CT Cask Fest Raises $1,200 for Tap Cancer Out

On Sunday, May 31, Craft260, a popular beer bar and bistro in Fairfield, CT, raised $1,200 to help benefit Tap Cancer Out and the organization’s efforts to help end cancer. The Connecticut Cask Fest, which was held under a tent in the restaurant’s parking lot, featured 18 local Connecticut breweries that generously donated several casks of their unique brews for attendees to taste. This is the first time Craft260 hosted an event to support Tap Cancer Out.

Beer aficionados had the opportunity to try some unique local suds whose brewing process included every ingredient imaginable including, but not confirmed, the kitchen sink. Live music was provided by the very talented Aplaca Gnomes that treated beer fanatics with covers ranging from Dave Mathews Band to Sublime to The Who and even snuck in a little Lorde into the mix.

“We’re a nonprofit organization with roots in a very niche sport,” said Tap Cancer Out founder Jon Thomas. “Events like these are a fantastic way that supporters like [Craft 260 co-founder] Tomer, who may not compete in BJJ, can still support our cause.”

Overall, the event was a huge success for all involved. Look out for other non-Jiu-Jitsu related events hosted by TCO in the future.
