The Boston Harbor Hotel hosts its first Oktoberfest-inspired biergarten on Tuesday, September 30, featuring tastes of local craft brews and beer-centric bites by Chef Daniel Bruce. From 5:30 to 8:00 pm, the outdoor dome-shaped Pavilion at the Boston Harbor Hotel will transform into a harborside beer fest in celebration of the end of summer and coming of fall.

Owners or representatives from each brewery will be on hand to guide guests through featured brews as part of this special tasting event.
