Summer Fruit Brewfest & Beer Garden

July 23, 2022

Due to the extreme heat forecasted for today (95 degrees!), we have decided to cancel the Summer Fruit Brew Fest at Lyman Orchards for the health and safety of all.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, as we were all looking forward to this special event!

You are welcome to join us inside at 1741 Pub & Grill tomorrow for $5.00 local craft brews and $5.00 Lyman's hard apple cider, and great food!

Save the dates! We have a few fun events coming up that you might enjoy:

August 5, 12, 19 - Sunset Sunflower Maze Wine Tasting

September 2, 16 & 30 - Beer Maze Tasting in the Corn Maze

September 10 & 11 - Harvest Music Festival with Beer Garden

Lyman Orchards is brewing up a family-friendly Summer Fruit Brewfest on Saturday, July 23rd 12-4pm outside at The Apple Barrel Farm Market!

We'll have over ten Connecticut breweries pouring beer, live music from Evie Joy, great food from the Apple Barrel Farm Market Deli, along with a small fleet of local food trucks including Scatz Catering, Dope Fried, The Whey Station and Los Mariachis.

Specialty Brews will be available, made with yours truly - Lyman Orchards fresh-picked fruit!

Make a day of it with the kids -  pick-your-own fruit, indulge in decadent fruit-inspired treats from the Lyman Orchards award-winning bakery, and make sure you save some room for Lyman Orchards Creamery signature bakery ice cream sundaes!
