betterArts Hosts Successful Craft Beer Event, Snowshoe Hike

betterArts on Saturday partnered with the Indian River Lakes Conservancy to host a snowshoe hike along Redwood trails, followed by a betterArts-sponsored craft beer tasting at Better Farm.

The hike, guided by members of the Indian River Lakes Conservancy, looped around the Redwood Hill Trail along Butterfield Lake. Hikers learned all about the animals who call the North Country home, a little bit about the history of the conservancy, and other information about the flora and fauna along the trails.

Following the hike, participants headed over to Better Farm to learn about the art of craft beer brewing. betterArts board members Justin Chirico and Matthew Tardif offered six samples of locally crafted beer ranging from light to dark.

Here are some photos from the day. Thanks to all who came out for this successful event!
