'Shoes & Brews series starts at Bronson Hill/Iron Furnace Brewing!

  • Bronson Hill Sugar Hill, NH 03585 (map)


Join us for ACT's 'Shoes & Brews event on Saturday, Jan. 12 from 2 - 5:30 p.m.! The group will meet for a snowshoe (or X-C ski if that suits your fancy and conditions allow) at Bronson Hill at 2 p.m. then head down the hill to Iron Furnace Brewing in Franconia for brews from 4 - 5:30 p.m.  

The outdoor portion is planned for about an hour and a half with ACT Board member Ned Brewer and ACT Executive Director Rebecca Brown. We'll be moving at a slow to moderate pace along old woods roads and to the beautiful open fields atop Bronson Hill.  We'll also stop to warm up in the historic cabin and enjoy sweeping views of Franconia Ridge and beyond. Kids are encouraged to come along and dogs are welcome!

After the walk the group will reconvene at Iron Furnace Brewing in Franconia for refreshments and a warm up. Come have a beverage and catch up with old friends and get to know more folks in your community. All are welcome (bring a friend!) and are free to come and go as needed. The event will officially run from 4 pm to about 5:30pm but you're invited to stay and enjoy the newly extended menu at Iron Furnace!

Not able to make it to both portions? We'd love to see you at either please just leave a note in the registration to let us know so we can plan accordingly. If you're only coming to the Beal House, please bring a friend(s)!

Registration for this event is required - for your safety and enjoyment we must cap the snowshoe/ski at 20 participants so please be sure to pre-register ASAP. Be aware registration closes at noon on Friday, January 11th. 
Once registered, you will receive an e-mail with details on the meeting location.
