    List looks good, though bummed Dogfish is not on it. So far the brewery attending that doesn't sell in MA that I am most looking forward to is Summit Brewing. Have had their beers when down South.

    The list isn't done yet, and I believe Dogfish Head will be there.

    Thanks Todd, I was hoping they would be a late addition. Never know what new concoction they will bring!

    Dogfish Head has been confirmed. We're at 104 brewers now.

    Did any of MBC get an invite? Even though they are not "craft" nor are they American I would like to hear their reply as to why they wouldnt be able to make it. If they called that bluff I would like to see them there and get ignored.

    Also would like to see SoutherTier
    Capt Lawrence

    Looks great. I know it's probably too early for this, but just curious when you expect to have the list of beers each brewer will bring? Another month maybe? I loved perusing that before last year's show.

    I second Stillwater and Ninkasi. Anyone know if Evolution Brewing Co. got an invite?

    Indeed. I've been talking and obsessing about their Altbier for almost a year now. Ours was just a few booths away from OMB, so I enjoyed many, many samples of the Alt and Pils. Two of the best beers at the fest last year.

    The early confirmations look really good. Agree with the recommended additions above. I would also add NEBCO, Southern Tier, The Alchemist, and Jolly Pumpkin to those lists.
