There is nothing like all you can drink beer, let alone craft beer. With sixteen craft  breweries from all over the New England (with a few surprise guests!), two renowned Boston-based food trucks, and great performances from some killer bands, the first annual WGBH Craft Beer Festival got off to a fantastic start.

Craft breweries introduced over 800 Bostonians to the finer side of beer by serving over 50 different varieties of beer made from the finest ingredients. Guests were also able to converse with brewery representatives who offered a wide array of knowledge on their selection of brews. Guests were not only educated on the beer they were drinking, but were also able observe beer being brewed on site by ‘GBH’s friends at the Homebrew Emporium.

Fans of the Masterpiece blockbuster Downton Abbey flocked to WGBH Studios in their best 1920s costumes for an evening of fine food, discussion of the era and the Potted Palm music typical of the times. 

The program for the evening offered a demonstration in popular dance from that era, a performance by the Ocean State Serenaders (click on "Listen" above), and a lesson in proper cocktail assembly, perfect for those nights when fans decide to spend an evening at home watching Season Three again on DVD

Special thanks to Margarita Martinez, host of WGBH's Neighborhood Kitchens, for playing emcee for our event.
