Come on. How can you pick just one? I’ll tell you what jumped out at me: Buckeye’s Liquid Foodie Truck Stop, Brew Kettle’s Miss Kitka and Carpe Diem, Thirsty Dog Citra (and you know I’ll have some Cerberus) and whatever Three Floyds is bringing.

I’m looking forward to trying several things in the Belgian area. I was surprised to find so many good things there last year. I’m hoping that Hoppin Frog does another firken with the Turbo Shandy, if I’m picking one thing

I’d like to try some beers from other countries. I’m excited to sample from Birra Tenute Collesi (Italian brewer) twist on a Belgian-Style Tripel named Collesi Triplo Malto. And just because the name I’d like see what the Skull Splitter is about from the Scotland brewery Orkney. It’s great that Cleveland is able to host this event!

As much as there are great beers from all over the world, and as much as I love stouts, I think the one I’m most looking forward to trying will be the Cherry Vanilla Edmund Fitzgerald from Great Lakes.

Bill Barak May 9, 2012 at 8:52 am

So hard to choose, but probably North Coast Old Stock Vintage.

And the Jolly Pumpkin and Rodenbach events.

Justin May 9, 2012 at 11:32 am

I can’t wait to try the beers that Nogne-O brewery brings. I always see them at Lizardville and am intrigued, but shy away due to the price per bottle.
