10th Annual Stoutfest Breakfast 4/6 @ Armsby Abbey

3 Rare Stouts / 3 Epic Courses / 1 World Class Brewer

We like the element of surprise so beyond this you’ll just have to trust us and make your own assumptions.

If you have been fortunate enough to attend any of the NINE previous Stoutfest breakfasts, then you already know this will be nothing short of amazing! Your wake-up call will be provided by Iggy’s in Cambridge and Armeno Coffee Roaster’s out of Northboro, while Chef Sean Dacey puts the final touches on your meal. The three stouts offered during this breakfast, will ONLY be offered to guests at this breakfast.

As if imbibing 3 amazing stouts wasn’t enough, once the breakfast concludes, each guest is not only guaranteed a seat for the Stoutfest tapout when doors open to the public at noon, but will also have access to our 2019 Stoutfest tees and the first pour of all 22 hand-picked stouts!

Tickets go on sale Thursday, March 21, 2019, via Eventbrite only at 7PM.

Since Armsby Abbey opened on August 1, 2008, it has become recognized as one of the top craft beer destinations in the world, receiving accolades from top publications such as Beer Advocate, Wine Enthusiast, and DRAFT Magazine. With a rotating selection of 22 world-class draughts and extensive cellared bottle selection that follows suit, coveted breweries such as Hill Farmstead, Trillium, Cantillon, De Ranke, De Struise and De la Senne, to name but a few, are proud to have their breweries represented at Armsby Abbey.



The bar program at Armsby Abbey offers guests a seasonally-inspired cocktail menu that utilizes only the freshest ingredients available. In the summer the cocktail menu changes often, focusing on the abundant flavors local farms and orchards have to offer, from that first red strawberry in May to that last pumpkin in November we celebrate our local producer’s bounty!
