Autumn Gold Beer and Wine Tasting Tickets on Sale Friday September 1st!
Ellsworth – Friday evening of Autumn Gold weekend will bring many local wines, beers and ciders to Ellsworth’s Waterfront Park for the Chamber’s Autumn Gold Beer and Wine tasting event, proudly sponsored by Franklin Savings Bank. Advance tickets go on sale starting Friday September 1st for $20.00 and can be purchased in advance at the chamber. Tickets purchased at the door will be $30.00. Ticket prices will include a souvenir tasting glass. Designated Driver tickets can be purchased for $10. All ticket purchases require a legal ID, no purchase under the age of 21.
Last year the Chamber offered a small scale beer and wine tasting tent, on Saturday afternoon directly after the Chowderfest event. The response was great, but the event needed the space of the larger waterfront tent to grow, as well as a time that was more appropriate for an ‘over age 21’ event. “The Friday evening time frame is perfect for people getting off work. You can come down to our beautiful waterfront, taste some great local beers and wines, enjoy some entertainment and then head into town for dinner, or the film at The Grand.” Stated Director Gretchen Wilson.
Participating Beer and Wine vendors include Airline Brewery of Amherst and Ellsworth, 2 Feet Brewing of Bangor, Strong Brewing of Sedgwick, Atlantic Brewing of Bar Harbor, and Fogtown Brewing of Ellsworth ,providing beer. Winterport Winery and Penobscot Bay Brewing of Winterport will be providing wine, beer and cider, and Catherine Hill Winery of Cherryfield will be providing wine.
There will also be great entertainment including regional comic “Crazy Jake”. Food will be available for purchase on site. This will be the place to be Friday night of Autumn Gold weekend. Make sure you get your tickets before they run out! For more information on the Beer and Wine Tasting and other Autumn Gold Events visit the Chamber website at www.ellsworthchamber.org
