Boston is one of America’s great beer cities — after all, it is home to one of the largest independent American-owned breweries, Samuel Adams, as well as a number of local craft brewers. So if you’re one of those beer enthusiasts, don’t miss the WGBH Craft Beer Festival this July.
Hosted by public media outlet WGBH, the Craft Beer Festival’s second occurrence promises a new and exciting social event, while at the same time offering a more sophisticated set up based on experience. Festival attendees will have the pleasure of sampling some of New England’s favorite craft brews, tasting food from various Boston food trucks, and enjoying a variety of live entertainment.
Peak Organic, Rapscallion, Smuttynose and Downeast Cider House are among the favorite brands that will be present at the WGBH Craft Beer Festival. Beantown’s two favorite suppliers will also be in the mix: Harpoon Brewery and Samuel Adams will be doling out samples from their vast and respectable collections. Their summer seasonal beers are expected to be in the mix and are also available for advanced tastings in stores and bars all around the country. Beer fans can also visit the Harpoon and Sam Adams breweries for a full tour.
The WGBH Craft Beer Festival takes place on July 12 just down the road from the Boxer Hotel at WGBH’s studio in one of Boston’s favorite neighborhoods, Brighton. Tickets are $40 for WGBH members and $50 for non-WGBH members, available for purchase now at the festival website.
