What is Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest?
Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest is an annual tasting fundraiser presented by Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts (SBN) that highlights and promotes local brewers of beer, newly established breweries, cider & mead, artisan beverage makers, and local food vendors.
Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest is a unique event that not only showcases local beverage producers, but also showcases local brews incorporating local ingredients. SBN’s definition of local starts in Massachusetts and encompasses all of New England. Hyper-Local means local producers (from New England) making products with ingredients from New England. Examples in the past have included brews made with local hops, apples, cranberries, grapes and even local oysters. The Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest will showcase local craft brewers and highlight, celebrate, and promote – brewers, cideries, meaderies, and artisan craft beverages produced in New England. It’s a great opportunity to meet brewers, micro-brew experts, and local eateries that are as passionate about local brews as you are! While having unlimited 2oz tastings from local brewers, you can also sample and purchase delicious local food from vendors like Vermont Smoke and Cure, Taza Chocolate, and more.
What makes Friday night special?
Join us on Friday night for Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest with a special Craft of Small Batches Tasting inspired by previous Homebrew Showcase section, highlighting newly established local breweries and special batches that are crafted only for Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest. The Showcase, featuring a Small Batches Jamboree, will open dialogues between craft brewers, brew fand and the curious minded to experiment and learn what is available in the New England region for making their products. Attendees will also have an opportunity to learn more about making small batches, homebrewing, interact with other aspiring brewers, hear from experts, as well as taste a selection of the brews that will be showcased during the Saturday Sessions. In doubt? Attend on both days!
