    So just to clear the air now, you can bottle share this year (as of now). Alright, start discussion...

    They were excited but I think it got hostile..... Now that we can share bottles and the tokens will be enforced, this thread should be all roses.

    This will be my first big brewery event, can't wait for this. I'm excited to see what the taplist will be like, I'm hoping they have that Homo Bourbon Sapien Cherry Tripple they had at the Detroit fest.
    Serious question, what time should I show up to be able to grab some bottles? I'm sort of thinking around getting there at 11ish, but didn't know if I should make it earlier.

    Once you mentioned gang like fighting a la "The Warriors" things got too real and the thread had to be locked down.
     
  8. I really really hope they have sarsaparilla six on draft again.

    As noted in the other thread, you could have showed up just about any time last year and still buy Plead the 5th. There's a lot more this year but also a lot more hype.... so it's hard to say what time is safe. I don't think overnight camping a la KBS day will be required.

    Just remember.... bottles or no bottles, this is an amazing party and the draft choices alone are well worth the trip.

    Is this a massive party with massive amounts of people? Ive never been to something like this and am considering going but if you cant get beer because of massive lines and stuff, I dont want to "waste" my time

    dblab33 Savant (365) Michigan Dec 9, 2011

    The only massive line is the one to buy bottles. Draft lines aren't that bad at all. It takes longer to buy beer tickets than it does to actually get a beer.

    What is a "potable" oat wine? As in "potable" water?

    That is the only guesstimation I can come up with. Those guys at Dark Horse always have some awesome stuff on tap for the party.

    I will bring something cool to share, but don't know exactly what yet. My buddies and I are having a cellar decimating tasting on Black Friday, so what I bring to 4 Elf will be determined by what is left in it after the tasting.

    I was thinking sour reserve #2 but I might not like u guys that much and might switch that to a Gilgamesh or NG sour brown.

    Forgive me if I'm wrong, but did I hear right that they served $5 pints of BBPt5 last year?
     
  32. MarcatGSB

    MarcatGSB Initiate (0) Michigan Jan 8, 2011

    Ohhh they served 5 dollar pints of everything last year...Plastic cups, available as soon as you get inside the brewery in line for your bottles. 40 taps. Highlights for me: BBPt5 (of course), BB Raspbery Homo Sapien, King of the Forest, BB Perkulator, Super Juice...all 5 damn dollars. My hands were BLACK when I woke up in the morning from spilling so much. I may have went to bed with a full glass next to my head in my car, I'm not sure, it was spilt all over when I woke up.
    I'm obviously not looking to get trashed from a bottle share, but if I can split up 4 or 5 bottles for 15 people and sip on some nice stuff I don't have access to, I'm gonna jump onit.

    I don't really want to do much of a bottle share as the party goes all night, and that's why I am there. I want to remember all of the tasty food and awesome DH brews and not be the guy in the front of the line yacking right after he gets his BBPt5 allotment.

    Just sayin.

    You guys are making me feel like an alkie up here. Maybe I am...I personally have no problem having a beer at 10 in the morning and drinking all day...Drink lots of water, take your time, and take breaks if need be.

    There is going to be lots of VERY good beer served at low prices. Why do we need bottle share?
     
  36. MarcatGSB

    MarcatGSB Initiate (0) Michigan Jan 8, 2011

    "We" don't "need" anything...just nice to have the option is all. If you are waiting in line and thirsty, you are more than welcome to help yourself to an ounce or two of deliciousness.

    Yes. I believe they'll open at 11 and draft beers will be available then.

    No...last year the 40 beers for the party were not available until you got into the brewery. They had a rather normal line up available in the brewpub when they opened at 11...Nothing out of the ordinary.
