FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (BOSTON, Mass.) With sours beers surging in popularity, BeerAdvocate is excited to announce its next festival on June 14 & 15, 2019. Presented by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and held at the Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts, FUNK Boston will span two days and three sessions and feature 40 stellar breweries pouring more than 130 sour, wild, and funky beers.

“Inspired by our popular Belgian Beer Fest Night of the Funk series, FUNK Boston takes what was a single evening of wild and sour beers and turns it into an entire weekend celebration,” says Todd Alström, founder of BeerAdvocate. “And Night of the Funk always sold out well in advance, so we’re stoked to be able to invite more fans of funky beers to get down with us.”

“I’m very excited that Dogfish Head is the official beer sponsor of BeerAdvocate’s FUNK Boston,” adds Sam Calagione, founder of Dogfish Head. “We have proudly been brewing sour beers—from kettle sours to wild and wood-centric stuff—for well over two decades. We look forward to showing off a range of our off-centered and funky goodies shoulder-to-shoulder with so many of America’s leading sour creators this June.”
