    If a friend with a great band was interested in performing, who should I have them contact?

    A real musicians band, not some high school crap. Lol

    And here I thought you guys would just bring some more common craft beer. If all the brewers are bringing their A game + some rare stuff, I might just have to go.

    Yeah thanks. I saw the post on Facebook with the list of beers. Guess I was expecting more from the previous discussions about some having cool and limited stuff. Was hoping to to see some cool stuff from Founders, bells and FFF. Guess just regular stuff I can get at Binny's like most of the breweries coming. At least GI is bringing BCBS and SP. oh well.

    Color me shocked that FFF's beers remain a mystery. Telling people what to expect is most certainly not metal.

    There are over 180 beers at the fest. Not all of them can be rare and limited beers. There is limited stuff being poured from Solemn Oath, Two Brothers, Pipe Works, Goose Island, Urban Legend, Lakefront, Metropolitan, Revolution,Rogue, and Sam Adams. And we haven't released what is being poured from FFF's.

    Yes, understood. Was really looking forward to Bells and Founders. Looking forward to see what FFF will bring.

    We are pouring some Bell's Round House in the VIP tent and I am still trying to get something special from Founders to pour in the general admission area. I will keep you updated about Founders.

    Would love to go, but I'll be hosting my buddy from Boston all weekend. We're going to Pearl Jam at Wrigley the day before this, then plan on golfing Saturday. Don't think I could convince my GF to be a DD for the festival, either. Lineup and beer list looks awesome!

    Sounds like a good time. My dad took one sip of Zombie Dust, now refuses to try any more craft beers. Ha, so he wouldn't go with me.
