Don’t miss the Peach Brew Fest on the Farm this Sunday at Lyman Orchards
It’s their inaugural Peach Brew Fest on the Farm, presented by Lyman Orchards and the CT Brewers Guild. There will be more than 15 Connecticut breweries participating, along with food trucks and live music. Some of the breweries will be brewing and showcasing beers made with Lyman Orchards peaches grown right at the farm.
General admission tickets will get you samples from all the breweries on-site, and we ask that everyone enjoys their brews responsibly
All proceeds generated from the festival go to the CT Brewers Guild, an organization by brewers and for brewers, to help further the goals of the Craft Beer movement in Connecticut, and Lyman Orchards who in its 280th year, is a family-favorite destination for Pick Your Own, our Farm market, championship, and beginner golf and much more!
