    A quick look at the data says the festival hasn't skewed towards a regional event. For example, in 2019 Massachusetts breweries comprised 12% of the pool (15/125), while this year they make up 13% of the pool (4/32).

    The top three states that are more represented this year than last year are New Jersey, Maine, and Oregon, and the top three states with less representation are Ohio, New Hampshire, and Illinois.

    I would definitely think the geographic reach % is smaller as well. Last year there were two Canadian reps, Beau's and Godspeed, as well there was the Brazilian one who's name slips my mind.

    Not complaining, but I do love data :slight_smile:

    That's a good point. Last year four countries (US, Brazil, Norway, and Canada) were represented. This year, only US breweries will attend. Last year, 28 states were represented, this year, 17.

    The brewery from Brazil was Japas Cervejaria.

    I've just been informed that the attendee to brewer ratio last year was 31:1.

    This year it's 22:1.

    They had some good ones.

    Its funny because Godpseed is my local and I didnt even realize they were going until I saw the owner/brewer Luc on the plane and then to find out that there was another Japanese inspired brewer from outside the US. A tasty coincidence.
