Cambridge Brewing Company experiments with hops and barrel-aging processes to create house beers on-site. You don’t have to look hard to catch a glimpse of their brewing tanks and kettles—they’re as much a part of the décor as the exposed-brick walls and pine accents.

The Boston Wine Expo’s Grand Tasting event unites varietals from nearly 200 wineries around the world with cuisine from more than 40 local eateries during four hours of culinary harmony. Attendees can sip more than 1,000 red and white elixirs culled from the grape-producing and wild-cork-taming regions of North America, Europe, the Southern Hemisphere, and the Mediterranean. Samples from Boston-area restaurants such as Ruth’s Chris Steak House and Sandrine’s Bistro complement each swig as vintners enlighten enophiles on current winemaking trends. Throughout the afternoon, top gastronomic maestros tread two stages during live demonstrations that divulge recipes and directions for finding the secret compartment hidden inside every wine bottle. Lifestyle exhibits and a full schedule of seminars enlighten guests on topics ranging from cheese-and-wine matching to the diversity of Italian varietals (not included with this Groupon). A portion of the event’s proceeds will benefit local charities.

The processes of brewing beer and making wine may seem intimidating, but with help from Barleycorn's Craft Brew, they're simple. Onsite workshops begin with the clients selecting what beverage they'd like to create. Thanks to the facility's inventory of more than 130 beer styles, and 14 wines, there are plenty of options. Then, workshop participants measure out the necessary ingredients, pours them into a steam-fired copper kettle, and stirs the mixture. The liquid is flash cooled and transferred to a fermenting vessel. Several weeks later, brewers and vintners return to bottle and label their finished products. More experienced visitors can stop by Barleycorn's for homebrewing supplies, including 5-gallon kits.
