Everything is under a massive tent.

Back on the New Hampshire Seacoast by popular demand, the NH Brew Fest is the premier event in NH for craft brewers from the entire NE region and beyond to showcase their talent. The Master Brewers Association of America New England Chapter will be hosting this event, with proceeds going to Prescott Park Arts Festival and the MBAA's scholarship fund. This is a beer fest put on by brewers for craft brew lovers.
