BeerAdvocate Brings Its Extreme Beer Fest To Los Angeles
BeerAdvocate will bring its Extreme Beer Fest to the west coast on Saturday, December 9, 2017. Continually hailed as one of the best beer fests in all of our land, it will finally make its way from its traditional home on the east coast to our coast, albeit Southern California.
Held in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, Extreme Beer Fest will take place during two sessions on December 9th. The day session will take place from Noon-3:30pm and the evening session from 6:00-9:30pm. Only 1500 tickets will be sold per session.
For the Los Angeles event BeerAdvocate co-founders, Jason and Todd Alström have partnered with Dogfish Head Craft Brewery as the sponsor of the event. The Los Angeles County Brewers Guild will be the non-profit partner for its first Extreme Beer Fest in Los Angeles. A portion of the events proceeds will go to the guild.
The breweries that have signed on for the first west coast edition of Extreme Beer Fest are quite impressive. There are breweries from as far away as Brazil and Sweden, plus ones you’d expect from strong craft beer cultures of California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Oregon, and Texas.
“Our fests focus on supporting independent brewers and educating attendees in a social environment. And since our first fest in 2003, we’ve put well over $2 million back into the industry by paying brewers for their craft.” – Todd Alström, co-founder of BeerAdvocate
At the 2017 Extreme Beer Fest – Los Angeles expect to choose from over 200 beers from over 60 brewers. Each beer presented will be one that truly pushes the boundaries of brewing along with the minds and palates of the festival attendees. And to take this one step further the Extreme Beer Fest will have brewery staff present in each of the brewery’s booths. This is a great way for out of market beer fans to learn more about the beer that they’re drinking.
