Tickets are $48.00  for general admission and $89.00 for a pair. Our Brewfest will gather nearly one thousand local craft brew fans to celebrate together with dozens of vendors over two days, and three sessions, of unlimited drink samples, food, and fun!


Wonder what it takes for a drink to be considered “Hyper-Local?” Not only are the beers, ciders, meads, and artisanal beverages at our festival made by local producers (from New England), they’re local from the start – created with ingredients grown, made, or harvested in New England. Past examples include brews made with local hops, apples, cranberries, grapes and even oysters!


All three of our sessions will provide attendees with the opportunity to chat with the brewers, learn more about making small batches and homebrewing, hear from experts, and taste a selection of local brews, from local makers.In addition, our Friday night session will feature a special Beer on Cask Tasting “conditioned” by Randy Baril, Head Cellarman of NERAX (the New England Real Ale eXhibition) and featured brewers. Try unfiltered and unpasteurized beer with no nitrogen or carbon dioxide added!. New this year is an invitation only Industry Session targeted to restaurants, institutions and retailers interesting in sourcing local brews.


This showcase  is a great chance to experiment with something new and unique!
