BERLIN — Burley Oak Brewing Co. will be hosting an all-ages family friendly event during the Town of Berlin’s fireworks display on Sunday, July 3, from 6-11 p.m.
Donating $5,000 to the display, Burley Oak will be the town’s largest sponsor and wanted to hold an event in conjunction to add to the fun, festive atmosphere.
“Burley is opening the parking lot so that people have somewhere to sit, drink a few beers or nonalcoholic beverages and see the fireworks easily,” Burley Oak General Manager Nicky Chavis said. “We wanted to help make the display happen, because everyone in the community was so let down last year when we were told they weren’t going to be happening. We didn’t want that to happen again.”
Chavis said there was a new sense of excitement around that part of Berlin because the town is developing a new multiple use outdoor park, Berlin Falls, across from the brewery.
Town of Berlin Economic Development Director Ivy Wells said she and Chavis worked together on the event.
