June 22 & 23, 2018 | The Cyclorama at Boston Center for the Arts
A nod to Belgian beer, its culture, and deep influence on the brewing world.
We're excited to announce that we're bring back our Belgian Beer Fest to Boston on June 22nd and 23rd, 2018. Held at the Cyclorama at the Boston Center of the Arts, the fest returns to the historic downtown venue where our events began 15 years ago for a more intimate and educational experience.
At the Cyclorama attendees will discover everything from authentic Belgian ales to inspired American interpretations and twists on historical styles. Over the course of three sessions, brewers will pour samples of beers ranging from classic Saisons to Trappist-brewed beers, Lambics to Witbiers, Belgian styles inspired by American brewers and American styles inspired by Belgian brewers.
To offer attendees the greatest amount of choice and variety, Belgian Beer Fest will be divided into two different experiences: Friday's Night of the Funk, and Saturday’s Day of Inspired Ales.
Night of the Funk (June 22nd, 6–9:30pm) will be an evening dedicated exclusively to sour and funky beers introduced to wild yeast, bacteria, and mixed cultures. Only 550 tickets will be sold.
Day of Inspired Ales (June 23rd) will feature over 100 Belgian styles and Belgian-inspired offerings from approximately 30 American and Belgian brewers across two sessions (12–3:30pm and 6–9:30pm). Tickets are $65 per session (plus fees) and include beer tastings, Govino drinkware, and a fest guide while supplies last. Food sold separately. Only 650 tickets are available for each session.
Tickets are on sale now via Eventbrite.
Our invitational beer fests focus on supporting independent brewers and educating attendees by providing access to breweries, whose attendance is required to ensure the highest level of brand representation. And, as always, BA pays for the beer and waives booth fees. To date we've spent well over $2 million to support independent beer. Learn more...
