Belmont Station is changing this year’s Puckerfest up a bit. In years past the beer bar had themed days, however for 2018 it will have only three days of pre-planned themed events. In doing so Belmont Station will rotate through a large assortment of tart, sour beers during the six-day Puckerfest. Each day the Station plans on having 20 of its 25 taps devoted to beers that will make you pucker. Want to know what is on tap, check out the Station’s Live Draft List.
The themed events during Puckerfest 2018 include the following three evenings of events.
