Due to 90 percent heavy rains and strong winds predicted on Saturday, October 12, the Sustainable Business Network’s Local Craft Spirits Festival has been rescheduled to Saturday, October 19, from 4 to 7 p.m., in Central Square, Cambridge, with VIP ticket holders entering at 3:30 p.m. The event is Boston’s premier spirits festival focusing on New England craft distilleries and brews. 

Sample New England’s best artisan beverages from more than 25 craft spirits-makers, winemakers, cider-makers and craft brew-makers, all of whom will offer an expansive variety of locally crafted cider, gin, wine, vodka, rum, bourbon, whiskey, bitters, beer and more. In addition, vendors will be serving a variety of unique and interesting artisan beverages. The event is presented in collaboration with the Massachusetts Distillers Alliance, Central Square Business Association, Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources, Samuel Adams, Green Mountain Energy, GetAround, Natural Awakenings, and with support from Brookfield Properties.

Local restaurants will present delicious and creative fusions of local flavor and will price each item at $7 or less. Cocktail gurus will share special tricks of the trade with their cocktail demos, and pros will compete during the Local Craft Cocktail Throwdown for bragging rights over who can mix Boston’s best local craft cocktail. A DJ will keep the audience energized throughout the evening, but patrons can also chill out with fun games and a photo booth.

Attendees will receive plenty of tasting tickets to try cocktails and alcoholic beverage products. Unlimited tastings of non-alcoholic beverages will also be offered.
