When you attend Crafts, Drafts & Barrels annual tasting benefit, you're making a difference in the lives of family, friends and neighbors receiving care at the Concord Hospital Cardiovascular Institute, all while sampling spirits, beer and wine from some of the best local and domestic breweries, as well as domestic and international vineyards and distilleries. This event is sponsored by Martignetti Companies of Northern New England.

This year's event was held on February 17, 2023, at the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center in Concord, NH.

Discover the unique tastes of spirits, beer, wine and creative "mocktails" while tasting small bites and treats from local restaurants, showcasing the connection between delectable bites and your beverage of choice. Step it up a level and join our VIP party or become a Libation Education Club member and take part in an exciting and exclusive class taught by a certified mixologist. This year's class theme is, "He Said Beer, She Said Wine." 

Last year's event welcomed local restaurants, breweries and distilleries from around the state to the Discovery Center, including wines provided by Martignetti Companies of Northern New England, 603 Brewing, Concord Craft Brewing, Tamworth Distilling, and many more!  Tasty bites were provided by T-Bones Great American Eatery, NH Doughnut Co, The Common Man, The Granite Restaurant, Concord Hospital Catering and more. Please plan to join us!

This year, Crafts, Drafts & Barrels will host a live silent auction at the event. Attendees will be able to register for a bidding number at registration upon arrival and bidding will start promptly at 6 pm and end at 8 pm. Stay tuned for the amazing items that you will be able to bid on!
