The Connecticut Brewers Guild hosted its collaborative, 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 June 18. Beer from more than 25 local craft breweries was on tap throughout the outdoor festival, with a focus on Black- and Brown-owned producers, along with food from a variety of local businesses, including Jazzy’s Soul Kitchen, Madeline’s Empanaderia, The Drunk Alpaca, Je T’aime Cupcakes and Ovelle Coffee. Guests enjoyed live performances by Timmy Maia, DJ Rawles, Herman Ham, DJ 4EIGN, Top Notch Band and Kaeli Roselle. Local artists also displayed their works. The event benefited the CT Brewers Guild African American Brewing Scholarship, which funds scholarships for Black and Brown students in Sacred Heart University’s Brewing Science Certificate program.
