Ale-tasters unite at Connecticut’s premier beer challenge!
It’s back! Beer you can’t find anywhere else. Join us for the 5th Annual Noah Webster Real Ale Harvest Festival brought to you by the museum and the Harvest family of stores.
21+ breweries create a unique cask of Real Ale good for this one day only and there is a catch. Their brew must include an ingredient from Noah Webster’s 18th-century garden or pantry list.
Certified beer judges and celebrity judges choose the Cask Champion (2-5 p.m. session).
YOU choose the Taster’s Choice Award winner. Your votes will be counted by the official Real Ale Fest accounting team of Clark Hirth CPAs using their weighting system designed just for the event.
Live music at both sessions by Steal Your Funk! Food will be available for purchase.
You will take home a commemorative Real Ale tasting glass and program with full details on each cask entered into the challenge.
