First post on the topic....Right?
Guys? Are you going? Guys?
Kinda late for this thread to start, I mean its already 2015, less than 4 months to go. See you there.
My hope is to be there this year, yeah.
Does anyone know if bottle shares are gonna be allowed this year? I know they ran into issues with the police towards the end, and didn't know if that put a kibosh on the whole thing.
If i go, the goal is to not take my shirt off this year.
This will be my first year. Sounds like things get pretty weird
Heady Topper beer pong will do that.
I'm just impressed, because I don't think any amount of beer would've kept me warm in last year's chill.
But I'm willing to test that out, for science!
I would like to lose that game.
Heady Topper Beer Pong Will Knock Your Shirt Off. Sounds like a great name for a new Pipeworks' brew.
Of course there will be. It's the backbone of the entire day.
I can't wait for the riots that occur when the munster po-po shows up writing tickets and confiscating whalez.
Man I hope so...
Oh, absolutely. And there will be several clone threads that ask and answer the exact same questions over and over and over again. And most of us will follow every last one of them hoping that one of them will somehow give us an edge to scoring tickets to Dark Lord Day day.
Thanks for the reminder. I need to start working on my pretzel necklaces.
I still say the people watching at this thing rivals walking through the Las Vegas airport at about 6:00 p.m. on a Sunday night.
Official super confirmed variants this year are as follows:
Koval Gin BA
Infected Bourbon Dark Lord for full price
I think you flip it though. If you make a cup, the other team doesn't have to drink it, you GET to drink it! Incentive.
Already hitting f5 like a motherfuc&3r!
This is the worst thread I've ever seen.
Really dumb questions: do you have to purchase tickets before attending this event. Also can you just show up and then enter the raffle there to get one of the Dark Lord beers? If there isn't a raffle, how does it go for distributing the few Dark Lord bottles they do make? I want to finally attend DLD once to say I've done so, and since I was always minorly curious about this event. And with my brother and a few friends of his unfortunately not telling me they were going, I just wanna go and attend this, once and for all. Thanks.
Since you appear new I'll handle this before the dicks chime in.
1) tickets on sale online, typically around st pats day. There will be an additional extremely limited number sold at the brewery with little notice.
2) you need a ticket to enter the festival grounds.
3) there is lots of tailgating in the parking lots, I know people that hung out there all day without a actual tickets.
4) you need a ticket to purchase dark lord and receive the scratch off to win the opportunity to spend $50 on a ba dark lord.
* there was also a separate sale for ga tickets last year which you couldn't buy any 2014 dark lord bottles.
The overflowing piss houses were thrown in for free!!
Have never attended, but am on the fence about this year possibly instead of Hunahpu day.
Anyone go to both releases and prefer one to the other?
Mayhaps my memory is faulty, but wasn't the issue with trying to bring bottles in to the event itself, and not necessarily sharing outside the fenceline? The Munster Police have, from my viewpoint, been more than tolerant towards the attendees at the event.
And I've some stupid people acting stupidly at DLD, and probably being treated better than they deserved. I recall the last year before the Golden Tickets were issued (was that 2010?) when there was female wrestling occurring in the pond in front of the building next door (NTTAWWTOC!). And it devolved from there, as the day grew longer.
I think the particular issue with the excise folks was people leaving & then re-entering with alcohol. Not necessarily coming in the first instance with alcohol. I'm sure there will be plenty of advance notice if any policy changes from last year.
I believe you are correct. And, I believe, this only happened later in the day. There was absolutely no issue with bringing in anything when the gates opened in the morning.
Yeah, it was after 4 (i think)that the cops started cracking down, because i had left already. I'm glad the prevailing theory is that there will be no carry-over to this year, though.
ahhhh it's that time of year again. Last year was fun but I don't think I want to buy anymore DL, bottle sharing ahoy!! And hopefully not miss my damn bus.
I am considering making the trip out from Cali, but have a couple of questions. What do you guys recommend for lodging? Most of the places I mapped are about 5-7mi away from the brewery, but wondering if there is anything within walking distance. If I have to stay further away, what options do I have getting to and from the brewery? Is there a bus? Uber? Cab? Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated!
Pretty much only the Hampton Inn is within walking distance and that's a good mile so if you're humping beer that's no fun. There's a bus that comes from Chicago but nothing local that I'm aware of. You should plan on cabbing it. There will also be an epic bottle share the night before at the Hampton and maybe some other places as well.
Wonder what they will do this year as far as layout. With all the construction going on, the main area where the tents and band usually are is completely taken over by construction supplies and equipment for the project across the street.
I mean, it's not for almost 5 months dude. Plenty of time to change things around
I dunno man, what's more hardcore and metal than partying IN a construction site?
First thing i thought when i saw this thread...anyways, last year was my first time...i'll be making the trip up from Texas again this year!
My goal is to make sure Vav doesn't meet his 2015 DLD goal.
And plenty of time for construction projects to be finished.
Wear many shirts, so if you have the urge, you won't be half naked! If you remove all your shirts and become half naked, many will be glad it's the top half.
Go to the Hampton Inn for a monster beer tasting. We'll buy the pizza again.
I want to be there again this year.
Don't be this guy
