    Still looking for a bottle of 15 if someone local has a bottle to spare from their allotment.

    Really wish school started a week later than it had. :angry:

    Just a quick heads-up to our friend from Dekalb who posted on Facebook and will be going to the event today. You don't know our group going, but we know you. If you act out of line at any point or make this event anything other than what it is on your description of the event if you are allowed back on BA, you will hear from us, and we will make ourselves known.

    Don't pull what you did at 4Elf and enjoy a fantastic event put on by an incredibly humble and amazing group of people today. Act responsibly, have fun, and don't ruin the event for those around you.

    You can refer back to several (locked) Dark Horse 4Elf party threads for some details. I don't want to derail this thread.

    Enjoy the event today everyone. Looking forward to seeing many familiar faces and sharing and enjoying fantastic beer!

    I really hope that no one is expecting a line at 10am or 11 or noon for that matter...that would be craziness!!!

    People acting tough on the internet. I'm sure that confidence translates well in the real world.

    Seriously, that guy was acting an ass at 4-elf, but there's always "that guy" at every beer event.

    What are you really going to do about it? I'm sure he's terrified of *hearing from you, and making yourselves known*

    If you had to deal with him the past two beer releases, you'd have the same feelings.

    Just so everyone is aware as they decide to come to the event exclusively to buy bottles of Fifteen: there was a line of VIPs about 100 deep as the first people in line outside were getting in at 3. Everyone seems to be getting their additional 4 bottle allotment.

    Fifteen in bottles or not, come support CW and take advantage of a spectacular taplist.

    Update: They are bringing out more as it runs low. Currently unknown how much is left. As the 18 cases wound down, they brought out 18 additional cases.

    Great party. Got let in for the VIP unexpectedly. 15 is delicious. All the BA beers are too with a year instead of 6 months. These guys guys came prepared for the crowd. Got some of the O'so releases yesterday too. They let us crack bottles at our table there. Overall an awesome weekend. And it's only 4:00 on Saturday! Might have a couple 15's for IP trade to some FIBS that couldn't make it. Hit me up. Now back to my Brewhouse Coffee Stout....

    Wish I could have hooked you up. Already left. Woodmans in the Northern part of the state has plenty, I expect the one closer to you should have some soon... And less expensive.

    In line for two hours to fall ten people short of getting any 15. Pretty redic they didnt give out tickets. Also watching "vips" go back in when they were saying 10 cases left right in front of us was just great

    Sorry to hear that. what time did you get there? I got there at 1:30 and got my 15 at 4:00. They said there was 32 cases left at that point.

    Any one know if they sold out of their other offerings like PM or BBBW? I saw lots of cases going out the door.

    Let's start the debate. Is it ok for locals to shut our everyone else? If someone "from Chicago" gets "60" bottles OMG LOCALS GOT SHUT OUT, but when locals get multiple allotments each it's ok?

    I frankly don't care either way.

    I was lucky enough to be able to buy 4 bottles of 15. I was in line by 2:30 and got to the end of the line at 4:30. After talking to a number of people, it seems like many of the VIP members were able to buy many more than the 6 they should have been able to purchase (2 during the VIP session & 4 after 3).
