Default American Craft Beer Fest - Boston MA

Is anyone going to this? This will be their 3rd year and it will be my 3rd year attending. Such a good time. Looks like there will be about 400 beers this year.

Same here. Seems like it would be the least crowded of all 3 sessions. Have fun, this event is a definite blast. The Atlantic Beer Garden is right up the street too for a bite to eat afterwards.

Session 1 Saturday! I just put together my list of beers/breweries that I definitely want to hit up. At least 24 beers, not counting the breweries where I want to try everything...
