Virtual and In Person Options
We are being cautiously optimistic and planning for both virtual and in person options. In the event that we are unable to hold an in person race, all in person registrations will be converted to virtual. Until we have confirmation that we will be able to hold an in person race, registration will remain the same for both options. Those who sign up early for in person at the reduced rate will not be required to pay an additional fee. Upon permission from the state and town for an in person event, the in person registration cost will be raised.
Regardless of what event you choose you will still received the same swag. We are currently evaluating whether awards will be separated between virtual and in person and will be providing more information shortly so stay tuned.

About Rapscallion Brewery
An Old English word meaning "a playfully mischievous individual," we adopted the name Rapscallion from a special line of beers within Concord Brewery's portfolio when we became its fourth ownership group in 2007. As two young brothers from humble beginnings and a long line of small business owners, the name appealed to us for its history, its uniqueness and most of all its association with rebelliousness. We've always cheered for the underdog, the self-made man and the Robin Hoods of the world, because we believe in living with humility, working hard, and giving back. Nearly a decade later, the name "Rapscallion" continues to hold true as a moniker of a model which is defiantly small: Rapscallion is a MA-only microbrewery that puts freshness, quality and consistency above all else, honoring the craft, the Rapscallion customer and the communities we call home.
Decidedly local, we believe that beer should reflect the uniqueness of its region and native ingredients, which is why we partner with local farms for our hops and the honey in our flagship beer. Similarly, at our restaurant we strive to serve the freshest food made with local ingredients. From fresh locally caught seafood to farm fresh produce, we take pride in supporting local farms and small purveyors and let the results speak for themselves.
Likewise, both our tap room and restaurant are places to mix with the local people, so it's no surprise that both locations are likened to publick houses of the past. In an industry and broader market that continue to grow at a head-spinning rate, we will remain defiantly small, committing ourselves to our local community and leaving room for others to prosper in theirs. Proudly housed in a historic barn and farmhouse, we aim to sustain a tradition of hard work and time-tested recipes dating back over a century.
