Most of the best locally-made spirits are available right here, at Hopsters Alley in the Boston Public Market and on Sunday, December 3, you can taste, try (and perhaps buy) these high-quality spirits just in time for your holiday get-together and New Year’s Eve to make your bar cart the envy of all your friends.

Join us on December 3 from 1:00-3:00 pm for the Hopsters Grand Spirits Tasting to try spirits from all over the state and region and learn about our local Massachusetts and New England-based distilleries. Experience a variety of liquors from 6+ distilleries.
