Why you ask? Well, it’s our official launch party at The Copper Mine Pub in North Arlington. Jersey themed and some of our favorite breweries from around the Mid Atlantic region will be featured on a lovely Saturday afternoon-early evening in March. We’re going to giveaways, food vendors, homebrewers and a ton of surprises. More details will follow but I want to allow enough time for you to get a babysitter and make plans early enough. Proceeds will be donated to the Community FoodBank of NJ and we will be accepting food donations for the FoodBank as well. It’s going to be a worthy-beer-centric-Jersey-riffic event NOT to be missed. Please bring in food donations (at least 2 canned and nonperishable items) in order to receive a healthy sample of the Bolero Snort (homebrewer) Manolette’s Black Magic, a Black IPA brewed just for the party. We are also going to be runnings raffles to win other prizes.
Some of the breweries involved are as follows and taps are listed if it’s 100% confirmed. Remember, it’s almost spring and still winter so lots of variety on tap.
