    But if I only bought 1 ticket online this year, I take that to mean I could totally get my taproom A to go with my online C for my grand total of 2.

    That I would ask them about. Good question.

    My guess is they count those as two separate purchases (which they are) and can easily identify any separate purchases with the same name and invalidate them. That would not be a hard process for them to do at all, but I don't know if they actually do that.

    I can't imagine that they are going to actually invalidate. What if two people attending have the same first and last name? I think it'd have to be purchased with the same credit card.

    They check the address, too. Unless your credit card/shipping address are different from your ID.

    That said, they've said in the past they would check for multiple purchases and I ran into a guy who had bought several tickets using the same name and credit card and none of his were invalidated. So...

    Yeah, I think it is just a scare tactic. I'm skeptical that Three Floyd's has either the ability or desire to police it that closely.

    Also, can't you pay cash for in person tickets?

    Do they give you the ticket at pub release or do they look at your license and put you on a will call list these days? For the FFF Warpig's event I think they photo copied license or wrote down info from it for event day will call.

    No clue, I've never bought in person. But I'm sure I could get away with it even though I already bought online, my address on my license does not match the address on my credit card.

    A few years back I got my ticket at the brewpub and they checked your license/ ID, then wrote your name in pen on the physical ticket.

    Again, this was a few years back & Three Floyds has a tendency to change things up on a regular basis, so take it for what it's worth

    Supposedly there's a dozen people waiting at three Floyds thinking dld tickets are on sale. I've seen no social posts. This is coming from a dark lord day FB group. April Fools joke?

    Pretty much every year, people line up at the brewpub on the weekends after tickets go on sale, hoping to get lucky.

    I heard pub sales would be Group E only with vintages not variant stamps on the tickets.

    If I'm going to release pub tickets for locals I'm not making social media posts and doing it on April Fool's Day so people who catch wind through social media think its an unverified prank.

    Edit: My money is on another Easter release.

    They take down your name and address. You get a photo copy of a ticket with your ID on it as proof of purchase. At DLD, you get your physical ticket/lanyard.

    I thought the same thing as last year they had 2015 variants. Hopefully i get in line early enough to still get some of the less sought after but still good variant.

    A friend of mine heard the rumor and went and got on line. I didn't take the bait. If they sell local, it will be on a Monday or Tuesday, with a 6:00 am tweet saying they are doing so.

    We really need FFF to make some big announcements soon so we can push this on to 100. Think we've run the course until pub release...

    We'll catch up big time closer to the event between multiple weather updates per day, the inevitable "what are you bringing" for 5 pages or so, discussions about parking followed by several posts about the evils of drunk driving, and answering the same questions 5 times.

    Just curious - being local, I'm not tuned in to what "out-of-towners" are thinking when they come to NW Indiana.

    What breweries are you considering visiting? Flossmoor (still? even though I haven't considered them to be relevant for maybe 4-5 years), 18th? What?

    Discuss.

    Not Discus - that's an Olympic track and field event.

    I'm sure several of us have thought about it, but come on, we have more than a month to drink stuff from our cellar!

    That and if we bring any IPA's that weren't collected fresh out of the tank, the neckbeards will shun us.

    There is definitely still a lot of time for the cellar/inventory to change, but I've also already tagged a handful of beers for DLD. Some of them may get drank, but I have a general idea (I think) of a few that I'll be bringing.

    I mean, yeah, I have a rough plan. However, part of it depends on what I can get fresh from Mikerphone and/or Noon Whistle. The quantity of those also affects how many stouts I can cram in the backpack.
