    Does anyone know if any brewers are bringing any rare, limited release, or short-run beers? There are usually at least 2 or 3 of these per session from my experiences in years past. Any insight would be appreciated, thanks!

    ACBF isn't really about that. As it has gotten larger and more popular, it seems to be moving even further away from the limited stuff.

    There are a few odds and ends, but no Surly Darkness or anything like that this year. Lawson's is probably your rarest stuff...

    Lawson's had some sort of Double IPA special release that was on tap last night around 8:30 or so. Does anyone know what it was called? I tried it and it was sublime. Just can't recall the name.

    It was Peril, yummy. DC Brau had OTWOA and Duck Rabbit was doing certain samples at scheduled times.

    Lawson's actually had limited releases at each sesion - bourbon barrell aged FMIS Saturday and year old bottles of Maple Barrel aged FMIS on Sat. night (that's 2 years old if you're keeping score).
