Lincoln, New Hampshire (PRWEB) January 23, 2012
Two of New England’s premier bands will be providing the entertainment during this year’s New England Brewfest, set for June 30 in Lincoln, NH. The Jason Spooner Trio and the aptly named, The Brew, will be the perfect bands to enjoy while tasting beers from over 20 of the Northeast’s top breweries during one of the summer’s biggest Brewfests.
The Jason Spooner Trio has been described as one of the "bright lights" in all the roots rock acts on the scene today. Their most recent album, Sea Monster, has been praised by Sirius/XM as "a very rare and special record that is destined to put Spooner on the musical map." With a busy summer schedule, opening for blues legend B.B. King and appearing at Jackson Hole, WY's Targhee Fest with the likes of Little Feat, Michael Franti, Grace Potter and Sara Bareilles, the Jason Spooner Trio is looking forward to playing at the New England Brewfest and spending some time near their hometown of Portland, Maine.
Said to have “blossomed into one of the Northeast’s finest improvisational rock groups”, The Brew has been able to “strike a rare happy balance between catchiness and cleverness, tossing out numbers that wouldn’t sound out of place next to the Dave Matthews Band…With each release, the music of The Brew gets sharper, stronger, and more pure, with an increasing emphasis on their burning and poignant lyrics.” The band is keeping busy this winter and spring, touring throughout New England and is excited to perform for the first time at the 2012 New England Brewfest.
Along with great music, the New England Brewfest will host 25 of the Northeast’s most beloved breweries and have over 75 different beers on tap for attendees to enjoy. This will also be the second year for the New England Brewfest Slider Competition, and Executive Chef Adam Parker of the Indian Head Resort is eager to defend his 2011 title. Festival goers can learn about the brewing process with the Winnipesaukee Area Brew Crew, who will be hosting a home-brew demonstration during the festival, and spend time checking out vendors and other brew-related paraphernalia throughout the festival grounds.
The New England Brewfest will be held on Saturday, June 30, 2012 from 4pm-9pm at the Lincoln Village Shops on Main Street in Lincoln, NH. Tickets go on sale Monday, April 2. For more information about the New England Brewfest visit http://www.NEBrewfest.com or email info(at)nebrewfest(dot)com.
