    May have 2 spare tickets in our group. Would be group A. BM if in need. (one girl got sick, one guy had family emergency)
    We would trade them for DL or similar or whatever. No cash, no ripoffs.

    Most recent forecast: High of 47 degrees. Seems that most of the rain will be in the morning although there may be "lingering" showers in the afternoon.

    That is not the positive report I was hoping for.

    Won't be out there until after 1:00 (C group), but I'm bringing some stuff to help keep me warm:

    Stone Sublimely Self Righteous
    Old Ruffian Barleywine
    Slumbrew Porter Square Porter
    Firestone Walker's Reserve Porter
    Hoppin' Frog B.O.R.I.S. The Crusher Oatmeal-Imperial Stout
    and maybe a couple of my homebrew Black Lodge porters
     
  21. Any word on bottle allotment yet?
     
  22. pointyskull

    pointyskull Savant (310) Illinois Mar 17, 2010 Verified Subscriber

    And price. I'm assuming it is still $15/per like the last few years...

    Reggie's in Chicago is providing free bus rides to FFF all day/night. It's not very busy either.

    Are they running constantly, as they come back? In the past, I thought they only did 2 down (like 9 and noon) and 2 back (like 6 and 8).
     
  26. @xerenthal stop spilling good beers :)

    Please tell me the rumor of allotment = 1 per is false

    I'm fairly certain the people there would burn down Three Floyds if that were true.

    Looking to pickup a second ticket for a buddy. We were only able to get one between the two of us. If anyone has an extra let me know! We can work out a deal! Heading up there in an hour or so...
     
  33. Allotment seems to be 4. Doesnt quite explain why I've seen pairs of people with 8, but we shall see.
     
  34. Allotment IS 4...beer line moving fast/efficient...who knew?
