It’s going to be a gorgeous weekend for a 5K run — and even better, for a craft beer festival! Craft Brew Races returns to Fort Adams Trust yet again for Craft Brew Races – Newport 2018 this Saturday, July 21st.

Matt Gray, President of Gray Matter Marketing, joined Frank Prosnitz and me to chat about this weekend’s event, how people can still sign up, and what neighbors, participants, and all should know about the event (traffic/etc).

Also on today’s program – Suzanna Laramee, a board member of the Newport Music Festival, is the only resident artist from Newport playing in the Festival. She joined us today to talk about the festival and her experience playing at the festival.
