Arrived at Foothills at 4:30AM for the second time in two years. Last year I got bottle #69 and was hoping for it again. ( got 15 16 17 and 18 this time.) The line was cold, but the beers kept us warm...
** 2012 edit no more tasting in line

...until the staff brought out sausage biscuits and hot choc. Very awesome!
**2012 edit sounds like now they are going to amend the rules catering to those who want to show up late and biscuits are now $2 ea.***

The inside looks very nice and the seating was not crowded at all. The only thing that took away from the experience was the crazy Jamaican music that was playing over the loudspeaker above our heads in line. ( that was changed though :) ) No offense to those that enjoy it, but wow!! Never heard anything like it before.
**edit no longer able to get a seat and eat if you enter first. We were told we had to exit the building until after the bottle sale.

Like I said the staff was awesome, offering warm drinks, cleaning up the pink vomit no im not kidding that someone left on the sidewalk ( HAHA wasnt me!!) , they came to ask how the food was etc. and never let the drinks go dry. Jamie was going around signing bottles.
**2012 Edit The staff sold us beer we wanted to enjoy then and only then told us we had to drink it fast ( or waste it ) because it was not allowed in the back.

I had a Ruben and fries ( amazing!!! ) and the homemade ketchup and mustard was awesome too. Sampled the SC and it was very very good. I am glad I got my bottles.

Im going to be back next year for sure. I hope it is warmer.
**2012 edit no longer going back. plenty of better releases now.

MIssed a release due to the BS above and was told that the ways were ammended yet again.
Seems there is an ok compromise. drinking is legal until an arbitrary time, then it is not. The doors open earlier for more drinking which was cool. If things continue like this, Ill make the drive again.
