    I don't see a thread for the event and/or any events on Assassin Day eve. Does anyone have any info on the events going on Friday night? Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Safehouse Saloon in Lansing, Iowa will have a keg of Assassin for Friday. You will need a ticket for a pour and I think they are sold out by now. They also said they will have a premium tap list and other TG beers for sale to-go. Also, any remaining Assassin pours (of whoever bought pour tickets but never claimed them as well as whatever is left of the keg even if all tickets are claimed) will be sold first come first served on Saturday. Detailed info is on their facebook page.

    Good fellas also announced their keg release but not sure if sold out or not yet. T-bocks said they are releasing details on March 1st.

    So I didn't book a hotel for the Assassin release. I know...I didn't plan ahead. Has anybody ever camped in Decorah state parks for the Assassin release? I'm hoping to make it there Friday for Assassin trappings.

    That adds another question, where should I go for the Assassin tapping? I never been out there. I would consider other cities inn IA near Decorah. Obviously Lansing is off the list since tickets sold out.

    Most of the tappings are ticketed and have sold out. T-Bocks had said theirs would be announced on March 1st. Rubiyat (sp) has yet to announce theirs as well, but it was a $100 ticket tapping/bottle share/appetizers. It sounds like there will be Assassin on tap at the brewery at public open at 5 pm. How much will be on tap has yet to be heard.

    The one that has been announced that may still have tickets is Goodfellas in Waucon, IA (about a 20-30 minute drive, if I recall correctly). I would try checking in with them.

    Good Fellas in Waucon is sold out. My buddies and I will be their Friday night if anyone else is headed there. They also will have other TG beers on tap as well.

    It's Waukon you outta state hillbillies. I too will be drinking plenty of Assassin at Goodfella's on Friday.

    Not positive, but I'd assume most of the campgrounds will still be closed in March.

    I had to check on this as a friend and I are planning on camping. Pulpit Rock Campground will start taking reservations March 1 with the first day for camping March 30 depending on the weather. Here's to hoping for good weather!

    Coming in solo from Los Angeles and booked the last AirBnB in Decorah a month or so ago. It's for Friday night only but it's 1 bedroom and has 2 futons in the living room. PM me if you need a place to stay and we can work something out.

    With mention of vintage bottles and variants, 20 hours maybe late. I am debating if I should take off just the week before or 2 weeks before to camp out.

    I think he was referring to the Google document.

    Looking for 2 to 3 people to join in on a bottle share in Decorah the weekend of Assassin release. Me and a buddy have the following beers we are bringing
    Side Project BBT
    Side Project BACSV
    Maman 17
    BA Sump 18

    Looking to add in any of the following bottles
    Iwaad b1 or b2
    Scooop
    Bake
    BA RR
    Tape Rock
    Anabasis b1
    ManBearPig
    Handjee (any year)

    We are open to several others as well so PM if you have some other options and are interested. I know some of these are more valuable than what we listed to bring but if you are looking to share it and try some other good beers, then this may be of interest.

    To be clear, no cost or trade. We will open all bottles and evenly split amongst the group. We won't split them between more than 5 people so healthy pours for all. This will be Friday night, March 30th. We are staying at Country Inn & Suites and can have it there or we are open to other locations.

    I'm looking for a place to crash either night. If you're willing to split a place to crash let me know. (Life as a manager, didn't know if I could attend until yesterday).

    If anyone has a room that fits 4 that they plan on canceling please pm me. Currently have something in Cresco but would like to stay closer and possibly join a share after picking up pours from Good Fellas on the way in Friday. Thanks!

    You aren't going to find anything closer than Cresco, unless Calmar has a hotel I'm blanking out.

    Save your appetite, and go up to Atomic Pizza when you're in Cresco. I like it better than Mabe's, and they have a solid tap list. It's all thick crust pan pizza, and it kills. Goes down great with a fresh Sue.

    Meant to quote/reply to the cancellation comment before mine. Not overly concerned about staying outside of Decorah but figured if someone cancels wouldn’t mind taking their room. Thanks for the food tip though.
