About the Event
Bonfire Night 2023 is upon us and we cant be more excited!
Help us to celebrate this British Tradition and enjoy the areas biggest bonfire. As with past years we are honored to run this as a fundraiser for The Spirit of Schuyler Scholarship Fund in honor of our fallen brewer & Brother - Corey Drake.
We will, as always be hosting our torchlit procession from the top of the property, led by bagpipes and with the Guy Fawkes Effigy leading the way before he is placed on the fire after which the fun starts with the lighting of the fire and watching it burn!!!
A limited number of Flaming torches to be used in the procession and for lighting the fire are available for purchase. (Grab them when you check out to ensure they dont sell out!)
The pavilion will host a number of guest breweries, wineries & distilleries pouring beverages for purchase.
Our amazing friends at Dean Lane Catering will also be onsite offering some delicious eats to fill your bellies with. (Menu coming soon).
"The Variables" will be onsite providing the incredible tunes for you to enjoy while feeling the warmth from the fire.
The Spirit of Schuyler will also be hosting a table and educating attendees on the great things they are doing as well as running a raffle with amazing prizes.
