    The problem is when line cutters appear. The 2011 CFH release, this was a big issue. Last year they passed out tickets much earlier and it wasn't a problem. Also, they had nearly 2x as many bottles so showing up as early and the fine line cutters (there are alwasy a few who sneak in) didn't have a big impact.

    As for a big party? Alesmith line releases were great for being able to drink in line. During CFH release (really the emphasis is the Renaissance event) there are some people drinking. But Ivan has asked there not to be as the place is right along a busy road, and police did come by to check out the line. It would suck for Ivan to get in trouble and possibly have to shut down the event just because some people cannot wait a little bit to drink beer.

    I think if everyone knew for a fact that they were going to get bottles that's how it would be. The threat of being shut-out is what generates the rage.

    I think the rage comes form the fact that some people wait in the line for hours only to see some jackass dive into line in front of them.

    Yeah that is fine in theory until all the BA's with their mules in tow to sell beers on ebay get shafted, then they get angry. Then non-sellers get angry about all the seller mules. Then everyone gets pissy. Normally I would say they get butthurt, but that was already used in this thread. I guess we could say that release was loose butthole?

    Pfffftt...I've been running an identity theft ring just to corner the market on Alesmith releases. Good luck beating my botnet on submitting your orders.

    You know you're buying a 6 pack of that. I hear they used PvW flavoring.

    Delicious! I really like PvW extract flavoring. Tastes like Mr. Pibb.

    I really hope the ease of buying the bottles is not reflected in the Rare flavor contained within. Meaning it won't taste as good.

    One way to get around that is to use Chrome, which allows you to switch to the non-mobile site on your phone. It's a terrible experience, but works in a pinch.

    [edit]: evilc, I think I tried that some months ago for something else and it kept kicking me back to the mobile site.

    I would advise against using iphones in general because they suck at web browsing. Force you into their custom browser all too often.

    It wasn't too bad. Copy and paste is miraculous.

    I found a link to the full site on the front page and worked perfectly.
    That's my biggest gripe with most pages. They force you into their mobile site, and then make it a bitch to get to the full site. :/

    I got 4 of the PooStout, and had to resist the Numbskull since I know nothing of barleywines. How is normal Numbskull as far as the style?

    Got some. Luckily I saw this thread. Heard about the release and had been searching bpt events for alesmith, speedway, etc and didn't see anything. So, thanks, and I only got 2 of each so take it easy.

    It's funny you say that, because I've heard three different employees of Alesmith specifically call it by that name.
