You made it through another week, you’ve earned yourself a beer or three!
Take a look at what’s going on across southern Mass. and the Ocean State this weekend.
Check out Bridgewater’s newest food vendor, Park Dogs, serving up ballpark franks alongside some great brews.
Hopfest! returns once again, this time bigger and better than ever! Sample plenty of kick-ass local brews, plus some more regional offerings. I hear there are still a few tickets left, so act fast and grab them! Two sessions means twice the fun, but also means smaller groups and more chances to grab a pour. With plenty of beer festivals just over the horizon, this is the perfect opportunity for some very important training.
The fun doesn’t have to end after things wrap up at the festival. Keep the good time rolling and the beers flowing at British Beer Company Plymouth. Enjoy brews from several breweries from the festival, including Barrel House Z, Stoney Creek, Otter Creek and Revival.
Classic wood fire pizza served out of a sweet mobile brick oven! Enjoy a slice out on BHBW’s outdoor patio.
Stretch out after a long week at the office, then knock back a pint. Stick around afterwords for a typical relaxing afternoon at the brewery.
Pizza, music, whiskey, cocktails and beer. What’s not to love? I highly recommend the beer and whiskey flight.
Sample six delicious Whalers brews paired with six unique hand crafted donuts from Matos Bakery in West Warwick. Each donut recipe is individually designed to pair with one of their beers, so don’t miss out!
Don’t forget beer releases at Proclamation and Tilted Barn as well! Plus Trillium and Tree House will probably drop something bananas.
