Now that the dust has settled... AWESOME FEST! On behalf of the entire BeerAdvocate team, I'd like to thank everyone who came out to support our first Extreme Beer Fest in Los Angeles! And a special thanks to Sam + Dogfish Head for sponsoring, our new friends at the Los Angeles County Brewers Guild (Franny!) for being our non-profit partner, the CMC, and all the brewers for bringing it! Despite busting our asses to follow all city and state rules and regulations, we had some—let's just say "unfair," for now—last minute changes thrown at us by officials on Friday afternoon. This forced to follow and convey their brand new rule of "10 tickets for 10 / 2oz pours" to the best of our ability. Our only other option was to cancel the fest, which wasn't an option. We're not discouraged and plan on working with others to help educate decisions makers to ensure that this new rule doesn't stick, as it'll no doubt negatively impact the ability to host beer tasting events in the area. Step one was showing everyone that we can host an extremely successful fest with zero police incidents. Check! Aside from the above, we hope that everyone had an awesome time! It's a challenge to work with so many new moving parts and unknowns, and we've already identified areas for improvement, but the team would love to hear what you think worked, as well as your constructive criticisms and ideas to make next year's event (?) even better. Thanks again for your support, and we hope to see you at future BA events in LA or elsewhere. Cheers!
