    Tried to find a list of what was offered at last year's NOTF but couldn't find on BA or the interwebs. Was all record lost with the forum changeover? Wifey and I have tickets - just want to know roughly what to expect.

    We've never kept previous lists online, but typically begin posting lists roughly a month before the fest. We'll see what we can do about starting the lists a bit sooner; like July vs. August.

    Thanks Todd - for other fests, I have usually been able to gauge from the "What was your favorite" type forum posts. Not a biggie; excited regardless.

    This is going to be my first BA Fest, and I'll be attending the night of the funk. Should I expect the Night of the Funk brewer's to be the same as the list posted for the Saturday sessions? Or will they be different?

    Night of the Funk will include beers from some of the brewers on Saturday (not all of them brew funk beers), plus others. Volunteers pour on Friday. Brewers pour on Saturday.

    Typically we don't posts lists until roughly 1 month before the fest. Night of the Funk can take a bit more time to pull together on top of this.

    I would love to see cascade and crooked stave. Getting close on time though....

    Funky Buddha wouldn't suck either!

    Does anyone have plans for post NoTF that they want to share? Me and my two buds I'm going with may be looking for something to do
