The 7th Annual Hyper Local Craft Beer Festival takes place at University Park in Central Square Cambridge. The event is a fundraiser sponsored by the Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts that “highlights and promotes local brewers of beer, newly established breweries, cider & mead, artisan beverage makers, and local food vendors.” The term “Hyper-local” means that not only are all the brewers from New England, but also all of the ingredients used to brew their beer are local. A ticket to the event will get participants unlimited beer samples as well as access to live music performances and food vendors. Proceeds from the event will support The Boston Local Food Program — a non-profit dedicated to providing access to healthy foods for all people while promoting local food producers, farmers, and entrepreneurs.
