About the New England Craft Beer Open
It started like most great ideas, around a bar, with beer and great friends. What if the craft beer industry got together for a golf tournament? Not solely a charity event, not an event that brewers just happen to be at, but a tournament just for us. So many brewers play the game, so many others drink beer while walking around a golf course swinging at a white ball.
Now in the third year of the tournament, which was started by Scott Kerner and Ross Evans, the event welcomes brewers, distillers, coffee roasters, and avid fans of all craft beverages to participate. Scott and Ross are brothers-in-law, business partners, and avid golfers. With so many other friends in and around the craft beverage business also spending time on the golf course it felt like there was a need to come together at the same time for an event...thus, the New England Craft Beer Open was born.
To date, the event has raised over $17,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Lifestyle Foundation.
All profits from the event will go to Cystic Fibrosis Lifestyle Foundation (CFLF). CFLF assists in providing avenues toward healthy and active lifestyles through recreation, thereby empowering and educating people with Cystic Fibrosis on the critical psychological, social, and emotional connections between their lifestyle and their health.
