  12. says

    Would love to go to Session 1 and drink some Hooker beer (can’t go wrong with a beer named Hooker…or can you?). I will definitely let you know if I get arrested or not when I stop by the New Jersey Craft Beer table. Email is either as above or and I am a 2013 member.

    I am excited to try Third Shift and Ruckus. I am not familiar with them.

    The afternoon session.

    Would visit your table whether I had to or not.

  15. BrianAlt says

    I have to go with Great Lakes because I’ve never had a beer from them before.

    Do I have to choose a session? I’ll take either. But I guess I’ll say Session #2 if I have to.

    Come to the table? A….duh!

  16. Skylar says

    I’m serious hoping that Weyerbacher brings some of their newly bottled Insanity. And of course always looking forward to Firestone Walker.

    Session 1, and will certainly be stopping by the table!

  17. Kris says

    Such a tough call regarding the brewers.. But if only having to pick one, would go with Bellhaven from Scotland. I lived there for a year and partook of many Bellhaven products, great Real UK Ale. I will say the other 2 Scottish Brewers are also of interest and Elsyian.
    Would prefer session 2. Thanks


  18. Virginia says

    Definitely Bruton, and then seeing some old favorites. Hoping to try Sir Perry as well!

    Prefer 2nd session but I would love to go to either! :) Thanks!

  21. Bobby D says

    Would love to try some New Belgium brewery beers but since they will not be there my runner up choice would be Ruckus brewing.

  22. Melissa says

    1. I’m pretty excited for some cider! So, Magners or Blackthorn for me.

  25. Rich G says

    Greeting to choose one brewery is quite a challenge but at first glance have to say 21st Amendment.

    Definitely will come by the NJCB table and show it off proudly.

  26. amanda marrero-lapidus says

    why do i have to pick just one beer? ok. The shed for sure as I can’t find it around me yet. Really want to try Keegan Ales as hoping on stopping there next month when traveling.

    Of course I’d stop by your table. Even pose for silly pictures while I flash my membership card!

  27. Christopher Ericson says

    Would love to taste the Cape May IPA. I will stop by the NJCB table. Session 2 would be better but I can do either.

  29. Kaitlyn Plum says

    It’s a tie between Great Lakes and Victory and I would like session 2. Definitely will make a stop by the NJCB table. I’m a new member, but lovin’ it already.

  30. Chris Raia says

    Firestone is definately one I am really gettig into so far this year. So many out there but they are on top of my list.

    Session 2 would be best but certainly flexible.

  31. John Loconsolo says

    Session 1

    Thanks for the opportunity Mike.

  32. chris kenyon says

  34. Julian Fernandez says

    My favorite craft beer would have to be Dogfish Head! I along with a bunch of friends are actually making the pilgrimmage down to Milton, DE tomorrow to tour the brewery and enjoy the brewpub, and a beerfest next weekend would be awesome. I’d prefer the first session, and am a 2013 member!

    We would like to attend the 1st session.
    And what beer expo/fest is complete without visiting the NJCB table???

  38. Michael Schmon says

    I am most excited about Cricket Hill. Haven’t had many beers from them but the ones I have, never had a bad experience. Point Brewing and Victory wil also be on my to-do list.
    The 12:30 session would be best for me.
    I was planning on stopping by NJCB adn yes I am a re-newed member for 2013!

    Firestone Walker or Speakeasy would be my first stops!

    Session 2 is the only one I can make.

  42. Eddie says

    I’m excited to see Turtlestone during session 1. I don’t get a chance to find their beers in my area too much.

  43. Joel says

    Most excited by Firestone because I claim some responsibility for they brewery (I tasted owners homebrew while wine tasting their many years ago). But also Great Lakes which I grew up with in Cleveland, OH. Great beer and brewery to visit. Happy with either session, but later one would be better. And how could I not stop by the NJCB table? Great work team.

  44. Ray Pipher says

    All of the breweries on the list I’m sure will be amazing but would love to taste some Firestone Walker!

    1st Session is preferable! :-)

    Cheers to Good Beers!

  45. George says

    I am looking forward to sampling Smuttynose. As a home brewer it is a great opportunity to sample and enjoy multiple breweries.
    The first session would be great and I welcome the opportunity to stop by your the NJCB table. I am a 2013 NJCB member.

  46. David says

    I am most excited to drink your selections from Stone Brewery.
    I would like tickets for session 2
    I am a proud NJCB member!!!! Please, please let me win!!!!!

  47. George Blazeski says

    I can’t wait to try Boulder. I love Colorado beers and am already very familiar with Tommyknocker.

    I’m going to Session 2, I have to work earlier in the day!

    I actually first joined NJ Craft at this event last year so I look forward to seeing you guys again! Hopefully I’ll get my card in the mail before.

  48. Ryan Paul says

    Hooker. Great beer, great name. They have some awesome barrel aged saisons only available at the brewery. Hopefully they bring some. Session #1

  49. Kurt Ferrari says

    I’d like to try the brews from 961 – something I haven’t seen.
    Session #2 is preferred but I can do either.

  52. Bob N says

    There’s a lot of beers I’ve had, a lot I haven’t, but I’m most intrigued by 961Beer because it’s from Lebanon.

    I’d be interested in session one.

  53. Michael Mark says

    I am most interested in attending Session #2, but would attend either session. As a North Jersey resident who rarely has had a chance to try South Jersey’s lesser known microbrews, I am looking most forward to trying Cape May Brewing Company’s beers.

    Looking forward to trying Cape May brewing
    Session two please
    Will be sure to stop by the booth

  57. Nick says

    I owuld love to attend session 1. As far as breweries to choose from, what can I say I am from NJ and I would love to visit all of our home state breweries and give them much praise. As far as stopping at the NJCB table I would even be willing to volunteer at the table just to get a taste of all of these fine breweries for the day.
