Beer or Wine?
The choice is yours as next month there will be the Beer Summit and Wine Riot falling on the same weekend. Thank goodness it’s a long one for most of us as Marathon Monday will also be going down.
What is Beer Summit? The Boston Beer Summit is an annual sampling event that brings over 50 of the worlds best brewers, with over 200 different beers to the Park Plaza Castle in Boston. We have great music, great beer, and a great time on Marathon weekend in April.

Wine Riot!, is an expo-style tasting event in Boston’s South End featuring over 250 wines. The Riot! will give drinkers ranging from curious new customers to enthusiastic collectors the unique opportunity to sample, mix and mingle with wine experts from around the globe. Wine Riot! will expand attendees’ wine knowledge through a printed wine guide, mobile technology, free mini-seminars, and forty fantastic exhibitors.
More wine knowledge will be dropped during free Crash Courses Seminars hosted by sponsors throughout the Riot! sessions, dishing in-depth explanations of specific grapes, regions, and growing trends. Rioters can stop in for complimentary guided tastings and head back to the main floor equipped with stellar tips and know-how to help them face any wine list, party or store.
Tickets are now on sale and will soon be available in wines stores around Boston.
