Bayfront Maritime Center Hosts its Fifth Annual Ales for Sails
The Bayfront Maritime Center invites you to drink for a cause.
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
