Four small businesses are coming together this Sunday, May 20, for a special event along Hartford’s Riverfront Recapture area to celebrate a unique marriage of bikes, beer and cheese.
The family friendly casual ride will lead cyclists of all experience levels on a six mile loop. More experienced riders will have an opportunity to repeat the loop or ride along some of the wooded trails further north of Riverside Park to extend their ride.
Once the ride is finished, participants will be invited to make a short drive to the Thomas Hooker Brewing Co. in Bloomfield, where they will be offered brewery tours and the chance to sample handcrafted beer made locally at the facility.
The Whey Station, a mobile food truck owned and operated by a local husband and wife team, will be on hand serving gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and “truck made” soups.
This Sunday also marks the beginning of legal throughout the state. Thanks to new legislation this month those participating in this event will be able to buy craft beer from the brewery and take it home in containers called growlers.
This event will mark the end of American Craft Beer Week and comes just after National Ride Your Bike to Work Week. With beautiful weather in the forecast, participants should be in for a great time. More information is available at the CT Beer Trail website.
