Local Food Notes for Nov. 3

Enjoy local beer and support the Clearfield SPCA...and future pets like this cute little guy...at the 2017 Ales for Tales Saturday.

The Olde Bedford Beer Festival, The Bishop Carroll Wine Festival, Ales for Tails (support the Clearfield SPCA while enjoying great beer!), and the PA Veterans Farm Trail highlight this week’s Local Food Notes.

- Head to Bedford Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. for a unique combination of history and hops, the Olde Bedford Beer Festival. More than a dozen Pennsylvania brewers will take over cabins in Old Bedford Village for an afternoon of tastings in the beautiful living history museum. Some of the village craftsmen will also be on hand to meet and greet guests while creating their historic crafts—blacksmith, tin smith, dipped candles, pottery, and more…plus live music by Jackson Monsour, food truck fare, historic photo ops, souvenir tasting glasses, and the debut of Bedford’s first craft beer from the Olde Bedford Brewing Company.
- The Bishop Carroll Wine Festival will be held Saturday from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Bishop Carroll High School in Ebensburg. The event will feature seven local wineries, food, cheeses, live music, and a drawing for a new Mustang. Tickets are $20, which includes wine tasting and souvenir glass, and are available at the high school office and at the door.
- Woof! The 2017 Ales for Tails is a craft beer and wine tasting event to benefit the Clearfield County SPCA, held on Nov. 4 from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. The ticket includes a BBQ meal and a tasting glass. There will be over 30 beers and wine from two wineries. There will also be vendors, live music and prizes available. For tickets or for more information, call 814-765-2220.
- Nine military veteran-owned farms will host the public Saturday during the PA Veteran Farm Trail. Meet the animals, talk to the farmers, and purchase local food goods at some farms. For those now serving or who have completed their service but have always dreamed of farming, learn how these veteran farmers are living their agricultural dreams—you can get practical advice. if you aren’t interested in becoming a farmer, it’s still worth the trip to support them. Learn more about the trail and how to make reservations.
