Dear Craft Beer Drinkers,

Throughout our 14 years of running Drink Craft Beer and all of our associated events we’ve always maintained that the experience of our attendees, our volunteers, and our vendors are our top priorities. If we can’t deliver a top notch experience for everyone, we won’t compromise.

With the recent events around COVID-19 and the current public health situation, we can’t in good conscience hold a food and craft beer event. These conditions prohibit us from delivering the experience that you’ve come to expect and we refuse to compromise our standards.

More importantly, due to this situation, we can't fully ensure the health of attendees, volunteers, and vendors. That’s not acceptable to us.

With this in mind, we are cancelling Boston Beer & Cheese Fest 2020. There is no reschedule planned. All tickets will be refunded to the original purchaser*. We’re working with Eventbrite on the operations of the refund, which may take up to 14 days.

We’ll have more information shortly on the situation. Please reach out with any specific questions, but please be patient if we do not respond immediately. There are a lot of details to work out at this time.
