So the time has come when I actually can post about the first event we actually attended as a brewery. It wasn’t the Great American Beer Festival, or Beervana or any other kind of craftbeer festival. It was the Autumnfest in Woonsocket, RI. To be honest, I couldn’t have asked for a better place to start. A festival that is a long Woonsocket tradition, and which we hope to be part of for the foreseeable future. Don’t get me wrong, someday we want to attend all those great beer festivals I mentioned above, but first and foremost we are a Woonsocket Brewery and this is where we want to make sure our roots grow strongest.
The Festival in itself was a fun time. Considering that the weather was a bit on the rough side most of the weekend, people still came out and enjoyed the live music in the beer tent. As for us, we met with people who were very welcoming to us and expressed their support. We were able to spread the word about the brewery, and most importantly we kicked every keg we had set aside for the event. The feedback we got was outstanding and I think it’s safe to say that there are a few new Coffee Milk Stout fans out there.
We look forwarding to seeing everyone again in the near future and ask that you stay posted for updates.
