    I'll be Santa the Pirate, stabbing any scallywag linejumpers with my sword or grabbing them with my hook hand.

    Sounds difficult, but I'd probably fap to it.

    As stated above, there is NO need to get there super early (or camp out or any of the other bullshit that ruined KBS day).

    Be smart and be respectful and don't ruin yet another beer party / release.

    I know there was a lot of bitching/bickering/boasting in the threads surrounding KBS day, but I remember the actual event itself being pretty fun (other than the fact that it was balls cold). How was it "ruined"? I'm confuse.

    Is that a serious question? All of that madness (fueled by the campers and "hypers" in my opinion) caused them to change to ticketed releases.... and now all that fun you had will never happen again.

    If 4 elf turns in to the same kind of shitshow, another fun event is going to also be ruined for the future.

    Not to change the subject, but is anyone going to Eccentric Day at Bell's on Friday? I figure I can dress like an elf both days and kill two birds with one stone.

    DLD turned into a ticketed event and, IMO, has been just as fun, if not more so, than the previous, unticketed years...

    Just sayin'.

    Is it poor etiquette to ask someone who doesn't want to buy their full allottment of BBL Plead the 5th to grab a few extras for me?

    But it's still one day to attend whereas Founders' releases will be spread out (which is fine by me though -- you can't manage or satisfy the overwhelming demand of craft beer nowadays).

    If I wake up Saturday morning, and I read that there were 300 people in line by some ridiculous hour, I'm going to be legitimately pissed off. Go between 11 & 3 like the brewery says, get your token, & get ready for a good time.

    Honestly, I've never seen a "community" that does so much to hurt itself.

    Nothing has been confirmed by Founders as to what they are going to do other than it will be ticketed. Since KBS was always more of an event than their other releases, maybe it will be an all day event. Only speculation is around at this point.

    I retract my last statement (if it turns out to be untrue). Otherwise, I stand by what I said. ;)

    I've never had a bad time or felt like my experience was ruined at a beer release. 2012 KBS day is ticketed event because a 1000+ people showed up not because people lined up early. Before KBS day founders posted they didnt mind if people camped or got in line early. They simply don't want 1000 people to show up if they only have beer for 250. These events are so easy to have fun at if you have a positive mentality :)

    Why is it less expensive to buy 6x BBPt5 4-packs than a case?

    I think there's a typo on BB Monster bottle size... those are supposed to be 12 oz.

    Monster 29 (Imperial Barleywine): 37 cases/1 – 4 pack limit – $26 a 4 pack/$7 a bottle
    BBL Monster 29 (Imperial Barleywine): 73 cases (750ml bottles)/2-4 pack limit – $30 a 4 pack/ $8 a bottle

    Something seems off here? Can't imagine there being 4 packs of 750s. I'm going to assume BBL Monster 29 is in 12oz bottles, correct?

    It isn't. 4 pks are $22. Six 4 pks would be $132.

    If anybody doesn't have enough money to get all of their Monster and BB Monster, let me know. I'm sure we can work out a deal that'll help us both.

    Having said that, I will not have sex with old ladies or deal with beartraps. Those are my two bugaboos.

    I had made a wishlist and then realize I could have saved time just copy and pasting the entire allotment into a document with the title, "I'll take anything I can get"
