    Well shit, since someone is bringing a '12 Box of Chocolate I just threw an '11 in with my beer. Why not?

    I just opened my '11 a month or so ago and the base beer came out a ton over fresh. Pretty tasty.

    Ok so tons of beer right? Should we bring some food to this event or are we just throwing caution to the wind? I would love to make my tee time for some DLD the next morning. Screw it! I can stumble to the brewery, nevermind! Disregard my previous statement and pour me another!

    I'm bringing two big ass bag of pretzels to share. I would probably recommend eating beforehand though

    Thanks Shawn. He is referring to me. Looking for a ticket or two. Willing to trade bottles or mule. Maybe a handy ;). Although, I do owe Shawn one already.

    My wife said the 3 Hour Tour was the best beer she's ever had. Unfortunately they were out of growlers when we were there.

    You are only building my anticipation of this weekend. It is now at a level that one would consider danger for my heart...

    ... Just had about 5 "samples" of flossmoor's pre-dark lord party beers. Headed to Eduardo's now for a bite to eat. Then the Hampton ... Such a good start to the weekend

    How late will y'all be going? The boyfriend and i are waiting on our food at 3 Floyds (probably a bad idea) just wondering if y'all will still be going in a couple hours.

    Hey guys. I left my tan trench coat in the room. If someone could grab it that would be great. Its tan. The tag says Bill Blass. It was on a chair close to the table facing the wall that was facing the parking lot.
    Please BM me. I will be at dark lord.

    And that picture doesn't even do it justice! Best beer tasting I've ever seen or heard of. This doesn't show the 09-11 black Tuesday vert or the chocolate rain. Thank you everybody for being incredible!

    Wow, that was an awesome bottle share. Beatification, Chocolate Rain, 3 year vertical of Black Tuesday...

    This shows less than half of the bottles...

    I just wanna say thank you to everyone at the hotel! It was rad meeting a lot of you and giving away my pretzels. By far the most balls-to-the-wall tasting I have ever witnessed/been apart of.

    Black Tuesday vertical, Darkness vertical, CBS, Mexican Cake, Chocolate Rain.... So much more great beer, it was ridiculous. Behemoth on tap was pretty epic.

    Driving back to Ohio right now, I'll post videos soon.

    Oh I wanted to know: who was the monster that brought Ghost Scorpion? That ruined my palate for at least 15 minutes! Haha
