FML Fest, which takes place on August 15th, 2020, is a full day of virtual programming with educational panels and engaging conversations featuring some of the biggest names in the craft beer industry.
Additionally, Oozlefinch has obtained a direct shipping license to eight states and D.C. So, festival attendees in those states can receive a curated box of eighteen beers from several of the best craft breweries in the country.
While Hop Culture has made a name for itself with the Juicy Brew series of craft beer festivals, we’re thrilled to launch the world’s largest virtual craft beer celebration.
