UNCASVILLE, Conn. (WTNH)-- Looking for something to do this weekend? How about tasting beers from across the country at Mohegan Sun's Brewfest?
Back by popular demand. Last year's Brewfest went so well at Mohegan Sun, that's why it's back again this year.
By the look of all the cases and you know something big is brewing in the Uncas Ballroom at Mohegan Sun.
Forty brewers and other vendors are rolling in and will be serving up more than a hundred different types of beer.
"Whether you like light beer, pumpkin ales, or hard core lager, it's a lot of variety," said Bobby Soper, Pres. and CEO Mohegan Sun.
On tap and bottled beers. Folks get a souvenir of pilsner glasses to take part in the tasting.
This certainly may be a beer lovers paradise. Cottrell folks know that from Pawcatuck right here in CT, Sam Adams from Boston, and Third Shift from Colorado.
At this Brewfrest, you can taste but you can't buy.
But it's not just beer, some of Mohegan Sun's restaurants will be serving up food at the fest and if you're sweet on dancing, Sugar and other popular bands will take the stage.
Home brewers will also get a chance to learn more about their craft. The first tasting is Friday night but the Brewfest goes until a BrewBrunch on Sunday.
"Starts at 11 am and every food item is made from beer. It doesn't matter what it is French toast, the risotto, and of course we have a great wine and beer selection for the brunch," said Soper.
