Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest Highlight: Brazo Fuerte Artisanal Beer

Being a non-beer drinker I am on a mission to find a beer a really enjoy and the upcoming Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest is going to be my go-to resource to try and learn about as many local craft beers as I possibly can!

One specific brewer that will be at the festival that has caught my eye is Brazo Fuerte Artisanal Beer.

Founded by local Massachusetts resident Beverly Armstrong and named after her nickname “Brazo Fuerte” (given to her from her ruby teammates) Brazo Fuerte Artisanal Beer was created to be the perfect “post-game” session beer.

The term “session” does not actually relate to any specific flavors or aromas of the beer and session beers can actually be placed into almost any beer style category. Session refers to beers that are purposely brewed to contain less than 5% alcohol by volume (ABV) and are known for being drank for refreshment and drinkablility, and not for knocking you right out of your barstool – aka beers you can drink for a long “session” at a time!

All of Brazo Fuerte Artisanal Beers are made in the Great Boston Area using the best local organic ingredients and sustainable brewing methods. With an array of different beers including Chara British Golden Ale (named after an adorable Golden Retriever named Chara), Pony Rye’d Pale Ale, Green Tea Pale Ale, Big E Session IPA, and K-Wags Chocolate Coconut Brown Ale there is something for everyone.

I have my eye on the K-Wags since it is made with toasted organic coconut and chocolate malt!
