  3. In for Friday. I maintained radio silence. Seems that's how all the other boards do things.

    I'll be there on Friday! Hoping they have tweak and some of my other favorites. Love me some Lost Abbey rarities as well! Did anyone else think the Avery room was phenominal last year? That could be a fest in itself.

    Got mine for Friday - I've found things tend to run out a little faster on the Saturday session - just get what you want right away if you're going that day.

    I'm really stoked about what might be there this year. There have been a lot of great local releases this year across Colorado, so it might be really special this time around. Good call on the Avery taps, too, I always overlook them and something taps that I wanted to try.

    Looking forward to seeing all the BA's I've met in 2012.

    I decided not to get tickets last minute this morning because I read that they're only doing 16 pours (which sounds frustrating), and then I changed my mind.

    Going Friday.
     
  30. How big were the pours last year?
     
  31. Steve_0

    Steve_0 Savant (275) Colorado Mar 14, 2012

    They always only do 16 pours, but you always get more.
     
  32. Steve_0

    Steve_0 Savant (275) Colorado Mar 14, 2012

    You will get plenty, believe me.

    Yah, you just have to shake it 'til they can't take it :eek:
     
  35. Just got a Friday ticket as well. A night of only high-ABV beers? Uh oh.

    16 ~4oz pours. By the end of the festival, people are giving away unwanted tickets if you can handle more after that.
     
  37. Yeah, that's what the sour fest was like. I ended up with more like 22 pours. But I don't think I can handle that with strong ales.
