    Looks like I should be attending all four Clusterforks this year. Can't wait. These are right up there for me in terms of favorite beer events of the year.

    I was only able to secure July tickets and as my first cluster.. I am stoked!
    With FW invitational, Stone sourfest and July Clusterfork... June and July are shaping up to be a fun few months of drinking beers with friends.

    Looks like we will be spending a lot of "quality" time together.

    Remember there are two sessions next Sunday, so you may want to indicate which one you are going to. I'm going to the 3:30 session and will probably bring a '13 Dark Lord and a Permanent Funeral.

    Is there anywhere to pick up 12 bottle styro shippers near the Bruery?

    My local BevMo stopped selling them. They only sell these crappy 6 bottle styro bottle carriers.

    Depends on your definition of near. The BevMo in orange carries 12 bottle pulp shippers, TW in brea has 12 bottle styros occasionally, and Box Zone in orange has them every so often (their price kinda sucks, but the 6 bottle shippers they sell are modular so you can stick two side by side in an appropriately sized box).

    It's held where they brew beer. Walk around the silo and the doors will be open.

    Thanks again for the awesome bottleshare.

    I'm going to have to skip on some of the awesome barrel aged stuff next time. I didn't feel well after my ride arrived.

    It was ok - I brought it more as a novelty and didn't expect much, but it was surprisingly drinkable (the nose was initially kind of musty, but the hops still came through nearly 20 years later).

    I was skeptical attending my first Clusterfork yesterday (late session). I've always thought that it was just a really expensive bottleshare, so it always puzzled me that they sell out so quickly. Now I get it. Easily the most fun beer event that I've been to. So much great camaraderie. Big praise to Navy Tim who rocked Veritas 006 and 3 Fontenein 4'Armand! Also the great guy (sorry, forgot your name) who graced us with Cigar City 100K+OT Batch 2! So many other fantastic beers, St. Lamvinus, '13 DL, BB 4D, Eclipse '11 Grand Cru, CBS, KBS, that giant f'in growler of Hill Farmstead Everett, and the list goes on! I only wish that I hadn't entirely burned all of my tastebuds off with that damn Habanero Humulus Lager.

    There are still tickets available for the second session 3:30-6:30, but if you only need one I got you covered for the early session 12:00-3:00 as a thank you for the YMBBIF.

    Anyone have an extra ticket for the 1-3 pm session? I have a 3-6 pm ticket however I would rather attend the earlier one instead.
    I can trade/transfer mine or offer beer/cash. Thank you!
