We're taking over New England Air Museum in Windsor Locks, CT; after hours, this event will feature specialty beers from several local craft breweries, all served up with savory bacon hors d'oeuvres amidst a sea of vintage aircraft.

Each brewery has been asked to bring a taproom-only beer and/or a rare limited-release option. We proudly support the attending brewers by purchasing their products at the festival. In addition, there are no booth fees for brewers on top of donating a portion of every ticket sold to the New England Air Museum.
