  1. If I were to attend I would look forward to trying Brooklyn Brewery’s Sorachi Ace and any other beers they bring. I have never really had an interest in the brewery, but then I heard an interview with Garrett Oliver and I have completely changed my mind. He gave such a thoughtful interview that I can’t wait to try his beer the next chance I get, perhaps at this event.

    Along with the Sarachi Ace, I’m interested in Riverhorse’s Rye IPA. I am a big fan of Riverhorse in general and recently I have been trying all the Rye IPAs I can get my hands on, but I haven’t seen this in my local liquor store.

  2. 1) What beer you want to try – Anything that Firestone Walker brings, and Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold, since I’ve never had that.

    2) If you are an NJCB Member (as you’ll have to chances to win) – Not yet, but more places relevant to me are joining the fold, so I will be next year.

  3. I am looking forward to trying all the fall beers, but especially the Newcastle Werewolf – I have not seen that one yet.
    I am a NJCB member.

  4. 1. I’d love to try each of the Pumpkin beers.

    2. I am a member.

    3. Impressed we’re getting Goose Island here (yes, I know the distribution agreement, but still).

  5. I would like to try and pumpkin beers. As well as flyingfish octoberfish.
    I am not a member. But I’m thinking I should definitely become one!

  6. I’m excited to try some Widmer Brothers and whichever pumpkins I haven’t had yet.

    I am not a member but after finding out about you guys recently I will be soon!
