    Thank you very much for the quick reply.
    Would you mind elborting on the criteria to be invited. We have had a few recommendations that we should enter in this comparison and are excited to be part of it even if it is in the future. Thank you again.

    It's a combination of things, like: scores/discussions on the site, recommendations from other brewers, existing relationships, previous attendance, and more.

    Are we thinking there may be 30 or so breweries or is the 27 closer to the final number?

    As per the fest page, we're aiming for up to 36 brewers.

    Anyone familiar with the area around Cyclorama? Im looking for a good restaurant/bar within walking distance to grab a meal beforehand and/or possibly extend the party afterwards. Thanks!

    The Cyclorama is in the South End of Boston. It's pretty restaurant heavy in that area, and also close to the Back Bay. Picco is like right next door and has great pizza and a pretty solid taplist usually. Five Horses is probably the closest "beer bar', but there are a lot of restaurants nearby. Just hop on Yelp and look in those neighborhoods, you'll find something that fits you.

    Looks like the list is down to 26 breweries for EBF. Pretty sure it was at 27 the other day. Anyone know who dropped off?

    Which is addition by subtraction.
