    Been following for a few years, as this will be my 3rd DLD. Not a rookie, not a vet. As such, I don't feel the need to speak up much, but when someone says the 3F/FFF thing is a big deal, I do feel the need to be even more petty and point out that is isn't. I can't stand to be out-petied. :rolling_eyes:

    The Dark Lord doesn't give f*** about beer cred or what is acceptable.

    I'm with you in general, but there is no waste of space in a DLD thread!

    I'd say calling it a big deal is a tad much. And give yourself some credit, three DLDs is pro status in my book...especially if two of the years were 15 and 16.

    Ok, fine, there is nothing too petty in the DLD thread. On the quest to 150 pages, and with no real updates since ticket purchases, all shit shall fly. I concede. :slight_frown:

    3F vs FFF debate is fun and 96% trolling.

    Rant enabled this is just in general, not directed towards anyone in particular.

    I bit my tongue yesterday on this, but I'm calling bullshit. This is 'merica, not 'elgium. 3 Floyds is commonly regarded as one of the world's most popular breweries (at least according to this site or rate beer or other biased US Rankings). The point is, 3 Floyds is more iconic in this country and should have the easier, shorter, more logical abbreviation. Feel free to use the 2 letter/number abbreviation for DFB on Belgium websites. I hereby declare from now on 3 Floyds is to be abbreviated 3F. It just makes sense. Their website is 3floyds.com They commonly use the number 3 before Floyds.

    Drie Fonteinen? Shouldn't that be DF? Or better yet, since they call themselves Brouwer Drie Fonteinen how about BDF? No one calls it 3 Fonteien. It's fookin Drie!

    Not sure how much your drinking, but if your first thought is to finger yourself....just continue drinking and I'm sure someone will two finger discount your Power Bottom when you are passed out.

    I say we need to develop levels of DLD attendance status. Especially since only a select few here could match my bona fides in this regard. Hey, it's all about making me feel good about myself.

    I'm not necessarily willing to cede that attending 3 DLDs is pro level; a first time sacrifice (errr attendee) is a noob, and 2-timer is an affiliate. A 3-timer is an associate, no, sorry, that sucks - I hate accounting firm lingo - so let's say candidate.

    Go above 4 DLDs, and I'll grant pro status.

    Above that? I'm sure there's 100%ers - and I take the knee before them..

    For me? Attended in '06-'12, missed '13 because the fest sucked in '12, and didn't know that they'd expand the fest grounds in '13, and bounced back in '14-'16.

    I'll accept DLD Duke, or perhaps, Earl.

    Earl of Dark Lord Day.

    I can live with that.

    Kinda reminds me of people calling Buffalo Wild Wings BW3. Should be BW2 if anything.

    YoungLad Initiate (133) Apr 27, 2009 Indiana

    I hate the abbreviations on here - it's a form of hazing. If you don't know the lingo, somehow you are inferior to those who do. Spare me that crap - just tell me, in plain language, what you in search of. If you meet up with some peeps at Hampton or whatever, do you speak in abbreviations? No, you do not.

    Someone would finger my dwarven power bottom? I'll be on the lookout for that - fortunately, I've never been "that guy".

    Drie Fonteinen's website is
    Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen - Beersel
    3fonteinen.be/

    And they actually have a 3 on their label sooooooo they have more claim to it than FFF

    The original name is Buffalo Wild Wings & Weck thus BW3 but they removed the weck from the original name some years ago

    Pics please :wink:

    Outside of their website/address, I've never seen it anywhere, especially in regards to an actual abbreviation.

    lol, I heard that, so much...however, back to @HouseofWortship :

    FFF is what FFF uses for FFF. They have saved us all the trouble of deciding how their brewery should be abbreviated, by showing us how they want it abbreviated.

    Just a guess, but this is most likely derived from the fact that they have respect for Drie, a brewery that is over a century old, unlike certain other 'mericans who have more respect for their freedom fries and confederate flag branded pickups :stuck_out_tongue:

    Yeah, but who gives a shit? We're in a DLD thread and we all know when someone says 3F what they mean.

    3F puts on a hell of a fest even though I'm not crazy about the main 3F beer they sell at their fest. I enjoy other 3F beers, though, and enjoy the people and bottle shares, so I still go to the 3F fest.

    BTW, I'm so glad we've come to this level in the thread...it was a curveball I didn't see coming.

    This might have been asked before but In prior years what time do they announce IP ticket sales at the brewpub? And how long until they were sold out?

    We're gonna hit 200 pages if we're going to argue about Three (3) Floyds using the number "3" instead of the word "three."

    Just to keep this absurdity going...I take it no one has ever gone to 3floyds.com? I don't think threefloyds.com leads anywhere...

    lol! This is good stuff right here. I'm glad we can take it this far.

    "3 Floyds" is not an abbreviation, which, well, is what I thought we were talking about right?

    If ya'll fellers wanna shit all over the very meticulously crafted :rolling_eyes: abbreviation of "FFF" to differentiate Three Floyds, (which shall also be known as 3 Floyds), from "3F," well that is your lofty and noble prerogative. But, just a small reminder, us internet dweebs who use FFF aren't the ones that coined this abbreviation for FFF.

    And, who gives a shit? Well, I usually measure the most shit given by who gets the most passionate and vigorously defensive about it :wink:
