Cheers to you and the favorite beers (and ciders)!
The PNA Summer Beer Taste was a success for year 13! Ticket pre-sales were record-breaking, the weather was perfect, the brews were delicious (and many of them special for the event!), and the mood was jovial. We were tickled to see so many Hawaiian shirts and beachy outfits, adding to the festiveness of the afternoon. It was extra fun that brewers also got into it by bringing fun (and yummy!) tropical-flavored beers and decorating themselves and their stations.
This community effort raised an awesome $17,952! Huge thanks to all who came, the 32 brewers who donated their beers and ciders, and our sponsors The Barking Dog Alehouse, Prost!, The Yard Cafe, and The Park Public House!
The lucky winner of the “How many bottle caps?” game was Brian Schuster with a guess of 1837 caps– very close to the real number of 1848!
Now, to count down the days until Winter Beer Taste! (111.)
