British Beer Company Westford Turns 1!
Get ready to celebrate! The British Beer Company Westford is celebrating their one year anniversary! Here's the press release I got from the Director of Marketing at the BBC:
What: One Year Anniversary Weekend Celebration
Where: Westford British Beer Company
When: August 12-13th
Who: The Silvertones with Ricky King Russell and Danny Banks (Saturday)
How: With a Wachusett Brewing Tap Takeover (Friday)
It’s been a brilliant first year for the British Beer Company in Westford, MA. The BBC would like to thank all their customers for their devotion and to the community as a whole for their support. The BBC was awarded Restaurant of the Year in Middlesex County via the Chamber of Commerce. They also received the following awards from WickedLocal.com: Best Bar, Best Lunch Venue, Best Dinner Venue, and a Silver Award for the Regions Best Bar. Very humbling… So how about a celebration with some free BBQ! On Saturday August 13th the BBC is going to fire up a grill out by their spacious patio and offer up free vittles while the Silvertones featuring Ricky “King” Russell and Danny Banks bang out the blues. The Berkshire Brewing Company will also be out on the patio offering samples from their diverse portfolio of beers. Later that night the Pablo Palooza Band performs.
Kicking off the weekend on Friday the BBC teams up with Wachusett Brewing Co. for a big ole Tap Takeover. Seven tap lines will be devoted to this local brewery’s beers: Octoberfest Ale, Imperial Pumpkin, Country Pale Ale, Belgian White, Larry, Green Monsta IPA and Blueberry Ale. That’s right – it’s time for Pumpkin beer again! Kegs will be tapped at noon and will flow all day! A crew from Wachusett will be in the pub from 5pm to 10pm to offer knowledge and give away cool stuff. The night ends with Drunken Uncles…the band, at 10pm.
More about Ricky “King” Russell: Described as "The Kingpin of the Blues" by the Boston Globe, Ricky always delivers from the heart. He has appeared with such notables as John Lee Hooker, Ronnie Earl, Susan Tedeschi, Toni Lynn Washington, Roomful of Blues and many others. He was the featured artist at the original House of Blues in Cambridge and Harvard University has bestowed upon him an honorary "Doctorate of the Blues."
