Love beer? If so, you’ll want to join other craft beer aficionados at the SoWa Power Station (540 Harrison Ave.) for the Copenhagen Beer & Music Festival (Sept. 22-23). This celebrated event brings more than 50 international and domestic breweries to Boston, and features rare and coveted brews from some of the world’s most sought after breweries, including Sweden’s Stigbergets, Belgium-based Bokkereyder, Manchester, England’s Cloudwater Brew, and Mikkeller, the Copenhagen gypsy brewer. During three sessions, beer-lovers will also have the opportunity to sample some of the best brews in the United States, such as Brooklyn-based Other Half, and those from esteemed Massachusetts breweries, such as Framingham’s Exhibit ‘A,’ Everett’s Night Shift, Woburn’s Lord Hobo, and Boston-based Trillium. And what’s a beer festival without a little music? Revelers can enjoy tunes from Denmark’s vintage surf rockers, The Tremolo Beer Gut, Boston’s country-folk-punk-rock band, Tigerman WOAH, American rock band These Wild Plains, and multi-instrumentalist and psychedelic country singer Hayley Thompson-King. Tickets $65-$250, includes unlimited sampling.
