BeerAdvocate Microbrew Invitational
A Celebration of Old-School, Small-Batch Brewing


BeerAdvocate (BA) is proud to announce the return of its Microbrew Invitational at the Seaport World Trade Center on June 2–3, 2017 in Boston, Mass. "Last year's event was far more popular than we imagined. People were stoked to try all of the new brews that debuted exclusively at the fest," says Todd Alström, founder of BA. "The lineup of beer, cider, mead, kombucha and sake from over 70 small producers was one of our most diverse lineups yet. We're excited to do it again and improve on this unique event," adds founder Jason Alström.
microbrewery [noun]
a brewery that produces less than 15,000 barrels (465,000 gallons) of beer per year.
"Before 'craft beer,' waiting in lines, anti-social ticking, hoarding, hipsters, neckbeards, trolls and selling out plagued the beer scene there was microbrewing. We're talking old-school, small-batch brewing that my brother Jason and I cut our teeth on 20 odd years ago. With the BeerAdvocate Microbrew Invitational, we return to these roots," says Todd Alström, founder of BeerAdvocate. Founder Jason Alström adds: "Hell yeah!" The BeerAdvocate Microbrew Invitational aims to bring awareness to the microbrewers who are the diversity and soul of what beer represents today. Each invited microbrewery will brew a unique beer to premiere at the fest.
