HONESDALE — Honesdale Rotary will mark its 5th annual Beer Garden at the annual Honesdale Roots & Rhythm Music & Arts Festival on Saturday, June 16th, with a new offering: bratwurst and sauerkraut from the Alpine Restaurant, Honesdale.

Cold domestic and craft beers, plus wine, will be sold alongside the brats, popcorn and chex mix from 1pm – 8pm at the Grace Episcopal Church courtyard on 9th Street, between Church and Court Streets.

“Who doesn’t like brats and beer?” says Dolores Leopardi, event coordinator. “We like to change things up once in awhile, and this year we’ve got a little heartier fare for our patrons. It’s going to be a great day—with cold drinks and hot food in a pleasant and safe venue!”

The domestic beers will sell for $4 per serving, the craft beers from Irving Cliff Brewery and Here & Now will cost $6 each and wine will be sold for $5 a glass. Non-alcoholic items will also be available.

The Honesdale Rotary is a service club of close to 40 members dedicated to helping both the community in which they live and work and the worldwide community.

The club has donated funds for a new filter system at the Honesdale Borough pool, batting pavilions to Honesdale Little Baseball, an AED to Honesdale Friends of Soccer and funding for the Honesdale Emergency Pantry. Part of Rotary International, which counts more than a million members worldwide, Honesdale Rotary also participates in global projects, such as Polio Plus, a campaign to eradicate polio, and the Rotary’s International Student Exchange Program.

“We’re looking forward to another great year!” says club President Stephen Moutlton. “And once again, we thank Grace Episcopal Church for letting us use their courtyard.”
