    I was thinking "Death Cab for Cutie" to keep up the 'heavy metal rocker' appearance - until they come out, everyone is ready to headbang and they just jump right into some real melancholy shit....that'd be awesome!

    Now that we've been discussing the bottle shares, guest taps and food, that makes me think of what happens to all that...how are the facilities at DLD? I'm assuming standard port-a-potties - do these get pretty nasty once the afternoon rolls around?

    They are about as good as you would expect for a beer festival full of 2000 drunk people drinking heavy stouts and sours all day.

    The randomness of the taps is awesome. It prevents excessive lines. The beers are all excellent and once in a while you'll find something you can brag to your friends about.

    Last year around 4:00 pm one HC port-o-potty (or maybe the only HC one) was experiencing 100% liquid displacement when I used it. For every fl. oz. that left me, a fl. oz. spilled right out onto the floor. I should have known from the trail of pretty blue "water" that was seeping out of the port-o-potty into one of the many puddles. That image haunts my dreams. Moral of the story; Bring footwear that you don't care about.

    No bottles sold this year besides the 4 2016 DLs and the variant right? Hadn't seen that confirmed in this yet, but I figured I'd ask since the site made it like that, however, I always thought FFF loved being able to sell previous year's DLs at these for those who somehow miss a year or two.

    Yes, they stopped doing that last year so it will most likely be the same this year.

    Last year, they sold DL 2014 at the kiosk a couple of days before DLD and I think after as well. I know it was on two separate occasions because I stopped bye twice for my 2 DL '14s that I got.

    As others have said, last year no bottles. 2 years ago, vintage DL and most regulars. My backpack was so heavy.

    this year i'd expect no sales day of.

    In addition to the day of being bits of snow and rain, it also forecasts daily rain for the entire week before the event. Looks like the giant puddle from last year will live on.

    Yeah but as soon as you walk a mile back to the car and drop it all off you feel like a champ. I'm fine without the bottle sales though because I spent way too much during that. I believe that was the same year you could buy Tekus, however only as six packs

    DAMN IT! I've been looking and hoping for FFF Tekus for a long time. I would've bought a six pack without a blink.

    This may sound stupid but I hope they have Pride & Joy as one of the taps. I enjoy Yum Yum but do miss this brew. It always excelled as a consolation 6 pack when Zombie was out.

    It would be a welcome sessionable alternative to all the imperial stouts we'll be guzzling.

    Even better than random chance, or dreaming, just have a Group A ticket!

    True true, maybe it was the uncertainty that is coming from me having a Group B ticket. Another tid bit of my dream was that the bottle was in the shape of one of those giant Chianti wine bottles... SPECULATION!

    In all seriousness, I'm more excited about bottle shares in line, standing around and the draft list

    I'm going to post a running list of the forecast for 4/30. Moral of the story will be, any forecast more than 3 days out is bullsh*t.

    On 3-17 it said its going to be 66 and sunny
    On 3-23 it said it's going to be 57 with a bit of rain and snow.

    Shit, I just spent 30 bucks for two of Hoof Hearted fart Tekus. 50 for 6 i'd break two out right there on the spot and drink from them not worrying about breaking them.

    If it snows at 57 degrees, that'll be a first for me. Not sure if I should hate or love the thought of it.

    Fart tekus.

    Fart.

    Tekus.

    Anyway, love Hoof. Especially now that they've given me an excuse to say "fart tekus" in a sentence.

    57 is the high, but 37 is also the low. I'm not agreeing with the physics, just relaying the forecast.

    Regardless of the weather, we will all be there and some will find a way to bitch about it. Take it in stride, I've been there when I got a sunburn and had to wear rain gear.

    Who cares...
