    I sent an email to Three Floyds asking if they knew what the bottles were going to be priced. And I got this answer:
    It will be posted when available.
    WOW what an insightful answer.

    Last year, pricing and allotments weren't posted until, what, the day before?

    Why would anyone expect differently this year?

    having bad customer service is metal. But seriously, they are getting slammed by folks bothering them with dark lord day questions, gotta cut em some slack.

    honestly what did you want them to say? If they don't know yet they don't know. If they do know doesn't it make more sense to release the answer once, as opposed to answering 6,000 independent emails?

    I'm the opposite of metal and generally laid back, but if worked at a retailer or a brewery i'd want punch half of you in the throat.

    Hope they at least have some Port-o-lets near the beginning of the DL line.

    Too many group C'ers were just pissing right along the chain link fence at the back end of the property.

    Could it be possible that they actually have upped theproduction even if just slightly? I have been frequenting the brewery 2-6 times per month for the last 4 years and I can say they have been very light on a lot of beers the past several months. Case in point would be their seasonals have been over a month behind consistently for the last few months. I personally have not seen them that far behind before.

    Now I have read the New Dark Lord Day thread, the Old Dark Lord Day thread, the Nearly Most Definitive Dark Lord Day thread, the Mostest Best Definitivest Dark Lord thread and all the others that were just full of speculation and no one seems to be addressing whats important. Why has the official post DLD strip club not been discussed? Why is no one including that into their budget? It's funny some of you would be bashful about your favorite part of DLD now.

    I'm kinda on the fence, am I going or not? I need all the information to make a decision.

    For those that do not think it wil be in the park this year, or park and pub.
    Don't be so confident.

    The park is for real this year!

    No one mentioned this at the top of the ticket page so you might be right.

    All event information is subject to change. Please check back before date of event.

    They will enforce the "must show id with ticket" policy right up to the point on sunday at 12:07 p.m. when all of the tickets sell out, at which point that will be cast by the wayside along with all the would be eBay ticket scalping d-bags.

    Seems like they are responding to a lot of questions coming their way about how the whole ticket process works and added a lot more descriptive information about the process the day of the festival. Updated information from http://darklordday.com/golden-tickets/:

    A ticket is required to attend the festival and it is the only way to ensure that you get the opportunity to purchase Dark Lord Imperial Stout. Changes have to be made to ensure the longevity of the festival, safety and shorter lines. Without the ticket, there will be no admission to the premises. The name of the person to whom the tickets are being shipped will be printed on the ticket. When you arrive at the festival you will be required to present your ID. Security will confirm that the purchaser name and ID match as the reselling of these tickets is prohibited. No admission will be granted without the original purchaser being present to validate their ticket with their valid state or federal ID or valid passport. Then they may enter the event with his/her guest. The name of the person whom the tickets are being sent to will be the name that is printed on the ticket.

    One person is admitted per ticket. One allotment per person. One Golden ticket per Music Today ticket holder. The “guest” reference denotes the fact that tickets (if 2 are ordered) will both be printed with the name associated with the shipping address. Therefore, the person with their name printed on the ticket(s) will need to be present to validate both tickets then they and their ‘guest’ will be admitted.

    This is NOT a 2 for 1 scenario.

    I got in line before 5 once everyone started lining up for c. Then we were standing in line for 2 hours not moving an inch. A huge group of people had started to cut in at the front. Luckily all the people around me, including myself, won BA dark lord. In the end it was all worth it.

    They also changed everything to say "central time" and dropped the "standard" altogether.

    Looks like someone hired a copy editor.

    I posted this in the other thread. Originally, that link had the DLD lineup listed as: High on Fire, Pig Destroyer, Municipal Waste, Lair of the Minotaur. Then it got edited to "Surprise Guests".

    This is a weird question, but last year I got hosed by broken images on the Music Today site. When I tried refreshing at the right time last year, everything reloaded but I couldn't tell which link was the "Buy your ticket" link because of broken images. Does anyone remember whereabouts on the page that link pops up in case I get broken images again this year?

    Shift + F5, pulls a fresh page, not from cache ;) Chrome is still the fastest browser, unless you are using Win 8, then its firefox by a hair.

    If asking the question pays off, I'm good to go. If it doesn't, I'm in the same position I was without asking it. I agree it would be odd, but not impossible.

    i thought that command worked on everything but chrome. i remember in the past using it for woot offs and it wasn't so successful.

    I have a Win 8 machine for work and immediately installed chrome. works fast. didn't think to try firefox.

    when i went to dark lord last year, i had fun. i was part of the group C line but didn't see the BROS. i saw people pissing on the side though. i also won twice, scratch-offs, because my mul girlfriend came with me.
