BeerAdvocate will once again be host to its 18th Extreme Beer Fest but this one will be the first one to be held virtually. Normally BeerAdvocate hosts an in-person large scale festival that brings together some of the most extreme beers from the best breweries around. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the 2021 edition will switch it up a bit with the Extreme Beer Fest: Cyberspace taking place virtually from your home over two days from February 5 – 6, 2021. Beer delivery is available to over 25 states including Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and California.
Extreme Beer Fest is BeerAdvocate‘s signature event and did not want to see it miss a year so it worked with partners Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and Half Time Beverage to bring the festival to your house with a curated box of beer containing extreme beers, access to a guided tasting hosted by BeerAdvocate‘s Todd Alström and Dogfish Head’s Sam Calagione. Extreme Beer Fest: Cyberspace will take place from 5:00-8:00 on February 5 and 6, 2021.
“I really miss our beer fests and I know many others do too. Without being able to host in-person events for the foreseeable future, we’ve decided to bring Extreme Beer Fest to attendees.” —Todd Alström, Founder of BeerAdvocate
