    We went last year for the first time and are hoping to go again this year. I'm really hoping to be able to get another ticket so I can bring one of my best man as his groomsman gift. The fiance and I had a blast last year despite the idiots running the lines. "This isn't where group C will start, they will start over there." "This isn't where group C..." Aside from that, great festival.

    When can we expect the people who know a brewer/cook/server/salesman/frequenting hobo at three floyds to give us the inside gossip?

    There will be beer, there will be crowds, there will be a few unfortunate incidents, the weather could be great, the weather could be bad, some lines will be worse than others, there will be people offering up quick cash for your Dark Lord variants, some people's bottles will be stolen, there will be music, there will be food, there will be those who enjoy the party inside the gates, there will be those who enjoy the party outside the gates, there will be whalez bro pouring all around the event, there will be bros and non-bros in attendance, there will be neck beards, there will be people who drank far too much, there will be people not drinking enough, there will be great people all around offering up pours of whatever they have in their hand (bring a glass and a smile and make friends), there will be tickets available leading right up to the event at cost (don't pay more than that if you can't snag a ticket right away), and finally, there will be time to pontificate all the great things that is Dark Lord Day in the many weeks to come, let's not over-think things here.

    It will be great, it will be bad, it will be organized, it will be disorganized, it doesn't matter. It's the best.

    No ticket system this year. Air guitar contests will determine who is allowed to buy dark lord.

    Not metal enough.

    Must burn two religious artifacts for admission and one additional for each bottle of Dark Lord you want to buy. Barrel-aged Dark Lords will require confirmed proof of at least one burned Norwegian church.

    Religious artifacts must be of walezbro class or above. We're talking pieces of the original cross here, not grandma's St. Peter icon :wink:

    One of the servers told me that this years batch got infected so they made a barrel aged cider instead.

    Do they change the theme on the page every year? I know last year featured the new Dark Lord label art but didn't pay attention to previous years. Am I reading too much into this as potential label art for this year?

    No, you are not over-thinking it, I think the DLD site has always used the label art (which was always pretty much the same until last year). So this could be new label art.

    Nice, love Three Floyds labels and would really like to see what they come up with if they start changing it every year.

    As a white man brainwashed by the mainstream media, I am deeply offended by the depiction of a Native American warrior on a beer label. I call for a boycott of Dark Lord Day this year.

    So the only hotel in munster is already full that whole weekend. Anyone know of any hotels in a few mile radius that would do shuttles to and from DLD?

    Don't think I've heard of any hotels doing shuttles in years past but contrary to popular belief, it is pretty easy to get a cab to/from DLD.

    The Munster Hampton did a shuttle last year. I thought other nearby hotels like the Hampton in Schererville did too, but I can't be sure about that.

    The Hampton in Munster is already booked full (that is until all of the dumbasses that booked a room for DLD don't actually get tix and are forced to give up their rooms).

    There are a couple of new hotels in the area that may offer a shuttle if enough people request.

    If you don't mind a 20 min can ride, Tinley Park is right down I-80. Tons of hotels at the exit. Probably a safe bet if you are having a hard time
