    And I would like to see NoDa from Charlotte return again this year. Their Coco Loco Coconut Porter was the most memorable beer from last year for me.

    Definitely the more good breweries whose beers are not available in MA, the better!

  28. Lucky! I brewed a batch of Coco Loco thanks to info NoDa's owner sent me and while it was outstanding and all my friends love it, it was nowhere as fantastic as the original. Next time I fly to FL, want to have a long layover in Charlotte so we can go to the brewery!

  30. This is the same day as Firestone Walker Invitational, right? Do breweries attend multiple fest at once? I know 3Floyds was there last year along with quiet a few big hitters.
  31. Todd

    Todd Founder (1,410) Colorado Aug 23, 1996 Staff Member

    1) Yes, same day.

    2) Depends on how much resources a brewery has.

    3) Although Three Floyds has been to EBF in the past, they haven't replied to any of our emails for years now.
