Mash Tun Festival: The Invitational

Going: 1 | Watching: 0 | Invited: 0
The third edition of the Mash Tun Festival takes place June 15th, 2-6pm, 2013 in Bridgeport, the Community of the Future.

The festival is a celebration of the release of Mash Tun: A Craft Beer Journal issue #3. The Mash Tun is a publication put out by your buddies at Maria’s Packaged Goods & Community Bar and The Public Media Institute, a non profit arts and culture organization based in Bridgeport. Mash Tun is our paean to craft beer. It follows the pleasures and aesthetics of craft beer and how it intersects with food, culture, and society.

The festival features over two dozen of the world’s best breweries. Flagship and rare beers will be poured alongside one-of-a-kind concoctions at the stunning Bridgeport Art Center at 35th and Racine. The festival will be held in the 19th century atrium and the Center’s lovely sculpture garden. Local chefs and food trucks will be vending. Craft spirits and wineries will also be sampling their wares and you will help decide which brewery will win an award for making the best beer.

We are hosting an awards ceremony this year and will be giving out awards to brewers that make the best liquid in these categories:

Hopped and Confused
The Bold and Beautiful
Every Day is Like Sunday
WTF Is This

Participating Breweries include:
Against the Grain, Artisanal Imports, Ballast Point, Begyle, Deshutes, Finch’s, Founder’s, Gigantic, Great Lakes, Greenbush, Half Acre, Lagunitas, Lake Effect, Mikkeller, Oskar Blues, Pipeworks, Red Streak, Revolution, Sixpoint, Solemn Oath, Stone, Summit, Three Floyds, Tighthead, and others.
