Peace, love and cheers - two sessions of beers! Join us for the ultimate springtime celebration.

Groove your way on into Boston on Saturday, April 20 from 1 to 4:30 p.m. and 6 to 9:30 p.m. to sample beer from more than 40 Massachusetts craft breweries all under one roof. These brewmasters aren't just serving up their finest beers; they're adding some far-out seltzers and ciders to the mix too.

Each sip at the Massachusetts Craft Brewers Festival supports the Mass Brewers Guild—the real deal, fighting for the rights and passions of our craft brewers across the Commonwealth. And dig this: this event is all about brewers, by brewers, making it the ultimate vibe for local craft beer lovers.
