Had a great Time at the sc release, ran across a few BAs, looking forward to next time
Likewise. I'm going to take a nap now. Will give thanks later. Zzzzzzzzzzzz...........
Anyone have any idea how long the bottles will last? I'm thinking about heading that way from raleigh.
Bottles ran out at about noon , a few people got an.. extra 2 . But they are out
So many ridiculous beers and thanks to the ridiculous BAs who brought them. Too many for highlights, but time to go pass out.
That would put the crowd larger than ORF or BASC*. I'm still amazed that regular SC is a bigger draw than the two barrel aged beers.
*I'm basing this on the fact that a great many people at ORF got second allocations and at least one guy left with multiple cases (to be distributed amongst a lot of people in his home state). In the end, ORF was sold out in 81 minutes.
I want to say they only gave out about 300 or so wristbands. Was sold out by noon or so
What a great time! Special thanks brstls4drmrs, RedneckBeerz, Bonko_the_sane and all the other awesome people I met/chilled with today. Mad props to the dudes who gave me some CBS, Fou' Foune, Dark Lord, and Lawson's. Best time I've had at a release to date.
400 wrist bands handed out total
They never called anything past 325, so the last 75 must have snuck in. Lol
I was in line and watched them hand out the last wristband... #400
It really doesn't fucking matter, i got my 8 bottles
Good for you
this was my first foothills release but i was told there were more people than both olde rabbits foot and bbSC.
i had a great time and thanks to everyone who was sharing beers with me! i was the prematurely grey-haired guy with the cafe royale.
Being fairly green to the craft beer scene I am continually amazed @ the great, open, and generous people that show up for events like this. Seeing beer friends both old and new is always a great time and the amazing brews that they bring to share is just an added bonus. Great people, brews, and conversations; another amazing event. Could rattle off a hundred names (except I'm old and my memory is shorter than my ______ <---- fill in the blank) of great people I saw and met over Friday night - Saturday morning, I tip my beloved camo Redneck hat to you all. Hopefully you all made it home safe and sound and somewhere down this dusty road known as life, we shall share a great malted beverage together once again. Big props to Foothills and ALL the people that work there, I am humbled by your love for what you do for all of us. Forever thankful to you all, Your Red Neck Beerz Gary
Had an amazing time at my first SC release. It was nice to meet so many great people with amazing beers from across the country who are so willing to share with everyone. Hope to see yall again at another of these things.
This was my 1st release and tasting I've gone to. I need to thank casino for bringing me and everyone that shared. I got to taste beers that I could only drool over let alone think I'd ever get to taste. It was my first time having a sour and lucky me got to try the Fou Foune. It was really great to meet a lot of you guys. Redneck you're a character! Thanks for sharing seizoen bretta. I appreciate all the kindness and shares
This was the best foothills release in some time.
It was nice having more time inside to share beers.
I really was happy to get to try the yo soy un berliner, the homebrewed passion fruit berliner ( If I did not have to drive a few hours I would have finished that off ), the white choc, and many others.
That shit was amazing !!!
What a great time this was. The Friday night events were crowded but nonetheless, a wonderful environment (even with the "winos" around-- ). A big thank you to all the BAs I shared a beer, convo, and laugh with. You all are great people. The entire event was very memorable and one that I will cherish.
Lastly, a big thank you to Foothills and the staff. Everybody worked, and/or partied, their ass off and were guilty of making sure everybody had a good time. Thanks for making great beer and hosting events such as this. They get better every time.
My last post in this topic.
Anyone that knows me or that's met me gets a pretty good sense of how full of crap I am, but this is Scout's honor swear on my Little Orphan Annie pinkie ring the truth.
As JP and I finished lunch and headed our separate ways I loaded up my truck and went back inside Foothills to make sure I hadn't forgotten anything (I have a bad habit of leaving stuff wherever I go - hats, jackets, ect.). As I didn't see anything I was headed towards the front door when I noticed a rather short elderly woman waiting in line to get a table and I just casually said "How are you mam" to which she replied "I'm fine, can you tell me where I can get some sexy chocolate?".
I said "Mam that sold out an hour or so ago" and she replied "My Grandson is going to be so disappointed in me".
I said "Mam if you'll hold on a minute I'll be right back" and proceeded to my truck and retrieved a bottle which I slid into my left front pocket. As I went back inside I noticed that she was still standing there in line and I told her I had her a bottle of Sexual Chocolate. She could see that I had the bottle in my pocket since about 4" of the neck protruded from it.
She said "What do I owe you for it" to which I replied "Mama how about a hug?" and she reached up, I bent over and we hugged very casually. At that point I whispered in her ear "and a kiss on the cheek" and without hesitation she obliged. Then as we were still hugging I whispered "now take your right hand and slllllooooooowwwwlyyy pull the bottle out of my left pocket and she did as I asked all the while she was snickering.
As we broke our casual embrace, she thanked me over and over again. I turned toward the door to leave and took one step and whirled back around and said" I know what you are, you're one of those sexy cougars trying to take advantage of us young guys". I would have never believed that an elder petite woman such as her could bellow such loud laughter. I hit the door, got in my truck. and headed back to Greensboro.
I related the story to my wife after I got home and she got a kick out of it.
We had a great time as always. Thanks to everyone who shared. Looking forward to seeing those of you attending the Busy Bee festivities on Sunday in Raleigh.
What sucked, is that I was in Winston-Salem last weekend on business, but couldn't get over to the brewery in town. I was, however, literally next door to the main brewery in the business park. They didn't have bottles for sale, but I did get an impromptu tour.
Hell of a funny story AND a great display of beer advocacy!!! RedneckCheerz for RedneckBeerz!
