We SMELL: A Celebration of Hops at the Return of Drink Craft Beer Springfest

 

The Best in New England-made Beer Returns to Space 57

We have waited and waited…and waited for Spring to finally make its grand return to Boston.  Other than warm weather (and grass!) we have also been anxiously awaiting the return of the Drink Craft Beer team – who has made Space 57 the home of their quarterly beer festivals.  Spring is the time when hops just start to grow and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate that than a fest celebrating hops themselves. This year, Drink Craft Beer has challenged the brewers to come up some news ways of celebrating hops.

Why Join Us At Springfest?

Drink Craft Beer Springfest focuses on New England-made beers that feature one of our favorite ingredients, hops! By attending, you’ll be able to sample 80+ beers from 25 of New England’s best craft brewers, each one of them bringing at least one hop-focused brew! Many of these are being made specifically for this event or will be released there. Additionally, you can sample and purchase food from several local food vendors.

These events almost always sell out so buy early…and while you’re at it, book an overnight stay with us so you can just take the elevator home after you get all hoppy.

We TASTE: We’ve Gone to Bed with Neuro

Get into bed with Neuro SLEEP and you'll never want to get out

Sleep. Is there really anything more important than it? At Revere, we strive to offer the best sleep possible in every guestroom for every guest (it’s all about heads in beds and we’ve seen our fair share of time differences that aren’t easy to shake!)  From a customizable pillow menu to luxurious linens and a second to none mattress we thought we had covered it all…that is until we got into bed with Neuro SLEEP.

Neuro SLEEP, is the first scientifically-based functional beverage that gives you the full night’s rest you need the natural way. Forget sugary additives and non-existent nutrients, Neuro SLEEP serves up the highest quality nature-derived ingredients that help you rest and recharge without the morning drag caused by traditional sleep aids.

Here’s the skinny (and we mean skinny – the drink on has 35 calories!) Neuro SLEEP is a non-carbonated blend of natural peach and apricot flavors containing melatonin, L-theanine, magnesium, and 5-HTP to lull you into a deep, relaxing sleep that leaves you feeling refreshed and ready to take on your next day in Boston…with all that the city has to offer, you need all the rest and relaxation you can get.

Still skeptical? Not to worry, over the next six weeks we’re stocking every guestroom with complimentary bottles of Neuro SLEEP.  Now all you have to do is check in to check out our new favorite “drink with a purpose.”  Trust us, once you get into bed with Neuro, you’ll never want to get out.
