STAMFORD, Conn.--  Bridgeport's Asylum Distillery was there. So was Stamford's Brother Jimmy's BBQ , Orignal Pappa's Pizza , Norwalk's Chamo Truck , Litchfield Distillery , Stony Creek Beer and Connecticut's ever-popular Hapa Food Truck , among others.

In other words, there was lots of food, beer, and whiskey at the first Stamford Brew and Whiskey Festival.

The event, at Harbor Point in Stamford on Thursday, Sept. 14, also included boardwalk games and music by the NYC street band, The Secret Recipe (Receta Secreta).

It was all for a good cause --  the annual fundraiser for the local non-profit affordable housing developer, New Neighborhoods, Incorporated (NNI). Altogether, NNI raised over $35K for the night. Funds raised will go towards building more senior housing in the Fairfield Country region.

"We hope the festival continues to grow each year to further NNI’s mission to increase affordable housing,”
