    Just visited Jester King this weekend, loved their stuff, and wondered if they were coming/invited. Checked the thread and multiple mentions of them - have they been invited/responded?
  2. Wow, this is a great list. I agree with most.

    1. Toppling Goliath (Ia)
    2. Cigar City (Fl)

    Loved their initial stuff that was released not too long ago, I'll reach out to them though he the brewer from Perennial as well so maybe a joint booth.

  11. I'd like to see Greenbush Brewco, out of Sawyer, MI. They've been giving Dark Horse a run for their money on quantity and quality of odd one-off beers at the MI Brewers Guild fests.

  12. Perennial and side project will be making a collaborating beer soon, both have fantastic stuff. It's great seeing side project get some positive review exposure in BA mag as well!

    *Greenbush, and a 3rd on Southern Tier. Any capacity requirements that breweries need to have?

    Great list, not much to add to it. My two suggestions based on their different styles, barrel and sour programs would be Upland and Sun King. Great guys, and great beers

  28. Yes! 1000 IBU!
  29. Not sure if they even brew it anymore, but I tried a beer by Brew Dog once named Tactical Nuclear Penguin, which was over 30% ABV.

    If it's still around, and there's a way to get it, I wouldn't mind savoring a sip or two of it again.

    Aside from that, and the other great breweries already listed. How about Green Flash, their Green Bullet and Pallet Wrecker are rather extreme.

    Also Firestone Walker.
  30. Any shot there is a list of Breweries/Beers from last years? I searched for awhile and couldnt find anything.

    If I could go I would want to see Jolly Pumpkin. Only saw this mentioned once.

    Why not invite the little guys? Andrews Brewing Company, Lincolnville, Maine 04849 - Great St. Nicks Porter and a fine English Ale - Scotch Ale and an IPA on the way soon!

    There's plenty of "little guys" already signed up for EBF, but none of those are extreme beers; the theme of the fest.

    Sounds like Andrews would be a better fit for ACBF in May.

    What about Logsdon Farmhouse?

    Also a second to Hair of the Dog! The original extreme brewery.

    Is Goose Island a possibility? Might fly in and make a weekend out of this...
  39. Spring House! Had their Satan's Bake Sale and Martians Kidnap Santa recently; both were excellent!

    Oxbow, Spring House, Tired Hands, Hill Farmstead, Alesmith would be my five that aren't already announced.

    Alesmith would be amazing to see some of the SS variants they could bring, HFS was the best booth there the year they were there. Spring House and Tired Hands both make lots of interesting stuff, Oxbow is a relatively local brewery that could use some more hype and makes really good stuff.
