Beer Summit returns for its sixteenth year on April 17-18, with an extensive lineup that includes 57 breweries pouring over 200 beers and ciders. As always, producers Mike Munnelly, Conor Brennan and Shawn Rich are placing an emphasis on local beers, with over 30 from New England, including notable breweries like Allagash, Bad Martha, Peak Organic, and Harpoon.

“We are very proud of April’s lineup, and with 200+ plus beers being poured from all over the world, there is really something for every type of beer drinker to discover. We love to call attention to the strong selection of beers made right here in our home state, and we’ve been fortunate enough to be able to get to know the great people who work year round to produce these incredible brews,” says Munnelly via a press release.

In addition to the Bay State’s local talent, Beer Summit will feature some of the world’s most acclaimed breweries, including Boulevard Brewing Company from Kansas City, Finch’s Beer Company from Chicago, Founders Brewing Co. from Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Lagunitas from California. Cover artists will be performing live throughout the weekend and Fenway’s The Sausage Guy will be serving up his signature burgers, sausages, and hot dogs.
