Boston Calling will construct two beer gardens within the festival grounds for fans to kick back in, with brews curated by Boston’s Beer Summit. Breweries pouring on-site include Boston’s very own Harpoon Brewery, Woodchuck Hard Cider from Vermont and one of the world’s leading imports from Denmark, Carlsberg.
Mark your calendars for Boston Calling, a two-day music festival to take place on City Hall Plaza on May 25 and 26. With a lineup of 18 live performances, the place will be jamming.
