Last weekend, Beer Advocate’s Extreme Beer Fest in Boston was cancelled due to the massive winter storm Nemo. Boston was an absolute mess, with all public transportation shut down and an active driving ban punishable by a big fine and even jail time. It was necessary to postpone the event. But the organizers just sent out a message with the new dates for the 2013 Extreme Beer Fest.
Here’s the message Beer Advocate sent out to folks with EBF tickets:
Extreme Beer Fest: Rescheduled Dates
New Dates: March 15 & 16, 2013 in Boston, MA
Unfortunately, Extreme Beer Fest (February 8 & 9, 2013) was postponed due to severe weather conditions that forced the city of Boston to close all transportation. As EBF (and the storm) landed on a weekend, our efforts to reschedule had to wait; however, first thing Monday, we began coordinating with the venue to secure new dates and are pleased to announce that Extreme Beer Fest #10 will occur on March 15 & 16, 2013 at The Cyclorama in Boston, MA.

I’m real psyched to see the event reschedule so quickly, but I still feel for all the brewers and beer enthusiasts who came to Boston only to have their EBF plans fucked up by mother nature. I’ll definitely be attending one of the Saturday sessions next month.
