Friends of Weir Farm Announces ‘Beer with Weir’ at Nod Hill Brewery
The Friends of Weir Farm NHP and Nod Hill Brewery invite the public to celebrate the release of a limited edition, small craft “Friends of Weir Farm India Pale Ale” on June 12, from noon to 4 pm, in the Nod Hill Brewery Biergarten.
The afternoon will offer informal fun, including family-friendly activities to create your own Junior
Ranger hat and ‘Take Part in Art’ using free art supplies to borrow and create your very own work of art.
The Friends of Weir Farm will be there to answer your questions about Weir Farm National Historical
Park and help you plan your visit.
Be one of the first to taste this colorful IPA created to honor our treasured local National Park for Art.
The can will feature a custom label by local artist Bobbi Eike Mullen showing a colorful image of Julian
Alden Weir painting the historic Weir Farm landscape, which is now your local National Park for Art.
Bobbi will be there to discuss her painting and even autograph your beer can as a souvenir!
The event is free and open to the public, and will be held rain or shine, so bring your family and friends
no registration required. Food for purchase will be provided by On the Fly. Lively blue grass music will
be provided by On the Trail. It is sure to be a fun event, raising visibility in our local communities for
both the Friends of Weir Farm NHP and the Park!
Therese Servas, Member of Board of Directors of the Friends of Weir Farm, commented, “We are
excited to collaborate with Nod Hill Brewery to raise public awareness of Connecticut’s jewel within the
the National Park Service” She continued, “We hope visitors will make time to visit the free park, just 2
miles, or about 5 minutes, away from the Biergarten, to enjoy it’s trails and landscapes, experience the
new Visitor Center, and the enjoy the new outdoor art exhibit of life-sized Art Bears featuring
contemporary artists’ paintings of the park.”
The Friends are grateful to Nod Hill Brewery for funding the production and distribution of the Friends of
Weir India Pale Ale, and to the label artist Bobbi Eike Mullen, who has generously given the Friends
permission to use the image of her unique artwork which highlights several scenes in the park.
Quote from David Kaye, Founding Partner and General Manager, “We are proud to be a friend and
neighbor to Weir Farm National Historical Park. This unique New England style IPA was brewedto celebrate our appreciation of the park and our partnership with the Friends of Weir Farm. We think it's the perfect beer to enjoy after exploring the art, landscape and trails of Weir Farm, which we are lucky to have just up the road from our brewery."
