A Little About Hyper-Local:

SBN’s 2nd Annual Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest, to be held again at Arts at the Armory highlights and promotes local brewers, vintners, artisan beverage makers, distillers, home brewers, and food vendors and is a major annual fundraiser for Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts Boston Local Food Program. 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.

Hyper-Local is a unique Craft Brewfest and different from our Local Craft Brew affiliated with Boston Local Food Festival (fall event). Hyper-Local not only showcases local beverage producers, but also showcases local brews incorporating local ingredients! Examples in the past have included brews made with Taza Chocolate, local hops, apples, cranberries, grapes and even local oysters! A recap on Hyper-Local 2012 can be found: here.

For those of you incorporating local ingredients into your seasonal brews, Hyper Local Brewfest is held in a great space with an awesome audience committed to supporting local entrepreneurs and local food.  At our event, patrons come to not only to taste the local abundance of brews and products made in MA and New England, but also come to network and get a chance to meet the people behind the brews and other great local products they are tasting.   It is an ideal opportunity for you to debut your early summer offerings.  Most vendors donate their products for the tastings, but we are offering a subsidy if you need it. Food vendors are expected to charge $5.00 or less per serving.
