    Wanted to thank Clonies, codyhaskell, and canadianghetto for the trades as well. Sorry I had to book, but after working all night and driving to San Antonio, I was completely toast by 1:00.

    Drinking a Citra Homebrew someone gave me today (no idea who) and its damn good.

    This has been a fantastic week for beer. In addition to my three KBS and three Parabola, I left the bottle share today with:

    ...in addition to trying like 30 awesome beers and having a pour of one of my all time favorites, WBADPP. :D

    Thanks again to starkmarvelo and canadianghetto! <3

    The bottle share was insane... I was mostly stalking Loons while people were distracted by other beers. Couldnt believe some of the beers that were just sitting around unloved.

    canadianghetto (Will) is a good guy. He threw a Bruery Sour in the Rye in my lap while I was getting in my car to leave.

    You put a bag (Czech Store?) on the table by the glass, the wind inflated the bag, and the bag blew into his glass, which got knocked over by it! Aside from the actual breaking, the sequence of events is just so absurd that it's kinda funny.

    sorry clonies

    I could see 2 years from now it being a farking necessity to be there that early. Has a Freetail beer EVER sold out same day? (in 2 hours, in fact)

    Wasn't it one hour? Just about a line and a half's worth of people, too :( (meaning that most people bought at or near the bottle limit).

    Not for anything above a couple hundred bottles as far as I know. Everything used to sell out before they got a bottling line and did limited amounts by hand.

    Was it an hour?

    Time was fuzzy today. I had to take a nap before driving back to Austin to sleep off some of the "bliss" I was feeling.

    And I lost 2 tasters. I think that's the sign of a really good tasting, lol.

    That's what it seemed like to me, and I think that somebody else mentioned it being about an hour on the last page. I too took a good nap after nearly falling asleep at a table. Then I got some whataburger and tried to nap some more, but I was too full. ...shameful.

    EDIT: AT 1:05, not IN 1:05. Woops. more shame.

    Who made that homebrew sour? Absolutely incredible. May have been the best beer I tried all day (and there were some great beers on on hand).

    The Cuvée de Tomme clone? That was Jonathan. He's an awesome home brewer. He comes to our monthly BA tasting in Austin.

    Yeah, that stuff is world class. He's probably sick of me telling him that, lol.

    Kmello69: I still have some extra beer I want to give you. I didn't have it with me at the time though. BM me your phone number and I'll call or text you ahead of time when I'm coming down to Austin for the day. Did you wax that doggie claws bottle yourself?

    I didn't. Try emailing me at ben.kalziqi@gmail.com. Judging by what you quoted, I'm not sure I want to see it @_@.

    Yeah man, come to Austin sometime and we'll hang. I'm more fun when I haven't been working all night and am slightly hammered, lol. I'm usually off Sunday/Monday (farking hospitality business).

    Got tonight off. Glad I did because I'm still slightly hung over and staring at a half drank growler of Austin Beerworks Black IPA that needs to be drank.

    I kept it real stealthy in an Uncle Billy's growler. Should've labeled it.

    I nearly busted out a Hops & Grain Zoe and the Heady Topper staring at me when I opened the fridge at home.

    Ate a salmon salad for dinner to counterbalance dat lunch...That meathead pizza and crab mushrooms were tasty.

    Counted my check ins on Untappd, and the final total was 42 for the day (including 2 full pints in line - Pechecus and Ananke 2012). Fantastic!

    Some amazing generosity out there today, folks. Especially bentwookie, who let us continue to raid his cooler long after 11 - Pugachevs Cobra, BCBCS, Pentagram and Ivan the Terrible, among others, came out late in the day, all thanks to him.

    I'll send ya my # - text at will. When you do, make sure to remind me of your name, since I suck at remembering things after I've had about 80 ounces of big beers..... ;)

    Yeah, I wax all of my bottles now, unless its something I'll be drinking right away. Keeps the air out, and I like the way it looks.

    I'm really sad that I only had a 375ml Crooked Stave origins. Thought it was one of the best beers of the day. It was all I had... But coming soon I"ll have a full lineup of Crooked stave beers coming out June 2nd.

    Damn, I'm sorry but I just saw this. I'm in Austin if you'd still like to trade. Not sure what I'm really after but if you want to PM me I'm sure we could work something out. Also, be gentle. Trade virgin here. Thanks for the interest either way.

    Holy shit. We got our max at 1pm. I saw a few bottles left in the box but had no idea that it was about to be done with and how lucky I was.

    Definitely need to pick some more up when I'm in Colorado in 2 weeks if I can find it. As I said, that's world class that just sits around in other states.
