Beer tour organizers to hold meet and greet at Firefly Hollow Aug. 21

In support of the Kickstarter campaign for its  brand new company, Connecticut Beer Tours will be hosting a meet and greet session at Firefly Hollow Brewing in Bristol on Sunday, Aug. 21 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Kickstarter in essence allows people to buy pledges and in return get rewards such as apparel, personalized beer or spirit tours, or even a sponsored screen-printed seats. This event will help Connecticut Beer Tours purchase a 15-passenger vehicle to support their vision to bring tourism back to Connecticut and support the booming craft beer and spirit market.

Finger sandwiches will be provided. Beer and raffles will be available for additional purchase. Tickets are $10 if purchased in advance online, and $15 at the door. Space is limited, so be sure to purchase ahead of time. Tickets are available for purchase online at http://ctbeertours.com/events under the Firefly event post.

“The concept is simple: for an all-inclusive price we pick you up and take you to a handful of breweries or distillers where you can tour the facility and taste a variety of samples. We then feed you, hydrate you, and drop you back off safe and sound,” said Michelle, a co-owner of CT Beer Tours in a press release.

The release said the owners are local beer lovers who have attended many beer tours around the world. Their vision to start a beer tour company was sparked by the rapid growth of local breweries. For more information about their Kickstarter campaign visit http://bit.ly/ctbeertours
