About the Event
Bonfire Night 2022 is upon us and we cant be more excited!
This year we are blowing it up and going for bigger and better.
Help us to celebrate this British Tradition and enjoy the areas biggest fire. This year we are honored to run this as a fundraiser for The Spirit of Schuyler Scholarship Fund in honor of our fallen brewer & Brother – Corey Drake.
This year, as with past we will be walking the Guy Effigy to the bonfire in a flaming torchlit procession and we will be led by the amazing bagpipes of Ray Brewer, we will also be hosting a number of guest breweries and wineries under the pavilion. Torches available for purchase.
Our great friends at Dean Lane Catering will also be onsite offering some delicious eats to fill your bellies with and have learnt from last year to accommodate for the masses and guarantee the food will be amazing (Check out the bottom of the page for the menu!!).
The Variables will be providing the perfect music under the pavilion for you to enjoy while purchasing drinks from the amazing beverage vendors we will have onsite.
The Spirit of Schuyler will also be hosting a table and educating attendees on the great things they are doing as well as running a raffle with an amazing prize.
