Partnering with the local art-friendly microbrewery, the evening presents a networking event filled with interesting people, singing, and tasty craft beer. Connect with artists, municipal and community leaders and business owners living or working in Bergen County and meet others with similar interests.

The event is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome. Craft beer is available for purchase. All beer sales defray the event’s costs. Buy a glass of beer to support the NNJCF, a non-profit, tax-exempt organization.

Attendees will create a song from scratch with singer/songwriter Alice Leon, who will lead a fun group songwriting activity. Leon, a multi instrumentalist, has led several bands and opened for and shared the stage with Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, Melissa Etheridge, and John Eddie, among others. No singing experience is necessary.

"The NNJCF’s ArtsBergen partners with Alementary Brewing Company to forge connections between the arts and businesses that strengthen and support cultural and economic opportunities in our area. We invite anyone in the community interested in the arts to come out, raise a glass of beer and their voices and have fun at a non-traditional networking event aimed to build the arts community," said Danielle De Laurentis, Associate Director, NNJCF.
