Fall is just around the corner and it’s time to mark your calendar for autumn festivities! Join us on Friday, October 20, 2017 for our second annual “History & Hops.” Last year it was a sold out event so get your tickets early. This is an evening you won’t want to miss!

The Chatham Fish & Game Club will be transformed into a traditional beer garden featuring beer and wine representing countries around the world. Of course, food goes well with drink so there will be a tempting array of eatables to chose from and live music will keep it festive. Food, drink, music and good company – the perfect brew for a great time! Music will be provided by Chatham’s own Sal Arnuk, Mike McLaughlin and special guest Chris “Sarge” Tomaino.
