The Max Hospitality Hoptoberfest at Rosedale Farms & Vineyards on Oct. 9 brought together brands and beer fans for a fall day of tasting and sampling. The seventh annual event showcased local and national beer, live music by BooYah! and beer fest-inspired eats created by Hunter Morton and Steve Michalewicz of Max Catering & Events. Brescome Barton portfolio brews Boulevard Brewing Co., Brewery Ommegang and Still Hill Brewery were among showcased tastes. A portion of each ticket sold benefited the Max Cares Foundation, whose mission is to provide financial assistance to nonprofit educational and charitable organizations in the Greater Hartford community.
