The Monktoberfest

We are planning to hold the tenth annual Monktoberfest in person on October 7-8, 2021. Our ultimate decision to hold the event (and at what capacity) will be dependent on the overall trajectory of COVID-19 case rates and other pandemic-related factors, but right now we’re a go!

Buy a ticket (Update: tickets are currently sold out, but click the link to join the waitlist. We will release more tickets as our venue capacity increases.)

Submit an application to our I&D program.

If you’re interested in speaking, please see the call for proposals.

If you’re interested in sponsoring the 2021 Monktoberfest, please reach out to Juliane Leary.


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.
