Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest is a major annual fundraiser presented by Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts (SBN) that highlights and promotes local brewers of beer, cider & mead, artisan beverage makers, home brewers, and food vendors.
This event is a celebration of local craft brews in conjunction with SBN's Boston Local Food Programs. The goal of SBN’s Boston Local Food Program is to transform the local food system by raising awareness about the abundance of wonderful locally grown and produced products in Massachusetts and New England and by encouraging individual consumers, food and beverage producers, and vendors to Think Local First.

Why join us at Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest?
What’s more, Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest is a unique event that not only showcases local beverage producers, but also showcases local brews incorporating local ingredients! Examples in the past have included brews made with TAZA Chocolate, local hops, apples, cranberries, grapes and even local oysters! While having unlimited 2oz tastings from local brewers, you can also sample and purchase delicious local food from vendors like Valicenti Organico, The Chicken & Rice Guys and more. A recap on Hyper-Local 2012 can be found here.

New this year – The Craft of Brewing: Homebrew Showcase Night
New this year for the Friday evening session, SBN will launch our first Hyper-Local Home-Brew Showcase Night, highlighting homebrews and homebrewing with local ingredients. The Showcase, featuring a Homebrew Club Jamboree, will provide a chance for aspiring brewers, brew fans and the curious minded to experiment and learn what is available in the New England region for making their products. Committed homebrew clubs include but not limited to: Wort Processors, All-Brewer's Union, F.O.A.M., Merrimack Valley HBC, North Shore Brewers, Modern Homebrew Emporium. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn more about homebrewing, interact with other aspiring brewers, hear from experts, as well as taste a selection of the brews that will be showcased during the Saturday Sessions!

Your Involvement is Important!
This year, your support will not only benefit SBN, a 501-c3 organization whose mission is to help develop economies that are local, green, and fair, but $1.00 from all ticket sales will benefit the Arts at the Armory as well! Join us to support local business. Eat Local. Drink Local. Be Local.

Location- Center for Arts at the Armory
Center for Arts at the Armory is conveniently located at 191 Highland Avenue between Davis and Union Squares in Somerville, Massachusetts. We encourage you to take public transportation and enjoy your unlimited tasting night at Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest event!
