Brews for Boats Fundraiser at Stubborn Beauty Sunday

Central Connecticut Rowing will host the first annual “Brews for Boats” fundraiser at Stubborn Beauty Brewing Company in The Robert M. Keating Historical Enterprise Park (also known as Remington Rand) on Sunday, June 24th from 3-6 pm. The event will raise money for Middletown’s Community Rowing program.

The event will feature the craft beer of Stubborn Beauty Brewing Company, the iconic barbeque of Taino Smokehouse and music of Saint Onge. There will be an opportunity to bid on unique experiences and offerings from local businesses, artisans and organizations in the silent auction.

“This is going to be a great event,” said Rebecca MacLachlan, President of Central Connecticut Rowing. “Stubborn Beauty is such a great space, the beer is superb and you can’t go wrong with BBQ from Taino. Our vision is to grow the community rowing program here in Middletown but we need to purchase more boats to realize that growth. This is our first step in making that happen. It’s going to be a fun Sunday afternoon for a great cause and we welcome anyone who wants to join us.”

Tickets are $40 and include two craft brews, food and live music or $30 for food and music only. Non-alcoholic beverages will be available for all guests. Tickets can be purchased at, on Facebook, or contact Due to capacity constraints, only 50 tickets will be sold. To donate an item or experience to the silent action, email
