Autumn is one of the best seasons for beer, and beer-related events. Although there is a chill in the air, it’s still great weather for spending time in the outdoors. The New Canaan Nature Center will be hosting the Beer, Bites, and Wine Harvest Festival on Saturday, October 4. The outdoor sanctuary is over 40 acres, with plenty of gardens and hiking trails. The harvest festival is from 7PM-10PM; I am thinking it would be a good idea to arrive early to get a hike in before the festivities begin. Connecticut breweries Half Full and Two Roads will be the main beer pourers, while a variety of other breweries, bottle shops, and more will be bringing in brews as well.
The Jazzholes will be providing music to go along with the libations. Tickets are $65 in advance, and $80 at the door, so it’s recommended to pick them up ahead of time. You can get them online here. Tickets include beer, wine, food, and all the entertainment and admission into the nature center.
