The Autumnal Equinox marks the end of summer and the beginning of fall. What better way to start autumn off right than with craft beer at Heritage Museums & Gardens!

The Hoppy Fall Festival will feature an afternoon of craft beer tastings from 12 of the best local and hyper-local breweries on September 22 from 12 pm to 5 pm. Visitors can enjoy their favorite brews and discover new ones as they expand their knowledge with a craft beer talk and home brewing demonstration.

Outside the tasting tent, visitors and their families can listen to live music from The Oysters Duo, enjoy food from area food trucks, create a fun fall craft, play lawn games - such as cornhole and giant checkers - all while relaxing in an autumn Biergarten at the largest public garden in southern New England!

Tickets are $35 for members and $40 for non-members. This includes admission to all gardens and museum exhibits, beer tastings, a reusable souvenir tasting cup, live music, home brewing demos and talks, and access to food trucks and games.

Food is available for purchase from local area food trucks:
Wolf Pizza - Handmade pizza with local ingredients
Trolley Dogs - Specialty Hotdogs
The Local Scoop - Ice cream
The Pineapple Caper Cafe and Catering - Gourmet grilled cheese!
Cape Cod Donuts

The last pour is at 4:30 pm. Tastings happen rain or shine at the beer tent on the Parade Field. Visitors must be 21 years or older to participate in the beer tasting, and a valid ID is required.
