    Unless there is more information somewhere I havent seen -- are we sure this is a fest? Or maybe this is just a curated one-off or subscription box. I would think the latter would be more likely considering the post...

    While there will be online components, this isn't a virtual event. There's no scheduled dates and times to open the beers. Enjoy the box of beers at your leisure!

    Aardwolf has done our fests in the past, so I reached out to Preben.

    I am 100% on board with this - not as a replacement for in-person festivals, but as another way we can share, experience, talk about, and respect beer. :slight_smile:

    I love these events - I'd buy a box a month if they were offered. Any time I get the opportunity to try magnificent beers, I take it - I am a beer nerd opportunist!

    It was a fantastic 2-day, stay at home, crazy drinkfest. Mind-blowing Japanese Brazilian women created stout. Nuff said.

    Very interested and looking forward to seeing the lineup!

    Curious about the price - is it going to be in line with the previous boxes? More? Less? I guess if the box automatically covers a year of the Society Membership, then that's a $20 savings, so there is that to consider.

    Not sure if this would be possible, but I really enjoyed the Discord chat in the past during the virtual festivals, so maybe we could "schedule" an informal Discord hang out session to talk about the beers? Just an idea.
