It’s called “lost time” - peyote-infused Fruit Beer.
that's the joke
I feel blessed and privileged to be @midmichmatt 's + 1.
Sounds good! I'm bringing some BA stout homebrew as well. Sadly no cardamom variant. Maybe next year.
Ive attempted to meetup with people by setting a time and place, along with group cuts and messages.
Still is only successful about 1in 10 times at DLD.
This seems way harder.
I’m carefully putting together an amazing concoction. Whenever I open a last beer of the night when I’ve had too many and inevitably don’t finish it or forget that I left part of it in the fridge, I’m making a great cuvée out of it. It should be glorious.
Last beer? Last beer!?!?!?! There should be no such thing at DLD.
Duh, this fantastic concoction is before DLD, molded together as a gift to the Dark Lord himself (or herself?).
Is that better?
I'm so excited we are exactly a month away, to the minute, from being completely black out drunk.
So that means 45% chance of No Rain
0 to 100% chance is what I heard
Bring flip flops, shorts, t-shirts along with jeans, boots, rain coat and a winter coat just in case.
Sounds like a plan.
Best advice in this thread
Hmmm, never heard a metal cover of Blind Melon, so now I’m excited!
I am a self-professed hop head from Columbus, OH. I had heard nothing but good things about Russian River Pliny the Elder but never had it (I don't get to the bay area much). Last year, someone brought several bottles and gave me one during the night before bottle share. It is indeed good stuff.
This year, I am hoping someone brings Pliny the Younger and/or Supplication to either the night before bottle share or to the festival.
What beers have you heard of/read about/yearned for that you hope someone brings this year?
That would be impossible... Younger sees no bottles, cans, or growlers.
But, Supplication is easy to get and excellent.
You're going to have to put PhillyTapFinder on your watchlist around next late Februrary/early March, or else travel to Cali during that time. Once a year release, draft only.
I will say, if you've had Hop Juju, you've had a better version of Younger. I don't mean to rag on it, it's a good beer, and it was way ahead of its time, but that time has come to pass now--there are a lot of beers out there that are very similar today, Hop Juju being the closest I've had. I had them side by side on draft in Philly this year actually, so it was a pretty easy comparison to make.
I'm just hoping to try/sample as many DL variants as possible, regardless of what they are. I'd take a pour of Dia Oscuro just to try it, even if it is disgusting.
Same. Last year I had Chemtrail, Dwarven Power Bottom, and Muerte. Other FFF pours included BA Behemoth and Gin Permanent Funeral.
I'm curious what their BA taps will be since they didnt release hardly any BA beers this past year. Maybe it means more DL variants on tap?
Man, have you had Super Juicy Hop Juju? That beer is insane
I have, and it certainly is an experience!
Impossible?! I mean, improbable. And perhaps impossible for this year. But if you tell me that it would be impossible for someone to show up to a share with a keg of PtY next year, I’d say that you, sir, lack imagination, a set of lock picks, and a getaway hovercraft.
Which group are you in? I have a Supplication I'd bring to share with you.. I'm in E
@Buck89 see i know what i'm doing here, rest assured..
Don’t agree at all. Younger is still a masterful work of art.
Never said otherwise...I agree, Younger is a standard, one that many excellent brewers can and do meet.
Vast majority of huge IPAs are garbage. So no, it’s not.
So...Younger is not a standard to which others can be held to or strive to attain in their craft?
Have they announced the DL BBQ sauce variants yet?
I am in group A so there is a pretty good chance we may not cross paths during the festival. I am staying at the Hampton down the road and that's the bottle share I plan on attending.
In Columbus, there is usually plenty of Hop JuJu on tap and in cans to be found and I agree, it is very good. One of my favorite IPA's actually. Regarding Pliny the Elder, there are many Ohio IPAs that definitely stack up well against it. Examples: CBC Bodhi, CBC Creeper, Fat Heads Headhunter.
I really do need to check my Untappd check-ins before requesting something. Case in point: it turns out that I've had Supplication before. And what a surprise, I had it during a previous DLD hotel bottle share.
It's not Supplication, but I plan on having Consecration with me, and I am group A. I think our group is planning to be there around 7:30. I'll be the guy with a beard, a brewery t-shirt and a black backpack.
Should be easy to spot
While I'm still formatting what I'm gonna bring, RR sours (Beat) and Elder will defiantly be in my backpack!
Those rebellious beers
Added point for easy identification...slightly bulging belly.
I thought Dia was delicious and better than some of the others last year. It's just a lot of people don't like that strong peaty flavor mixed with the sweet DL base. It tasted like a liquified smoky BBQ chip to me. I really liked it. Definitely one of the most unique flavors I've had out of a beer.
I've heard from a very reliable source that group D and E will be able to pick the spice they want to add to their dark lord...cardamom, pink peppercorns, Himalayan salt.....I would go with dill and lemon pepper
