Fundraiser was on tap for Swampscott Fish House
SWAMPSCOTT -- Beer on the beach was the perfect way to distract Swampscott residents from Saturday's heat wave. And it was for a good cause.
Back in February, Swampscott resident David Grishman and a group of his friends were feeling the winter blues. They had visions of music and beer on the beach. One of them had the idea for a beer garden on Fisherman's Beach and the organizing efforts began immediately. Trying to pin down a charitable cause for the event, they knew raising money for renovations to the historic Fish House was the only option, said Grishman.
