    I have never weighed in on the bs you have posted before on here, but thinking CW is trying to nickel and dime people. You my friend are the king of the idiots!

    Edit: and why are you worried you can get cases of 15 at your local store, right?

    I'm with you, to some extent. I didn't buy any draft this year, but with 4 bottles of 15 I will get my share on tap!

    Bourbon Barrel aged Scotch Ale scratched from the tap list. I personally am disappointed because I am a big scotch ale fan and a fan of CWs regular Salinte scotch ale.

Please share the news with beer geeks you know....Thanks" - on Marc's FB page (not O'sos)

    For those of you who plan to show up and wait outside in the cold before 3 PM when the doors open to the public, the brewery said that it is against village ordinances for there to be a bottle share outside. Please, DO NOT be "that guy" (or girl) that gets them in trouble!!!!! Save your bottles for opening at the party.

    I'm pretty sure that the individual and not the business would get cited here. That's like saying if I go crack a 40 oz. of OE in front of a 7/11 that they'd get cited for my having an open intoxicant in their parking lot. Of course, I'd have to take a look at said ordinance in order to know for sure :wink:

    Well the individual may be cited, but I'm sure the local authorities would look at Central Waters differently if they had 40 asshole outside drinking out of brown bags. Either way, respect their wishes.

    This is definitely what SHOULD happen in that case; however, in Chicago if a liquor establishment is throwing an event and a bunch of people are drinking outside they can lose their liquor license regardless of whether or not they were condoning the act. This also could be completely different in Amherst.

    It doesn't matter who gets in trouble. They asked not to do it, so don't.

    O'so is selling Bourbon Barrel Night Train and a sour (too lazy to look up name), right now.

    I'm going for the first time, I chose the event since it has a reputation for being pretty relaxed, well organized, and not a total beer geek campout shitshow. Is the reputation accurate? Or am I gonna be shut out for tap and bottle purchases because I'm not sleeping in the parking lot tonight?

    Just to back up JEgross (thanks for calling by the way) - the village has strict rules on drinking on our property - if you are drinking outside on the brewery property we can be cited - they have all sorts of ordinances in place that we are not approved for. I will ask you to pour if I come out and find you drinking. If you want to drink off of our property it is your own risk. Please wait to open beers until inside so I can stay on good terms with the village. This isn't like other events - you can share inside instead of in line. Some last minute changes - you guys will have access to the lab bathroom still this year - but will not be able to hang out in the room. The brewer's wash room has been cleared out and we have a bunch of tables and chairs set up for you guys in the packaging hall adjacent to those rooms. Just ask at the door if you haven't been here before! See you all tomorrow.
