Consider this a challenge to visit a new Bay State brewery this week.

While we love supporting local breweries any time of year, March 4-11 is an especially exciting time for beer lovers.

We’re raising a glass to the return of Mass Beer Week, a community celebration of local craft beer.

Though you might not be able to check each of the 50+ participating breweries off your beer bucket list in one week, here are three spots for sipping located just outside of Boston.

🍺 Exhibit ‘A’ Brewing Company, Framingham
🍺 Mighty Squirrel Brewing, Waltham
🍺 Idle Hands Craft Ales, Malden

If you’d prefer to stick closer to the city, stop by one of Aeronaut Brewing‘s three Boston-area locations or visit Castle Island Brewing in South Boston.

Visitors can snag a limited-edition pint glass at member breweries while supplies last, design courtesy of Westborough resident Shawnna Lyons-Dambeck.
Follow @massbeerweek + @massbrewbros on social media and bookmark the events calendar to stay up to date with additional brewery programming.
