    New Dates: March 15 & 16, 2013 in Boston, MA

    Unfortunately, Extreme Beer Fest (February 8 & 9, 2013) was postponed due to severe weather conditions that forced the city of Boston to close all transportation. As EBF (and the storm) landed on a weekend, our efforts to reschedule had to wait; however, first thing Monday, we began coordinating with the venue to secure new dates and are pleased to announce that Extreme Beer Fest #10 will occur on March 15 & 16, 2013 at The Cyclorama in Boston, MA.

    Options and information for existing ticket holders are also included below.
