Since so many of us are coming from all over, I thought it would be fun to have a craft beer trade at Electric Forest. There are so many dank, craft beers available in cans now, that this should be pretty easy. I know there are a lot of beers made here in NC that don't get distributed elsewhere that I would love to share with my fellow beer lovers. I'm sure this is the case for other areas, too. Who's down?
Sounds great. My roommate owns a craft beer growler store down here in ATL. We'll both be up in the forest again this year. Would love to share all the good stuff brewing down here. Atlanta is opening up 7 breweries this year so we should have a bunch of fresh stuff you haven't seen.

im coming from San Francisco and brought a bunch of bottles of Pliny the Elder last year.. So nice to have some real good ipas out there. Someone should buy some HopSlam now while its out and save it till then also.
My Festival Career:
Rothbury 2009 (First festival/cheese experience ever!)
Bonnaroo 2011 (lots of fun but way to big, bad sound bleed)
Coachella 2012 (never again)
Electric Forest 2012
Hornings Hideout 2012 (First solo festival, ROCKED!)
Hangtown Halloween 2012 (really small and totally amazing!)
Electric Forest 2013
Hornings Hideout 2013
Hangtown Halloween 2013
FYI - The Wesco convenience store in Rothbury has a pretty good selection of Michigan craft brews - Bells, Founders, and a couple others. Montague Foods in Montague - the next burg south of Rothbury - has a huge selection from most the craft brewers in Michigan's Lower Peninsula and from around the US.
mjpeeps: loving the weirdness!

dadya: Bassnector. He said he won't be there. He prolly won't. I've yet (and the vets here can refresh me if I'm wrong on this) to have an artist say that about eff or Roth and then show up anyway. Not how this fest rolls.

TheGreatUG: People said the same thing about STS9...

Gouda: GreatUG, correct me if I'm wrong, but STS9 never said they weren't playing EF. I could have sworn they didn't make an official comment about it. I would be surprised if Bassnectar was trolling his fans that hard though, doesn't sound like him.

spinrathen: No they didn't make an official announcement but if you pmed them on facebook they replied saying no they weren't playing eff in 2013. I was skeptical until I tried it myself and got a response.
Feb 20, 2014 11:38:01 GMT -5
Gouda: Hmmm, well I'm pretty sure Bassnectar said he wasn't booked for EF in response to a personal tweet. Right? So maybe Bassnectar is possible.

Chris: sts9 said they weren't playing EF in 2013... because they didn't play EF in 2013...

Chris: Bassnectar won't be there... i can enjoy him, but the crowd sucked in 2012... but Lorin doesn't seem like the type to say "nope, i won't be there" and then a few months later turn around and say "lulz... fooled you bros, i'm totally gonna be there"

TheGreatUG: I love the interwebs infinite, and predictable, wisdom.

Gouda: Wow, Chris I wish I read things as well as you. Valid point sir.

Gouda: Thats how I feel! I check this site like 10 times a day. I can't hold my excitement in. Once I catch festival fever, I'm itching for festivals until fall. 119 days till EF!
