    Misbeehavin Meads added to the lineup - details TBC, but sounds like they'll be rolling through with something super cool... especially pumped about this one - they put out some world class meads & ciders :)

    I want to know how many kellers and zwickles will be pouring! Very little interest in the neipas.

    Right now the modern/hoppy side of things has more entries than the "classic" side, but we're hoping that it might level out at least a bit as we get closer to the date and brewers start confirming more specifics about their entries. Either way - I'll be sure to post the full program (once available) for those that are curious.

    I completely expect the hazy hops to dominate, and that’s okay. That’s what’s popular in beer right now. I just hope there’s some decent representation from the others, which not many breweries are doing, but is what I’m
    Interested in.

    the goal is absolutely to have decent representation on both sides, and we're certainly emphasizing that to our participants, so we shall see - will keep you posted!

    :)
