Brewers_ales_Winter 2017CHEERS to 5 YEARS!

Thank you to EVERYONE who made BMC’s 2017 winter fundraiser a huge success! The event SOLD OUT for the fifth year in a row. We raised $20,000 to help support maritime programs at BMC.  A special thank you goes out to our Ales for Sails committee: Kathy and Bren Lindell, Doug Boucher, Kathy and Lew Boucher, Carol Hirsch, Mike Eisert, Debbie Heitzenrater, Dennis Williams, Rich and Amy Eisenberg, Amanda Loose Nagle and Emily Perrotta. Great job everyone!

Cheers to Five Years!!!  Our Ales for Sails event featured the 1812 Gunboat Schooner Porcupine on display center stage in the BMC boatshop, local craft brews, delicious food provided by Stephany’s Catering, a live DJ by Millennium Sound, Photo Booth by Video Veritas, Maritime Training Simulator Demonstrations by Gene Polaski and more! We were excited to welcome local breweries Voodoo, Lavery Brewing, Blue Canoe, Erie Brewing, Erie Ale Works, Timber Creek, Five &20 Spirits and Brewing, The BrewErie and Millcreek Brewing.
