Love Beer at the 5th Annual American Craft Beer Festival
By: Amanda - Loves Beer and Life Published:
We definitely loved American craft beer this weekend during the 5th annual American Craft Beer Festival (ACBF) here in Boston at the World Trade Center. There were 120 breweries pouring 550 beers for 14,000 craft beer fans, which made this event a tremendous success!
Session A on Friday night kicked off the festival the right way, and thousands of eager craft beer drinkers came streaming in to try new beers and talk to brewers from their favorite breweries.
We were really excited to have the chance to brew the official beer of ACBF – 5th Anniversary ACBF Beer – with the Alström Brothers! It was delicious, if I do say so myself.
On Saturday, ACBF hosted two sold out sessions, where 10,000 trekked through the gloomy weather to try some great beers. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more enthusiastic crowd waiting in line outside of the World Trade Center in rainy weather.
It was hard not to be in a great mood, knowing that there were so many rare and delicious beers that were just waiting to be sampled!
We hope you had a great time and we are looking forward to seeing you next year!
