Beards & Brews-Made in Lowell

This year started off right with a wonderful event hosted by Made in Lowell, “The Ball” which I had the pleasure of attending and writing about. Check out the wonderful blog posts from back in January here.

They manage to always come up with these super fun events that involve our amazing community in Lowell but also bring in people from other places in Massachusetts. By incorporating in people that supporting local is what makes us stronger, it instills in each of us a strong sense of community and the potential for increased growth.

This time I get the chance about this fun event coming up in a few weeks that will mix our love of craft beer with the fun competitive side of us all. Included below is all the information you will need as well as a link to purchase tickets.  Hope to see all of you there!
