  7. I'll defintely be repping for Cal State Long Beach while I'm out there with my backpack, t-shirt, and jacket. Say what's up if you guys spot me and I'll make sure to give you a pour of whatever I got opened up at the time.
     
  8. If I spot you a pour of Cable Car is coming your way...

  9. Where's everybody staying at DLD eve? I'll be at the Hampton Inn that night and looking forward to the big bottleshare that they put on.
     
  10. I'm staying in Chicago and heading out early next morning. I imagine that the Hampton Bottle share will be legendary

    Haven't decided which place I'll be staying in yet: The Courtyard Marriott OR the DLD line.

    Are you guys going to actually buy the DL allocations? If so, what do you do with them? Trade them back to midwesterners?

    No, but I will trade one to you for that DDG you have. Maybe even two if you can talk me into it.

    You win.
     
  20. offering help to you Westerners. We are driving in on Thursday and crashing on top of Robbie Moy, then hitting up Chicago spots (Clybourne, some Binny's, etc,) then driving in. I am not above "hooking a BA brother up" if someone needs a ride/pick up (as long as it is halfway reasonable). Let me know, and Leschkie, bring me a DDG.

  22. I'll be there! Look for the guy wearing the Ohana Brewing Co. shirt.

    Can't make it but if anyone wants to make a trade for a dark lord I'd be in. I hear its awful (soy sauce?) but i'd like to find out for myself!
     
  25. Can one of my fellow Ca BA pick a brother up a DLD T Shirt?

    I am looking for a Black size Mens Medium

    Preferably with the small logo on the front and large label art on the back.

    Let me know and i am sure we can work something out.

    Thanks!

    Beer shirts don't sell in Medium.
     
  27. Cascade sent me a free shirt with an order, too bad it was a medium. I even tried to give it away during trades but couldn't find anyone that fit that obscure size...
     
  28. Obviously nothing important or they wouldnt be snarky about it. I dont know either.

    Great, thanks! Appreciate it :)
     
  30. So...I guess i can take that as a "no" for the help on the T-shirt...
     
  31. one of you boys want to trade local growlers?
     
  32. I think the problem with your request was addressed below :)

    Anybody heading there from San Diego and have some extra space in your luggage?
    Got a grumbler I would like to get into the hands of biglobo
     
  34. If any of you are still alive, what were your thoughts, did you win a variant?

    What a great event and this years DL is actually rock solid. Bbn vanilla on draft was amazing and a lot of good Sharing. I'm somehow sunburned to all hell, ironic as a Californian in cold town..

    Definitely a VERY well done event. Over the course of the night before and the day of, came away with this haul:

    The only bad thing I noticed is that the popularity of the event attracted a LOT of entitled little shits trying to start problems. Not that its new, but seemed more abundant this year.

  36. Damn that's a nice haul!
     
  37. Vanilla DL blew quick. My friend had to pay someone $20 bucks for a pour. Waited in line over an hour for a beer, had to eventually bail. Then waited another 11/2 hours to get my DL. Some interesting guest taps, but overall I could have had a better time at my local bar. Permanent Funeral rocked. I was less excited about this year's DL-soy character was overpowering. I guess this is what people do for fun in the Midwest.
     
  38. But did you win a variant? Did you? Did you?
