International Beer Day is Friday, Aug. 7, but here in Fairfield, we celebrate our locally owned breweries and tap rooms every day. We’re proud to have such a growing craft beer community. And while 2020’s International Beer Day might have to be celebrated a bit different, we encourage you to support our local and talented brewers!
