BEER & FOOD

There will be plenty of beer and food options to be enjoyed (food vendors to be announced). Whether you play beer favorites or enjoy tasting the season’s bountiful variety, we have two options for you to explore:

  • Tasting Ticket
    Purchase a tasting ticket and sample a variety of different Sam Adams styles at sampling bars.

  • Draft or Can
    Already know what you like? We will have both draft and can bars throughout the event to purchase a full-size beer, including favorites like Boston Lager, OctoberFest, and Rebel IPA (and a gluten free cider option) and enjoy as you go.

ACTIVITIES

We have a lot for our festival goers to do onsite, so come and enjoy a great afternoon and evening with us.

    Take a ride down our Hops Slide and feel what it’s like to get (dry) hopped up!

  • Lawn Games
    Play with a friend or make new ones at our lawn game area, featuring all the classics and maybe something new too!
