    Thanks man, but like Ilovestouts, I also did not enter. I haven't missed a new HF beer in 2+ years and will just keep making the drive every few weeks (and let someone that is not within driving distance have a chance).

    Oh, and I'm already regretting this horrible decision.

    (I want that wooden crate!)

    I'm in too though it doesn't say anything about payment? I'm guessing that will be in the additional details?

    This is just plain evil. I've learned that this sort of rejection is best handled with a high gravity ale or two in hand.

    Also 3 hrs ahead of the west coast, so that could be it.

    Same here. I was so excited about being up there, having loads of HF on tap, and getting Norma bottles that I completely missed that the entry deadline was March 1 and not on Sunday. Fingers already crossed that there's another entry round at some point in the future and that I get lucky then!

    Franch, hopefully you can find some meaning in your life that I didn't get it.

    If I led such an existence, I'd probably be happy, in turn, that my actions got 200+ more people entered that kept you out.

    I don't know, their 'loon stock is a little thin at the moment - nothing exotic up there...

    Congrats to all the winners. Just be good people and drink/share them instead of whoring them out on the trade market.

    Congrats guys! I didn't enter myself; I don't think I can make it up there in August. But it's been a fun read and I'm glad to see at least some BAs get included in the club. Enjoy.

    I wish I wasn't at work right now lol. A nice huge glass of whiskey and a nap would be in order to not think about how much driving I'm going to be doing now bc I can't miss a couple of these brews.

    Congrats to everyone though. I'm sure you'll all enjoy the hell out of it. Hope the next one is less of a lottery and more of an effort. I love going above and beyond lol.

    Congrats to those chosen by beer jesus to be his new disciples. Hopefully you find the direction and meaning that was previously missing from your life. For those not chosen, continue to drink the elixer from a HF branded wine glass and seek salvation.
