We're bringing our Belgian Beer Fest back 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. Sponsored by: The Lost Abbey, Brewers Association, Craft Beer Cellar, and Spiegelau.

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 Quads, Lambics to Witbiers, Belgian styles inspired by American brewers and American styles inspired by Belgian brewers. And 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.

The Glass: by Spiegelau Spiegelau Barrel-Aged Craft Beer Glass

Night of the Funk attendees will get the rare opportunity to enjoy beers from the Spiegelau Barrel-Aged Beer Glass, the unique shape of which was developed through a series of design and tasting workshops in collaboration with master brewers from leading American craft breweries.

These modernized glasses allow the beer to release its full spectrum of flavors, and deliver them to nose and mouth. Night of the Funk glasses will be unbranded for use at the fest and beyond.
