Get the Patch!

Our Patch is given to people who have visited at least 30 of the Brewpubs in Massachusetts, tried at least one of their beers, and hiked/walked to the local attraction listed for that Brewpub.  To qualify, you must visit the nearby brewpub in the same 48 hour period as you do the associated hike. So, for instance, you can do the hike Saturday and visit the Brewpub Sunday. Or, you can go to the Brewpub Friday night and do the hike the next afternoon.  But remember, drink responsibly! 

Here is our List of Brewpubs (as of 10/18/21), and the Hike/Walk needed to complete each step in your journey.  It's updated as changes are needed.  If you have a hike you like near one of the Brewpubs that we haven't designated yet, let us know!  Once you've completed the required number of stops, you can send us your results, and get this cool Patch:

The Patch cost is $5.00.  You can send us a Money Order, Check, or pay via PayPal.  The Paypal address is the same as the email address below.  If you use Paypal, make sure you put the information requested on the form in the comments section, and mail us the completed List. The form link is above.
