After a long week stuck under thick clouds and heavy winds, Saturday brought locals, visitors, and brewers from all over the country under a big white tent at Waban Park for the 2nd Annual Martha’s Vineyard Craft Beer Festival.
Beer unites us all, and Saturday was a celebration among 1,000 stranger-friends tasting, comparing, and ranking over 100 brews from all over the country.
The world’s first Hefeweizen grapefruit beer by Schofferhofer was an all-around favorite. The German-brew is 50 percent wheat beer, and 50 percent carbonated juices, and made for a refreshing, zesty, and unique blend.
In addition to the tasting, this year’s event brought in lawn games, local vendors, food, and live music from on and off Island.
