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, cider & mead, artisan beverage makers, home brewers, and 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. 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 Hombrew Showcase co-sponsored by Modern Homebrew Emporium. highlighting home-brews and home-brewing with local ingredients. The Showcase, featuring a Homebrew Club Jamboree, will provide a chance for aspiring brewers, brew fans and the curious minded to experiment and learn what is available in the New England region for making their products. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn more about 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!
SBN Boston Local Food Program
This event is a celebration of local craft brews in conjunction with SBN's Boston Local Food Programs. The goal of SBN’s Boston Local Food Program is to transform the local food system by raising awareness about the abundance of wonderful locally grown and produced products in Massachusetts and New England and by encouraging individual consumers, food and beverage producers, and vendors to Think Local First. Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest presents a great opportunity to open a dialogue between local producers and consumers of craft brews in advancing the local food system.
