    Enough local ones :)
     
  12. I was thinking of heading up and trying to get a BB Banana French Toast mead before I head to wedding at 11:00, but buddies who are already there told me no chance. Building is at capacity and they aren't letting anyone else in. They are doing the order form system like at Solstice and if you didn't have your form in at like 8:00, forget it.

    Yeah, if you didn't get a ticket about an hour ago, you're screwed. I was number 8 and got my French Toast around 8:30-8:45. Loads of people here and they aren't really letting more in. Crazy crazy busy.

    Oh, and no pours of French Toast this year. Bottles only.
     
  15. Crazy here for sure ! Lined out the door - at capacity and no one is leaving so not letting anyone in

    Price and size of the French Toast bottles?
     
  17. $20 375ml - sold out I'm guessing by now only 361 bottles
     
  18. mtrog313

    mtrog313 Savant (300) Michigan Feb 28, 2012

    $20 for a 375. Just got number 284 and there's maybe 20 people still in line behind me

    Another person at my table was told they are sold out of french toast and they are at a number in the low 100's. Not sure about 361 bottles...
     
  21. 100% - 361 bottles.. Where telling people with ticket numbers over 100 to come back later to pick up bottles because there was so many people there just waiting
     
  22. I hope you aren't basing this on the numbered tickets, because they numbered way more tickets than there are meads available - I overheard two of the employees say as much.

    I heard one of the bros say 300 bottles, so i think in the 300's is legit.
     
  24. Kinda wish they would number some of there limited release stuff - but my 361 number was info from someone there and has nothing to do with ticket numbers - also had a taste and its way different then last year but still amazing, maybe even better !

    Man, Had a fantastic time...The Lucky Charms Lager was By Far the #1...It was the closest to taste like what it was supposed to be..The Kapn Krunchberies sucked...Had a taste of the French Toast (thanks BeRanger) Was AMAZING!!

  28. had to leave but will be back around 5pm to pick up some more bottles and enjoy some drafts if anyone is still around
     
  29. Anyone know if all the orders are filled yet? I had to leave and don't want to go back yet if they're not filled.

    Cheers

    What other bottles are they selling? Leftovers from March Meadness?

    Yes, Lucky Charms was the clear winner out of the Breakfast Of Champions, followed closely by Grapefruit Wit, Cocoa puffs Stout, and Wild Blueberry Pancake Ale. Kap'n Krunchberries on the other hand... JeeeeeeeSUS Christ! I feel like I made a pretty accurate deduction of the flavor profile...
    ***WARNING - NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART***
    It's tasted like Miller Lite mixed with grenadine, with a slight chemically aspartame kick to it. Absolutely horrible. Sorry Kuhnhenn. I love you but this was a BIG miss for me and everyone else I was with.

    Lucky Charms Lager tasted like those little marshmallows in liquid form. In other words, pure bliss.
     
  35. Lucky charms was the shit, I could drink that all day. I also enjoyed the Coco Puffs Stout, but it was still a distant second.

    Huge thanks to BeRanger for the sip of the BBFT, it was amazing. Good talking to some of you there.

    Yeah, the CP Stout was good. Also had the Cookie Crisp Dunkel, which was okay, and the Cinnamon Toast Crunch Ale, which tasted mostly like pure cinnamon. Overall, great time.

    Can someone please let me know when there is no line into the place and I can still get the breakfast beers on draft?

    EDIT: if there's an open bar seat, that'd be fantastic.
