Come join us for a fun and informal beer class with Max Finnance of Brooklyn’s Sixpoint Brewing on Monday, June 27, at 7 PM! After the talk, Hamden’s own Steve Rodgers will play an acoustic set. Definitely not to be missed. Admission is $7 at the door.
Max will discuss the basics of beer; ingredients, brewing processes, and the differences between the many different styles of beer available today. And yes…. There will be samples! We will also be running specials of some tasty Sixpoint brews at the cafe, so come thirsty!
Steve Rodgers and his brother Jon formed the core of the critically acclaimed local band Mighty Purple. The band released 9 albums in their 15 year career and toured relentlessly; playing for their adoring fans all over the United States. Steve’s stellar songwriting and creative vision propelled the sound of Mighty Purple, as they do his current project, Arms and Voices.
Since 2003, Steve has spent endless hours as the Founder and Director of Hamden music venues The Space and The Outer Space; the latter being recognized as having one of the area’s best selections of craft beer. Steve is one of the hardest working guys in showbiz, and a proper beer nerd to boot. We’re mighty well pleased to have him join us for this event.
