    Can you expand on “Cyberspace” location?

    Or is Ashton Kutcher going to walk in to my house now?

    Is there any more information on how this is going to work? I've looked around and don't see any mention about it.

    "More details to follow each day leading up to public ticket sales."

    Sounds like fun. Unfortunately it looks like it will be through Half Time Beverage again. During the last event they stated they had shipping to VA but wouldn't accept my zip code at check-out.

    Eventually one of the virtual events with ship to GA. This is the third event since the Next Glass merger. We need federal alcohol laws about shipping and not let the states add another level of red tape

    Anyway, everyone participating enjoy!

    I've been lucky enough to make the last two EBFs. In fact, it was pretty much the last fun thing I did before lockdown. I imagine cross-border shipping won't be an option for this one.

    I scanned the email too fast and thought Cyberspace said Cyclorama. Came here to find details. Sad face.

    Sorry. Crazy week. Here are five of the ten participating breweries:
    • Burley Oak Brewery (Berlin, Md.)
    • Dogfish Head Craft Brewery (Milton, Del.)
    • Great Notion (Portland, Ore.)
    • Japas Cervejaria (São Paulo, Brazil)
    • Modist Brewing (Minneapolis, Minn.)
    I'll drop the other five tomorrow, the beers on Thursday for everyone, Society members will get more fest details on Thursday morning, and the fest page will go live on Friday morning for everyone else.

    I'm guessing we won't be allowed to host mass gatherings like beers fests indoors until at least Q3 2021 at this point. :disappointed

    Here are the other five of the ten participating breweries:
    • Carton Brewing Co. (Atlantic Highlands, N.J.)
    • Mortalis Brewing Co. (Avon, N.Y.)
    • Short's Brewing Co. (Bellaire, Mich.)
    • The Lost Abbey (San Marcos, Calif.)
    • Plus an exclusive collaboration from Los Angeles, Calif. (More on this tomorrow, but between us I'm involved with this one.)
    Given everything going on, I have to say that I'm very impressed with the line up for this special edition of Extreme Beer Fest. I can also share that many of the beers that we've curated are fest exclusives (brewed for the fest) or debuts (you'll be some of the first to try them).

    More to follow...

    I cannot wait to attend my next Extreme Beer Fest. With that said, what exactly would I be buying tickets to if it is a Cyber event?

    You didn't hear it from me, but the word is there's a box of extreme beers, a guided online tasting, and guest brewers.

    Will we know the beer before we purchase tickets? And how many beers?

    It's going to be more than Extreme Beer Fest: Boston due to hard costs involved with shipping and handling. We're wrapping up all of the last minute details, but the price will be posted when the fest page goes lives.

    So Half Time Poughkeepsie is like maybe 40 minutes from me... Instead of shipping can I just drive there to pick it up?

    I'm confused. Half Time says they ship to Iowa, but I can't buy beer from them, can I order a package for the fest?

    No shipping to Arkansas or I'd be in.

    You may live in a zip code that’s not eligible.
