Fans of tart, sour, funky, wild beers will rejoice as Belmont Station brings back Puckerfest after a two-year hiatus. Last held in July 2019, Puckerfest returns for five days from August 11 – 15, 2022.
The once annual fest before COVID hit, brings together so many breweries that offer beers that make your lips pucker and may lead one to reach for a roll of Tums. Each day during Puckerfest, Belmont Station will curate a list of tart, sour, funky, wild beers. The Station will be serving hand selected taster flights or just purchase a glass pour of the beer that tickles your fancy.
Here’s a rundown on the five days of 2022 Puckerfest…
