The goal of the New England Brewfest has always been to attract craft beer enthusiasts from across New England to enjoy a wide variety of regional craft beers in the mountain each June. With that goal in mind, it is with great regret that the Western White Mountains Chamber of Commerce, host of the New England Brewfest scheduled for June 2021, has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2021 event. This decision was not an easy one for us to make this year as we haven’t celebrated great beer since 2019!
Hopefully by early summer many of us will be fully vaccinated and the pandemic will be in much better control, but after consulting with various members in our community, staging a large tasting event that attracts large crowds from many communities would be unsafe and irresponsible. As always, we’ll do what is best for the safety and well-being of our community. It is also our obligation to abide by the guidelines and restrictions implemented by the State of New Hampshire.
We hope everyone stays safe and healthy, and that travel will resume back to some normalcy in the coming months. In the meantime, please support your local breweries by purchasing craft beer and hosting your own at home tasting events!
