This year, the Mass Brewers Guild is working in conjunction with the folks at BeerAdvocate to host and promote Mass Beer Week.
Power Beer Fest, April 29, will kick-off the weeklong celebration of Massachusetts craft beer, and focus exclusively on Massachusetts brewers, their beers, and supporting the beer community.
We encourage everyone in the Massachusetts beer industry to celebrate and support the fine beers brewed in our great commonwealth by hosting events April 29 through May 6.
Tap rooms, breweries, brew pubs, bottle shops, and restaurants are all encouraged to participate -- need ideas?
Takeover the taps with beers brewed in Massachusetts. Not sure what to serve? Head over to BeerAdvocate and explore the 125+ breweries in the state. You could do a tap takeover focused on one style or pick your favorite Mass-brewed beers. The only requirement for a Mass Beer Week tap takeover is that all of the beers featured in the event MUST be brewed in Massachusetts.
Mass-Produced Beer Dinner
Partner with one or more Massachusetts breweries and create a menu to showcase how the flavors in the beer pair with the food. You can go a step further and locally source the ingredients for your dishes and make it an Ultra Mass-Produced Beer Dinner.
Host a Conversation or Educational Event
Partner with local beer experts to talk about the past, present, and future of Massachusetts beer, invite a local beer author and host a book signing at your venue, or host a discussion about techniques to improve the beer enjoyment experience!
Spread the World!
Download the Mass Beer Week Poster and Mass Beer Week Table Tent to display your support; includes a blank area to write in your events.
Be creative! Have fun! Celebrate Mass-produced beer!
Be sure to post your event through BeerAdvocate to have it listed on the Mass Beer Week site. The only requirement is that your event must focus exclusively on beer brewed in the state of Massachusetts. For questions or more details contact Brittany Burke at firstname.lastname@example.org.
