Introducing "Beer Meets Wood". Be it fresh or toasted oak, American or French, bourbon or wine-soaked, aged for months or years, or all funked up with wild yeast and bacteria, there’s just something mysterious and magical about introducing beer to wood. To celebrate this union, BeerAdvocate (BA) is stoked to announce the first installment of its Beer Meets Wood festival series, featuring some of the country’s best brewers dedicated to the craft of maturing beer in wooden vessels. The one-day, two-session event will be held on Saturday, September 23 at 58 Fore Street in Portland, Maine, and will feature hundreds of beers matured and changed by wood-aging. Once again, we're honored to be sponsored by Allagash Brewing Company. Beer Meets Wood aims to bring greater awareness to the centuries-old practice of aging beer in wooden barrels, a method that’s currently surging in popularity. Brewer attendance is required to ensure the highest level of representation and education. And, as always, BA pays for the beer. Tickets go on sale Saturday, April 1 at noon ET for $55 per person (plus fees) and include all beer tastings and access to one of two sessions on September 23 (12–3:30 p.m. and 6–9:30 p.m.). All attendees must be 21+ with a valid ID.
