What's this all about?

Please join us Saturday, September 30th, 2017 at the Ballpark at Harbor Yard for the 6th annual Harbor Brew Fest. The event will tap off with a limited attendance Brewer's Special from 12pm – 1pm and General Admission will begin at 1pm and will pour until 5pm. Join us for an unforgettable day of beer tasting, a beer tasting glass, great music from talented local bands, delicious food from CT’s favorite food trucks and a fun-filled day to enjoy with friends.  Brewer's Special will also grant Exclusive Access to the Brewer's Beer Garden where limited release and hard to find beers will be served for tasting.

Rules are made to be broken....

Just not here!

No one under 21 will be permitted inside the stadium. Sorry, no kids (even newborns). Event staff will check everyone’s IDs before walking through the front gate. Unfortunately no four-legged animals will be permitted. No outside glassware.  No worries, ours are super cool and with each ticket purchase you receive a free tasting glass!

drink beer.....But Please be responsible!

With an emphasis on beer appreciation, Harbor Brew Fest is a place to discover and taste a variety of different beers. We do not promote over-consumption so pace yourself. Anyone found to be intoxicated will be removed from the premises.

Before you arrive at the festival, arrange for a safe ride home! Discounted Designated Driver tickets ($20 per ticket) are available for anyone who wants to “take one for the team” and attend without sampling the beers. Can’t find a designated driver? The Metro North train station and the Port Jeff ferry are a 2 minute stroll away. Additionally, there will be taxicabs available.


Remember that guy that ran onto the field in the 5th inning?  Well, that guy got arrested.  You will not! Harbor Brew Fest takes place directly on a professional baseball field.  The beautiful Ballpark at Harbor Yard is home to the Bridgeport Bluefish and is a gracious host for our event.  Please respect the grounds as we would like to be invited back!  The ballpark is located on Long Island Sound with close access to I-95, the Metro North Train Station, and the Port Jefferson Ferry.  For additional information, please visit their website at bridgeportbluefish.com.

So you are telling me that I drink beer and kids benefit from it??  

All of the proceeds from this event will be donated to Harbor Light Foundation, Inc.  Harbor Light is a Connecticut-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing safe and beneficial programming for children with autism.

Music makes me hoppy.......

To all of us at the Harbor Brew Fest, good music goes hand in hand with good beer. What better way to enjoy a delicious beverage than with some great tunes? So start tapping that foot and snapping those fingers because all of our bands bring a feel good vibe to even the most seasoned music lovers.
