Copenhagen Beer & Music Festival will be back in Boston this September

Copenhagen Beer Festival Boston

Copenhagen Beer & Music Festival is celebrating another year as it returns to Boston this Fall. The event will be hosted on September 22 and 23, 2017 at Boston’s City Hall Plaza, which is located at 1 City Hall Square, Boston, MA 02201. Guests can look forward to rare and coveted brews from over 50 international and domestic breweries. The beer and music festival is co-produced by Mikkeller and Boston calling events, which have received reviews raving about the two-day event and was named one of the  “12 Beer Festivals You Have to Attend in 2017” by Paste Magazine. Tickets for the Copenhagen Beer & Music Festival are on sale now at their site.

Beer-lovers will have the chance to attend three sessions of beer tastings from exclusive breweries, including Sweden’s Stigbergets, Belgium-based Bokkereyder, Cloudwater Brew Co. from Manchester, England, and, of course, Mikkeller, the celebrated Copenhagen gypsy brewer. A group of some of the best breweries in the United States will be featured at the festival as well such as Brooklyn-based Other Half, 3 Floyds Brewing Co. from Munster, Indiana and Funky Buddha from Oakland Park, Florida. Additionally, the festival will present some of the most well-known breweries in Massachusetts, consisting of Framingham’s Exhibit ‘A’, Everett’s Night Shift, Woburn’s Lord Hobo, and Boston-based Trillium.

Like last year, music will be offered with performances from vintage surf rockers and Denmark natives, The Tremolo Beer Gut, Boston’s favorite beer-swigging country-folk-punk-rock band, Tigerman WOAH, American rock band These Wild Plains, and multi-instrumentalist and psychedelic country singer Hayley Thompson-King.
