    Because "Are you hosting Extreme Beer Fest in Los Angeles this year?" has become an FAQ, I thought it best to drop a quick update.

    There's no EBF: LA this year, however, we're actively working on bringing it back to LA in 2019 and my personal goal is to make it an annual event. I'll post more as soon as we know more.

    In the meantime, I encourage everyone to check out our IPA Fest in Boston on December 15th and Extreme Beer Fest: Boston on February 1st and 2nd. The weather will probably be colder than the brews, but it'll be worth the travel.

    A don't forget to check out events hosted by our friends at the Los Angeles County Brewers Guild, like their L.A. Beer Week Kickoff Fest this Saturday.

    Thanks for the EBF: LA love.

    The EBF in LA in 2017 was fantastic! Sorry to hear there won't be one this year, if you hold one in 2019 I'll be there.

    Todd, I'm truly bummed. EBF LA was such a great event. You guys knocked it out of the park, and considering it was the first one, I was more than willing to tolerate some glitches. But from my POV, there were none. If you guys need more time to replicate, I'm down. I'll be there for sure.

    Ahhh such a bummer...EBF LA was fantastic! Even with the elevator bottleneck, it felt even smoother than Boston, which was amazing for a first attempt (maybe it was just because waiting outside in the Cali weather is far easier)...

    Definitely hope to see it again in ‘19. Keep up the great work Todd! And nore east coast and Midwest next time!

    Thanks for making EBF: LA in 2017 so incredible and thank you for having a goal of making it an annual event! It was without a doubt the best beer related event I've ever attended.

    Boston in February....brrrrr. But maybe I'll try this next year!

    Todd,
    It was great meeting you at the LABW kickoff after-party.
    I'm sorry to hear no EBF: LA for 2018, but will look forward to 2019!

    Well it’s Southwest’s 2-day California $39 fare sale so naturally I came here to see what dates to plan for EBF: LA 2018. Total bummer-last year was great. Maybe next year....
