Nestled in the serene meadow of the Sharon valley on a beautiful July sun-soaked afternoon echoes of music, laughter, snap, crackle and pops of ice cold cans and bottles tops will be heard from the hills of Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts. The Sharon Package Store proudly presents the second annual Hops in the Valley Beer Festival July 15th, 2018 located on Veterans Field (Sharon Station Rd. Sharon, CT) from 1-4pm. It is an exclusively hip and hoppy event for the craft beer following genre.
2017 Beer Fest Success
The first annual Hops in the Valley Craft Beer Festival was a tremendous success due to all who willingly volunteered their time, energy and outgoing support in raising money for The Sharon American Legion post 126. Breweries, brewers, distributors, reps, sales people, delivery drivers, vendors, legionnaires, customers, Sharon Package Store staff, Sharon Town Hall, Sharon Valley Tavern, Robin Hood Radio, Salisbury Winter Sports Association, Sunday in the Country, Sharon Fire Dept., Sharon Parks and Rec., Birch Lane Ice, Sharon Audubon, friends and family all stepped up for a special local charity. The appreciation is real. Without their time and energy the fest wouldn't have been such a success. Thanks to everyone involved. Please stay tuned for next year...
About the Charity
100% of the proceeds were donated to the historic Sharon American Legion Post 126 The American Legion Organization is the nations largest veterans service committed to mentoring and sponsoring youth programs in communities, advocating patriotism and honor not to mention the continued devotion to fellow service members and veterans. in early 2017, the Herbert Klebes Sharon American Legion post 126 asked for help. Our help. A while back, their hall (15 New Street, Sharon, CT) was in dire need of roof repair. In desperation to pass certain regulations they had it repaired but have yet raised enough funds to pay for the labor of the job. For being such a helpful organization to the towns schools, vet’s and members, they deserved something big and something credible. A beer festival. The first ever craft-brew festival in Sharon. With a tremendous amount of outpouring support from volunteers, we not only helped benefit the Legion but also developed a more educated palate for American craft beers in the town of Sharon and surrounding towns and states.
