    In case you missed the memo, we're bringing our Extreme Beer Fest to Los Angeles in 2017. And while we've got some ideas on the brewers we'd like to invite, we'd like to open it up to suggestions from those of you who plan on attending.

    Prerequisite: Must be known for brewing good, creative beer that pushes the boundaries of brewing.

    So let's hear it. What breweries would you like to see at Extreme Beer Fest: Los Angeles?

    Check out Belching Beaver, and Bolt. Beaver is more of the boundary pusher as far a flavors, but Bolt has an oaked triple IPA that might be good for the fest.

    I would like to see some brewers from back east (NE Midwest SE wherever) that doesn't distribute to California, as well as some local LA brews. Might even entice me (and other aficionados) to make the trip down from NorCal :wink:

    Just focusing on immediate locality that I haven't seen mentioned previously:

    Everyone always forgets the great granddaddy of them all here in LA - Craftsman. If you love what Bob is doing at Highland Park (which is righteous), you have to love Craftsman where he learned the ropes.

    Ladyface would be grand because they are grand.

    Transplants is pretty much running on nothing but extremely weird well executed beers.

    If we don't have restrictions on contract breweries - Solarc is playful and weird.
