Braggotfest

When: Sat., June 24, 3-9 p.m. 2017

The guys at Bellwether are at it again with their latest beer collaboration, offering beer lovers the chance to try historically inspired ales made with and by other local beer makers during Saturday’s Braggotfest. Braggot, for those unaware, is a fermented alcoholic beverage made from grain and honey. Created by ancient Celtic and Nordic cultures, it was enjoyed by peasants and nobility alike. For the evening beer fest, Bellwether is pouring a brew made with Young Buck Brewing and Hierophant Meadery; it contains a merlot barrel-aged gruit ale blended with Hierophant’s vanilla poplar mead. Attendees of the one-night event can also sample special braggots from six local guest breweries; in all, there will be 10 versions on tap. The $15 entry includes a commemorative mug and six drink tickets. Extra tickets are $2 each, or three for $5.
