Probability that the most popular beers will be long gone, I would imagine. Saturday night is the fourth session this year, don't forget.

Unfortunately I'll be at a wedding all weekend, otherwise I'd be all over this. Have fun, fellow BT'ers!

Every other year they've reserved casks for each session, to ensure everyone gets some.

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to chime in here to clarify a few things.

We will not be holding back any casks this year except for the feature (which will be announced very soon). The past two years we have released new beers every session and has resulted in us dumping a lot of beer at our expense. Given the nature of cask ale and special occasion permit events our goal is to sell out. We cannot transport casks to another location after the event. If you are concerned about selection, my suggestion is to buy tickets for the earlier sessions to guarantee beers will be available. Sessions #4 and #5 are slightly cheaper as there will likely be less casks available.

Yes we will be charging for shuttle bus service this year. Guests have the option to take alternative methods of transportation (Walking, TTC, Brickworks Shuttle, UBER and cabs). The appropriate amount of buses will be ordered based on the tickets sold.

As always, everyone is more than welcome to e-mail me directly if there are any questions or suggestions, tomas@caskdays.com. Appreciate your continued support and looking forward to another great year!

Looks like Cali again this year:

Cask Days ‏@CaskDays 2h2 hours ago
We're sending 20 empty firkins down to our good friend @CaskAleLA in LA, California to be filled for Cask Days 2015! #OnCask

Doesn't mean they won't have casks from Oregon or wherever too, of course.

Actually, I guess even if they're being filled by that organization out of LA, it doesn't mean it's not Oregon beer. They just had a blog post up about an Oregon email:

Lots of details released. Brewery feature is Washington, but there are UK, California and New York brewers there too:

Most of the beer lists are still "TBA" so not much to look at there. I'm still glad they published though, may as well pass the info along as they get it, right?

I don't see Fremont Brewing on the list. I don't think I know any of those WA breweries tbh.
