It’s a Thirst tradition to celebrate the best of New England by bringing distillers, brewers, and winemakers together with bartenders and enthusiasts for a big ol' party. This year, State Lines takes place in the heart of Boston's newest neighborhood for great ideas, at the Innovation Design Center.

Join us to enjoy spectacular skyline views while sipping on New England’s finest spirits, paired with carnival games and down-home fun.
