    Heads-up! As of this post we now have 123 brewers pouring at American Craft Beer Fest this June 1 & 2 at the Seaport World Trade Center Boston!

    Epic! Jason has done a great job wrangling the lineup and is currently compiling the initial list of beers. We'll start posting them as soon as he's got a chuck entered.

    Cheers!

    Not to our knowledge, but they had the longest lines of any other brewer last year. I'm talking an insane line.

  11. Kindly reminder to everyone that this is not Pokemon and you do not need to "catch them all."

    If you refuse to take previous advice, at least remember that you can't make individual samples fight by throwing them at the ground. Although you could possibly start a fight with another fest-goer this way.

    In other news ... we've hit the 550 beer mark.

    Maybe your banner ad could use a little tweaking... I'm getting tired of having to see that guy playing with his tap handle.

    We're OK, and there's actually two ACBF banners that are evenly rotating out; amongst several other non-ACBF ads. Looks like the ad works too.

    As they say on Twitter: #firstworldproblems ;)

    I can think of worse things; depending on what beer he's pouring it might be perfectly understandable.

    So anyway ... back on topic: the ACBF beer list.

    FYI, you're missing the locations for John Harvard's and Oscar Blues.

    That's because it's a master listing. The listings in the guide will reflect locations and other distinctions.

    Looks like a great beer list, with a few breweries I have never even heard of. Should be a fun weekend!

    No Surly this year? Damn...I totally missed them last year. Really, really excited for the event.
     
  21. Surly was one of the breweries I was hoping to see on the list two along with Summit, Lakefront, Bell's and New Glarus. Those good, impossible to get in MA, small breweries!
