96 Breweries + Counting at American Craft Beer Fest this May

18 Mar

BeerAdvocate has teamed up with Harpoon Brewery to bring the 8th Annual American Craft Beer Fest. It will be held on Friday, 5/29 and Saturday, 5/30 right at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. This event has quickly become the biggest craft beer festival up and down the East Coast and always sells out, just like other Beer Advocate festivals like Extreme Beer Fest that’s going down this weekend.

Tickets are affordable at $53.74 and that gets you unlimited samples during the session of your choice: 

1) Friday, 5/29 from 6-9:30

2) Saturday, 5/30 from 1-4:30

3) Saturday, 5/30 from 6-9:30

There will be plenty of food there for purchase, too, which we definitely recommend. Just look at it this way, you’ve got 3 1/2 hours for your ticket, so take your time, sip some brews, drink some water, eat some food, repeat, repeat, repeat aalll dayyy longggg.

Mark Sigman, owner and brewmaster at Relic Brewing in Plainville CTAs of today, there are already 96 breweries that will be pouring out some suds, and it’s nice to see some local spots that will be there, too. Connecticut will be represented by Back East, Relic and Overshores, and NY will get some major cred from Brewery Ommegang, Brooklyn Brewery, Finback Brewery, Port Jeff Brewing, Rushing Duck, and Shmaltz. In addition, there is some major representation from MA breweries that will be on hand that you might not have had before that are worth checking out! But, really, you win here because a great deal of these breweries don’t ship out to CT and aren’t available to us, so you’ll get to try lots of new breweries that are still visiting/weekend fun trip close.
