The Monktoberfest

It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of the 2021 Monktoberfest.

We began the conference planning journey this year tentatively but hopeful. Alas, the COVID-19 delta variant significantly changed our core assumptions on whether we could hold the event safely. Faced with that reality, the only reasonable decision we could make to keep everyone healthy and safe was to postpone the event for a second time.

This was a difficult decision, and we are so sad to miss yet another opportunity to connect with our community. We hope to see you all in-person at Monktoberfest 2022.

Stay safe and be excellent to each other.

For the tenth year, the conference that was born from a tweet will be back for 2021, bringing you the best speakers, talks you will hear nowhere else and – of course – the best craft beer the world has to offer.

Attendees arriving the night before the conference will be treated to a special welcome event. Thursday will feature a full day’s worth of single track sessions, and at the conclusion of the day we’ll be gathering for our usual off-the-hook beer tasting and dinner. Join us on Friday for a half day of sessions before heading out to enjoy an autumn in the lovely Portland, ME.
