Easton’s Shovel Town Brewery announced on its Facebook page that it will be part of a pop-up entertainment venue and food & beer garden this summer in Brockton. The following statement was posted earlier today:
“After months of planning, we are excited to announce that we will be part of PROVA Brockton, a celebration of the city’s rich cultural heritage through local food, craft beer, family fun, arts and entertainment. Coming this Summer! Time and time again it has been proven that restaurants and breweries can be the economic spark that helps revitalize a neighborhood. PROVA provides another opportunity to demonstrate this power.”
A story in the Brockton Enterprise says that “Prova plans to establish an outdoor beer garden with craft beer, food and live entertainment on the now-flattened, vacant former Kresge department store site, which is currently owned by NeighborWorks and is slated for a residential development project. The goal is to open the beer garden beginning mid-July with operating hours from 4 to 8 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, along with a few selected Saturdays, throughout the summer season.”
Just over a year old, Shovel Town is a micro brewery and tasting room at 50 Oliver Street (rear) in Easton that offers beers on draft in flights, small tasters, pints, growlers and cans to-go. They also offer Wicked Twisted Pretzels, flatbreads, and a variety of charcuterie boards crafted with an assortment of fine cheeses, meats, and fresh breads. They were recently awarded the Metro South Chamber of Commerce Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
