Wright at Night to feature local beer, mead and food and live music

In celebration of its 25th anniversary, Wright Museum in Wolfeboro will host Wright at Night on Tuesday, August 6, an event that will feature local beer and mead tastings, food, live music and more.

Featured brewers include Burnt Timber Brewing & Tavern, Hobbs Tavern & Brewing Company, Lone Wolfe Brewing Co. and Sap House Meadery. Food will be provided by local vendors, including Jacob Ivester, Personal Chef, with live music by George Barber.

For museum staff, the opportunity to host such an event is special, especially given its unique nature.

“This is an event we feel will attract a wide audience that in turn might take an interest in what we do here at The Wright,” said museum Executive Director Mike Culver. “We are truly honored to have these all these folks join us for a very special night.”

For event participants, the chance to “give back” is meaningful, too. Barber, whose musical style draws from Alt-Country and Americana, said he is excited to perform at the event.

“I’m honored to play this music, so steeped in America’s traditions and history, at an event that celebrates those same tenets,” he said.

To date, Barber has toured and shared the stage with various music icons, such as Joe Pug, the Low Anthem, Derek Russell Fimbel, Annie and the Beekeepers, and Tallahassee.

“Having George here and our region’s incredible local brewers and culinary masters, I think this is going to be an event people will not want to miss,” added Culver.

Tickets, priced at $20 for non-members and $10 for members, will be available at the door. Tickets include 4 tastings with additional drink tickets priced at $5.

During the event, attendees are also welcome to tour the museum.

“We have some incredible exhibits this year,” said Culver. “This event opens the museum up at a time of day that may make it more accessible for those who work outside the area.”
