    And I would like to see NoDa from Charlotte return again this year. Their Coco Loco Coconut Porter was the most memorable beer from last year for me.

    Definitely the more good breweries whose beers are not available in MA, the better!

    Would love to see a few of the great Mid-West breweries, specifically, Revolution Brewing and Piece Brewing, both out of Chicago, and Two Brothers Brewing out of Warrenville, IL.

    New Glarus, Jolly Pumpkin, Russian River, Alpine, Deschutes, and Hill Farmstead would all be cool to see, especially since they are scarce to non-existent in this area.

    Lucky! I brewed a batch of Coco Loco thanks to info NoDa's owner sent me and while it was outstanding and all my friends love it, it was nowhere as fantastic as the original. Next time I fly to FL, want to have a long layover in Charlotte so we can go to the brewery!

    This is the same day as Firestone Walker Invitational, right? Do breweries attend multiple fest at once? I know 3Floyds was there last year along with quiet a few big hitters.

    1) Yes, same day.

    2) Depends on how much resources a brewery has.

    3) Although Three Floyds has been to EBF in the past, they haven't replied to any of our emails for years now.
