Octoberfest with Hopsters: Grand Craft Beer Tasting

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

In Germany, Octoberfest is officially held in the last weeks of September. We are honoring that tradition, plus paying homage to local craft brews, by teaming up with Hopsters Alley to bring you an all-local craft beer tasting. Ask any Bostonian their favorite beer and 99% of the time they'll answer with a craft brand. Chances are you've already tasted many of the most well-known craft beers, but we're guessing that there are literally dozens of smaller New England brands that you've never even heard of! Each of these craft breweries has their own styles, flavors, and stories - and they're all here, at Hopsters Alley at The Boston Public Market - just waiting for you to taste them.

On September 30th, 2017 - let's cheers to autumn (arguably the best season in this town) with a brew fest that celebrates the local beer companies that have revolutionized the industry and restored brewing as a neighborhood business.

Join Hopsters Alley and 10+ local breweries, plus other Boston Public Market vendors for the Hopsters Grand Craft Beer Tasting.

Breweries will be updated soon.

Tasting companies that have participated in the past:

  • Portico Brewing Company
  • Night Shift Brewing
  • Jack's Abbey Craft Lagers
  • Hopsters Brewery
  • Von Trapp Brewing

Feeling peckish? In additon to tasting beers, we'll have Boston Public Market vendors sampling festive foods:

  • Appleton Farms cheese with Somerville Bread Co. bread
  • Crescent Ridge pumpkin ice cream (which can be used for mini beer floats at the event!!)
  • Chestnut Farms fresh smoked kielbasa
  • Taza Chocolate Pumpkin & Cranberry Chocolate

Tickets: $9 for Current Trustees Members and $15 for General Tickets (non-Trustees tickets) - each ticket recieves a take-home glass. We HIGHLY recommend buying a ticket in advance because we will sell out.
