The second annual Sun BrewFest kicks off at Mohegan Sun with two separate tasting sessions featuring more than 100 varieties of Craft and Microbrews to Imports & Domestics and limited editions. Some of the beers on tap will include Goose Island, Newcastle, Dogfish Head, Long Trail, Tenth & Blake’s Batch 19 and more.
Samples will be available for all guests during each tasting session, where they will receive a souvenir mini-pilsner glass to be used as their tasting glass for 2 ounce pours from the various breweries. Food tickets will also be sold for $1.00 each, allowing guests to purchase food items from a variety of their favorite Mohegan Sun restaurants.
Live entertainment will energize each session with bands beginning at 7:00pm each night. Between sets, home brew demonstrations will take place on the stage. Free interactive games such as foosball, ping-pong, and air hockey will also be available for guests to play throughout each session.
New to this year is a BrewBrunch on Sunday morning sponsored by Goose Island. There, guests can enjoy an all-inclusive food and beverage experience featuring an open bar of Goose Island and Shock Top varieties as well as sparkling wines and creative Bloody Mary recipes from Absolut. Brunch food items will be available for all to enjoy including Drunken Beef Goulash, Beer & Cheese Risotto, Raspberry Wheat French Toast and more. Among the dessert offerings will be seasonal Shock Top ice creams created by the Mohegan Sun Pastry department and made with Shock Top’s Honey Apple and Pumpkin Wheat beer varieties.
Tickets are $25.00 for each tasting, $75.00 for the BrewBrunch and are on sale beginning today at the Mohegan Sun Box Office and Ticketmaster. A portion of all tickets sales from each session and the BrewBrunch will go towards a to-be-determined charity. Tickets will be required for entry to all events. Bracelets will be required for re-entry and all guests in attendance must be 21+.
