    with a 1 bottle limit I'd guess it will last for a few days at least, no?

    Sent the wife over. No line. I didn't realize it was $35 until after she bought it, but I am a homer for
    Fff, so it's all good.

    yeah wow... $35 is up there... I'd hate to drop that much $$$ and then have it taste like Biggs' Stache or some of their other pretty questionable barrel stuff... HMMMMM....

    I would be very interested in hearing how this actually tastes for those picking it up to, you know, actually drink the stuff inside.

    I <3 Deesko on draft (with syrup!) has left me a bit weary of FFF sours...

    Don't drink all the barrel Ice Grille, heathens. I'll be there on Thursday and I want some! Doubt Priest lasts, unfortunately. And, no ZD til a week from tomorrow. Booourns.

    Why stagger the release, especially if you want to make it a legit 1 per person? Just gives "repeaters" the chance to come back tomorrow. #FFFmakesNoSense

    I wonder if they have one of these inflatables lying around in back:

    $35/750 ML. 1 per.
    Say 4 gallons of gas round trip from Chicago at $3.75/gal

    That's a real cost of $50/bottle.

    Lower bottle count compared to BA Vanilla Dark Lord

    Ergo, my calculations estimate 2 hours till ISO: BA Vanilla DL. FT: Battle Priest (+will throw in a heady topper/KBS)?

    I will just paypal you the $50, even throw in an extra $5 so you can grab a Value Meal on the ride down. Will send you a shipping label too. #goandpickitupformebro

    If this is true, FFF is more moronic than I thought. ONE PER PERSON. But we're gonna do it multiple days, so yall come back real soon now, yahear?
