Those that work the system by using parents as mules must face the shame of receiving a Marshmallow Handjee from mom.
Sounds like they may have tried to pull a sting on you and you passed the test.
This is the best one yet, Grandmas Boy all the way
Well, Dark Lord is always pretty sweet, so all the variants are up there. That said, I don't remember a distinct difference in sweetness between the two. And it was a toss up in my group between Ronaldo and Handjee for which one was the better variant. So, take that for what its worth.
It's not like it's a drain pour, though I guess that's subjective. It's just really heavy on the cardamom.
I have two of them.
I'm going to cellar them for 5 years to a decade and hope the cardamom fades away.
I'm also open to trades anybody. Anybody?
For anyone interested, Open Bottle posted details on their DLD weekend on the FB. Also they have a shuttle which leaves @ 7am for the early birds. Direct link to the shuttle details.
I thought Temeculan was one of the better DLs at our share. It was not as sickeningly sweet as some of the others.
With how potent it was, I honestly can't imagine that ever happening...
I'm sorry, but without context this makes me laugh every time.
Ps - I have the sense of humor of a 10 year old
Can't bring myself to scroll through 44 pages of comments to find whether or not someone has started the DLD 2017 trading spreadsheet.
If it's been started, would someone be kind enough to repost it please?
I posted last year's trading spreadsheet. I'll post one tomorrow.
Depends..... what do you want for one??
Here's hoping there's ONE band that's not full on death metal, and maybe leans a little punk.
Having The Melvins play the 15th Anniversary Party was awesome.
As long as they have another tent with a DJ playing what they did last year, I'm a happy guy.
That was a blast. Especially for my group which isn't too into metal.
We were stuck in the metal tent unfortunately . It was awful, The DJ sounded great in the other tent, but it was way too crowded.
Fingers crossed for not needing to be under a tent this year.
The 90s rap tent was fantastic.
Beer Temple shuttle details.
What type of music was it? We were stuck in the metal tent and too drunk to realize there was another...
I remember lots of '90's hip-hop, which is pretty much bound to make me happy anywhere. Of course, I ended up pretty hammered, so maybe it was just one song by A Tribe Called Quest that made me happy and I latched onto that.
I camped out at the 90's hip hop tent the entire time. Great music, endless pours of great beer. Didn't need much more. Got pretty damn hammered and luckily remembered some how to get my ass in line to get my DLs and then I got lost trying to find my way back to that tent! It was a blast and can't wait to do it all again.
They should try and get Tribe to play...they will be out for Pitchfork...
Three Floyds would be my favorite brewery ever if they would re-brand to be 98% less metal (I wanted to say 120% but I think that would have offended many of our fellow consumers).
Anyone asking for any music other than heavy metal/metalcore is going to the wrong beer festival !!!
Personally I'm hoping for some Norwegian black metal to round out the Goatwhore and Amon Amarth combo.
Like I said, they had The Melvins headline the 15th anniversary party, and it was fucking awesome.
No one's gotten a Handjee in cargo shorts since Nam.

Remember bottles of spicy, sweet Dark Lord Hot Sauce will make you a household name at BBQs and on the TSA no fly-list.
How long does it take to get inside the festival?
Deciding if I should take the 11am or noon shuttle from Chicago for Group E tix.
Also, how long does it take to pickup allotments. Am I fine signing up for the 6pm shuttle back?
If you get there at 11am, expect an hour-hour and a half wait to get in from either line. Allotment pickups can either be super quick or super slow, depending on when they open up the group lines. Last year people said that they started the later groups early.
My best suggestion with DLD is to not be too concerned about time. Have an alternate plan. If you feel that 6pm is cutting it too short, consider an uber back. You might get involved in a share, or meet some new friends and not want to head back that early. DLD is always best when you play it by ear.
I'm a metal fan, but I'm not a huge fan of the bands that they normally get. I'd also love to see the Melvins come around
Beer Temple is running a shuttle again too:
Pairing up with the DMen Tap (who will have a food truck again at Floyds this year) who will be serving coffee, breakfast and more at the pick-up spot.
Also doing a pick-up at Maria's in Bridgeport.
The problem with the bands they get (in terms of my taste) is that it's just way too hardcore and screaming. I'm not really a fan of metal, but I can appreciate guitar and power chords.
When the vocals get super throaty, it's probably my least favorite style of music.
I would suggest taking a later shuttle. You don't want to be stuck in the line and miss the 6PM, knowing your line doesn't even start pickups until 5.
Chance you'll get in before 5 (they did this last year) but don't make plans around that happening.
Maybe Old Style/PBR Day will be more your speed

Consuming a waxed bomber of Dark Matter Iced Coffee without a defibrillator is a move you won't live to regret.
I split a bottle of old dank nick between 2 folks over Xmas. Even as a heavy coffee drinker I felt my heart pounding a million miles a second..
Loving these The Dark Lord Fortunes!!
I've had a full bomber of Dark Matter Coffee and woah. Im pretty sure I was walking on the ceiling.
