Tapping into Twain Beer Festival | September 22 | 5:30 – 9:30 pm

Spend an evening celebrating one of Mark Twain’s favorite beverages (and we’ve got his sales receipts to prove it)!

Household bills reveal that merchants frequently delivered English ale, lager, pilsner, and bock beers to Twain’s home on Farmington Avenue.  Cajoling a friend to visit his home, the author wrote:  “There will be silence, & rest, & beer for the weary.”

Tapping Twain Beer Festival And scrumptious food from local restaurants to keep you full and happy.

This is the event one press reviewer called “absolutely, positively, without any doubt whatever, one of the best charitable events Hartford has beheld in quite some time.” It has routinely drawn more than 350 guests.

The event features more than twenty regional breweries, micro-breweries, and home brewers, plus more than a dozen local restaurants and live music. Prices include all food, beverages, and a collectible pint glass.

Bands include Hartford’s own 41 Prospect, which plays a mix of rock and alternative styles, including covers and original songs, and The Rude Mechanicals, whose members come from a wide mix of musical backgrounds ranging from classical piano to punk — they call their sound “Eclectic Rock.”
