Summer in Boston is a great time. And, if there's one food that we think of during this season, it's BBQ. Meat lovingly slow smoked for hours, while drinking a few craft beers...and then enjoyed with a few more. Yep, that sounds like heaven to us! Not everyone has the time or skill to smoke their own BBQ, though, so we've taken care of that part for you. Join us for the Boston Beer & BBQ Fest and you can start right at the enjoyment step! And this year, we've made it even bigger! 25 New England craft brewers and cideries along with 6 local BBQ joints. How can this be anything but great?!
