    Also curious about Dark Horse. And, if they're not coming, where did that BBPt5 go?

    Barrel aged Plead the 5th was my #1 priority, I hope they can make it back. I will survive if they don't, but will be :(

    Updates:
    • If a previous brewer isn't listed at this point, chances are high that they won't be in attendance/can't make it.
    • We're confirming beers this week and will begin postings lists as they come in.
    • As of this post, there's still some Night of the Barrels tickets available.
    Cheers!

    so the lists on ba.com/ebf are current-ish, if not final? i.e. cascade and cigar city are in?

    We hope to have some of the Night of the Barrels beers from brewers who were previously in, but can't make the new dates; these brewers will not have booths on Saturday and we pour the beer on NotB.

    In part, it's part of our cover our asses policy. On Friday we're assuming all liability (we pour, no brewery booths), but as we have brewery booths on Saturday we can't have volunteers solely representing brewers/assuming their liability.
