BBQ, Blues, and Long Trail Brewing Beer Dinner Featuring Big Jon Short
Thursday, September 28,2017 at 6:30 pm
What better way to kick off the upcoming weekend than with a BBQ, blues, and beer dinner. Chef Tony is stoked to fire up the smoker and local blues legend Big Jon Short will be laying down some blues to keep the good times rolling. We’ll also have Vermont’s own Long Trail Brewing Co. in house with some special brews to accompany the amazing music and food. The cost for the BBQ, beer and blues dinner is $39.95 per person which includes chips and salsa bar, loaded BBQ plate, beer sampling, dessert, and coffee. Tax and gratuity are not included. This special event is limited and likely to sell out quickly. Make your reservations by calling The Duck at 508-347-2321.
About the brewer: The first batch of Long Trail Ale® rolled off the line in 1989. Back then the brewery—known as the Mountain Brewers—was a modest brew house tucked into the basement of the Old Woolen Mill in Bridgewater Corners, with the goal to brew an affordable, American-made alternative to the pricey German and English exports that filled the shelves.
At the time, the craft brewing industry in America was on the rise and Vermont was better known for maple syrup than beer. In 1989, Long Trail Ale® hit the taps at local watering holes; blazing the trail for Vermont's craft brewing industry.
