Interesting that none are even remotely close to the midwest which I think has an amazing craft beer scene. Not that I am arguing that there should be. I have never been to any on this list or been to any in the midwest that I think are just awesome or could be worthy. Been trying to get to the GToMW for years now, so maybe that is one.

Great list. Noobs will now flock to these festivals I have no interest in.

Ah, yes, Savor, the beer fest that costs a mere $175 per 3 hours. No thanks.

My List of 7 (some I have been to some not)

GABF - everyone should go once
Great Taste
FoBAB
Stone Sour Fest
Oregon Brewers Fest
Vermont Brewers Fest
Belgium comes to Cooperstown - not as good as it used to be but worth a trip

*Purposefully excluding the RB planned fests

Nathan Berrong of CNN and I do not agree much
