Bayfront Maritime Center Hosts its Fifth Annual Ales for Sails by Tracy Geibel

Friday, Feb. 10

Sometimes you drink to celebrate. Sometimes you drink to forget. But on Friday, Feb. 10, the Bayfront Maritime Center (BMC) invites you to drink for a cause.

Those who attend the BMC’s fifth annual Ales for Sails fundraiser – a consistently sold-out event that features a local craft beer tasting – are supporting the center’s programs.

Guests are welcome to taste-test craft beer from nine spotlighted local breweries – Voodoo, Lavery Brewing, Blue Canoe, Erie Brewing, Erie Ale Works, Timber Creek, The Brewerie, Millcreek Brewing Company, and Five & 20 Spirits and Brewing – before casting a vote for their favorite one.

Throughout the evening, guests can try their luck by entering a basket raffle, featuring baskets from Erie businesses and artists. But even if you don’t take home a basket, everyone can take home a photo, as there will be a photo booth to capture the memories that you might not otherwise remember if you taste-test too much beer.

Food will be provided by Stephany Catering, and music will be covered by Millennium Sound DJs.

Tickets are pre-sale only and available online through Eventbrite. Attendees must be 21 or older. – Tracy Geibel
