We're excited to announce that once again, Craft Collective (CC) is our official distribution sponsor for Spooky Brews 2019! CC is an independent craft beer distribution company serving Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Maine, and we’re thrilled (in the spookiest sense of the word) to be working with this team to bring the brewers beer to Boston this fall.


Craft Collective is an independent craft beer distribution company focused on quality, small, craft producers. We maintain ample refrigeration, a fully, bone-chillingly cold, climate-controlled warehouse, and refrigerated delivery vehicles (and a vintage collection of horror movies). Our people represent our brands with enthusiasm and diligently care for our products. We're honest, accommodating, and committed to helping small craft producers succeed. We primarily work with New England and New York breweries like Fiddlehead, Aeronaut, SingleCut, Finback, Idle Hands, Proclamation, and more. You can view our portfolio at www.getcraft.co.

When is last call?

Brewers will be instructed to stop serving beer 10 minutes before the end of the session.

Who will be pouring the beer?

At all of our Juicy Brews festivals we work to make sure that a representative from the brewer is on hand to pour beer, answer questions, and goof off. Typically this is the head brewer or founder.

Which beers will be served?

The beers at the fest are extremely fresh and limited release, so it's hard to predict brewing schedules well in advance. However, we'll release the beer lists in the week leading up to the fest as they become available.

Will there be enough beer?

We bring enough beer to our festivals that the majority of breweries will be pouring beer for the entire fest. However, due to their popularity, some breweries will kick their kegs before last call, typically within the last 45 minutes. We do our best to avoid this.

Other FAQs

Will you have merchandise?

Absolutely. Our glassware, tekus, shirts, pins, and stickers are designed by London-based Sam Taylor.

How do I apply for media passes?

Send an email to Kenny at kenny@hopculture.com. Please include the name of your publication or account and your estimated reach. Media passes are typically reserved for traditional media.

Final Thoughts:

Please DO NOT open any cans or bottles during the festival. For legal reasons, they will be confiscated.

It's a beer fest and we want everyone to have a good time, but anyone that's visibly intoxicated and acting like a clown will be asked to leave.
