    That would necessitate a 50/50 blend with a bottle of nail polish remover :eek:

    Actually, at about 2:00 in the afternoon, Listerene would probably make for a nice "palate bath" for most people...

    I've got two strikes but I'm not out. Conventional rules dictate I have another swing at the ball, but then again we might be playing by 3 Floyd's rules. My calendar shows two more Sundays until DLD, marking my Saturdays to remind me to take it easy.

    Thanks.

    I can't make it until Group D or E. Wondering if I should head down to get a group A and hope that I'll be able to get my allocation later on the event day.

    Yeah, you can do that. the reason for the groups is to break down the lines and making it organized. Worst that can happen is you piss people off in group D or E since you're adding to the line (kidding). if you can ONLY buy group A ticket and only arrive up until at least group D. Buy the ticket. you'll be fine.

    If I would've known they'd keep releasing them I would have held off from online sales and made the trip just so I could have A slot.

    Those cases cost $29.06 in Indiana. They need to up their prices. Perhaps that fool isn't doing HIS job.

    Same here. I wouldn't of traded for a guest E ticket if I knew they were going to release so many at the brewery. It looks like they may have with held too many for locals.. As last Sunday they had tickets on sale for like 3-4hrs and most likely stopped sales instead of ran out.


    O well

    It would be interesting next year if they did a local sale before online tickets and one or two after.

    I still want them to just put codes to buy tickets on the bottoms of bottle caps or back of labels of their beer though :)

    Well unfortunately my girlfriend just got diagnosed with Celiac's. Great timing, right? I still want her to enjoy the festivities so we'll need some gluten free options! If you have any decent local gluten-free stuff that you could bring, I'd be happy to pay you face or trade for it...shoot me a message.

    I know Lakefront out of WI makes a gluten free beer that gets distributed here in the Chicago market. There's a decent amount of other gluten free brews here as well but I couldn't tell you who makes them or what they are. I don't drink them so I never pay attention but there are some options.

    They must be producing way more Dark Lord than years past if they're able to keep staggering tickets like this.

    I also wonder how diligent they're going to be if someone who already had Group A went back for another.
     
  38. stxSS07

    stxSS07 Nov 23, 2010 Illinois

    I don't think they sold any group A tickets online. 1200 tickets would presumably take a little while to go through with the IP and non-transferable factors considered.

    I wouldn't hate it if they DID end up making more DL though.

    Be pretty risky. Since A was the only group NOT sold in pairs, they more than likely won't allow those with the handwritten A tickets to be used as "Plus 1s". I'm sure many have already done it but you risk losing 30 bucks, which could come in handy for some pours of BA DL here in a couple weeks.
