2nd Annual Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest
Presented by The Williams Agency at Center for the Arts at The Armory
June 14 - June 15, 2013
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.
