Atlantic City Beer and Music Fest (Atlantic City, NJ, March 20 & 21)
It's now been ten years since the first ever Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival poured into this New Jersey town. While each of the first 9 years were worth the visit, the 10-year anniversary promises to be a can't-miss affair, including featuring 1,000 different beers from 150 breweries, huge music acts, a pop-up jam band space, and the opportunity to speak one-on-one with the brewers and reps who bring you the beer you love so much.

Extreme Beer Fest (Boston, MA, March 20 & 21)
Just a few hours north from Atlantic City, Boston will play host to the Extreme Beer Fest, which promises to be a beer festival like you've never seen before. Hosted by BeerAdvocate, Extreme Beer Fest will push the boundaries of craft beer, while making it easy for craft brewers to participate (BeerAdvocate waives booth fees to support the brewers). Here's your opportunity to see craft brewers tests their limits (and sheer beer nature), all in the name of creativity. Learn more now.

Twilight Tasting (Santa Ana, CA, March 7)

Albany Winter Brewfest (Albany, NY, March 7)
There are few better ways to prepare for St. Patricks' Day than with a brewfest. And that's exactly what the Albany Winter Brewfest is - a great way to get ready for the main event. Taking place in a huge Irish Pub setting, the Winter Brewfest features nearly 100 great craft beers, food and of course some classic Irish music. Learn more now. 

Rock Star Beer Festival - Orange County (Santa Ana, CA, March 14)
Craft Beer. Live Music. Southern California Climate.
We probably had you at "Craft Beer," right? This unique walk around event features local and regional breweries, as well as local bands and DJs. Once the beer festival is "officially" over, there'll be an afterparty at a nearby nightclub, to help you keep the dancing and drinking going on for hours more. The event (a collaboration of #rockstarbeer Productions and a variety of breweries) helps raise money for educational programs at UNLV, as well as to support hospitality internship programs.
