    okay so you implied that I didn't have respect? and you still have not listened to any of my points? how It wasn't entitled...

    We have been over this and you have called me several different usernames. I don't know what these people did to you but I didn't do it so I don't see your point. If you want to make up a giant conspericy theory that's fine but it's not true.
    I don't thinks it's a good idea going around insulting people and acting like you know everything but that's just me. Like I said before I'm not going to talk about this he said she said stuff anymore because it is distracting from the point of this thread
    good bye

    They had a limited menu when they let us in last year if I recall correctly. Mostly..... pizza?

    Hate to break the news that you and The Mayor are wrong, but you are:
    Edit: looks like The Mayor mentioned that it was allowed a few posts ago, so I didn't "break the news", but here it is in writing from Dark Horse.

    Don't mind being wrong on occasion. Good information.

    I honestly didn't want to say anything as I would prefer they didn't allow it, but once everyone argued about it for a full page I figured that at least everyone should know the right answer.

    Well that is a welcome change from last year. I do believe I was clear that all this information was based on last year :)

    I'm not even sure I care to bottle share in line. Last year I had a couple beers in the pub while we waited until 3 pm and there was only 20 minutes in between drinking in the pub and drinking in the facility. Once you get in the facility and wait in line for bottles, everybody is cool with you getting out of line to get something on draft and bringing it back to your spot in line.

    I am with you. So much good beer at the event. Rather would wait to consume all of it versus filling up/getting drink on other stuff first.

    The wait staff seemed to have no problem with us sharing beers inside the brewpub last year before the event. Even gave us glasses. Maybe we got a laid back server.

    Once inside the event, is a line even necessary this year? Dark Horse has said that they will be checking token numbers once you are up at the front. I would much rather be hanging out at the tables and enjoying the event now that I know I won't have to be waiting for the beer.
  18. lurchingbeast

    lurchingbeast Initiate (0) Illinois Feb 19, 2009

    Yes, you line up according to your number.
  19. JohnB87

    JohnB87 Savant (325) Michigan Mar 14, 2011

    Yes, I understand that is what we did last year, but last year it was all self regulated. This year, Dark Horse has said that they will be checking token numbers. My question would be as to why would everybody have to stand in line? Why not just enjoy the party and then when your number is close, get into line?
  20. lurchingbeast

    lurchingbeast Initiate (0) Illinois Feb 19, 2009

    "Once you get into the production facility, you will line up again in order of your token number at the special beer bottle release purchase line."

    I'm sure they don't want to be waiting on everyone to mosey on over to the line when they think their number is close. You went last year, you know how loud and spread out this party is.

    Has anybody had 2011 BBP5T recently? How is it holding up compared to fresh? I'm all out of bottles so I may pick up a 4-pack if I can at 4 Elf. Is it better with some time on it?

    Still tastes amazing. Had one a few weeks ago. Hasn't seemed to change much IMHO.

    Wasnt going to say the same thing as Cam, it's drinking wonderfully right now. I have one bottle left for consumption and quite a few in the cellar. I'm looking forward to the party this year guys.

    I personally think 2011 BA Plead has fallen off drastically. I've shared multiple bottles with various BAs and tried some of theirs and think it is a shell of its former awesomeness. Just my personal opinion.

    in honor of this I will bring some bottles to share with you as a peace offering. I'm sure if we met in person we would get along great. Are you cool with that?

    Out of the case and a half I've drank in the last year and many samples from tap in between to compare, I've only had 1-2 sub-par bottles of BA Pt5 that tasted too much like ethanol (boozy rocket fuel).

    I think it's still delicious and imperial stouts are not something I typically drink on my own.

    As it states in your post, you can hang out in the beer garten or TAP ROOM once you have received you token.

    Facebook I believe... the "like" tab/button would be the indicator. Plus the color scheme is very much like the mobile app I use.

    Yep, given the attitude of some people in this thread, despite my fond love of many of you, I will be taking my business to the Livery that day, as this event will end up all gintered. Perhaps I I will see some of you at Eccentric Day Friday.
