By August 24, 2023Connecticut, Top News

The Change in the Air Foundation hosted a beer garden at the Seeing Sounds Festival, founded by New Haven-based artist Trey Moore, at Edgewood Skate Park in New Haven on July 1. The annual event, a BIPOC-centered, multiday showcase, brings together musicians, artists, food and culture. Jamal Robinson, Director of Sales and Marketing, New England Brewing Co. and President, Change in the Air Foundation, and volunteers poured local craft beer from Alvarium Beer Co. and New England Brewing Co. in a special festival beer garden. Guests also enjoyed food from The Portabello Latin Food, Beyond the Salt Food Truck, Khemi’s Vegan Cuisine and Many Donuts while listening to live music from the festival’s 27 featured artists on two stages. “Our mission is to diversify the beer industry through fundraising for the CT Brewers Guild African American Brewers Scholarship and helping to create new diverse spaces for people of color to experience craft beer,” Robinson said. “We partnered with Seeing Sounds to provide a free beer garden as a great way to bring craft beer into the black and brown community, while promoting our mission and festival.” The Change in the Air Foundation will host its annual Change in the Air Festival, a brew fest and cultural fair celebrating diversity in the craft beer industry, at Bear’s Smokehouse BBQ in New Haven on Oct. 14.
