What happens when two brewery owners, a liquor store owner, a knitwear business owner, and a creative agency owner get together to plan a Brewfest? You end up with an awesome event that raises a shit-ton of money for a local nonprofit. That’s right, a shit-ton.
When my colleagues and I initially started planning this year’s Wellington Brewfest – our third event in 4 years – we had hopes of raising between $8,000 and $10,000 for the Wellington Main Street program. We knocked it out of the park! We are SO EXCITED to be giving back more than $14,000 to this wonderful Wellington nonprofit.
$14,000 will go a long way toward supporting both a downtown sign grant program and an Eagle Scout project at our local library, and we are extremely proud of that contribution and Wellington Brewfest, as a whole.
Of course, Wellington Brewfest wouldn’t be what it is without the team of ladies who run the show alongside me: Annie (Cantina Liquors), Tara (Old Colorado Brewing Company), Sarah (SarahB In Stitches), and Mary (Soul Squared Brewing Company).
Be sure to mark your calendars for June 4 for the 2022 Wellington Brewfest!
