What's an "Extreme Beer"?
Extreme Beer [noun]
A beer that pushes the boundaries of brewing.
That's it. A style, alcohol content, and ingredient free definition that's flexible; as creative brewing should be.

Respect Beer.

Unlike most beer festivals, American Craft Beer Fest actually pays for all of the beer served. We also waive booth fees to further support craft brewers. To date we've spent well-over $1 million on craft beer served at our fests.
