Autumn Beer Tasting Event on November 22
The Varnum Continentals' 5th Annual Autumn Beer Tasting will take place on Saturday, November 22, 2014, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at the Varnum Memorial Armory. This event will feature a wide range of artisan beers (from pilsners to porters) from American and international craft brewers as well as light appetizers.
Now in its 5th year, the Beer Tasting has become one of our most popular events, and it just keeps getting bigger and better. Bring a friend … bring a neighbor … enjoy the brews, tour the Armory's world-class collection of military memorabilia and armaments. Proceeds benefit our efforts to preserve history, promote patriotism, and provide education to young people and adults alike.
Tickets will be available at the October and November meetings and on-line. Advance tickets purchased online (www.varnumcontinentals.org/beer) or at the meeting are $20 per person. Tickets sold at the door on event night are $25 per person.
