Fall is upon us, and at Aware there is only one way to welcome the changing of the seasons –Septemberfest!
For the craft brew and wine connoisseurs at Aware, the annual Septemberfest party has quickly become one of the most anticipated events of the year. And this year’s experience definitely lived up to the 364 days of hype that ensued post Septemberfest 2013.
Last week Aware’s Chairman and CEO, Jeremy Ziegler, hosted employees and their families for an evening of tasting brews and wines crafted by some of our very own. The excellent fall setting paired with a delicious assortment of gourmet pizzas from Hello Pizza put a smile on everyone’s face. Other highlights included a few bean bag toss showdowns, Dairy Queen ice cream cakes for both the peanut butter and chocolate lovers, fireside chats and (as always) the exchanging of humorous stories late into the evening. Take a look at the tasting lineup below and browse our photos for a better glimpse of Septemberfest 2014.

Cheers to another fun-filled Septemberfest!
Trevor Olson, President & CEO of Aware, thanked guests and invited everyone to enjoy dessert as we wrapped up the evening.
However, as with all Septemberfest traditions, the fireside chats and sharing of slightly embarrassing stories went on a bit longer!
