A sour at stoutfest? why?
i got my beers mixed up
Finally around for this year's Stoutfest, can't wait to see what they have on tap. Recommendations for or against purchasing the breakfast tickets? Is it easy enough to get pours without?
If I remember correctly the tickets were around $120 last year and will likely be similar this year (with a quick sellout). That's a bit more than I'm willing to spend.
But there are some benefits....3 exclusive stouts for the b-fest (If I remember correctly Good Morning was one last year) that are extremely hard to get, and you get first crack at the rest of the line up. Also you won't have to stand inline to get in (which will happen if you don't have tickets). Plus the food will be tasty (I've always had good experiences here).
Like I said not for me, but If I were to go......I'd probably spend the money on breakfast tickets.
Stoutfest? More like next day 'runs'fest. Maybe that's just me, though. I love Armsby, killer food.
At the breakfast it was Give Me Truth not Good Morning. I think GM was poured at stoutfest 2 years ago right after the breakfast and was gone in.... 10 / 15 mins maybe?
Do you need tickets for the Sunday brunch. I can't make it on Saturday.
I've missed this the last two years... and will again next month. Always busy on Saturday... damn.
For the Sunday brunch, I know there's a line outside before open - how early should someone arrive to be reasonably confident they'll be sat during the first wave? 9am?
Don't tease me like that.
One of the better beer events I've experienced. Hopefully I can get a ticket this year
Tickets for the StoutFest Breakfast will go on sale 3/25 at 10am via Eventbrite. We used eventbrite last year and it seemed to work out better (mostly), for everyone. We'll post the eventbrite link soon as we're still working out a couple details.
I straight up died at this fest last year. So many good high-test stouts of incredible quality. Looking forward to bringing more friends along and spreading the love this year. One of my favorite beer events!
Worth the $120 then?
I don't typically attend the breakfast, I just line up an hour and a half before the fest starts usually and forgo the meal.
I love Stoutfest!
Since AA has spun off Crust, I wonder if the pizza will be around anymore...that pizza is part of the experience for me and my buddies.
Nothing has change with Crust/Armsby relationship. We sold Crust to our head baker. All is right with the world
This is an event not to be missed for sure. Highest quality stouts in all the land. Price of breakfast has priced me out of attendance but I will be there fo' sho' Sunday afternoon.
A few years ago @thedivebar you had some Hoppin' Frog BA Boris on the list. Has that even made the rotation? I don't recall it being tapped. Once of my favorites! Hoping this year is the year of the Frog at Armsby!
Sorry man. While I won't tell you what IS going to be pouring I will tell you Boris will not be.
Anything else added to the breakfast event for the tag to be $145 plus fees? Hate to bring up prices, but that's just crazy.
I had a lot fun last year, but it looks like I'll pass for this years.
Not sure I've ever seen what the pairings are at the breakfast. What were the 3 beers last year?
Last year was 2013 Hill Farmstead Birth of Tragedy, 2014 Banded Horn BA Mountain, and Tree House Give Me Truth.
Hill Farmstead 2013 Birth of Tragedy, Banded Horn 2014 BA Mountain, and Tree House Give Me Truth.
Good times last year. I'm pretty sure is going to be just as good this year, but sometimes you have to draw the line on how much you're willing to spend.
Wow, just noticed that all 3 stouts at the breakfast are from the same brewery. At the top of the page it says "3 Rare Stouts / 3 Epic Courses / 1 World Class Brewer" whereas last year it said "3 Stouts / 3 Brewers / 3 Courses".
I assume it just about has to be either Tree House or Hill Farmstead?
If I was betting, it will be Shaun Hill as he has been there the past 2 years ever since they went to this mystery stout / meet the brewer format.
Able to do a flight or full pours only?
It's been a year but I don't recall flights at last year's Stoutfest. I could be remembering incorrectly. It's tight quarters in there and the bartenders are already swamped, anyhow.
They do flights and full pours
Thanks guys...$150 is a little steep for me. Any clue when people not attending the formal breakfast start lining up? I image the place is a madhouse.
And its sold out
Pretty sure people were outside at 10am last year
Nope. You can still get one.
I might go later that day. Taplist is always solid. I forgot ANTEAD pick up is also in that weekend.
With Casita Cerveceria making an appearance, perhaps Shaun and Ryan will be also
BA Archaism was delicious. Great Job with that beer.
Slightly less Hill than expected, but there's a lot of stuff people might be sleeping on that seems amazing on there... very much looking forward to the post-breakfast bar-rush and subsequent drinking endeavor!
