The New England Real Ale eXhibition was founded in Underbones at Redbones with a few firkins of cask-conditioned beers in 1997. After that we moved to the George Dilboy VFW Post in Davis Square, who hosted us for years as NERAX grew to become the largest continuously running Real Ale festival in the United States. Our next festival will take place near Union Square at Aeronaut Urban Farmhouse and Brewery on March 26 to 29, 2014. We expect to serve over 100 beers and ciders from the UK, Germany, and New England!
Cask-conditioning is the traditional way to serve beer. The beer is never filtered, frozen, or filled with fizz. The cool temperature and natural carbonation allows the full flavors of these artisanally brewed beers to emerge. Real Ale is the real deal, made to be enjoyed with your friends. To learn more, we have a special Tutored Tasting session from 5-6 pm on Thursday evening with our guest Steve Crossland from Loch Ness Brewing in Scotland.
Tickets will be available online until Tuesday night March 25, and after that a limited number of admissions will be available at the door.
