    I remember having Rufus, Stone SSR with Espresso, and Older Viscosity....so i think that pic was from early afternoon...like somewhere between 1-3. I remember having Hill Farmstead Everett on tap earlier in the day. And Sun King Pappy van Muckle.

    I had never doubted my ability to get on the Reggie's shuttle (and have never done it). Is it actually difficult to get a spot on it?

    Is anyone doing the secret bottle BIF where you wrap a quality bottle in a bag or something and exchange it for the previously submitted bottle?

    There was a whole row of guest taps last year. I remember around 5pm or so I had some BB double IPA. No idea who it was from but it was great (not Doom). By that point there weren't many lines or anything. Just a whole row of taps for my choosing. There were also 2-3 FFF draft stations where I had BA Ice Grille, Dark Lord, and Sobro all on draft.

    Nothing against Reggie's, but one of the reasons for organizing my own bus was to avoid the potential for breaking down on the side of the road. (Didn't this happen a few years back?) The Reggie's shuttle has seen better days...

    They won't announce this until the morning of....also, they'll reveal the variants also.

    I just cancelled two rooms at the Courtyard in Hammond for DLD night, 4/26. Good luck to the first one who can call up and get 'em.

    I had this too I think, it was a PVW DIPA from Flat 12, Sun King, or a Kentucky or Tennessee brewery. Can't remember at this moment, looked it up and found it after DLD, but couldn't find it just now after a quick search on BA. I do remember having BA Hell's Black Intelligencer on tap at the guest taps row which I thought was odd since the BA FFF beers were coming from the stations just in front of the brewery. If I were going this year, I would just hang by the guest taps and the large bottle sharing area under the tent adjacent to the guest taps.(Assuming a similar layout as last year)

    Watch. Two weeks from now, people will be bitching because they heard there would be Ouzo and Grappa variants and FFF doesn't have them.

    Stop it. We all know that BADL wick Pears is the only confirmed variant that matters.

    If google searches would show trends, I'm sure for a brief period there, 'ouzo' and 'grappa' were a quick spike. kutgw

    It's being held, the details are at another board. If you're at all familiar with the Darkness Day blind bottle BIF, same host.

    Also, in the Midwest, you never believe anything anyone has predicted weather wise until the day of. Anything at least two days out is most likely bullshit.

    If any one opens their crowdsurge envelope and finds an extra ticket with the name "Aaron Campbell" please send me a BM. CrowdSurge mailed us only 1 ticket instead of the 2 that we were charged for.
    Their customer support asked if the envelope looked tampered with, which it did not. They then proceeded to tell us,'We printed them all, who knows what happened to it. We're not sending you a replacement.'

    Email FFF.

    Last year there were several people I knew that didn't even receive theirs. They emailed FFF and got put on a will call list. It was very easy to get a band at that tent last year. Just ask the workers when you arrive about the will call (or do what FFF says in the email).

    EDIT: I can assure you this is not bullshit as stated below. They may not be doing will call this year, but they DEFINITELY did last year for people that did not receive tickets. I'm sure others can confirm.

    It is definitely BS. And we ALLLLLL KNOW exactly what is going to happen: Crowdsurge will send a cookie-cutter reply to us the day before the event and say, "We are sorry, but we couldn't resolve the lost ticket. We have credited your account with $37.89. We hope this hasn't caused any inconvenience, such as booking hotel rooms or taking off work. Again, congrats on receiving part of your order, have fun going by yourself, and better luck next year. - Cheers".
    lol.
    Who do you reccomend that I email? Holly? I'll shoot her an email and get her input. Thanks guys!

    You can try info@runningwatersgroup.com

    That's the FAQ email on the dark lord page. They'll email you back within a few hours. You may or may not get an awesome answer.

    It is true that your tickets are lost or stolen that FFF and the event coordinators have a procedure set up to help you. USPS lost my tickets so they naturally claimed that they were delivered and such. I contacted amy@runningwatersgroup.com and she helped me out. You will not be reissued tickets via the mail but they make it possible to enter the event and deactivate the tickets that are missing so that no one can use them.
