Any idea who gets these VIP passes?
Friends of the brewery.
page 2 of the map
Same PDF as the map on page 2. It loads screwy on computers but comes up fine on the iPhone.
Ah I see. Yeah didn't load immediately on the PC for some reason. I was hoping for a beer menu. Taps or the BADL list would be nice to see.
For bottle shares Friday evening at Hampton Inn & Suites Munster, Saturday in line before DLD, and at DLD.
Because sharing is caring.
Trading also possible.
I'm pretty sure it's for investors and industry friends.
Investors have their own area, but I think they likely get VIP also.
Patience ....at least that is what I'm telling myself!
What time do the folks staying at the Hampton Schererville want to meet up for a share on Friday night?
Interesting tidbit from the email I just received regarding instructions for DLD.
"Additionally, while Dark Lord Day is an event designed to allow guests to share craft beer, we reserve the right to limit quantities and types of beer brought into the festival."
I wonder how they will make determinations on what beer is "worthy" enough to make it through the gates.
I read that to mean no Bud, Miller, Coors, Natty, etc. And even if it is good beer, don't come hauling backpack after backpack of it. They know people will get sloshed enough as it is. No need to make it more of shitshow than it already will be.
They generalized the answer in the FAQs:
"We allow people to bring limited amounts of beer for trading and sampling with other beer lovers. The idea is to celebrate craft beer, so we ask that you only bring in beers that are unique – ones that can’t be found just anywhere. Please no beers that can be found at any corner market."
Yught. We even got some in the City proper. North Ave Beach had some dusting left when I cycled passed at 715am today.
Frost warning tonight too!
Really want to try that Chevalier
It's fantastic. I picked up five bottles at the time, down to three at this point.
Breakfast tacos with DL hot sauce? Better get in line now.
It would be nice if you didn't have to use a mirror to read the festival map and menu, so metal I guess.
PROHIBITED ITEMS & ACTIVITIES
Backpacks, bags or purses larger than 10”x10”x16”
Not metal. Devolution.
Isn't almost every standard backpack bigger than that? Mine certainly is.
My soft side over the shoulder cooler is 10x12x18. Here's hoping they don't have tape measures at the gate ...
Oh, good to see I might be getting into a fight before the day even really begins.
Dark Lord Day website still says this:
ARE BACKPACKS PERMITTED?
Backpacks are permitted at Dark Lord Day.
No mentions of size limitations.
You guys will be fine. My soft cooler I just purchased is slightly larger than that as well. They've got to put this stuff in writing; people push limits and it's better to "say" you've a limit than let the mass's imaginations run wild! There won't be tape measures, don't fret.
*I write this as a virgin of this event. If I'm wrong...well, I won't be!
On the darklord site they say backpacks are permitted
I was there today to pick up last years DL. What I will call the bullpen (metal bike racks forming lines) was set up at the SW corner of Superior and Indiana Parkway. Ground was new gravel. I think they have more portable toilets set up than Wrigley.
You guys trippin' over Backpacks? I'm still trying to figure out what to wear...
You guys are getting into your own heads on this one.
You'd need a child's lunchbox to be able to follow those measurements. I'm guessing everyone will be fine unless they try to bring in a damn suitcase.
what about a rolling cart cooler?that to big
ill be at the super 8 saturday night with some side project and other st louis stuff
Anything besides ba palo santo either rumored or confirmed for the guest tap list?
I will be there.
If anyone is ISO this year's DL due to GA tickets, shoot me a PM and I may be able to hook you up. Our group has a total allotment of 8 bottles and I think only 2 are currently going to be bought.
You may want to dress like the Gortons fisherman. Forecast is a high of 49 and they are calling for an inch of rain Saturday.
Sun King: Tin Star, Afternoon Delight, BA Timmie, Tequila BA Fistful of Hops
This has the potential to be the worst DLD weather ever. Mid-40s, 19mph steady winds, gusts of 30, rainfall 1/2-3/4 of an inch. I get enough of this bullshit on the long trail in VT, might be an early afternoon exit for me.
Also, how am I supposed to get the full flavor profile of all these world class beers if they get watered down by all the rain?!
It looked like mostly gravel and pavement. Tons of port-o-poties, barricades and tents. It was kind of a cluster with the construction going on and hard to tell what the lay of the land would be. There's definitely port-o-poties set up at both the North and South entrances like last year.
I wouldn't say that. The two cases of ZD I bought yesterday were bottled 4/15/15. I assume they are stock piling a lot of last weeks bottles/cases on top of what they plan on bottling this week just to have xtra for everyone coming into town this week.
That means no Spotted Cow. Leave that shit in Wisconsin.
