    Cigar City and Funky Buddha, to make up for the blizzard this year.

    Also, are you planning to keep it in Boston?

    Blue Lobster
    Portsmouth (I know Smutty is usually there, but Portsmouth does more in the extreme/creative realm)

    Burley oak was a huge star last year, them and Shorebilly for Maryland. Had some of their stuff this summer and they are a natural fit.

    I've never been, so I'm not aware of past participants. But from the southwest: La Cumbre, Marble, Santa Fe Brewing, and Dragoon Brewing out of Tucson. All outstanding breweries that the rest of the US deserves to discover.

    Seconding the votes for NEBCO and HF. Also Night Shift and Trillium, as far as breweries super local to me (and Boston itself) go.

    Along with the top tier breweries I would like to see some of the little guys and startups get some exposure.

    I'd be interested in seeing more breweries send bottles even if they can't attend. In the last 2-3 years we've gotten stuff like Bruery's Black Tuesday and Cherry Oude Tart, as well as 6-8 Cascade offerings last year, which were fantastic additions. It would be awesome to see something like some Crooked Stave bottles being poured.

    Personally, as long as the usual suspects who bring their A game like Lost Abbey, Allagash, FW, Founders, & Captain Lawrence show up I'm sure it will be great. From the last year or two Hill Farmstead, Funky Buddha, and Cigar City have been great additions.

    and I'd suggest a "no" to Bruery unless there's enough beer to last more than 20 min into a 4hr session

    I'd prefer they not waste precious table space on Earth Eagle or Throwback. I'm cool with the others though.

    While I haven't had Earth Eagle or heard good things about them, it does seem like they'd be a good fit at least.
