Join us for SBN’s Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest on Saturday, June 16th, (2:30-5:30 PM and 6:30-9:30 PM). SBN is excited about our new location in Central Square Cambridge, home of the Taste of Cambridge in University Park, near MIT, 38 SIdney Street. Tickets are $40.00 for general admission and $75.00 for a pair, $65 for VIP, and door sales are $50.00. Our Brewfest will gather nearly one thousand local craft brew fans to celebrate together with dozens of vendors over one day in two 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 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!
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.
Come enjoy unlimited beverage tastings, discover new favorites, socialize with other brew fans, and network with dozens of local brewer, vendors, and local food producers, all while supporting a local, fair, and green economy!
