Oktoberfest and Chowder Cook-Off

Posted on 09.06.08 7:54PM under Events

It seems like just a few weeks ago that I participated in the New London Rotary Club’s fundraiser, Springfest at the Beach, at Ocean Beach in New London, CT. It was a warm wet evening, with rain pounding all night. But that didn’t stop the crowds from coming in. It was a lot of fun, among the most beer-related fun I’ve had.

Coming up soon is the twin event for Springfest, it’s Oktoberfest. Springfest had a chili cookoff, but Oktoberfest has a chowder cookoff. Either way, there is table after table of beer from across the brewery spectrum, from energy beer to Dogfish Head to Orange Creme FMB to local brews. It’s a great event, and I’m really looking forward to this upcoming fest.

It will be on October 3rd from 6-9 PM at Ocean Beach in New London, CT. If you’re in the area, you really should stop by!
