Mass Beer Week is just around the corner (March 8 - 12) and while this year will be a bit different due to Covid-19, we can all come together for a weeklong celebration with the goal to shine a bright spotlight on the amazing craft beer made in our state.
The first year for any new business is always a challenge, but to open amidst a global pandemic – well – that’s something else entirely. Every night during Mass Beer week from 7-8pm, tune in to “Meet the Brewers Freshman Class,” for FREE, to hear from five of the state’s newly opened breweries. The interviews will be featured on Zoom for attendees who want to interact live with the brewers/hosts and ask questions, and it will also be streamed live on Mass Beer Week’s Facebook page. RSVP and receive your zoom link HERE.
You’ll meet the brewers and owners, hear their startup story, their pivots and turns, hard lessons learned, and most importantly, how you can get your hands on their beer! The brewers will also do a virtual tasting of one of their newly launched beers.
Want to drink along? Of course you do! We’ll post a shopping list in the coming weeks on what they’ll be drinking and where you can get it. Each night will be hosted by a different, well-known, Mass. beer geek.
And in very exciting news - On Tuesday March 9, I will be interviewing Faces Brewing!
