Museum hosts Brews for Bell fundraiser

 After a successful debut last year, the Brews for Bell fundraiser — an evening of pairing local craft beers with foods that complement them — returns for a second year on Friday, Nov. 17.

The event is hosted by the New Hampshire Telephone Museum.
“People really responded to this [last year], which was why we decided to do it again, and it’s probably going to be an annual thing,” said museum program coordinator Graham Gifford. “It brought in people who were big into beer but maybe had never seen our museum before and they’d go, ‘Wow, this is way cooler than I thought.’”
Gifford said as with last year’s event, the idea was to feature a line of beers from five different Granite State breweries that range from light to dark. This year’s participating breweries include Litherman’s Limited in Concord, Concord Craft Brewing, Swift Current Brewing Co. in Manchester, Great North Aleworks in Manchester and From the Barrel in Londonderry.
“We’re aiming to have everything from a pale ale to some sort of IPA to some sort of stout,” Gifford said.
The food is provided by Bill Meadows, owner of The Local restaurant in Warner. Options are likely going to include various kinds of cheeses and chocolates, according to Gifford.
“It will be a variety of sweet and savory things,” she said. “Last year we had everything from meatballs to small dark chocolate desserts that were paired with the stout that we had.”
Guests will receive their own “Brews for Bell” pint glass as well as five “taste tickets” good for one tasting of each beer available. Additional tickets can be purchased for more tastings at $1 each, according to Gifford. 
Milford-based singer-songwriter Justin Cohn, who performed at last year’s Brews for Bell event, is returning to provide a musical backdrop during the tastings.
A raffle basket to which several local businesses have contributed is also going to be available to all visitors. Prizes include two free passes to the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum in Warner, a gift certificate to MainStreet BookEnds, two free drink tickets to Schoodacs Coffee & Tea, two tickets to a performance of The Nutcracker at the Kearsarge Conservatory of the Performing Arts and more.
