Some beer fests won't have cider...this is NOT one of them.

"The times they are a-changin'!" We started our first beer fest back in 2012 with one cidery. Since then, cider has exploded and we've led the way for beer fests in Boston, including it in some of the city's finest. Well, we think it's time cider got a bit higher billing. Introducing Drink Craft Beer's first annual Beer & Cider Fest! 15 New England craft breweries, 10 New England cideries - 25 in total!
