As part of our mission to celebrate locally produced food and drink, Slow Food Shoreline is excited to announce our first Slow Food's Toast to Connecticut – Wine and Beer Tour!
Join us Saturday June 1st, as we visit some of our favorite local producers – Stonington Vineyards, Cottrell Brewing Company, and Two Roads Brewery. Stonington is celebrating its 25th year, and was one of the first modern wineries in the state. Cottrell is the oldest continually brewed and bottled beer in Connecticut. Two Roads is the newest member of this artisanal community, resurrecting a 100 year old factory to produce delicious craft beers.
Between wine and beer tours and tastings, we'll enjoy a lobster lunch at a classic Connecticut seafood shack, Abbott's Lobster in the Rough. (Chicken is also served)
The bus will be leaving at 9am from the Stratford Park & Ride(I-95 @ Route 113) Exit 30. We'll also pickup and dropoff at the Stratford train station for those traveling via Metro North. Pickup time will be at 8:50 am.
We’ll return to the same locations at 6pm. Cost for the day is $95, which includes all wine and beer tastings, winery and brewery tours, lunch, charter bus transportation, additional food pairings, snacks, and prizes. Proceeds support Slow Food Shoreline’s cooking education programs.
Notes: All attendees must be 21 or older, and we’ll check ID’s at registration. Please drink responsibly and make appropriate transportation arrangements. Please make sure your contact information is accurate in case we need to contact you prior to the event. Participants are encouraged to buy wine and beer to take home. There is plenty of space on the bus to store purchases. Please note that Cottrell Brewing is cash only. We hope you can join us!
