When: September 19
Where: Salt Drift Farm in Riverhead

This event, hosted at the always-beautiful, Instagram-ready Salt Drift Farm in Bridgehampton, brings together so many of our favorite things: excellent food, local beer, wine and spirits, and Bayonne Ham—our favorite hand-crafted, dry-cured French ham and the star of all our at-home charcuterie platters.

This event, an exclusive Bayonne Ham VIP tasting and pairing, will take place from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 19. RSVPs are required, as limited complimentary tickets are available—and moving fast.

Join us for three hours of decadence, with chef-crafted hors d’oeuvres; pours from 1427 Wines, Matchbook Distilling, and Montauk Brewing Company; and of course plenty of Bayonne Ham. Oui, s’il vous plaît!

The Pumpkin Chucker 🎃 is back at Long Island Hop Fest!🍺 . Pumpkins are useful in many ways — a centerpiece on your Thanksgiving table, a filling for a seasonal pie, a jack-o'-lantern, and, as it turns out, as a projectile! . Using a giant slingshot, attendees fire pumpkins into the field to try to hit designated bullseye targets. Always a popular festival attraction! . 🎟 Get your tickets for Long Island Hop Fest now! . #jamesportfarmbrewery #jamesportfarmbrewcrew #jfb #farmbrewery #farmgrownbeer #farmtopint #farmtopintglass #longislandinaglass #nofarmsnobeer #drinkbeerfromhere #drinklocalbeer #localcraftbeer #thinknydrinkny #northfork #locallygrown #local #supportlocalfarms #beer #craftbeer #craftbeerlife #lifreshhopfest #pumpkinchucker #hopfestival #hopfest #beerfest #beerfestival  #beertasting #beersampling #freshhop #libeerevents
