The Connecticut Brewers Guild Diversity and Inclusion Committee hosted a fall beer pairing dinner and fundraiser at Viron Rondo Osteria in Cheshire on Oct. 26. Guests enjoyed a five-course meal prepared by Viron Rondo’s Chef Thomas Crawford, paired with beer selections from Kent Falls Brewing, Great Falls Brewing Company, Armada Brewing, Marlowe Artisanal Ales and Fox Farm Brewery. Spearheaded by Andrea Reyes, Co-leader, CT Brewers Guild Diversity & Inclusion Committee, the event featured speaker Nandhana ‘Nanee’ Sajeev, Justice-Involved Advocacy Coordinator, CT Alliance to End Sexual Violence. Proceeds from the event benefited the Connecticut Brewers Guild Diversity and Inclusion Committee, launched by the CT Chapter of the Pink Boots Society to combat harassment and encourage equity in the state’s craft brewing industry.
