    Necromancer was awesome last year. I bought a bomber for one of the doctors I used to work with who is a big coffee guy. Someone stole it from the lounge fridge. I hope they thought it was beer.

    When walking into a group sharing Handjee verticals, return the favor or you become the circle jerk.

    I've had bombers of Dark Matter iced coffee to myself.... Heart pounding. Apartment completely cleaned. Blasting Misfits records. Super Smash Bros... And then an unplanned nap 3 hours later.
    The Black Hole Necromancer they had at DLD last year was incredible. I know to share now.

    I'm a Dark Lord Day regular that is looking to upgrade the ole backpack to a cooler backpack. Any solid recommendations?

    I was thinking the exact same thing. This will be my 6th year and I've used the same ol normal backback the previous 5 years. Not bad but not great. Would like to know what others recommend as well.

    I use this cooler for work and also transporting beers. It holds temperature pretty well. I like the two side pockets for dry stuff as well. Sometimes, I've left the top open and I've gotten a couple extra bottles inside as well. I plan on bringing mine for DLD

    I've used this backpack for four DLDs. It holds 4 bombers comfortably with ice packs. You can also squeeze in a couple 12oz's in there too. It has some nice side pockets for bottle openers, beef jerky, etc.

    Pro Tip: don't use ice packs. Freeze bottles of water instead and drink the water throughout the day as they melt. Keeps your bottles cool and your body hydrated.

    Great call on freezing the h20 bottles. Only problem is if the weather is cold as it's been in the past they probably won't melt much!

    Pro-er Tip: Don't use frozen water bottles. Freeze IV solution instead and inject fluids directly into your system as it melts. Added bonus, doesn't take up room in your stomach like water does. :wink:

    My flocking hero! I should have a few decent bottles. Pretty much giving up my limited cellar right now in trades so that I have good stuff from each coast at DLD.

    ...I was a little embarrassed to say I actually use ziploc bags full of ice, then drink them after they melt. Yeah.

    We usually have a vehicle and a DD so we keep cases of water relatively close.

    Any chance I could buy or trade for a Treehouse Julious or a Heady Topper? Not sure what I could trade though access to some surly about the best options here in South Dakota maybe some Toppling Goliath.

    Use the IP Trade Spreadsheet or post in the IP trading forums as it gets a bit closer. I was able to trade for some TH last year with Abraxas, so it can be done! You should have no problem acquiring a Heady Topper. If you have the TG bombers (e.g. DDH Sue), you should be able acquire what you're looking for.

    If we're going to make this a thing, I'll join in with a BA Java Ten Fidy.

    However, from my experience, you need something better than "find me" to make it happen, especially after everyone has had a few. :wink:

    I've been doing this for years, but with the weather it has always been covered by a warm hat and waterproof hood.

    That's funny. On homebrewtalk my username is: patrickgoss

    Don't know why I didn't stick with that on BA, likely because of all the BA hate on homebrewtalk, I didn't want those friends knowing I was here!

    Damn I know, but if somebody else never had KBS, Black Note, BCS, BCS Coffee, 18th Street Vanilla Hunter, Atomic Whale, I'm ready to share. Wish I had more time to chase beers and a bigger budget
