Check the News section for a listing of all events, tastings, gatherings, parties, etc. We’ll be working on getting them all posted in the next day or so. There will be things going on all over Boston during the week, and it will even stretch out to other parts of the East Coast. There will also be other American brewers hanging around, as well as importers from other countries. We want you to be part of it too.
Citizens of the World was originally the name of the Shelton Brothers export program, but it has come to mean something more than just sending American beer overseas. We hope that we’ll see you at some of these events so you can experience it first hand.
