MILFORD — Milford is the place to be later this month for those interested in combining the joy of drawing with drinking beer.

The Milford Arts Council (The MAC) and Milford Point Brewing are partnering to offer the first Brews & Pose on May 23. The event will take place at Milford Point Brewing, 230 Woodmont Road Building 29B, at 7 p.m.

This event is open to all 21 and older, and no prior experience is necessary. The $28 admission fee will provide all the supplies needed and one free brew.

"The opportunity to partner with Milford Point Brewing is very exciting for us,” Meg Carriero, said Marketing Specialist for the MAC. “We have been offering a figure drawing class at our Firehouse Gallery twice a month since the fall, but to get out into the community and bring it to Milford Point Brewing will bring a different environment.

“It will definitely be a fun night drawing ‘from the model’ in an easy and comfortable atmosphere while sipping on some tasty brews,” Carriero added.

Tickets for Brews & Pose are available at milfordarts.org/brews-and-pose
