I’m Thirsty!

We are pleased to introduce Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts (SBN) Local Craft Spirits Festival. This is our 7th fall event promoting local craft spirits, brews and artisan beverages. This year the Local Craft Spirits Festival is produced in collaboration with theMassachusetts Distillers Alliance and the Central Square Business Association/Central Square Cultural District. SBN is excited about our new location in Central Square Cambridge, home of the Taste of Cambridge in University Park, Cambridge.

The Local Craft Spirits Festival will gather hundreds of patrons to celebrate the makers of local spirits, artisan beverages, mead, cider and craft brews. Meet the makers behind the distilled products and artisan craft beverages, participate in cocktail demos, enjoy local food, and get to choose Boston’s best local craft Mixologist.
