2014 CBC Barleywine Fest

Thursday - January 30, 2014 @ 05:00PM / Ends: Thursday - January 30, 2014 @ Midnight
Beer Festival
Cambridge Brewing Company, Cambridge, Massachusetts
(617) 494-1994
On January 30th at 5pm we’ll be tapping 15 big, bold beers to warm your winter. This year’s event will feature 13 varietals of our Blunderbuss and Arquebus barleywines (dating back all the way to 2006!) and two expressions of Bad Knees, our English-style Old Ale.

Once again Executive Chef David Drew is thrilled to accept the challenge of creating a menu that stands up to and matches the intense flavors of our American Barleywines. A weaker chef might break under the pressure but Chef David fully understands the flavor nuances of this incredibly complex beer style and he’s not afraid!

See both menus below!

As always there is no cover charge or reservations for this event and no need to buy tickets in advance.
