Beer & Collaborators

Pat-Rye-Ot
Northeast & Mid-Atlantic Collaborators
Pat-Rye-Ot is an “old-meets-new” take on a pale ale by brewers all located in the original 13 colonies. It features rye and apples, which were among the first ingredients used by American brewers in the colonies, alongside bold American hops—hallmarks of our modern craft beer “revolution.”

At The Festival

Live Music:

Nemes

Nemes (pronounced knee•miss) has made its mark on the Boston music scene by playing everywhere from subway stations to highly revered rock venues. Released in the fall of 2015, their debut studio full-length album, "I Carry Your Heart," has lifted the band out of the subway and onto the main stage. The album was co-produced and mixed by Rick Kwan (Jim James, My Morning Jacket) and funded by a combination of busking, gigging, and crowdfunding. Nemes also just won “Best in MA” in the New England Music Awards.
Music will begin at 2:30pm

Food Trucks:

Penny Packers, Sheherazad, Posto Mobile, Bacon Truck, Chicken & Rice Guys, Chili Mango & Lime, Bon Me, Frozen Hoagies, Moyzilla, & Taco Party.
