    Just visited Jester King this weekend, loved their stuff, and wondered if they were coming/invited. Checked the thread and multiple mentions of them - have they been invited/responded?

    I'd like to see Greenbush Brewco, out of Sawyer, MI. They've been giving Dark Horse a run for their money on quantity and quality of odd one-off beers at the MI Brewers Guild fests.

    Perennial and side project will be making a collaborating beer soon, both have fantastic stuff. It's great seeing side project get some positive review exposure in BA mag as well!

    *Greenbush, and a 3rd on Southern Tier. Any capacity requirements that breweries need to have?

    Great list, not much to add to it. My two suggestions based on their different styles, barrel and sour programs would be Upland and Sun King. Great guys, and great beers

    Not sure if they even brew it anymore, but I tried a beer by Brew Dog once named Tactical Nuclear Penguin, which was over 30% ABV.

    If it's still around, and there's a way to get it, I wouldn't mind savoring a sip or two of it again.

    Aside from that, and the other great breweries already listed. How about Green Flash, their Green Bullet and Pallet Wrecker are rather extreme.

    Also Firestone Walker.

    Any shot there is a list of Breweries/Beers from last years? I searched for awhile and couldnt find anything.

    Why not invite the little guys? Andrews Brewing Company, Lincolnville, Maine 04849 - Great St. Nicks Porter and a fine English Ale - Scotch Ale and an IPA on the way soon!

    There's plenty of "little guys" already signed up for EBF, but none of those are extreme beers; the theme of the fest.

    Sounds like Andrews would be a better fit for ACBF in May.

    Local Option Bierwerker. Gotta have at least one gypsy brewer in the bunch.

    Also a second to Hair of the Dog! The original extreme brewery.

    Lineup so far looks great!

    As folks are saying, Southern Tier, and I'd love to see Ommegang.

    Spring House! Had their Satan's Bake Sale and Martians Kidnap Santa recently; both were excellent!

    Oxbow, Spring House, Tired Hands, Hill Farmstead, Alesmith would be my five that aren't already announced.

    Alesmith would be amazing to see some of the SS variants they could bring, HFS was the best booth there the year they were there. Spring House and Tired Hands both make lots of interesting stuff, Oxbow is a relatively local brewery that could use some more hype and makes really good stuff.
