We’re heading back to the New England Air Museum for another chance to get your brew on inside this massive hangar, housing 80 historic aircraft and the stories that lurk inside. The largest aviation museum in the Northeast is your exclusive after-hours playground for discovering new craft beers this Fall. Head back in time and climb aboard vintage planes as you chat with the men who have flown or restored them.
Wear a costume* to be entered into our costume contest for the chance to win some great prizes!
