United South End Settlements (USES) plans to transform its Harriet Tubman House into one of the hippest celebrations in the South End for the third year in a row. On February 2, 2012, from 6:30-9:30pm at the Harriet Tubman House, USES is hosting its annual Brewers Helping Neighbors (BHN) ‘brewfest’, a much-anticipated event within the South End community, drawing nearly 300 young professionals living and working in and around the South End.
“This event has been a great turning point for USES,” says USES President & CEO, Kevin Lee Hepner. “We have over 4,000 people walking through our doors each year, and not enough people know about the high-quality services and programs we provide for our neighbors, from the youngest to the oldest. This event is a great opportunity to connect and share the amazing work we do here at USES with people that live and work in our community.”
Brewers Helping Neighbors is a local beer tasting, featuring several New England breweries. This year, the event will be emceed by Mix 104.1’s DJ and radio personality, Kennedy Elsey, and guests will be entertained by the reggae, funk, latin & soul-ified classics of Los Three, a local band. The main draw of the event continues to be the beer samplings from six New England breweries, including Blue Hills Brewery, Clown Shoes Beer, Harpoon Brewing Company, Mayflower Brewery, Mercury Brewing Company, and Sam Adams Brewing Company. Food samplings are being provided by four local Boston restaurants, Clerys, Darryl’s Corner Bar & Kitchen, Not Your Average Joe’s, and New York Pizza.
The event is open to adults ages 21+. Tickets are available online at www.uses.org/bhn. The first 100 to buy their tickets with the promo code ‘BHN2012’ will get $5 off the regular ticket price of $40. Ticket prices include a tasting glass, craft brews, food, beverages, and live music. Tickets will not be sold at the door and a valid form of government-issued ID is required for entry. Located at 566 Columbus Avenue in Boston’s South End, the Harriet Tubman House is a 5 minute walk from the Massachusetts Avenue Orange Line stop or the #1 and #43 buses. Street parking is limited.
