The Mass Brewers Guild Highlights New Breweries with Roundtable Tasting Event - Saturday, March 3 from Noon to 3 p.m.
NATICK, Mass.| Haven’t had the chance to check out some of the state’s newest breweries? The Mass Brewers Guild has you covered. “Meet the Brewers: Freshman Class of 2018,” will bring together nine of the state’s newly launched breweries for an intimate, roundtable style tasting event with unique access to brewers.
The lineup includes: 7th Wave Brewing, Lookout Farm Brewing Co., Moby Dick Brewing Co., River Styx Brewing Co., Shakesbeer, Shovel Town Brewery, Turtle Swamp Brewing, Untold Brewing and Widowmaker Brewing.
Tickets are $40 and all proceeds will benefit the Mass Brewers Guild, the state’s trade association that works to protect and promote the interests of craft brewers across the Commonwealth. The fundraiser aims to foster learning and education of the brewing process and inspire deeper connections between brewers and craft beer lovers.
“We had a record-breaking number of breweries launch in the state last year - 39 to be exact - and we are expecting 25 additional breweries to come on board in 2018,” says Katie Stinchon, executive director of the Mass Brewers Guild. “This event makes it easier for our craft beer fans to keep track of our freshman breweries, and gives them the opportunity to wrap their lips around some of the Bay state’s new beer. This is the second year that we are hosting this event. It’s a different approach to a beer festival that both our attendees and brewers really enjoy.”
How does the event work? Upon arrival, guests will be broken up into groups of eight. Each group will then have twelve minutes with each brewer to enjoy up to three samples, ask questions, and hear the story behind the beer and the brewery before rotating to the next brewer. Attendees will receive a souvenir MBG tasting glass and gourmet, Bavarian pretzels from Wicked Twisted Pretzels.
Meet the Brewers: Freshman Class of 2018 will take place at Lookout Farm Brewing Co., 89 Pleasant Street South, Natick, Mass, on Saturday, March 3 from noon to 3 p.m. Tickets are limited.
