Event Details

Spring is the time when hops just start to grow and we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate that than a fest celebrating hops themselves. Now, it would be easy to just break out a bunch of Double IPAs, and don't get us wrong there will be some of those too, but we challenged the brewers to come up some news ways of celebrating hops.

Why Join Us At Springfest?

Drink Craft Beer Springfest focuses on New England-made beers that feature one of our favorite ingredients, hops! By attending, you’ll be able to sample 80+ beers from 25 of New England’s best craft brewers, each one of them bringing at least one hop-focused brew! Many of these are being made specifically for this event or will be released there. Additionally, you can sample and purchase food from several local food vendors.

  • There are no refunds OR exchanges.
  • All attendees must be 21+ with a valid ID. Nobody will be allowed into the building who is under 21 or who doesn't have a valid ID.
