    Definite lineup coming tomorrow. Plus whatever 12 ozs bottle I can squeeze into my cooler backpack. Hopefully some 14 BCBS & Rye Hipsters. Looking forward to the greatest bottle share once again!

    More people need to understand this. The beauty of dld is that most people don't give a shit what you have to pour, many don't even want another pour, they just want to share good ass shit with a lot of people

    I certainly get that I was more or less just complimenting him on what he is bringing. Im perfectly happy with what I'm bringing and perfectly happy to share with anyone that wants a pour as are most others.

    I think that goes with what he is saying. In other bottle share contexts, it does seem to be "well I'll share bottle x if others bring bottles in what I consider the same tier otherwise I'll keep bottle x at home". This is complete BS imo. DLD sharing has none of this BS for the most part. Share and enjoy. Enjoy and share.

    You've got me all wrong I'll share any beer with you without anything in return and I'm saying that's most people's mind set to just drink good beer with good people.

    Yes. Definitely, I can say yes. I met a guy tonight who works at the printing place on the corner of Indiana and Superior, and he told me for sure that their lot is not part of the footprint this year.

    Staying at the Comfort Suites in Lansing. Just got done sharing a bunch of bottles with a bunch of guys I've never met. No talk about work, no talk about bullshit, we only talked about beer. I love DLD and can't wait for tomorrow. Cheers all.

    Look fwd to meeting some fellow BAs at high noon. I'll be wearing a blue Bottle Logic FO t shirt and my god.........shorts.

    The quest to 200 continues. Who's In? Instead of sleeping like a sensible person we stayed up, watched Adventures in Babysitting and some awful sitcoms.

    Why? Cause that's how we roll! (Growlers/cocktails may have been involved)

    P.S. If I die tomorrow due to lack of sleep or total liver failure, I bequeath my bottle collection to my buddy Mat on the condition that he funnel a Black Ops at room temp!!!

    Hey all,

    Stayed at the Fairfield in Hammond. One of the workers was here this morning. She's the one who did final inventory of variants. We were in a rush, but here's what she told me:

    1. Bags are completely random (we knew that).

    2. You walk up, they hand you a bag, you walk out. You won't have time to look or choose.

    3. ~20% chance to receive vintages, based on final inventory and tickets sold.

    I didn't have time to get a count of individual variants.

    Hope this helps. Happy drinking.

    - Brody

    Was packing the back pack, turned around to grab something else and heard that dreaded sound. Turned around to find my Werk Force beer had fallen out of the back pack as it leaned forward.
    You almost made it little buddy. RIP.

    For those that are already there, bring us an update every seven minutes until somebody passes out. And then bring one every 10 minutes.
