Event description
Picnic-style craft blind beer tasting in the park—four styles from local breweries. All proceeds go to charity.

About this event

Join us for a picnic-style craft beer tasting in the park. You will vote on your favorites for each style without knowing who brewed them—until the end. This blind taste test format removes any preconceptions or biases on who makes the best IPA or other styles. The beer will speak for itself, brewers will earn prestige and we will all be enlightened.
