    Can anyone tell me what time I should be to Bissell brothers on the days they release swish. I want to make sure I get some. Also what is the normal allotment per person.

    I'm thinking there's a certain level of fatigue with the 'what time should I get to [insert brewery name]' threads.

    s'OK. I'll take this one...

    Depends on the day. On a weekday, if you get there an hour before open, you should be one of the first five people in line or, for no apparent reason, you may be all the way back to the corner of the building - but you'll definitely get beer. On a Saturday, especially if it's a Swish day, same thing only an hour or two earlier.

    I'm going on Wednesday so it's almost guaranteed to be awful.

    this past saturday, per twitter, there was still plenty of swish at 2 pm. I went to the wednesday release a few weeks ago and was in and out at 1230. I'd say being there before noon or a little after would guarantee you swish.
