    Why doesn't Three Floyds hold Dark Lord Day on Memorial Day weekend? The weather at the end of April always, mostly anyways, sucks.

    Yes, rain and mud is metal. I was at the pub yesterday and much more of the area for the festival is paved this year. The entire main stage/guest tap/bottle share tent is now a paved parking lot. That will be nice.

    I don't feel so bad about missing out on tickets now. Good luck to all of you braving the cold rain today.

    I know it's late but my buddy just bailed on me. Message me if you're looking for a group sales ticket. Since it's group sales and my name is on both tickets, you'll have to stand inline with me. Lucky...

    If this many seems like a lie, it's not. That is a direct quote from their Twitter. Now on to more pressing matters. Which to choose if you win

    On the first Reggie's bus to three Floyd's. Bottle sharing is not allowed. They are selling Zombie Dust, Yum Yum, GBH, and alpha king. You can smoke anything.

    As people enter, let us know if they are being really strict with back packs and how they are measuring them if at all.

    Dark matter line was much more organized this year with line fences. Got all I wanted but I was in that line within the first 100. People walking off with full cases of goblets and steins, not going to be good for late comers but fuck it.

    Scored some Vanilla Bean although it was a tough choice between that or the 2 year Brandy Barrel version. Will post a pic later.

    Home from the event to prep for evening plans.

    Rain alternately sucked and was fine. Forced people in line to be more social under tents.

    Got in the glasswhalezbro line that I said I wouldn't go in because I was one of the first through the gates. Got my pimp cup while a friend got hot sauce for us. Guess you could buy multiple hot sauces? Don't know if there was a limit.

    Group A line went fast once the doors opened. No variant wins, so $50 not spent.

    Checked coffee merch/hot sauce lines after I got out of group sales. Coffee line filled the cattle gates, went west back towards the the pub, and then wrapped around north towards the entrance gates. If I hadn't gone early, that'd be a lol nope situation. Hot sauce line filled all the cattle gates by the food tents. Glad the smoked meat guys were yelling that you didn't need to wait in the hot sauce line to buy their stuff, otherwise I'd still be waiting to get brisket.

    Tents were very, very crowded, as expected. Guest tap lines were very short. Sad to miss most of the day, but kinda glad I'm sitting this year out for the most part.

    Here's to DLD: Under the Dome 2016

    The boxes for the vanilla bean variant said vanilla bean marshmallow on them. Also the bottle says barrel-aged with vanilla beans on one side and marshmallow on the other side.
