    How much will tickets cost (Is there just one tier, or multiple?), how many will they be capped-at, and what exactly does that include (for one day of choice of the two?, how are pours counted, et cetera)? How many different specimens of extreme beers to taste, from how many different breweries/outlets? Any other details appreciated.

    Hopefully there is a shuttle running to/from the BART stop. Otherwise, that's a loooong walk.

    That's nothing. In 2019, I met people who flew in from China, Sweden, Japan, Australia, Brazil, and elsewhere.

    It's been discussed, but it's not feasible logistically and financially. I'd rather focus on doing another stand-alone virtual event in between our in-person fests.

    Cheers to Michael Hacker for another awesome design. The medallion logos always look so cool. The art and coloring are always on point.
