Welcome!

This website is dedicated to spreading the word about a small homebrew-only cask event held regularly in the Boston area, usually at the end of April / beginning of May (although not yet on an actual May Day). We usually decide in February if we’re going to have one and quietly spread the word. Check out our past events.

There was be no 2017 May Day Cask Festival. Here’s hoping for 2018!

We remain completely unaffiliated with (but unabashedly inspired by) the folks who put together the NERAX festival. If you like what they do, you will probably like what we’re going for.
