ABC Anniversary Party

Saturday, Aug 16
ABC's Sweet 16 Anniversary Party! Be there!

This year ABC celebrates our 17th anniversary with a party in our parking lot. We will be tapping our annual Anniversary Ale as well as a few other seasonal specialties in the WILLIAMS TRAVELING BEER TRUCK featuring brews from Sierra Nevada and Harpoon! The date is Saturday, August 16th from Noon to 6. We will be outside grilling burgers, hot dogs, and kielbasa and listening to music from the Tom Filiault Band.

As an added bonus, we will be doing the final judging of beers from our 3rd Annual Homebrew Competition starting at 1 PM and picking a winner who will then be able to brew a batch of their beer here at ABC later in the year.

Mark the date on your calendar and hope to see you here!

Holmes is Director of Jazz and African-American Music Studies at UMASS.
