Must try breweries at the 2012 GABF
 
http://www.greatamericanbeerfestival.com/at-the-festival/floorplan/

what are the can't miss breweries this year? What are some smaller breweries worth trying?

I found this article from the Westword:

Jailhouse Brewing Company F33

Best Georgia brewery that's at GABF. I'm a fan of their Breakout Stout.

Cigar City from Tampa, FL. AWESOME beer...

Hoppin' Frog is one of my all-time favorites, and I don't think it's distributed anywhere beyond NE Ohio. I'd RUN to their booth! :rockin:

They are most famous for B.O.R.I.S but I found their triple IPA and double IPA to be outstanding as well, and prefer it over B.O.R.I.S.

We get Hoppin' Frog here in Colorado, good stuff. I'm going to hit the Founders and 21st Amendment first!

Is that the Indianapolis one?

I'll pitch Surly from up here in my neck of the woods. Some great beers.

I am also a fan of Hoppin' Frog, which is available in Georgia. It's not LeBron James good, but Hoppin' Frog should make Akron proud.

+1 on Cigar City.

Make sure you try Catawba Valley from NC. They have some great sours, also some weird beers that I don't love, but worth trying for sure.
