Our craft beer festival is BACK–complete with brews, bands, and bites! Nearly two dozen craft breweries from across New England will provide visitors an opportunity to sample and purchase some of the region’s top beers and ales. At four indoor and outdoor stages, nine musical artists and bands will bring the sounds of Americana, bluegrass, country, folk and roots music to Old Sturbridge Village.

For those who are 21 and over, your admission to the Village includes a limited number of complimentary 2-oz samples of beer.  We will be checking IDs for everyone who wants to participate in the beer tasting so make sure to have a valid photo ID with you. You may also purchase additional full pours or sample cards.

PLEASE NOTE: The Museum is open for special hours on July 20, 2019, due to this event. The Village will be open from noon to 8:00 pm. On July 21, 2019, the Village will be open regular hours (9:30 am to 5:00 pm) but beer will not be available until when allowed by Massachusetts State law. 

*Those with free admission passes to the Village and Sturbridge residents get free admission as usual, but must purchase beer sample tickets if they wish to sample beer.

Check back at a later date for a list of breweries and bands!
