    BeerAdvocate has organized and hosted hundreds of social gatherings, tastings, dinners, and fundraisers since its inception in 1996. This includes over 70 ticketed beer fests since 2003, ranging from 1,200 to 15,000 attendees from around the globe.

    Back in the late 1990s and early 2000s, we got tired of attending beer fests that didn't respect brewers or their beers. So, we decided to start hosting our own using our "Respect Beer" motto as the foundation and the following core rules:
    1. We'll pay for all of the beer served at our fests.
    2. We won't charge brewers booth or registration fees.
    3. Brewers can't buy their way into our fests.
    4. Brewers are required to attend to help ensure the highest level of brand representation and education possible.
    5. Listen to feedback and always strive to do better.
    The result? Here's a look at our Extreme Beer Fest from 2014:
