12TH ANNUAL NEW HAMPSHIRE BREWFEST CANCELLED
DUE TO COVID-RELATED HEALTH AND SAFETY CONCERNS
Portsmouth, NH (August 18, 2020) New Hampshire Brewfest organizers announced today that the 2020 New Hampshire Brewfest scheduled for October 10, 2020 would be canceled due to safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our primary concern is the health and safety of our community, including our patrons, staff, supporters, vendors and volunteers,” said Courtney Perkins, Executive Director of Prescott Park Arts Festival. “As the pandemic continues to unfold, it’s become clear that in the face of an unprecedented situation, we need to make tough choices.”
2020 will mark the first time since its inception in 2008 that the event organizers have had to cancel the New Hampshire Brewfest, New Hampshire’s premier event in NH for craft brewers from throughout New England and beyond.. The New Hampshire Brewfest is a partnership between Cisco Brewers, WHEB, the New England District of the Master Brewers Association of the Americas (MBAA), and Prescott Park Arts Festival. Proceeds from this event support both an MBAA scholarship fund and Prescott Park Arts Festival
“Brewfest will be back in 2021, with the hope that we have a lot to celebrate. We look forward to hosting Brewfest again on October 9, 2021,” stated Nick Wright, General Manager of Cisco Brewing. “We are so disappointed that this difficult decision had to be made, but we are certain that it is the right one for the Seacoast community. One of the defining characteristics of our brewers is their resilience and ability to reinvent and we will need those strengths now more than ever. These challenging times will find us all working closely together to persevere,” Wright continued.
Brewfest organizers will be contacting each dedicated and passionate patron that has already purchased their tickets over the coming weeks with various options on how to move forward.
