My latest featured article for RateBeer’s The HopPress… posted on Saturday, November 13th.
Last weekend my son, Jamie, and I traveled down to Boston for the annual Belgian Beer Fest. Held at the Cyclorama in the Back Bay region of Boston, this festival brings together Belgian and Belgian-style brewers as well as distributors of these beers for a celebration of a type of beer that I have come to love.
I was disappointed that I missed the opportunity to participate in the “Night of Funk” held on Friday night before the actual festival on Saturday. This one-session festival unto itself is THE place where the brewers haul out their very best for the crowd lucky enough to gain tickets to this exclusive session. We attended the afternoon session on Saturday and the brewers and distributor representatives in attendance were still talking about what a “Funky” time they had the night before. Next year I will try to get in line sooner for tickets, so that I too can experience the very best that this festival has to offer.
