, The Connecticut BeerFest is the best place in Connecticut for a beer aficionado to sample hundreds of microbrews and craft beers on tap. The two Connecticut Beerfest tasting sessions offer attendees the opportunity to tour America’s brewing landscape, one ounce at a time! And we are not forgetting about you wine and spirt lovers. In addition to the microbrewers and craft beers, there will be a section of ciders, wines and spirts. And, what pairs better with beer? Wings of course! The “Hot Legs” Wing Competition is the perfect complement to the best beer festival in New England. Come down to sample the adult beverages and stay to judge Connecticut’s best Wings! Best of all, a portion of proceeds from the CT beer fest will be donated to Autism Families CONNECTicut, a non-profit organization that provides recreational and social activities for families affected by autism.
So, come, relax, enjoy, learn, taste beers and help support families in the Connecticut community.
