perfect weather....keep the rain away and that will be great!!
Anyone's tickets show up in the mail yet?
Photo confirmation over in the DLD tickets thread.
We don't have to look that closely with you wearing your lame Tigers hat and silly Penn State sweatshirt
8 days.... i'm running a cellar "draft" this week to see which bottles will make it (ok, it will just be me alone in my basement, but i will think hard about it...)
Guys this is serious (not like email-miester over there), we need to discuss something...
Can we all be done wearing pretzel necklaces? I mean, i guess if it's your thing that's fine, but seems like a lot of work for something that already comes ready-to-go in a bag? Plus you get crumbs on your shirt, and it's weird if it looks like your 5 yr old made you a necklace so that now matter how drunk you get you don't lose your snack...
I really think we need to settle this on-line, it makes about as much sense as some of the other "concerns" we have here.
also: anyone dressing up as a monk?
I will email Three Floyds about the pretzel necklace and post their response here...I tend to agree with you, but would like their official stance.
Still hard to believe this is a thing.
I prefer to string a bunch of vienna sausages around my neck. That let's me know who my real friends are.
What about a bandolier filled with pretzel sticks?
"At least one shrunken head or pentagram medallion is required in order for the pretzels necklace to be offset by metal. This excludes blood-covered pretzels, as they are already metal."
Thought i posted this before, not sure what happened to it:
yeah, i think that's ok... on the list of "acceptability" i'll put it above Fanny packs and man-purses, but below camelbaks and good- 'ole backpacks. So you're in, but barely, i'd rub a little dirt on it to be safe.
- sausage necklaces are great.... it's going to be a sausage fest anyway, you might as well string 'em up in and around your mouth
- First person to find me with a pretzel necklace containing a shrunken head gets a bottle of Pliny FO FREE...
Good to know! Anyone know if permanent funeral will be available?
I know vienna sausages won't satisfy you perhaps I'll wear a kielbasa necklace to really get you drooling...for kielbasa that is.
Better watch out dude, this might be construed as cyber bullying. Wait, do IL cyber bullying laws apply to a thread about an IN event?
I just added popcorn to my list of stuff to bring. I'll have it out at 8am, watching near the front of the line when someone blatantly tries to cut like an asshole and flaunts an email with riveting info such as "I don't know what time the line starts."
Should be great.
I might bring a smoked brisket necklace
Lookin for some guys to hang with. Only got one ticket, so rolling solo for the day. Wouldn't mind do some trading either. Have plenty of Bourbon County Stout '11. This years KBS, Bell's Batch 10,000, Leinie's Big Eddy from '10 and '11. Two Brothers Bare Tree from '11. DFH Olde School Barleywine from '10, DFH Fort '11, DFH 120 minute '11. 2013 Firestone Walker Sucaba. Few other notables...if interested, let me know. Just need some drinking buddies and I'll be bringing plenty to share!
Which hotel nearby is the "go-to" hotel for the day before sharing and just in general...where does everyone crash? My 2nd DLD, first time lookin for a room....
The Hampton Inn in Munster has the main bottle share and is the closest to the brewery. It sold out a while ago but it may me worth calling about a room? I'm not sure about other hotels in the area but I know the one in Merrillville had open rooms last year...
Actually, as of an hour or two ago, the Hampton does have a room available with a king bed for $209 a night.
Who are you, Wolowitz?
I don't even know what that means.....lol
You'd have to be a fan of the show "Big Bang Theory" to get the reference.
gotcha....most of the TV i watch is whatever my 3 year old watches....this is why i drink
Yo Ho Matey's Away....
I guess now is an appropriate time to announce my plan for DLD - a Chipotle Burrito necklace. I'll have all the different kinds of meat (chicken, barbacoa, carnitas, and steak) with guacamole on each one.
I don't want to get too drunk and look like a fool.
Another Ghost Scorpion would be the perfect beer to accompany that
I'll be the guy following you around all day.
If you are going to follow him around, better make yourself a toilet paper necklace!
No word on bottle allocations yet, right? I shouldn't be surprised that we've got a week to go and I haven't received my tickets, there's no indication of how many regular bottles we can get, and no indication of what the BA variants will be outside of speculative confirmation on Bourbon and Port.
I'll be the guy walking around with a toilet paper necklace.
Allocations weren't announced last year until morning of DLD.
Oh man. Grab the gold doubloons and go to DLD?
I'll follow along anyone with a golden ticket
And don't forget about the Chipotlaway
Funny story, my local beer shop just got in a bunch of Ghost Scorpion...
Thanks for the info, I should've asked earlier.
I was told Bourbon (No, not Pappy), Bourbon Vanilla, Port, and Red Wine. They will not officially announce them until the day of.
Save some port and red wine variants for the rest of us ...
