Discussion in 'BeerAdvocate Fests' started by horshack7, Jun 6, 2014.
I was wondering what the fall beer fest is going to be this year?
I believe that this year's Beer for Beasts has been moved to the fall.
I was not quite sure if it was still going to be the Belgian or something else but that is good to know.
Would be nice to know dates for anything in the works that may not yet be announced
I expect that if the date were known, the fest would be announced.

Our next event Beer for Beasts in Brooklyn, NY on Sep 13.
For several reasons, there's currently no plans to host a fest in Boston this fall.
No BBF/NOTF this year?!?!?!?
I was wondering the same thing. No Belgian this year??
Has a date been set for ACBF in 2015?
this is upsetting the belgian NOTF was the most awesome festival last year. Fio those of us not on the ipa trail this is a nirvana.
I didn't see a Belgian Beer Fest this year. Did I miss it?
I am not sure about the fest. But if it happens then I want to join there. So anyone please tell me the place and time of the fest. Thank you. Cheers!!
Because it's an FAQ, here are some of the reasons why we're no longer hosting Belgian Beer Fest and moved venues for our other Boston-based fests.
We outgrew the venue + the venue kept on raising fees and lowering our capacity
BBF was our least popular fest; we've been feeling the waning enthusiasm in recent years
Lack of support from Belgian brewers
Lack of support from some importers; but thanks to those who did; you know who you are
Fest was becoming too American-Belgian-style and samey
Imported Belgian beer's aren't cheap; the wholesaler markups are insane
Could it return? We've killed BBF before, and brought it back (as "Return of the BBF"), however, I don't see it coming back soon or in its previous format.
@Jason and I would like to once again thank everyone who supported BBF in the past. We're using the break this fall to focus on improving our existing fests and work on one or two new concepts.
