Greetings! First, for those who don't know me, I'm Todd Alström, Founder of BeerAdvocate. I'm also hosting Lager Fest in Cyberspace (our third virtual beer fest) along with a special guest, participating brewer, and my good friend Edgar Preciado, @BEERTHUGLIFE. Second, thanks for your support and welcome to the fest forum! Here we'll post updates, discussion threads, recordings of both sessions, and other fest content. If you get lost, you can find this forum under "Lager Fest" main site navigation or on the main Forums page. Third, shoutout to the team at Half Time Beverage for partnering with us to ensure that everyone gets a box of lager in your hands before the fest! Stumbled upon this post? Half Time is accepting orders for CO, FL, and OH residents until July 22. Sales for all other qualified states end on July 30. Join us! And make sure to use code RESPECTBEER to save 10%! What's New?
