2017 Amherst Christmas Tree Lighting

On Saturday, December 9th we held our 2017 Amherst Christmas Tree Lighting at our Brewery. Despite very snowy weather conditions we had a great turnout and fun was had by all. Santa was there to see the children and give them treats of candy and storybooks. We had face painting and crafts for the kids too. We had a big bonfire which everyone flocked around and enjoyed some of our delicious Airline brews! Around dusk we lit the tree and folks continued to enjoy the bonfire and company in the glowing light of our Christmas tree. Thank you to all who came and made our 2017 Amherst Christmas Tree Lighting a wonderful success. Have a safe and happy Holiday season!
