Hey everyone I am just wondering who is going to the Extreme beer fest Sat Feb 16th in Boston. I am going to be there and wonder if any other home brewers in the area plan on attending. For those of you out of state who might plan on coming in here are some details...

Looks like an interesting lineup.

Taking a posse to first session, it was tempting to sign up for both.

not me, I've done the Providence one a couple of times. I got sick of waiting in the lines and the drunk amateurs.

You went to the evening session didn't you? The day session is much better; more hardcore beer geeks.

As for the Extreme Fest, I will not be there. 1) I'm heading to NYC for that weekend and 2) the whole Beer Advocate extreme beer thing is not for me.

I've heard the words maximum occupancy and amateur hour from other sources as well. Oh well, I really want to go once. I am hoping to run into some brewers I've met before, but chances are the most junior of assistants will probably be there. Not that those guys aren't good to talk to, but I just don't know them well.
