    Carton is really the reason I'm attending EBF. For years, I went to Carton every Wednesday afternoon to try whatever was on randall that day, and I remember @augiecarton always talking about the crazy stuff he was bringing up to Boston for EBF (still have an odd desire to try Deli). Having other commitments this weekend every year, I'm delighted to finally have the opportunity to participate!

    I understand that you mixed different portions in order to arrive at the final product. What is that process like and how do you scale that up to production?

    As this is my first EBF, is this something you do specifically for the fest every year? That is awesome! What are some of your past favorite EBF brews?

    I have tried barely wine and find it interesting that it's called a wine rather than a beer? Is this really just beer-like wine?

    Barleywines are a style that isn't trendy in the current hazy beer scene. Do you think they could be more mainstream?

    My friend Newsie hates barleywines so I am excited for his reaction to this. Was this inspired by a cocktail?

    Given the obvious love affair that Sam and Augie have for each other, might I suggest we auction off "A Night with Sam and Augie" for charity? I'll gladly make the first bid!

    How do you respond to people who (accurately) refer to New Jersey as the armpit of America? (Spoken as a former NJ native)

    Augie will say it has no meaning, but one of the first times they referenced it, they said it stood for Original Wooden Carton.

    Pork Roll or Taylor Ham? (And since I know his answer, can @augiecarton enlighten everyone to the differentiation between North, Central and South Jersey?) And, to make it beer related, can we have a Pork Roll beer at EBF next year?

    Sorry if this question is misplaced, but I tried to check in to Untappd, and there is no beer advocate location for the virtual extreme beer festival. Where is it?

    There's no such thing as Central Jersey. Everyone knows the divider line is the Driscoll Bridge aka Raritan River.

    You should play the video for the next beer during the break. These videos are great.

    What classifies this as a barleywine? This tastes like a flat Shirley Temple with a splash of bud light and a shot of Campari.

    I just need to point out how absolutely incorrect this is ... there is definitely a central jersey. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    I've always enjoyed barleywines (usually because the ABV :grin: ), but what exactly is a barleywine?
