Tastes of Vermont land in Boston
On Friday, September 21, the Green Mountain State will meet the Bay State when the outdoor patio at OAK Long Bar + Kitchen is transformed into a pop-up beer garden presented by Zero Gravity Brewery, complete with picnic tables, snacks from the OAK kitchen and giant patio games like Connect 4 and Jenga. The beer list will exclusively feature four brews from the Burlington, VT brewery including this year’s Oktoberfest, a marzen lager made with all German malts and hops. Also: Green State Lager, Conehead IPA, Little Wolf Pale Ale. A selection of MA ciders will be available for non-beer drinkers.
The OAKtoberfest food menu will offer a variety of shareable bites such as jumbo Bavarian pretzels served with beer cheese, cider donuts, gourmet pigs-in-a-blanket, caramel coated popcorn (OAK’s play on cracker jack), flatbreads and more.
OAKtoberfest will take place for a limited time, open to the public daily from 4–8 p.m. starting on September 21 through the seasonal closing of OAK’s patio on Columbus Day, Monday, October 8. An official patio party will take place on Thursday, October 4 to celebrate OAKtoberfest with Zero Gravity (more details to come). Follow @oaklbk for news and photos related to the pop-up.
“Seeing the emergence of pop-up beer experiences in Boston we hear loud and clear what the people want, so it was a no brainer to transform our coveted patio space in Copley Square into a relaxed beer garden for locals to gather after work,” says Daniel Loperfido, General Manager at OAK Long Bar + Kitchen. “We’re pumped to spotlight Zero Gravity and have the Vermont beer scene represented to complement all the great beer gardens already in motion.”
“As someone who has a deeply held love for a good hotel bar, I can honestly say OAK Long Bar + Kitchen is one of the very best there is,” says Matt Wilson, Co-Founder and Director of Sales & Marketing at Zero Gravity Brewery. “We could not be more excited to be partnering with the OAK team on this year’s OAKtoberfest where we can showcase some of the finest beers from Vermont in such a fabulous setting.”
