    That would have made all the difference. Rado and I both got "sorry" tickets.

    Hang on, I was told by numerous trade-value obsessed posters that no individuals, households, or tasting groups managed to acquire multiple bottles of BA Dark Lord. This is clearly a hoax.

    Photoshopped, you can tell by the lines and edges and stuff.

    So far I've heard of more Californians winning bottles than midwesterners. Something is clearly afoot...

    Thanks! It's a replacement for one I've nearly worn out since last year. You can actually pick these up straight from the FFF website too.

    For some context on my story, my winning tickets were green and made by the U.S. government.

    Anyone flying out of John Wayne around 1:00 on Friday that wants to get over-served at the Hobie bar?

    It's my first time. I'll be there by way of Milwaukee. Flying in to MKE on Thursday. I'm in group D and not planning on spending all day there, probably rolling up around 1-2P to avoid some of the madness. We'll see how that goes... haha

    I'm leaving out of Sacramento Thursday night, fly into Indy Friday morning.

    Not sure of my plans yet. Might run up to Bells and Founders, might hang around Indy.

    Group A tickets. I'll be wearing a Pliny the Younger '15 shirt... black backpack with a Pliny tag on it.

    SARA, Rare Barrel, and PtE are coming with me!

    Leaving from SJC to MDW with a buddy on Thursday and driving to Munster. Plan on staying in Schererville and attending a share on Friday and waking up very early Saturday to get to the event. Maybe see some of you out there!

    I'll be at DLD all day Saturday. Group D admission. Likely wearing my maroon Cellarmaker hoodie and SF Giants hat. Backing up the truck with SARA, Rare Barrel, De Garde and other beer-like things.

    FYI, Weather looks like it will be absolute shit. High of around 50 and 90% chance of rain. Plan accordingly.

    If I provided one of you guys with a bottle, would someone try my brandy vanilla dark lord clone next to one of the BA variants on DLD?
