    Haven't been able to make it to an EBF in a few years, but my friends and I would always scout Short's booth pretty hard and everyone would be assigned a different beer so we could try them all in the first pass, then go back for seconds before their line gets crazy. Glad to see them on the menu for this years EBF:CS. Excited to try it out!

    My first stout was Guinness, and I didn't appreciate the dark bitterness at the time so I was reluctant to try any more until much later in life. What makes your stout better than a traditional stout beer?

    No lie, this is the beer that I am most looking forward to sampling at this fest!

    The hubby put this puppy in the fridge and I was *not* happy. What's the optimum temperature range for imbibing? I want to be well prepared for maximum enjoyment tonight.

    Spoiler alert. This beer is amazing! Is there any way to tag the event on Untappd?

    I visited Shorts on 9/16/2017. I had 3 flights of beers and loved them all. Amazing place to visit!

    What do you do to get that amazing boozy taste to this beer? It really is wonderful.

    For better or worse, Guinness seems to have set the standard for stouts. How do you personally feel about Guinness Draught? ☘️

    This beer is relatively dry in the best way for a lighter BA stout, how did you get this sugar level with something so deep and brown-liquor-?

    Is every popular or talked about stout being a barrel-aged or bourbon-barrel a trend that's going to continue, or is that just here to stay? Are fresh, toasty, imperial stouts still relevant?

    I fully don’t believe that there is a “traditional stout beer” in mainstream beer outside of Ireland.

    What’s the ABV on this one? Or are we too tipsy to notice it on the bottle?

    The only thing that could improve this beer or festival is if it were held on a train.

    Under venues, search "BeerAdvocate's Extreme Beer Fest in Cyberspace." You can check-in to the fest and check-in each beer.

    How do you handle the bourbon barrels when they come in? Sanitize? Just throw the beer in and see what happens? How do you keep consistency?

    Love the 70's label. No idea what the ABV is. Totally smell the bourbon and the maple.

    That video with Joe Short hit me right in the feels. Beer tastes better when it's made by people who care. Can't wait to visit from CA someday! Cheers!

    Holy Bourbon and maple nose on this beer, right from the cap pop. Can you tell us about the source of the maple syrup?

    We are beer #3 of 11 in the fest and Sam has already lost 2 of them. What's the over/under for the whole fest? 6.5?

    I get an incredibly strong Coffee taste at the end of this, WHICH I LOVE. Can you explain how that coffee flavor gets to be in the beer?
