    Left Detroit at 1:30. I'll be there in an hour. If I don't get a case I will be livid. How many cases are they saying are available?

  4. Yeah what he said. I thought shooting for a 5 am arrival was playing it safe.

    How does it go from showing up at 10am for cbs gets you some. To getting there at 7am for kbs gets you nothing?

    They usually pass out the tickets later in the morning closer to the opening, but with the line as long as it sounds who knows...

    Yeah of course but I took myself off the local lists because I figured I was getting more than enough. Doh

    My guys are about an hour or so out, if they left on time. I was counting on them scoring some so I didn't have to chase it down. Hopefully they come out with some.

    We drove around the parking lot at 5:30 am and the line was to the front of the building. We decided to not wait in line as there isn't much of a point now. Kinda sucks to have been in a hotel in the city and still not make the cut even at 5:30. C'est la vie, I guess. I doubt I'll try again in future years if this is the trend. Way too damn cold for me to be that dedicated and wait outside for 10 hours.

    This is crazy, we got there at 6am and the line was wrapped almost completely around the brewery. Decided to come home and try the taproom in a couple hours. Unbelievable.

    Quit complaining should of got here earlyer. Karma for people who were raging on me for wanting to bring a tent. That's what you get for being lazy and sleeping in a nice comfy hotel room

    Oh, trust me...I had WAY more to say, but the point of this forum is to be a community of beer enthusiasts and not burn bridges--at least from my point of view. I'd go join a national car forum if I wanted to post with pricks that have huge e-peen.

    No, because the people getting me a few cases are first in line. Why so serious?
  34. Treebs

    Treebs Initiate (0) Illinois Apr 18, 2011

    I'm intrigued by your logic that if someone doesn't get in line for a beer more than 12 hours before the release they are lazy. What scientific methods did you use to come up with this?
  35. Seriously, ridiculous. Good on everyone who got here early enough to get a case.

    HOLY SH#T. Pulled in to park at 4:45am and was astounded to see the line wrapping around to the front of the pub! Had my buddy hold our place in line and did a rough head count of about 400 (while getting called for line jumping...) (another 50-75 showed up behind us during that time) and we decided there was no way. Sucks to drive 3hrs and turn around to go 3hrs back, but I guess I kind of admire the guys passed out in their chairs/tents all night.

    Just goes to show the game has completely changed. I doubt I'll try again next year if rolling in before 5am doesn't even give me a chance...that's about as extreme as I want to go. Add me to the local Chi-suburb ISO list I'd suppose.

    Cheers to everyone sticking it out in the cold and remember to be safe!
