    No Assassin on tap unfortunately. It all went to bottles or special projects.

    We're trying hard to make everything run smooth this year. We're setting up a bunch of things for future releases, but they just aren't in the cards this time around. Hopefully everyone can have a great time and can have some patience with the release!

    Hope these are reasonable: Darklord, Darkness 09 & 10, King Henry, The Abyss?

    Yeah a lot's going to depend on the volume of people that show up, which is difficult to predict, and how they behave. I think giving out numbers to people in line is a great idea.

    Hopefully they'll be using some sort of ticketing system to make sure people don't pick up their limit, put them the bottles in the car and get right back in line to buy more. It'd be nice if everyone was honest at these releases and didn't try and figure a way around the bottle limit, but there always seems to be a few people who find a way around the system to get as many bottles as possible using the old "I'm getting them for trading partners" excuse to justify their actions.

    depends on what the crowd is like and how many extra you get. I went back for seconds at Steel Toes Lunker release, however you can still go get more bottles at the tap room, and I could tell by the meager crowd they weren't going to be running out any time soon. However with the CW15 release, that is a different story.

    I suppose, but my understanding is that TG is hoping to have this beer last through the weekend (and possibly even send a few bottles out to stores/bars in the markets they will be distributing to). I know a few people are going on Sunday in the hopes of getting some bottles. If everyone on Saturday is going back for 2nd's that will severly decrease the chances of those going on Sunday getting bottles.

    I guess my only point is, if the brewery says 6 bottles per person per day, then people should honor the limits. It should be up to the brewery to up the limits if there is enough to go around.

    I want morning delight....I don't really care about Assassin...not sure I can justify the cost of the fuel and possible hotel just for 2 bottles of MD

    Decisions, decisions

    I've got all my beer spoken for. Sorry, it was quick :)

    They'll fill up any growler with the government warning on it.

    I'll be keeping my eyes on this thread for bottle count left... I have to drive from Rochester to Fond du Lac and back in a day. More than likely will swing through if some bottles are left, but that wouldn't be until probably 6pm or 7pm....

    Thank you very much....we make many mistakes in our brewery too, we just try not to serve them. We appreciate the feedback and look forward to putting a smile on your face after that first drink of the day for years to come!

    I had a red wax bottle with one of the TG brewers at Darkness day last year. It was an awesome beer and I really hope to get one with this year's release!

    You guys are hardcore!!!

    Question to TG Crew, where else can we park besides the tap house lot? I'm not sure if it was covered on the official website or not?

    I should hopefully be there around 7:30pm or so tonight, if any BA's will still be there.

    Won't be able to make it there. :( If someone from the Twin Cities can pick one up for me, I have a Sexual Chocolate to offer; if that's not of interest we can talk about something else.

    I can't seem to update the trade list from my phone. I am also bringing a bottle of surly smoke and pentagram if anyone is interested.
