Five years ago, the Power Beer Fest introduced the greatest gathering of Massachusetts breweries under one roof — and it returns to Boston on Saturday, May 14. 

For the first time this year, the Power Beer Fest will take place at the Cyclorama events venue in the heart of the South End. There will be two sessions, from 1 to 4:30 p.m. and 6 to 9:30 p.m. Ticket holders will have access to unlimited samples from 40 local breweries during each session, including Tree House, Vitamin Sea, Channel Marker, the Brewery at Four Star Farms, and more. Check out the brewery lineup below.


From juicy IPAs to tart sours and luscious stouts, there will be beers for every taste. Food will include options from Brato Brewhouse + Kitchen, Eastern Standard Provisions, and Wild Fox Pierogi. Bring an empty canteen to fill up on cold, filtered still and sparkling water at the Bluedrop Water Station.

The Power Beer Fest is the biggest annual fundraiser for the Mass. Brewers Guild, a nonprofit organization that works to protect and promote the interests of craft brewers across the Commonwealth. Tickets are $55 and $10 for designated drivers.
