Does anyone not like beer? If you're reading this, you're probably OK with it. The New Canaan Nature Center is hosting its first annual Harvest Festival in an overwhelmingly fantastic P.R. move for any nature center. Craft beers that will be represented are Charter Oak Brewing Company, Berkshire Brewing Company, Palm Breweries, Harpoon and Thomas Hooker, to name a few. Local restaurants like the Roger Sherman Inn will provide charcuterie, and Deep River Snacks will bring their gourmet chips that go just great with a frosty beer. There are two sessions, one in the afternoon and one in the evening, and music will be provided by the Fry Daddys and Otis & the Hurricanes respectively.
New Canaan Nature Center, 144 Oenoke Ridge, New Canaan. Sat., Sept. 29, 3-6 p.m. & 7-10 p.m. $50 advance, $5 at the door. (203) 966-9577, newcanaannature.org.
