The What, Where and How of the Martha’s Vineyard Craft Beer Festival

BY VINEYARD SQUARE HOTEL | 10 August 2018
Picture yourself on an island where craft beer, cider, and wine are flowing. Your friend is deep in conversation about flavor profiles with a brewery rep, and you’re trying to decide between joining a lively game of corn hole or digging into a plate of Vineyard Caribbean Cuisine. If it sounds like a craft beer enthusiast’s dream come true, it’s because it is. Welcome to the Martha’s Vineyard Craft Beer Festival, your new reason to be island-bound in September.

The What, Where, and How of the Martha’s Vineyard Craft Beer Festival

 

What’s Up?

 

Beer. Food. Fun. That’s basically it. The fine print? Unlimited tastes of over 150 craft beers, ciders, and more, served up by brewery reps eager to talk hops. Pair your sips with beer snacks from local vendors and live entertainment. It’s like heaven for self-proclaimed beer snobs, with a souvenir glass to bring home.

 

But Where?

 

Follow the sound of keg tapping to Waban Park in Oak Bluffs. Take note that there’s no parking whatsoever on-site. Designated Drivers get a reduced ticket price, and you can take the bus, but there’s a way better way to have your beer and drink it too…

 

Ok, How?

 

The Martha’s Vineyard Craft Beer Festival Package. Your two night stay includes two tickets to the festival and transportation there and back with Adam Cab, so you don’t have to worry ’bout a thing.

 

What Else?

If you’re feeling extra fancy, there’s a VIP ticket that gives you early access to all the amazing brews (as well as some exclusive elixirs). One thing you can count on no matter which ticket you choose? Going home with a new favorite beer you’d never tried before this event. 

 

Making an entire weekend out of your festival experience? Extend your taste testing and kick back at Bad Martha Farmer’s Brewing for a pint and a bite, or hop off the craft beer train altogether to explore the other ways our island keeps visitors entertained.
