Another Beer Fest. @ Another Beer Co

We wanted to do a Grand Opening Party but thought this would be a better way to party!

We will be taking over our parking lot and inviting out all of our friends who we’ve collaborated with or soon to collaborate with. The breweries that will be slinging beers are:
Moody Ales | Steel & Oak Brewing Co. | Faculty Brewing | Callister Brewing Company | Sundown Beer | Mariner Brewing | Electric Bicycle Brewing Company | Luppolo Brewing Company and more!

For Food We’ll Have the amazing BIG DAY Barbeque and PERVERTED Ice Cream

For the non beer drinkers we’ll have The Bricker Cider Company and more.

This is a FREE event with tokens to be purchased.

There will be many more activities planned and music by our DJ Liar’s Radio

The Thirsty Chef V @ Market Square
Jul 27 @ 12:01 pm – 4:00 pm
The Thirsty Chef V @ Market Square

This event is really important to us because…well…we like to eat! Proceeds from The Thirsty Chef go to the Island Chefs Collaborative (aka, the ICC). This amazing group raises funds to support small scale island farmers through micro-loan programs. Helping them grow more food and connect with local merchants.
With this being a bit of a milestone for us (our 5th year anniversary!) we are hoping to shatter our previous contribution to this effort.

Graze on amazing tapas prepared and served by some of the city’s best chefs and sip on beers from the over 20 breweries that will be on site.

Tickets $30.00 each and includes entry, food, entertainment and souvenir tasting glass.
Beer tickets sold on site day of the event.

More details will be coming as we firm things up but ticket demand for this year’s event has been so strong already, we are releasing tickets now. Available at The Drake Eatery or online at eventbrite (see link below).
