Scenes from Extreme Beer Fest (EBF) 2013 in Boston

I just walked through the doors of Boston’s Cyclorama, the location of the 2013 Extreme Beer Fest (EBF), presented by Beer Advocate and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. EBF was supposed to be held in Boston a month ago, but a major snow storm hit the Northeast and crippled the city for days, leading to the cancellation and eventual rescheduling of the festival. Mother Nature can’t keep us beer nerds down, and we’re here today to try as many wacky, wild and challenging new beers as we can in three and a half hours. I don’t think I’ll have too much more time to write, but I thought I’d share some scenes from this year’s EBF. I’ll be updating this post throughout the event with images so check back often if you want to see what I see.

    Alstrom asshats drink beer, get people’s cars towed while people are dying. Some real classy people, no wonder Mass threw their ass to Colorado!

    • I think you’re writing in English, but I’m not sure. If you’re going to try to bash the Alstroms or Beer Advocate, at least try to be coherent about it. I’m honestly not a big fan of the Alstroms either, but I enjoy the BA events.
