Patrons enjoy local brews at craft beer tasting

OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - The Walter Anderson Museum was saying cheers Wednesday with its second annual Craft Beer Tasting.

The event drew hundreds of patrons ready to sample beers from Chandeleur Brewing Company, Crooked Letter Brewing Company and Lazy Magnolia. Pub style snacks were also provided, along with music by Joanna Barbera.

It was a fundraising event for the museum, but executive director Rosemary Roosa said it was also designed to bring social fun together with art appreciation.

"Our goal is to bring in the younger generation, kind of expose them to the museum," said Roosa. "Get them involved, look at the artwork, fall in love with Walter Anderson all over again."

Roosa said the goal for the museum is to have a social event like the Craft Beer Tasting each month.
