It's a celebration of all drinks local at Hangar 9 tonight.
All of Hangar's taps will feature locally-brewed beer, and local musicians will serenade the crowd. It's all part of Rock the Pint, a fundraiser for Food Works' Farm to Fork programs.
The event runs from 4 to 10 p.m. tonight.
Beers on tap include two experimental hard ciders from Owl Creek Vineyard; a collaborative beer between Scratch Brewing Co. and Abbey Ridge Brewery (a portion of proceeds from this beer go toward Abbey Ridge employees displaced by a February fire); an anniversary commemorative imperial stout from Alton's Old Bakery Brewing; and a grisette from White Rooster Farmhouse Brewery; which opened this past weekend in Sparta.
All told, there will be 11 local brews on tap.
Hey Honey will perform live music at 6 p.m., and The Jenny Johnson Band will headline.
Funds raised go toward farmer training, food systems development and education. For more information about Food Works, visit fwsoil.org.
