The Beer Lineup http://www.beeradvocate.com/ebf/beer/ Disclaimers: All booths will be manned by brewery staff. The beer lineup is the same for all three sessions, however, all beers are subject to change and availability. Pours are 2 ounces (or less) in accordance with MA State Law. Please consume with respect. Please be advised that some of the beers poured at EBF may contain allergens. Ask before you drink. Note that there will be some beers pouring that didn't make the list. Respect Beer. We're all about having fun as we explore beer, but by observing these simple rules and noting a few practical policies, you can increase your enjoyment and learn how to truly "Respect Beer." Appreciate what you're drinking. Note the beer's appearance, smell and taste. Savor it. Pace yourself, and find out what the ABV of a beer is before you consume. Drink for flavor, not just for impact. We've said it before, but it's worth repeating: water is your friend. Drink plenty of it to help detoxify and counteract the alcohol stripping water from your system. Eating also replenishes the system, slows down your rate of consumption, and helps to absorb alcohol so you don’t find yourself inebriated after a few (extreme) beers. Speaking of Food & Water ... http://www.beeradvocate.com/ebf/food/ Don't forget to buy a bite from one of our awesome EBF food vendors. You'll thank us later. And we'll be selling bottles of water at the BeerAdvocate booth for $1 a bottle. Stay hydrated, friends. Beer Fest Line Etiquette Believe it or not, you're not the only person at EBF. Look around. There are thirsty people surrounding you. And if you follow these simple tips, you'll go from an inconsiderate beer fest noob to courteous veteran in three easy steps! Get your sample, say thanks, and move so others can do the same. If someone has to ask you if you’re in line, and you're not, you're in the way. Move! However, if you feel compelled to talk to a brewer, or ask a question about a beer, and it's going to take more than 5 seconds ... please move to the side to geek out. That's it. Cheers to you, courteous beer fest pro. Thanks for your support, and we'll see you at #ExtremeBeerFest! Hosted by BeerAdvocate. Sponsored by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. Don't accept (l)imitations.
