Our friends over at ORANJE are in need of some awesome volunteers to help with event duties for the night of September 22nd.
ORANJE would not be possible with out the assistance of all of the wonderful volunteers.  It is the combined efforts of everyone involved in ORANJE, which makes the event special and your assistance is greatly appreciated.

All persons who volunteer for ORANJE prior to the event for a minimum of four (4) hours will be given one (1) general admission ticket to ORANJE 2012.  Volunteers assisting with promotions/marketing and/or photography, videography/multimedia will be given free access to the events at which you volunteer.  Volunteers will meet up with an ORANJE Volunteer Coordinator at a specified location and will be given an agenda at the beginning of their shift. Volunteers are expected to diligently and professionally complete all tasks to which they are assigned.

2nd Annual Mass Brewers Fest

An easy math equation:

20 Massachusetts breweries + gorgeous Seaport location = one perfect end to summer.

On September 2 at 6pm, we’ll be joining the Massachusetts Brewers Guild and 20 of our local breweries at the World Trade Center Head House Concourse for a finale to the summer. The event pulls together everything we love and support – local breweries,local brews, local musicians, and our gorgeous city as the backdrop. The Boston Craft Beer scene has been a bit rocky the past couple of weeks with the law changes and it is time to celebrate. We are extremely lucky for this community and the great brewers we have here, so let’s support them with an incredible event! Some information from the press release,

Featuring more than 80 different beers from 20+ member breweries in the Massachusetts Brewers Guild, the Mass Brewers Fest will provide the opportunity for local beer lovers to sample summertime favorites as well as some specialty beers brewed exclusively for this festival by the brewers in the Commonwealth.  On the harbor, with city skyline views, the live music and a broad selection of delicious beers made in the Bay State will make for a delightful evening for all those attending. This is a great way to kick off Labor Day weekend!

The Mass Brewers Fest will begin at 6:00 pm on Friday, September 2, 2011 at the World Trade Center Head House Concourse, located at 200 Seaport Boulevard, Boston.  Tickets are a great value at $35, with a souvenir cup and beer samples included. The first 500 beer lovers to purchase a ticket will receive a discounted ticket price of $29.  For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit the Massachusetts Brewers Guild website atwww.massbrewersguild.org.

We had a quick chat with Matt Lambo, the MBG Events Director (as well as Cisco Brewery, Triple 8 Distillery, Nantucket Vineyards, and all around busy man) about why he loves this event and what he’s excited for this year. “My favorite part of last year was such a supportive showing from the beer drinkers of Mass! People showed up in droves with super enthusiasm for our local breweries. The breweries showed up ready to rock and a great time was had by all despite some ominous weather from Hurricane Earl! This year we are expecting the same enthusiasm with beautiful late summer evening weather. Sunset and city skyline views with great local beer from MA and great local music from Three Day Threshold! This venue is the best in the city and our guests will be blown away by the gorgeous venue, the delicious beer and super music.”

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the point where we all get together and do the ‘no rain’ dance. Sound good? Matt’s enthusiasm for the event is equally matched by Kier Byrnes, frontman of Three Day Threshold, who also played the fest last year. “Best part? Getting to try all the beer. We go to a lot of beer fests and its different than your average beer fest because its part outdoors, and even in the torrential rain we had last year, because of it being held at this outdoor pavilion at the World Trade Center, there was no rain or wind; we all stayed dry, happy and had plenty to of beers to try out. And drink them we did!”

I think these two have given you both reason enough to buy tickets, so stop waiting – grab them today! If you are one of the first 500 beer lovers, your ticket is $29! Come on, bargain shoppers! After that, tickets are $35 and 100% worth it. Hope to see you there!
