Join New England Forestry Foundation (NEFF) and Dirigible Brewing Co. in celebrating the release of their new spruce tip beer! Learn more about this unique partnership and the beer itself by getting a rare behind-the-scenes look at the harvest and brewing process.

NEFF Bioeconomy Initiative Director Jennifer Shakun and Dirigible Head Brewer and Co-owner Colin Knirk will lead an intimate discussion on forestry, beer, and the surprising overlap of both in terms of their sustainability practices, product lifecycles, and support of local economies.

Each ticket includes a private brewery tour as well as one 16 oz. tasting. Attendees at the event will have a chance to win exclusive Patagonia merchandise. $1 from each additional pint or crowler (32 oz. can) sold will be donated to NEFF. All ticket sales from this event go directly to NEFF’s conservation efforts.
