I am going to assist to my second GABF and I want to be ready for that festival. I am travelling from Barcelona so I don't know too many breweries from the States.

I am doing a list for the breweries that I HAVE TO try, but I would really appreaciate any other breweries that I can't miss it too.

My list:

Three Floyds Brewing
Bottle Logic Brewing
Funky Buddha Brewery
Russian River Brewing Company
Great Divide Brewing Co.
Great Notion Brewing
Green Cheek Beer Co.
The Rare Barrel
The Bruery
Parkersburg Brewing Co
Toppling Goliath Brewing Co
WeldWerks Brewing Co.
Pizza Port
Modern Times
Revolution Brewing

Sierra Nevada
Firestone Walker

You should add New Glarus, Perennial if they are there, Societe, and Lost Abbey to your list. I am sure I will think of more. Revolution, why?

La Cumbre

Solid list. Curious about how Green Cheek, Parkersberg and Revolution are on it though?

Second on La Cumbre. Also, Shorts can have interesting stuff. Also, don't worry to much about the heavy hitters. Wander around and find a lot of really good unknown breweries.

Captain Lawrence for their sours.

Kane is probably the best in New Jersey.

The Rare Barrel is overestimated

Thanks everyone. The list is still growing :) Thanks for all your advices.

I chose Revolution because I have good memories when I was in Chicago. The other ones are recommendations

Still looking for more recommendations, especially for Juicy IPA's / DIPAS and good Imperial Stouts

State ticks probably. Parkersburg is from WV. One of, if not the best in the state.
