Celebrate March Madness with a Pop-Up Brew Pub on Pratt Street

As if March Madness coming to Hartford wasn’t exciting enough, now you can celebrate before and after the games in a way that’s never been done before in the city.

Since the NCAA Tournament is making a return to Hartford for the first time since 1998, the city wanted to curate something special and enticing for the fans.

So to continue the celebration and welcome people who are traveling from all over to see the games, Pratt Street (adjacent to the XL Center) will be having a ‘Pop-up Brew Pub’, featuring Hartford’s local breweries, distilleries, live music, art performances, and local vendors.
