On July 26th, The Arboretum is hosting the 2nd Annual Ales in the Garden from 7pm – 9pm.  A unique program partnering The Arboretum with a local brewery, this year we are excited to be featuring Granville Brewing Company.  This evening promises to be a fun mix of plants, food, and libations–you won’t want to miss out!

Enjoy an evening with our Horticulture staff as you take in the beautiful sights of our Azalea Glen. Staff-lead guided tours will spotlight our favorite plants in this garden and the history of this space as it has evolved over the past 85 years.

Don’t be fooled by the name of the Azalea Glen as only having azaleas and rhododendrons within it–a closer look reveals a splendiferous display of colors and ornamental interest from a wide range of plants–there is much to see and learn about!

Known for their Belgian beers, owners Jay Parsons and Ross Kirk from Granville Brewing Company will impress attendees with their enthusiasm and knowledge as you taste these hugely flavorful brews.  I would be remiss if I didn’t briefly mention the light-bites planned for this evening. A menu structured off the flavorful notes of each beer leaves me with one thought: Yum.
