A massive beer festival is coming to Boston this summer, and it’s got nothing to do with Harpoon or Sam Adams.
Sierra Nevada’s “Beer Camp Across America” pulls in to Boston on June 18, and the Chico, California-based craft brewery just announced the venue will be none other than City Hall Plaza.
Advanced tickets for the festival, which will run from 1 to 5 p.m., just went on sale – $50 for general admission ($65 when the sale ends) and $70 for the privilege of getting in an hour earlier than everyone else ($85 when the sale ends). Advanced tickets are available while supplies last.
As we explained previously:
In 2015, the first Beer Camp event featured a mixed 12-pack showcasing brewing partnerships between Sierra Nevada and a dozen different breweries. This year, however, the format has changed: The 2016 box of brews include two bottles of six beers, representing select regions across the country.
Our region is formidable, comprising the following brewers:
Esther and JC Tetreault of Trillium will be joined by Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head; Sierra Nevada brewers Ken and Brian Grossman; Sean Lawson, purveyor of Lawson’s Finest Liquids in Warren. Vt.; Carol Stoudt, brewmaster of Stoudts Brewing Co. in Adamstown, Penn.; and Jason Oliver of Devils Backbone Brewing Co. in Roseland, Va.
Those six standout craft brewers will create a “Pat-Rye-Ot” Revolutionary Pale Ale (pictured above), seeing how they’re all members of the original 13 colonies and all.
