    Those would be fine. I have some similar coolers that have always been allowed in. As long as you can carry it over your shoulder and it isn't a hard side cooler, you are good.

    I'll be easy to spot, just look at my avatar and I'll be dressed like that.


    I seriously won't be dressed like that, but it'd be pretty funny if I was. Sparty loves him some BA beers!

    I don't know, I was at a wedding with Sparty last night and he skipped the bar and was hogging the cupcake table. Not even joking...

    I can't imagine how much that thing will weigh after it soaks up all the rain.

    Not sure if this has been asked yet, but do I have to wear a shirt?

    Depends where and when you plan on passing out, and if you plan on puking into a garbage can.

    Shirts are not required, however Munster police require both male and female nipples to be covered by pasties prior to entering town limits.

    While you're at it, look into Dark Lord Day banana hammocks. Nothing screams tote bags and heavy metal like men running around in Three Floyds branded pasties and banana hammocks..

    This is what happens when they make us wait for the list of variants.

    Let's be honest, the thread would go back to total nonsense an hour after the list comes out. MAYBE two.

    I think the release of the variant list is good for at least 3-4 hours of craziness focused on who will and won't get what variant and what variants are the best with total nonsense mixed in and taking over by the next day.

    We may as well get back to speculation. In the spirit of March Madness, how many variants will there be and what are they?

    My guess:
    1- Marshmallow Handjee
    2- Muerte
    3- BA DL
    4- Muerte with Cherries
    5- Cadillac Barrel DL

    I'll play along.

    History suggests we definitely get Handjee, Bourbon and Muerte. The next few depends on if I want to go with my heart or my brain.

    Heart
    4) Something similar to FVM. By that, I mean vanilla, cocoa nibs, and a top tier adjunct (coconut or cherry are my preferences).

    5) Coffee

    6) Other adjunct not used in 4.

    Strong personal preference to bourbon or cognac/brandy barrels.

    Head, ie what I'm expecting

    4) One "good" variant, most likely with coffee or cherry since I don't think they've ever done coconut. Probably in a non-bourbon barrel.

    5) basic DL aged in something super-sweet

    6) Cardamom, just because

    7) hot mustard aged in maloort.

    Really hoping for an Indian Vindaloo variant aged in some sort of Indian rice wine barrel.

    7) Some additional bullshit in a wine barrel
    8) Biggleswade

    That hot mustard has been rumored for years. FFF will never make it because the people want it.

    The bottles for those bullshit in winebarrels were generally cool looking, at least all the ones without paper on them were all cool to me.

    You can drink your Dark Lord and you can share your Dark Lord, but your fest is over when you start sharing Dark Lord you've already drunk.

    I don't think you have to worry about having awesome variants in group A. It's practically a guarantee you'll get something good in group A...it's the people in group C & D that will be sweating it out.
     
  35. ChiCubs78

    ChiCubs78 Initiate (0) Jan 2, 2015 Illinois

    But what about group B?!

    (Disclaimer - I'm group A. Just giving a shout out to the forgotten.)

    Assuming they do something even remotely like they did last year variant wise, A and B should both be fine.

    C will be fine if you line up at a decent time.
     
  39. ChiCubs78

    ChiCubs78 Initiate (0) Jan 2, 2015 Illinois

    In my experience the first peoples in group B have a crack at a top 2 variant. Typically the number three variant and BBA DL are easily available for group B.

    Yep, that's what I've thought as well. It's just a matter of what that 2nd top tier variant is (assuming the first is Vanilla/Handjee), and whether I want to try and be one of the first people in line to try for one of them.
