Gotcha. I was wondering if they were in the tent or cars or any other place that is warm.
Founders having any specialty taps for tonight or since Sumatra is gone none til KBS tomorrow?
Anyone know if they posted the tap list for tomorrow?
Bag is packed and ready to go:
FFF Lord Nelson
We should be arriving around 6ish...look for a red FFF beanie
Grabbing dinner at a rest stop on the OH turnpike. Brought way too much beer with me. Hope you all wore your drinking pants!
I will be the guy in the glasses and Detroit Tigers track jacket or if it's too cold, a heavy black Carhartt hooded jacket. I will be bringing some 2011 KBS, Terrapin Moo Hoo and Wake 'n' Bake, tons of BBPT5, and some Arcadia BB Shipwreck Porter. Feel free to stop by in line for a beer.
I'm headed to GR now and staying at my cousin's down the road. I have no idea what time I am getting in line, though. Last year, I asked about getting some bottles when I came in at 1 pm and they damn near laughed me out of the brewery. So I might need to make it out early just to make sure.
Camping out already? that is a bit aggressive. See you all around 7am.
I am going with Treebs and we are leaving Chicago around 2ish.
Look for me tomorrow. I should have a sour cherry brown, a bourbon barrel flanders and a kreik. I will have a red and black north face jacket on.
So I was thinking of bringing Ladderball. You think that will be okay? It can be moved very easily and quickly
Ill save you a daisy cutter (or a pour of any of the other beers im bringing) if you save me some wake n bake
This is what I'm most excited about. I can't wait to see what surprises they have up their sleeve. Does anybody remember what they had on tap for KBS Day last year?
I think it is kinda weak of people to just put chairs out there and then leave. Sorry but that is trying to save spots and in my mind just as bad as cutting. Whatever, I'll be there early in the morning and will accept whatever spot I get.
Nothing too crazy last year. Started with '09 KBS, '10 KBS, '10 KBS on Nitro and obviously '11KBS. The '09 and Nitro went rather quickly. As far as I remember there was nothing else too crazy, and they did not have CBS.
It would still be nice to try a KBS aged for a couple years
I definitely can't complain if that's all they have. It would be interesting to try '10 KBS on Nitro and '11 KBS.
At Founders right now! Red, Red Wings snapback. Come say hi!
Will be at founders at 6:30 tomorrow wearing a Redwings winter hat. I have two bottles of Lolita, two of homebrew and a growler of GI honest stout for trade or sampling. If you're interested in a trade pm me.
Yeah man, I heard the same. Drinkin the Jewbelation vertical at Hopcat on a comfy seat then headin to our hotel to do some BCS tasting in a warm room. Why stand outside?
I feel like I should get there at like 6 am now, based on the number of goddamn tents out there. Probably not needed but there are a good amount of people prepping for the night right now.
Holla if you are at the Holiday Inn.
Does anyone else feel like tents are cheating? If you want to be out there at midnight and make everyone else show up earlier, get you ass out and bear the cold.
Is the line past the back of the building yet?
Cheat to win.
"Cut to win" -Richard
This is the truth.
Also this shit has gotten out of hand. Getting here at midnight and you see 25 tents set up. I say that while also contributing to the problem.
I was planning on getting there at 6am but now you are making me nervous. Might have to leave when I get out of work at 2:30 now...
Were only an hour out. Made better time than I thought we would. Can't wait to see tent city.
It's looking like its not even worth it to make the drive from chitown. Was planning on leaving around two, but looks like the line is already back by the gas station. I cant imagine what the line will look in 5 hours.
25+ tents past the back of the building?! C'MON MAN.
Lets just hope they ask people to put their tents away in the morning...
With the way things are going within driving distance of Chicago, I am not surprised at all.
Line is to the back road already.
Is the line like solid people or lots of tents?!
Man, to the back road already!! That's gotta be close to 200 people already. I was by the drive way by the gas station on the back road when the line usually takes that "L" turn for CBS and I was number 318 in line...seems like it's getting pretty close to that point already.
The CBS release I was just past the next turn back to the west on the other side of the building and I THINK I was in the high 400's
The line may be long but I have a feeling it's not that dense because of all the tents and chairs. Let's just hope all the people with the large encampments don't let all their tardy buddies hop in.
Do you have to get a ticket number when you get in line?
Making me rethink getting there at 7 was to early...
Do you get a number when you a ticket number when you get in line?
