No, the quarter in “quarter beer” here doesn’t refer to the quantity in the kegs, but rather the location – The Old Worthington Quarter will once again host its annual Beer Festival. Located at High Street and New England Avenue, the Quarter houses event organizers House Wine and Rivage Atlantique, as well as The Candle Lab, Elli Nail, Spa, Little Tree Studios and Graeter’s Ice Cream.

Bell’s Oatmeal Stout

New Holland’s Full Circle Kolsch
Troeg’s Dead Reckoning IPA
