Boston Beer and BBQ Fest is coming back! This year is bigger and better and we can't wait to join you all this summer. Why Join Us At Boston Beer & BBQ Fest? Why NOT to join us, that's really the question! It's smoked meat and local craft beer and cider. Do you really need more than that? If you do need more info, though, we can tell you that the Boston Beer & BBQ Fest focuses on New England-made craft beers and ciders as well as showcasing some of the best local BBQ joints around. By attending you'll have access to over 70 craft beers and ciders, as well as mountains of BBQ. Honestly, now tell us...what more do you need to know?!
