Kick Off Summer at the Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy a refreshing beer and there’s no better place to do so than at the Sustainable Business Network’s Third Annual Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest. The event takes place at the Arts at the Armory in Somerville, only a few miles from The Batch Yard, on June 13 and 14. Tickets are $45 for one of three sessions.

The Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest truly features the best in area breweries. Somerville’s own Aeronaut Brewing, the Cambridge Brewing Company, the Boston Beer Company, Portico Brewing Company of Boston and Idle Hands Craft Ales from Charlestown will all be on hand for the event.

The rest of the event’s breweries are from various cities in Massachusetts with a few coming down from Maine. In addition to the craft beer, Downeast Cider from Charlestown, Far From the Tree Cider from Salem and Gus Soda will take part in the event.

Attendees will get access to unlimited 2-ounce samples of the various beers on tap during the event. The brews are sure to be unique, with many featuring New England ingredients like local hops, apples, cranberries, grapes and even oysters!

And you can wash down all those delicious drinks with local food. From Somerville’s Taza Chocolate and Q’s Nuts to Valicenti Organico from Hollis, New Hampshire, and Vermont Smoke and Cure, there will be tasty treats that appeal to all. Food is available for purchase for $6 or less.

In addition to the regular beer sampling, the Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest is hosting a special Homebrew Showcase during the Friday night session. This will give attendees a chance to taste some very local, rarely sampled beverages and learn about the homebrewing process.

So if you like delicious, craft beer and food, come down to the Arts at the Armory for a celebration of all things local!
