Drink Local

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! What makes up New England? Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

 

Chat with Brewers

All two 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 coordinated by Randy Baril, former 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!

 

Giving Back

The Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest is an annual tasting fundraiser for the Boston Local Food Program and is presented by Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts (SBN). This Brewfest highlights and promotes local brewers of beer, newly established breweries, cider & mead, artisan beverage makers, and local food vendors. SBN’s definition of local starts in Massachusetts and encompasses all of New England.
