Hosted by BeerAdvocate, presented by Dogfish Head, and held at the Cyclorama in Boston on June 14 & 15, 2019, the festival will span two days and three sessions. Limited to 700 tickets per session.

    Updates:
    • The brewery lineup has been finalized! We're working on the beer lists next, which could result in the earliest we've ever released the lists.
    • Taking what we learned from VIP at IPA Fest and Extreme Beer Fest, @Jason and I are personally curating some VIP-only beers to be poured in the lounge. We plan on doing a meet & greet with VIP, too. More to follow...
    • Brato was a big hit at Extreme Beer Fest, so we're stoked to have them back at FUNK as one of three food vendors.
    Looking forward to seeing around 2,000 or so of you there! And thanks for your support!

    I noticed there weren't any Belgian brewers on the list. Was this a conscious decision compared to last years lineup?

    Last year's lineup for Belgian Beer Fest: Day of Inspired Ales had a couple of importers, but that's it. And yes, it was a conscious decision. As much as we'd like to invite Belgian brewers to join us, there are numerous factors that make it cost prohibitive.
