New England Real Ale eXhibition

The longest running Real Ale Festival in the United States, proudly serving an outstanding selection of rarely seen, award-winning cask ales.


We serve over 100 firkins of Real Ale and Cider, comprised of over 50 British beers from England, Scotland, and Wales; and over 50 American beers, mostly from New England. All the beers are cask-conditioned, served by gravity or hand-pump.
