On Wednesday, November 16, Eater will present the 2016 Eater Awards, our seventh annual celebration of all that's made the restaurant world run — and run wild — in the past year.
Winners will be selected in five categories on both the local and national levels, and voting in the fourth category begins right now: Boston’s Brewery of the Year, highlighting breweries that either opened, expanded, or underwent a major change in 2016.
Cast your vote for this year’s Brewery of the Year below. (Voting is now closed for the first three categories, Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, and Stone Cold Stunner. Stay tuned for the winners.)
Learn more about the breweries: Idle Hands Craft Ales | Night Shift Brewing | Notch Brewing Co. | Trillium Brewing Company | Winter Hill Brewing Company
Here's how the voting works this year: Eater editors in each city have named nominees for each of five major categories. Editors will pick a winner in each category — those will be announced on November 16 — and readers will vote to award one nominee in each category with a readers’ choice award. Ready to play your part? This poll will be open for 24 hours (until 11 a.m. on Friday, November 11); voting irregularities will be strictly policed. Come back each day this week to vote in the rest of the categories.
