Special events at Champney's
HOPPY HOUR, Thursday, August 7th
August 7th, 5:30-6:30, is an extra special hoppy hour at the bar with Chris from The River and Element Brewing Company here. Brewmaster Ben will be talking about his craft and offering samples. We have three of their choice beers on draught as well. There will be great bar snacks on the house for all, and a raffle for cool brewski prizes including a Mug Club Membership, worth $50, and two Champney’s gift cards for $25 each.
Also on this night we will have a carefully selected pairing of three local cheeses with three 5-ounce Element pours for $13. Magic!
And yes, we are on the Valley Beer Trail and closer than you think in Deerfield! Our fab bar has those little hooks for your handbag, bar stools made for comfort and staying, not those skimpy wobbly ones that make sure you get a wiggle on and leave. We have scores of varieties of beer by the bottle, twelve on draught, always six absolutely local, and now with the only authentic Trappist ale in America from the monks at St Joseph in Spencer, MA. Full bodied and golden, unfiltered, unpasteurized, with that classic light hop bitterness of a Belgian beer. If you can’t decide – try a flight.
FREE FUN FRIDAY, August 15th
The Highland Street Foundation has enabled 67 museums and cultural venues to be visited with no admission charge on every Friday throughout the summer. Under their generous auspices, Historic Deerfield and Memorial Hall museums will be open absolutely free to all-comers on Friday, August 15th!
From 9:30-4:30, visitors will have the opportunity to experience everything from period re-enactors, the first floor of the museum houses, historic trades and handicrafts, and artifacts and objects delineating this village’s history.
There will be lunch served at Champney’s starting at 11:30, but you can always bring a picnic, bring the dog, bring the children, and enjoy the visual experience of this National Historic Landmark Village laid out in 1671 and still lined with 18th- and 19th-century houses on their original sites. Wear comfy shoes if you don’t want ‘museum feet’ by the end of the day!
