Best of Boston

2015 Best Festival, Booze

Beer Summit

The Beer Summit’s ubiquitous pretzel necklaces, old-school cover bands, and mix of beer fans young and old make us nostalgic for the days when Boston was a beer-festival pioneer. The event’s focus on New England breweries and blue-collar craft brewers (no exotic rum-barrel-aged or grapefruit-zest-laden über-beers) is downright refreshing.
