Mass Beer Week

Mass Beer Week | April 29 - May 6, 2017 | The Commonwealth of Massachusetts

It started with Boston Beer Week.
We founded Boston Beer Week in 2010 but there hasn't been one since 2013. Why? It didn't get the support we hoped for, and local beer options at the time were limited. In fact, it got more support from beer bars and out of state brewers than it did from brewers within the 128 Belt.

Mass Beer Week is born.
The one takeaway from Boston Beer Week, and our discussions with those in the industry, was that this week had to be more inclusive. And to take things a step further, we strongly believe that unlike many other beer weeks, Mass Beer Week needs to focus entirely on the beer community and breweries of Massachusetts.

The inaugural Mass Beer Week was held November 4-13, 2016.

Massachusetts Brewers Guild.
We're pleased to announce that we're now actively working with the Massachusetts Brewers Guild to help spread the word about Mass Beer Week. More info to follow.
