thanks for the tips.
I read you loud and clear. I'll bring a growler of daisy cutter Haymarket beer depending on what they have available at the time. Any requests in particular?
I literally know nothing about their beers, so whatever you think is good.
And DEFINATELY watch your bottles/cases of DL after you buy it. One poor guy at Hunahpu's day had his whole case stolen.
Based on your reviews/hads you prefer stouts to IPAs, would you say that is correct? I might end up bringing one of each only time will tell
I like everything, I just review more stouts Seriously though, just grab whatever you think is their best offering that you can get in a growler. I'm not picky.
To pschul4 and MarkIntihar, I'm hoping Indignant (aged in Templeton Rye barrels) will still be available the day before DLD. I will pour it into every empty cup I see.
We will most likely be bringing a Haymarket growler or two as well, so they should be well represented at DLD!
I plan on bringing a growler from Haymarket as well. Won't know what it will be until last minute tho. Also I'll prolly b bringing a growler from Piece, Revolution and Half Acre.
I have my eye on their Defender but if that's not available I'm a big fan of the Aliester IPA
Of course this far out it's impossible to tell what will still be on tap by then
Looks like I'll be set on trying a Haymarket pour or two!
Love both of those brews as well and yea it's still a little far out to know what they're gonna have around DLD. I had the Lizzie's Simcoe IPA last week and that was one of the better IPAs I've had up there do if that's still flowin I'll prolly go with that. I'm hoping they'll have Mathias back on tap b4 DLD in which case I will def be bringing a growler of that. It's in fermentation now so we'll c
Great thread. Really getting excited for my first DLD.
Do I get one?
From me, or Nate? Either way, yes.
I wound up getting a ticket. Will be coming with a couple growlers from Carton Brewing in NJ along with some other stuff.
Haha this kind of reminded me of Max Brook's Zombie Survival Guide
Today is National High Five Day!
I declare today NATE NELSON DAY! High fives all around!
I was hoping as well, but its tapped out...
Mathias is on tap right now. I'm hoping it lasts. If so, you can count me in for hauling a growler of it to DLD...
Such a shame that one has to watch their bottles like a hawk because of some unethical bastards that might steal them... Although I would've preferred to have Group A or B, Group C does afford one the advantage of getting his or her bottles at the end of the day and not having to keep track of them.
I can't believe we forgot corkscrews for Loons and other lambics.
Wow, glaring error to my OP - DEFINITELY bring a waiter's corkscrew, both for Cantillon/Ithaca bottles as well as champagne corks that don't want to come loose like Boulevard.
this fun in the templeton barrels was waayyy better than last time they ran indignant but sadly they are out of it would have totally loved to blow some minds with that one
Yes, pschul4, it's sad that Rye Indignant is out, but chanokokoro has the right idea: Mathias!
At Sausagefest there they had the Lizzie's simcoe as well as Double Daisy Cutter and some other hoppy beers. I enjoyed the Lizzie's more than the DDC. It's damn good.
Damn they had DDC on tap at sausage fest!? I knew I shouldve got tix to that. I have 1 bomber of DDC left that I'll b pouring at DLD
2014 DLD virgins: these guidelines still apply. Stay hydrated, be respectful, have fun!
water, sunscreen...that is all.
Thanks for bringing this back from the dead. Only thing I'll add is the no coolers is referring to large hard plastic coolers. If you have a cooler bag with a shoulder strap you are fine. They don't want people dragging a rolling cooler through lines all day and taking up space. I have a large cooler bag, fits 6 bombers that I have brought the last 2 years, no problems. Target sells a nice back pack cooler that a few of my friends use.
Definitely some good advice in here, this should be stickied
does this forum even sticky?
Thanks a lot @yeahnatenelson.
does this forum even lift, bro?
Only in the presence of walezbro... bro...
What's the story on parking for DLD? Is it just on the sides of the roads in the office park?
I think I'll bring a growler or two from Tighthead Brewing
Avoid it at all costs. But I'm pretty sure there is limited parking but you're going to pay for it
Side of the road in the office park fills up pretty early. Id guess by 6 am. A couple of the other businesses got smart and started charging for parking. I paid $20 to park in the lot at the Jewish center. I think the park across calumet also was charging $10 or $20 last year.
I am always dumbfounded by the sheer number of people who drive to Dark Lord Day. Be careful out there folks. The last thing I want to see on here (or anywhere for that matter) is news of a tragic event that could have been avoided taking place after DLD.
