Cleanse your palates and clear your schedules: We’re throwing our first barrel-aged beer festival! On Saturday, November 3rd, we’re transforming the Norwood Space Center into a hub for barrel-aged beer. Breweries from across New England and beyond will converge to pour beers from deep within their cellars, some which have never seen the light of day until now. It’s the show-stopping showcase of beer and wood that you’ve been waiting for, and we’re stoked to bring it to ya. Tickets on sale now!
The fest will be split between two sessions, and we’ll have food vendors on hand to make sure you can stomach a few laps ’round the building. Hope to see you there!
WHEN: Saturday, November 3rd
SESSION ONE: 1-4:30pm; SESSION TWO: 6-9:30pm
FOOD: Boru BBQ (S1, S2), Speakeasy Donuts (S1), Brato Brewhouse (S1), Cuff’s Counter (S2),
COST: $60 for drinkers; $25 for Designated Drivers
Transportation: A shuttle will be provided to take festival-goers from the Commuter Rail stop and CIBC to the Space Center. Additional parking is available at the Norwood Space Center.
The Space: Community is at the crux of this festival with the venue location playing a large role. More Wood in Norwood plans to showcase the works of local artists during the festival. Event-goers can admire photography, collections from the Sneaker Museum, and memorabilia from the David Bieber archives, among other exhibits.
