[Giveaway] Eat Local, Drink Local, Be Local: Local Craft Brewfest

[The Giveaway is CLOSED - Scroll to the end to see the winner!]

Note: Boston Local Food Festival has offered me a pair of tickets to the 3rd Annual Local Craft Brewfest to give away to one lucky reader!  Details on how to enter to win are at the bottom of this post.



We mainly talk about food on this blog, but we really love our local brews, too. Did you know you can support one while enjoying the other? 

This is the third year of the Boston Local Food Festival, and Sunday, 10/7 will be a day where local restaurants offer up tasty bites prepared with things made right here in New England, experts teach us things during demos, and tons of local food love goes around. You may remember that at last year's fest, we did a pickling demo! 

Since BLFF is free for all to attend, part of the funds that go to support the event come from the Local Craft Brewfest. Tons of local breweries, meaderies, and wineries come together at the Courthouse on the Waterfront to sample their wares, all in the name of local love. Lyn and I attended the Hyper Local Brewfest in June, and had a great time tasting, talking, and discovering some new local favorites. Though there's a lot of people, there's also a lot of vendors, and lines move speedily so you can taste to your heart's (or liver's) content. Local food purveyors will also be on hand.


Expect goodies from:

  13. My favorite local (and currently seasonal) brew is Cape Ann's Pumpkin Stout. Especially when it's filtered through coffee beans and vanilla, a special batch I consumed a year or two ago at the brewpub in Gloucester.
