This Weekend: Beer Summit, Newport Wedding Showcase And Pats Playoffs

It’s that time of year again. The Beer Summit’s Winter Jubilee is upon us. Yes, when thousands of thirsty beer fans pile into the Castle At Park Plaza in Boston for music, food, fun and oh yeah beer. Hundreds of beers to be exact and the winter calls for each brewery to bring at least one style that is no less than %7 abv. This show isn’t for the light drinkers. We’ve shipped a bunch of barrels of our porter which weighs in right at 7 for everyone. Dark, roasty, malty, hoppy complex and everything a good porter should be, Gansett porter is getting some rave reviews. So if you haven’t had it yet, then make this your chance. And if you are attending, then make sure you follow us on Twitter (@Gansettbeer) to find out ways you can win prizes like Gansett Girl Calendars and more! It all starts tonight at 5:30-9pm and continues tomorrow 12:30-4p and 5:30 to 9pm. That’s 3 chances so don’t miss it. Click here for tickets and more info.

This Sunday La Bella Bride Magazine is hosting the Newport Wedding Showcase at the Hotel Viking which starts at 11 am. La Bella Bride assembles the best designers, coordinators, and other wedding professionals in our regional bridal showcase. A savvy bride can choose from a vendor at our Newport, RI wedding showcase. These events are a chance to get a glimpse of great design ideas, to meet photographers, musicians, florists, cake designers and other professionals, to view the newest bridal fashions in our runway shows, and to attend our salons and seminars to have intimate conversations with innovative professionals. Guys don’t worry. They will have a mens lounge complete with flat screen tv to watch the game and some Gansetts to enjoy! Click here for tickets and more info.

Let the excitement begin! Because it’s Friday and this is going to be one huge weekend. Why? The Patriots are in the playoffs and to start they are taking on the Jets at home in Foxboro. Gillette Stadium is going to be absolutely bananas on Sunday for the game. We can already hear the roar of the crowd and the smell of the grills from tailgating. You don’t even have to be a big football or sports fans to get roped into the excitement of this game. Especially the energy coming from the stadium. And if you can’t go to the game, then pop into your favorite sports bar and you’ll see what we are talking about. No matter where you watch it, make sure you enjoy a Narragansett beer. If you prefer the comforts of home, then get some friends over, order and pizza and make sure the fridge is stocked with plenty of cold Gansetts for them. You can’t root for a New England team without New England’s beer. What could better? Great sports action and Narragansett beer. Go Patriots!
