    I’ve been going since 2011 so I should be considered local at this point right? I’m definitely down with hanging and sharing.

    I’m packing all the stouts/bigger porters I can’t drink regularly anymore because hazy IPAs have ruined me.

    Scotch BA No Rules
    Bourbon County reserve
    And then a bunch of haze to wipe the stout from my palette. Treehouse and More are the majority of my bag.

    No one really cares what I’m packing but I’m trying to do my part to get us to variant/map release territory.

    • Transient: 2 year “vertical” of Buckley
    • CBS was mentioned - that sounds nice in the morning.
    • Trillium and Treehouse to mix it up.
    • Maybe Mexican Cake?
    Ok, you got me. I haven’t started thinking about it yet.

    I’ve always been fortunate enough to hold group A which meant showing up at 6am and getting housed by noon. After the changes last year, I didn’t care which group I got and snagged C for this year, and I’m not inclined to arrive before 11. I may make it past the second band this year, guys.

    Several different beers from Narrow Guage Brewing Company (King Fallen Flag, OJ Run, and whatever they put out between now and DLD)

  30. croush

    croush Crusader (770) Mar 20, 2015 Illinois

    So, my thoughts on beers I'll be bringing at this point are:

    Russian River Consecration
    FVM '17
    Some other big stout or two (options of Prairie Dawg beer, Pugachev's Cobra, BA Here Kitty Kitty, Yeah You Know Me, Rum BA Ten Fidy, Your Grandma on French Toast, PW BA stuff)
    Some hazy beers from Tree House, Tilted Barn and/or Other Half

    So, beyond the first two beers, I've figured out pretty much nothing. And even those first two could change.

    This is my wondering as well. I'm in Group A, and will be there early enough to share a couple bottles prior to opening. That will allow me to bring more than the limit, knowing that some will be drank before entering. But, I'm debating whether to exceed the limit by a bit under the impression they won't take it TOO seriously. I also don't want to even bother with the risk of having to get rid of some bottles/cans to get in (or I suppose pounding a beer to get in...which would probably not be a good omen for the rest of my day). Plus, I want to try more taps, so perhaps sticking to the limit is in my best interest.
