Germany may boast of its Hofbrauhaus and its annual Oktoberfest, but Wellesley will respond this fall with its Craft Beer Tasting event on the Sunset Terrace of the Wellesley Country Club on September 29th from 4-6 p.m. So the beer steins might be a tad smaller than in Munich, but the variety of craft beers available to savor plus the delicious hors d’oeuvres will more than suffice. Local specialty beers will be on offer during the evening, a tribute to the following creative brewers of New England.
Brewing out of Portland, Maine, Peak Organic prides itself on providing innovative flavors and, as they describe it, “contemporary takes on the traditional styles of beer.” They collaborate with Maine farmers who produced the first harvest of hops in Maine since 1880.
