Brew and Chew Wolfeboro
March 4, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Fisherville “Brew and Chew” Returns March 4 Wolfeboro – If the adage “As the days grow longer, the cold grows stronger” holds true, the Second Annual Fisherville Brew and Chew will be held on Wolfeboro Bay Saturday, March 4 along with the Fourth Annual Wolfeboro Fishing Derby; if Mother Nature doesn’t come through with sub-temperatures providing safe ice, the event will still be held in the Dockside parking area, Downtown Wolfeboro from noon – 3 pm. Visitors will sample a variety of brews in the Fisherville Beer Garden sponsored by Sam Adams, Anheuser Busch, and 603 distributors. There’ll be chili, chowder, and hot chocolate for sale in the bob-houses, and local merchants may have Fisherville Sale Specials in their shops. Black’s Country Store, Cottage Surroundings, Dive Winnipesaukee, Goodhue and Hawkins Navy Yard, Hole in the Wall, Nolan’s Brick Oven Bistro, Straw Cellar Fudge and Gifts, Wolfe’s Tavern, and the Wolfeboro Trolley Company will be selling food and wares from their own bob houses. Dive Winnipesaukee is sponsoring the Wolfeboro Fishing Derby. The
one-day contest is limited to fish caught on March 4 in Wolfeboro Bay. Cash prizes will be awarded to the largest (by weight) fish caught in four categories including cusk, rainbow trout, yellow perch and white perch, and a fifth category, the MOST rock bass. Anglers may pre-register at Dive Winnipesaukee shop, North Main Street, or day-of, at Dive Winnipesaukee’s shop or bob-house. Weigh-in will be at 4 pm on Saturday, March 4 at the bob-house. The best access to Wolfeboro Bay is from Brewster Beach on Clark Road. Participants are invited back on Sunday to learn how to clean their catch and enjoy a fish fry at Dive Winnipesaukee’s bob-house. Dating back to 1888, Fisherville, a community of small shacks called bob houses, ice-houses or shanties traditionally appeared on Wolfeboro Bay in December or January as soon as the ice was deemed “safe.” It’s back!
