    Depends which they will have but I think it was $15/mini-snifter set (2 glasses) from Dark Matter Coffee. Last two years there were two different looking sets of mini-snifters from them. Also, in 2015, they had a gigantic 22oz chalice that weighed probably a couple of pounds and last year they had a 3rd mini-snifter set (black FFF logo) not made by Dark Matter. Not sure how much those cost though.

    I think the dark matter mini-snifters were more expensive than that. Maybe $25? I know Sunday me is always upset with Saturday drunk me on spending way too much on glassware.

    I think I remember the dark matter being 25/set and 3floyds at 15/set

    For what it's worth, for the past two years there has always been extra glassware of every type on sale at star lounge and dark matter on western for at least a few weeks after. The only thing those places didnt have last year were the awesome coffee mugs dark sold with the coffee at DLD.

    I don't believe this was the case last year.

    Ok you might be right...perhaps I am only thinking of two years ago. I might be getting old.

    It definitely was. I remember receiving an email from Dark Matter a few weeks after DLD. You were able to purchase them on their website (I chose the gold snifters) and then you could pick it up at their Western shop.

    yeah just confirmed by finding the old email. They only had the gold and silver snifter set in the email, but I believe they had other glassware in the store.

    Looking back at last year's DLD thread people started getting their tickets April 6th. I'm thinking it'll be a week or so before we start seeing tickets since DLD was moved ahead 2 weeks.

    The email confirmation says tickets will be shipped 30 days prior to the fest and we will receive tracking numbers. So prepare for a deluge of "GOT MY TRACKING NUMBER! "GOT MINE TOO! CANT WAIT FOR THAT TOTE BAG!" posts in about 7-10 days.

    I objectively agree that cliff bars are a good idea. But when a dude from Texas fills your glass with Atrial Rubicite because he likes your zip lock bag of Whiteys, it helps to bolster the merit of the white castles.

    At the end of the day, as long as everyone brings some kind of food to help themselves level out, we'll all have less mystery vomit on our shoes and tote bags.

    Apparently the wait list takes the form of a human queue every Saturday morning at the brewpub. Or maybe it's every morning...

    I've heard from a friend of a friend that A group tix will go on sale Easter Sunday. I'd make plans to be in queue at 6:00 am (EST) that day.

    For Sure.

    Donuts will be served, accompanied by coffee aged in former DL Handjee barrels. All gratis.

    Trust me.

    I think it was 2012 I got DLD tickets on Easter Sunday, they haven't done it on that day since. They also had BA Alpha Klaus variants during that sale.

    In a kbs thread, some dude posted that he passed on kbs and would rather just have his mom (from Florida) load up on morningwood and wide awake.

    I replied saying that I would pay to have his mom load up on some morningwood.

    A mod deleted my post. Reason: "stupid reply".

    I feel much more at home in this thread.

    DLD would absolutely NOT be better off without the bands. The majority of the brewery's employees passionately enjoy the music, they even brew these beers with the bands in mind. Metal has always been an intrinsic part of FFF's story. I don't love metal, but I don't think there is a genre of music that would better compliment an event called DARK LORD DAY. If for whatever reason the brewery could no longer have live music, I don't think this event goes on. DLD is a savage celebration of beer culture, and there is no brand of music more savage than the lineup curated by Nick Floyd and co. You can always just avoid that tent too, just so you know.
