The 9th Annual Western MA Beer Fest will be held on August 23rd, from 2-6p.

This is the largest beer festival between Springfield MA and Albany NY, attracting hundreds of visitors from Maine to New York and features hundreds of quality brews from over 60 craft domestic and international craft breweries.

In addition to hundreds of brews, the 9th Annual Western MA Beer Fest features:
~ Food Trucks
~ Reusable Tasting Cups & Rinse Stations
~ Live Music
~ Festival Games

This is not a typical beer fest with a "ticket per taste" system or "get a pint of beer and party" atmosphere.

This is an afternoon at a comfortable farm, in the beautiful Berkshires where you can appreciate and contemplate craft beer with friends and family by receiving 2-3oz samples served by knowledgeable Brewmasters and people in the industry.

Price is $25 before / $30 at the door, designated drivers are free.

All proceeds go to a local 501(3)(c) charitable organization and are tax deductible. Numerous print and online articles have been written about this event by reporters and bloggers, and it has been covered by a television station in NY.
