    I'd like to see a lot of the new breweries that have popped up in the past year or so.. Trillium, Foolproof, the new one in Portsmouth (forgive me for not remembering the name)

    Cape Cod Beer , Surly.

    NOT Sttramge Brewing from Co, though if Brian from Strange Brew HB shop found they were in townthere might be a rumble...

    Kane Brewery from NJ. They have an IPA called Head High which I'd love everyone to try. Had it at the Asbury Park BF and it was incredible!
    Also Rogue, SN, Alaska, Founders, Great Divide, Boulder, Harpoon, Brekinridge, DFH, SA, North Coast, Ballast (Victory at Sea), etc., etc., etc..

    Geaghan Brothers Brewing out of Bangor, ME would be a great addition. Their Capt. Kool IPA is fantastic, and you can only get their stuff from the pub. Black Bear Brewery out of Orono would be a fun too.

    Not to rub it in but there is such a thing as Imperial Coco Loco also.... 9.7% and scary good.
    Good news is that they just got a new (used) counter pressure bottle filler so they might be able to do bottles releases more frequently in the near future, which would make trading a lot easier.

    As soon as we get a breather from rescheduling Extreme Beer Fest we'll see what we can do about getting up a list of ACBF brewers. A quick look at the spreadsheet of who's in is already getting me excited.

    Greenbush. They kill at these things. At the Winter Beer Festival this weekend in Michigan they'll have 48 taps. All unique, good, creative stuff.

    Just curious when the final list will be going up (or an updated list)...Figure you guys have your hands full with EBF and Beers for Beasts, so wise to assume late March at the earliest?

    Signed,
    Guy who checks this forum thread and the ACBF site for updates daily (it's a sickness)

    I would love to be a part of your brew fest. I don't make beer but I do make soap made with local craft beer. I use some of the brews you will have at the event. Let me know if I can join you.
