Did anyone actually ever decide if we are pro or against the dragon abortions??
Dragons scare me. I would prefer they abort.
We made it!!!! 200!!!!
All this talk of abortion is making me thirsty.
I did learn my lesson to never ever walk away and trust anyone with your DL. I put my beer on the picnic table we were sharing at. I said please watch my beer, I want to check the guest taps. Guard it with your life. I come back to the picnic table like 5 mins later and everyone is walking away from the table. I asked my friend where my DL bag was and she said, I don't know. I freaked out for about 5 mins until one person says, oh I think Anthony snagged it. I called him and he in fact split off from the group and grabbed my DL. I think they were messing with me but they were drunk, so I don't know. I WILL NEVER DO THAT AGAIN!
I recommend 2017 darklord, it quenched my thirst nicely today.... although I now have the hiccups. I blame my buddies hb.
That Pizza Port collab was one of the highlights of the day. Totally flew under the radar.
I regret not standing in line for BA Vanilla Moloko. Oh well. Line was pretty long at that point.
I'll be hosting a bottle share In Columbus, OH this summer to help raise funds for my Pelotonia.org bike ride (all proceeds go to cancer research). During the night, if I reach certain fundraising goals, I'll open a different variant to share.
Yes! @prg Dragon Abortion homebrew was awesome! The bourbon was so nice and mellow against the thinner malt backbone! I was the Canadian guy pouring CDN beers and talking homebrew with you both mid-afternoon just outside the tent. Cheers!
I use it primarily s a check list, i try to rate but only when I am sober enough and usually stick just half star increments because then its more like an out 10 scale. I am trying to get better about leaving notes mostly for myself if I encounter a beer again. Sometimes its as simple as "stay away" or "just order it"
It was nice to meet you. Hope you travels home went well! Cheers!
Had a friend text me from 3F that they had Muerte on tonight. He ordered a DL2017 first (why???) and the Muerte kicked before he got to try it. I was halfway out the door to go have one with him.... Might just swing by tomorrow after work and see if Chemtrail or one of the vanillas shows up.
Yeah I try to always put the location I bought/drank the beer at when I check in, figuring it'll help out anyone else looking for any specific thing.
My experience has been that a variant share is difficult.
It's like doing a bruery share. The beers are so sweet, you're better off drinking one, or maybe 2, and then setting it up to do the same again.
You sir have a good point!
That being said I'd love to set up a series of shares in the Twin Cities one maybe two variants per share.........
As the wife and I were walking out of the allotment pick-up I noticed the guy in front of me strolling along and holding on to the tote with one hand as it was swinging a bit. I promptly told him to be careful and to carry the tote with at least one hand underneath it. He kinda looked at me like it's no big deal. I held my tote up in front of him, tugged on the strap just a bit, and sure as sh*t it made a slight tearing sound. He promptly proceeded to cradle his tote like a newborn.
Welcome to page 200 I figured of all people you would have been waiting for this.
What were the best beers everyone got on tap? I was lucky to find 2014 Dark Lord and BA Behemoth.
It was never a goal of mine to hit 200, but it is pretty darn cool that we did. I was just hoping to see the thread do a little better than last year's. It's obviously gone far past that.
I must say...DLD MMXVII...thank you. FFF (3F) may have went about changing things the wrong way but in the end the decisions they made worked out for the best. Any complaint I may have had was miniscule in comparison to how massive and well run DLD was this year. The weather was great, the food was great, the lines were small and moved fast (except for Dark Matter...but that's on them), and the people as a whole were very cool to one another.
And for this thread...
This thread started back in October, nearly eight months ago. Eight months of speculation, senseless arguments, unfounded rumors, epic trolling, small bits of useful information, everchanging weather forecasts, and a massive amount of jibberish and tomfoolery. This thread has been a blast and has become an epic sh*tshow in and of itself.
We can bring our ChemTrailMix and another Muerte.
Great Event, Nice job 3Floyds - Can't wait for next year! (page 200, whooo hooo!!!!! )
Holy shit, October?! It's been that long?!
Hopefully no surprise announcements for next year so we'll be able to get a little rest before the next thread pops up, lmfao!
Anyway, agree with the rest of your sentiment, cheers all, it's been a blast!
BA Moloko, Rue D Floyd, Zombie vs Unicorn
Just booked Hampton Inn Schererville for the last weekend in April and the first 2 weekends in May 2018. I would assume the festival will be one of those.
I snagged Ronaldo 2017 and Zombie vs Unicorn at the beginning of the day.
200 wow..... Incredible.
Muerte, Biggesworth, Power Bottom, '17 Dark Lord, Zombie vs Unicorn, Rue D' Floyd, Mocha Wednesday.....
It was fun to try some variants on tap but if I remember I enjoyed Rue the best might just have been the fact it was earlier in the day though.
wear your Dragon Abortion shirt...bring some Monkish at the share too while you're at it LOL. Look for the guy with the R on his shirt, I owe you a pour of something for your Monkish pour, I was empty handed when I met you.
I tend to go all-out on taps.... So I'm pretty sure I either got a pour or a sample of most variants tapped.
Full Pour Taps:
Dwarven Power Bottom
2015 Earl of Biggleswade
2017 Regular Dark Lord
Willet BA Behemoth
Sample Pours From Friends:
15 Bourbon Dark Lord
2011 Regular Dark Lord
Shocked you are alive.
Speaking of taps - how do you do them? I got the DL17 and Oil of Gladness. But then I didn't see anything exciting. Is there a particular tent to stand by?
...i never had fewer than two full cups, so it seemed challenging to say no to people pouring me beer for long enough to figure out what the hell was going on.
we just stood by the stage one and kind of watched for lines at the other station across. Ran across if we saw a line. We got Muerte and Earl just standing there. No real rush.
He was alive when I met him...for the most part
I agree with your Rue assessment. Really surprised me how much I liked it. Glad I grabbed a bottle of it too a week earlier which I'll open at some point.
As for other taps, I only had BA Behemoth (Old Forester), Huna 17 and DL 17. All were good though and was happy to have them all.
Yeah, there is really something bizzare with the fact Rue has been available to go, limit 4, for over two months. Maybe it's the $30 price point... Wonder if they made so much it squeezed out space for enough DL variants..
For me, the $30 was the reason I didn't pick up 4 when I was there. I also picked one up primarily based on positive reviews I've read on Beer Advocate, otherwise I'm not even sure I would have picked up even one. I grabbed it back a few years ago when it was infected and it left a sour taste in my mouth (pun intended).
Derivation was the best beer I had all day. I grabbed 3 cups worth when I ordered.
The guest draft near the share tent were a joke.
I take it this was at the guest taps near the stage?
