For anyone who is in the Northeast, has an account with BeerAdvocate, or just wants to come an awesome festival, the dates and tickets for the 2009 American Craft Beer Fest have been released.
It will take place June 19-20 at the same location as last year, the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. Last year's was awesome, 75 breweries with over 300 brews and unlimited samples. It is hard not to get drunk at this thing within the first hour.

Last year's fest was one of the best times I've ever had. I hope to see some other HBTers there this year!
