Ben & Mo - The NEWBD Crew
Beervana is an exciting time of year for the NEWBD crew. Mo and I love the beer festival season and Beervana is the most intimate setting to get your hands on some great beer. The venue is easy access for most on the south coast of MA and RI, right off the highway and plentiful parking allows for an enjoyable arrival and departure to the event.
Beervana is very well organized with great advertisement, ticket information, availability updates and site map all released in plenty of time for attendees to take full advantage. I really enjoy the two tier setting which gives you open air and a good sense of being in the middle of all the action without being to crowded. Unlike most beer festivals, the Rhodes at Pawtuxet venue gives you a chance to have a conversation with your peers and the brewers at a relatively normal volume, which is great.
