    found out today that I will be able to bring the new Surly canned offering "Overrated" Plaonen on having 2 flats, so if you want to try it before every one else, hit me up.

    Only 2 flats? Do you even lift, bro?

    Is a flat like...a UK measurement for a sh#t ton of beer. Like two apartments worth of beer?

    I'd like that.

    Like.

    flat is reference to the carton that Surlly cans come in. 6 4 packs. Box only goes up half way up the cans, hence the phrase flat.

    This year I'll actually come down and join in. I was a bit last minute going to DLD last year so I didn't really know if I could just jump in with you guys, but I can see now I could have haha. I'll bring a ton of WI beer.

    Make sure you practice sabering the foam from the top of the glass.

    ok, my goal is to knock out the top 50 rated beers. i will sacrifice and bring heady, pliny the elder, and bourbon county... who's going to bring a Cable Car? it's just one beer, and i'm already bringing three, you basically owe me.


    Also, a real clue: I'll be trading a KH for a beer not from the US at the tasting/DLD, and will be cracking it as soon as it's chilled for all to share.

    Yes please!

    I suppose i could/will post a picture as we get closer. Some of my bottles, though, belong in a set with other BA's bottles, so my pic may only be a partial story.

    ...shit, i think i just gave away a free clue. DON'T think about anything i just said.

    On second thought, maybe should just open one and have 5-6 guys rate it 1 so it falls to 51. Might be easier
     
  21. Got it. So I need to drink beer with Nathan at DLD, 4 hours from the town we both live in, because we never drink beer together there... :)
     
  22. ridglens

    ridglens Initiate (0) Indiana Jan 10, 2010

    I take full blame for this... perhaps if i was in town more than one weekend a month! I think we could do some serious catching up, though!

    According to the dancers at Club 390(and AleWatcher) that’s a HUGE clue! ;)

    speaking of huge clues, FedEx says my bruery shipment is on my doorstep, I just went from 6 to midnight.

    You guys should, too, since half of those bottles are making their way to the "to be shared at DLD" pile! Plus, getting full, triumphantly girthy clues is best done when shared with many men (and women) on the internet...

  25. I'll bring some BA Perennial goodies if people leave that fucking Ghost Scorpion Lager at home. Fuck that beer. Hard. In the ass. With a rusty metal pole.

    Hot damn, I need to get in on this. Since the thread for the party over at the Marriott seems to have died, is anybody willing to provide a couple dudes with some floor space to crash? Were bringing beer, six gummy bears and some scotch.

    I have it on good authority that he will be in attendance, and i imagine in fine form as well. you have been warned.

    He may also be hard to avoid. His ultra-shortness allows for much sneaking....

    ridglens Initiate (0) Indiana Jan 10, 2010

    ok, another clue:

    I'll bring a bottle who's name has 5 words... and if you really did the first two words to the last three words, the fifth word probably wouldn't' be doing the fourth word any more, all (third-word) of them would be dead. but they might taste better....

    shit i just confused myself.... i forget what bottle i was talking about

    I'm also bringing a beer that's solely (or is it soul-ly?) dedicated to the spiritual cause that is DLD... not to be confused with focus or paying close attention...

    Confused yet? It's a batch 3 X 3, from 2009, and it's going to be awesome.

    Agreed he is a sneaky sneaky guy. I have an inherent distrust of people who are short. I suspect most of them are leprechauns and are after my gold.
