You didn't go through the line twice?
curious, but did anyone actually manage to get through the line twice to get double allotment? Seems to me all you had to do was make it seem like your wristbands were not cut.
My guess is remainders go to volunteers, friends, and family. Some gets stashed away for VIPs that visit the brewery. Oh, and you see on-site consumption bottles pop up at Warpigs in Denmark too.
Pretty sure they scanned our bands as we went through the line right?
Volunteers get 1 bottle of normal. Variants too? (at Warpigs?)
my band was never scanned, just wrist band cut
They definitely scanned my band as I was entering the brewery for bottle pickup, and then when I got the bottles they cut it.
This is why we can’t have nice things.
Not a fan of the wristband cutting. Being around hundreds of drunk people(of which you may be one) and having a blade put against your wrist to snip a piece of fabric sounds like an accident/lawsuit waiting to happen.
That's the standard, but I wouldn't be surprised if a few long term volunteers/closer friends of the brewery walk away with a little more.
How is this still a thread?
I went through line 3 times but used 3 different wristbands. Had 2 people bail out the night before and didn't want to bother finding someone else. Also one person still wanted to pay for their allotment so I had to mule it for them.
They cut a specific part of the wristband off, which had a different color and had the Group letter listed, so no way you could get two allotments with one wristband. If your wristband was on too loose to cut that part they tightened it and cut it.
1. There was no need to have your wristband scanned at the festival entrance or "activated" in order to pick up an allotment.
2. There seemed to be no way for them to actually validate the name on the wristband, so you could totally re-sell it to anyone or enter without your guest it seemed.
3. I just cut one wristband off with a scissors, slid the other on, and went through allotment line again. They did scan the wristband at the entrance to the bottle pickup area just before you go up the stairs, but I suppose it would be possible for some people to sneak past.
4. Before handing you the allotment they grabbed the loose end of the wristband and cut off the portion that shows your sales group.
5. Not sure on this one, but it seems you probably could have entered through the re-entry gate even on your first entry as long as you didn't want to bring any beer in. I don't think their scanners did anything other than validate it was a valid wristband. I don't think the system was sophisticated enough to track if you went through the main entrance, already got your allotment etc..
I can't speak to all the staff in the warehouse but the guy clipped my wristband with a pair of scissors rather than something like a bowie knife or similar.
Lucky. This was the guy who cut mine off:
I went through A group pick-up, was probably one of the first 50 through. In the morning they had really crappy safety scissors that didn't really work. By the time my friend went through Group C, they were using normal scissors.
A friend of mine put his wrist band on in the morning and cut off the excess. He had a lot of fun explaining that to the staff when he went to go pick up his beer.
I heard someone talking about that in the bottle pick-up line. Was he successful?
Yea pretty sure the majority goes to WarPigs, they like to take care of the people in Denmark for sure.
Yes. Took a lot of convincing though.
Just won a handjee for 8 bucks. Sweet
That's only legal in certain parts of Nevada, I wouldn't put that out there for the world to see...
Another happy ending!
How many sleeps until DLD 2019?
Yesterday was my buddys birthday so we opened HDNQ, Handjob, and Spaceforce.
I only took a sip of spaceforce from someones pour at the festival so the bottle was like a new experience for me. Probably the most coffee influenced beer I've ever had. I wonder which coffee was used because it tasted straight up like Crack the Skye trapped in Dark Lords body.
HDNQ was a totally different experience than at the festival too. At DLD I only got one pour and I didnt let it warm enough to do it justice. So last night I gave it its proper treatment and man was it rewarding. I went into the fest wanting this as my variant. I got chemtrail and traded it for HDNQ. The rye is still subtle but as it warms and the dry grassy alcohol burn of the whiskey shows up a little bit, it compliments the beer so well. Nothing appeals to me more than a straight up barrel aged stout and this ended up being a gem for me.
Handjee speaks for itself. Sweet and still gets the best barrel treatment out of all of the variants.
HDNQ won the night for me although Handjee is a more exciting experience.
And yet still no turtledogg feedback...
I traded one Hung for a bottle of Ballerstout, a Murda'd Out Stout, and a Cognac Moloko (#17/564)....we had 2 so what the hell.
Wait, is Crack the Skye barrel aged?
It's the wax that's barrel aged, right? Or is it the glitter in the wax that is barrel aged.
If they both are, is that double barrel?
Ah yes, the paradox of Shrodinger's Coffee Stout....
think its over....I posted my trade for sole purpose of keeping the fun going lol
Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? NO!!!!!!
Ahah. I always wondered why the Hawaiians built the Berlin Wall.
Wasn’t it to keep out their vice: sour, low ABV beers with fruit syrup dropped in?
Did anyone at DLD try the Gose freezes?
Edit: Sorry it was a Berliner Weiss slushy.
