The SoWa Beer Garden Kick-off is Sunday, May 5


Press Release / April 22, 2019 (Boston, MA) – ​The SoWa Beer Garden returns on Sunday, May 5, but with a new format for 2019. This season, SoWa will act as a rotating pop-up, set to feature some of the regions best brewers. For periods ranging from one-to-four weeks, a different brewer will take over the taps and pour a variety of beers typically reserved for their respective taprooms.

Accordingly to Bradley St. Amand, Director of Operations for SoWa, “The beer garden was a huge hit last year, but we’re always looking to keep things fresh and exciting. This approach offers the best of both worlds. We still get to showcase a huge selection of craft beers, but also provide our favorite brewers an opportunity to engage directly with a new audience that otherwise might not be able to visit their brewery.”
Kicking things off this year (May 5 + May 12) will be ​Fiddlehead Brewing Company​ out of Shelburne, Vermont. Known for crafting approachable, multidimensional beers, they’ll be pouring a collection of their biggest hits along with some exclusive brews:

● Fiddlehead IPA ● Second Fiddle – DIPA ● Mastermind – DIPA ● Ghost Hits – Pale Ale ● Rarefied Air – Pale Ale ● Fiddlehead Mexican Lager ● Tejas Morron – Brown Ale

Also – the first 55 customers will get a free Fiddlehead pint glass!
In addition to the hoppy goodness, opening day will feature live music by ​Elisa Smith & The Tiny Little Lies​, lawn games, and a variety of Boston’s favorite food trucks and carts:
● Black Magic Coffee ● Blackbird Doughnuts ● Bon Me ● Compliments ● Daddy’s Bonetown Burgers ● Eastern Standard Provisions ● Eloti Mexican Corn on the Cob ● Gogi on the Block ● Moyzilla

● Mr. Tamole ● North East of the Border ● Oath Pizza ● Shuck Food Truck ● The Chillwagon ● The Cookie Monstah ● The Chubby Chickpea ● The Dining Car ● Wild Pops
Looking ahead, future brewers will include ​SingleCut Beersmiths​, ​Finback Brewery​, ​Banded Brewing​, and more, plus special events such as a Mother’s Day rosé pop-up with ​The Urban Grape​ and the annual Oktoberfest party hosted by ​Schilling Beer Company​.

Now in its 16th season, the award-winning ​SoWa Open Market​ is Boston’s largest celebration of local art, food and music. Every Sunday from May through October, over 175 makers and thousands of visitors converge in SoWa, amidst a vibrant backdrop of artist studios, galleries, boutiques and vintage shops.
