Claremont Craft Ales Celebrates Fourth Anniversary

I don’t know of any craft brewery that does a better job of showcasing its own beers at an annual anniversary celebration than Claremont Craft Ales.CCA 1

While most breweries have great fun-filled events and special new beer releases to commemorate such an occasion, CCA will offer more than 50 of its own brews on tap at its upcoming fourth anniversary festivities, including several brand new releases and barrel-aged beers, along with popular Claremont Craft Ales favorites.

This year’s anniversary event will take place at the brewery on Saturday, July 16. There will be two separate sessions from noon-4 p.m. and 5-9 p.m. Families bringing children are encouraged to attend the first session.

In addition, no fewer than three food trucks/vendors will be on site, while local Claremont band “Raul” will perform at the second session. A DJ will entertain during the first session. Games for kids, corn hole, a photo booth and other activities are also scheduled.

Limited-edition stainless steel insulated growlers will be available for purchase, along with other merchandise, including commemorative shirts and caps.

Of course, the beer is the main attraction. Last year’s event included 10 barrel-aged brews among the offerings.

Admission is $30 per person and includes 16 pours of beers and a souvenir glass. Children and designated drivers are admitted free. Tickets are available to purchase at the brewery or online at www.claremontcraftales.com. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Shoes That Fit in Claremont. Those who donate a new pair of socks at the door will receive an extra pour of beer.
