This Weekend: Hyper-Local, Amherst, And Green River Brewfests

Calling all foodies, artisan craft food devotees, craft brew fans, localvores, brew hobbyists, nano-brewers, micro-brewers and the curious-minded.

Join us for our third Local Craft Brew event and first event highlighting the pairing local brews with local ingredients. Come learn, explore, socialize, and network with more than 20 brewers and local food artisans and enjoy 3 hours of tastings of local craft beer, wine, cider, and mead. While you celebrate local brews, you can savor live music by local musicians at this lovefest of all things good and local.

Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest will showcase local craft brewers and highlight, celebrate and local promote brews made with locally sourced ingredients, including hops, barley, wheat, fruit and many other local items used for flavoring–herbs, teas, coffees, chocolates, honey and more. During this event, you will also have a chance to talk with our local brewers and purchase local wine, directly from our local vintners.
