Update: Congratulations Hilary Merina, the randomly selected winner of the ticket giveaway! And thanks to everyone who entered–you have terrific taste in beer. If you didn’t win the giveaway, tickets are still available.
The Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest returns to Somerville for two days in June with some of the best beers created right here in New England. And I’ve got a chance for you to win two tickets to the session of your choice. This annual event takes place at the Arts at the Armory (191 Highland Ave.) on Friday and Saturday, June 13 and 14 in three sessions. Attendees will have the opportunity to try unlimited two-ounce samples of local beer, cider and other artisan beverages.
The Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest has attracted brewers from around New England, with most coming from Massachusetts and one representing Somerville. Aeronaut Brewing (14 Tyler St.), which regularly uses local ingredients in its brews, is creating a special beer just for this event. The full list of brewers includes Berkshire Brewing Company from South Deerfield, Cambridge Brewing Company, Idle Hands Craft Ales from Charlestown, Portico Brewing Company from Boston and Watch City Brewing Company from Waltham, among others. In addition to beer, Downeast Cider from Charlestown, Far From the Tree Cider from Salem and Gus Soda from Cambridge will be on hand pouring samples.
On Friday night, attendees will get to participate in the special Homebrew Showcase, where they can learn about homebrewing and sample homebrews that will not be available during any other session. Food from places like Vermont’s Cabot Creamery Cooperative, Somerville’s own Taza Chocolate and New Hampshire’s Valicenti Organico, among others, will be available for purchase for $6 or less.
Tickets for the 21-plus event are $45, but I’ve got a chance for you to win two tickets to the session of your choice.
