    Great the sooner the better. This was a blast last year and looking forward to another.
    Besides boneyard (and to get back on topic :) ) how about half acre?

    Not sure what your definations of extreme is, but their big beers are fantastic. Russian Imperial Stout is incredible, as is the barrel aged Barleywine. Do they use "extreme" shock and awe ingredients in their beers? No. Do they make some great big beers? Absolutely. I think if you tried to judge any of the breweries at the EBF on their "extremeness" by trying their pale ale, you'd be missing the point.

    Big does not equal extreme, at least not how the Bros. have defined extreme for EBF purposes over the last few years.

    Any word on ticket sales? I know they went on sale in October sometime last year. How are we going to hear about it?

    Not sure if treehouse would qualify as extreme but something to consider. Jester king would also be great.

    Oh please, yes. I was blown away when I was in Portland. If beers like Mulligan aren't extreme, then I need to revisit the dictionary.

    Make sure you shoot an invite out to Revolution Brewing (http://revbrew.com/beer/view-beers) in Chicago...they like to play around/push the edges, and make a whole lineup of really well-crafted brews. They'd be a major treat to the fest, I think.

    Central Waters! They've always got an array of interesting/one-off barrel-aged projects going, and they definitely know their way around a barrel.

    Did anyone throw out Funky Buddha? If not, their Last Snow and No Crusts kill it. Not to mention it's a relatively new brewery that has a boat load of promise. If they stuff their Last Snow in a barrel, that brew is gonna be mind numbingly incredible
