    LOL....I'm not new to DLD but I'm new to the Friday night bottle shares. I've always came and left DLD Saturday. First time getting a room Friday night to Sunday morning. Bottle share is mostly to socialize and make new friends and meet people from this site. Plus it's always nice to have some small tastes of other beers, whales or shelfies from other places out of Chicagoland distro.

    I am at the Comfort Suites in Lansing, was maybe going to a bottle share in Munster for Friday night but if we can get a Lansing one together that would be clutch.

    Apparently it was just too good for BA, history has been scrubbed by the matrix, again :flushed: lmfao. At least there's no risk of derailing this beast.

    Question:

    What would Dragon Abortion's popular songs be?

    Well the good news is the "all of the variants are infected especially vanilla" train has hit random co-workers of mine who know I'm going.

    "Dude there's no variants this year, I heard it in line at Central Waters"

    Damn you people and your rumors. Damn you all to hell

    LOL! I literally laughed out loud when I saw that. I love the beer crowd and the paranoid, rumor propagating, completely unfounded out of the ass assumptions.

    I thought the rumor was they were all infected WITH vanilla. It's kind of a heat check for FFF.

    I've never been one to believe much of what people say when it comes to things like this. FFF has always been very tight lipped. No one at FFF would tell anyone outside of FFF that there was a problem. Most problems can be worked around without anyone ever having a clue. Let's say the handjee they were "supposedly" making did in fact get infected. FFF dumps it and it's not a variant this year. Having multiple and different variants every year allows for this. You never know what variants are going to get released any given year. FFF could simply say "We opted not to make that variant again this year." Who knows? But I think that's the point. You can't believe rumors because that's all they are. FFF is the source and all we can believe (or not) is what they tell us.

    FFF will have enough variants, they just have to cover themselves with an option in case someone is stuck with a variant they can't have due to food allergy or lifestyle. #Baron von CocoaPeanut #Bacon Maple Handjee

    The Friday bottle shares look so awesome, but no way in hell could i partake and make it to the fest.

    I'm usually in bed by 10 or 11 to wake up a 6.30.

    I was in very bad shape after the Friday night shares last year. I really had to force down the first few pours the next day. After ten or twelve all was right again.

    It's FFF policy and practice to release details after the fest to ensure accuracy....they get sick of people complaining about how things should have been run...

    These dragon abortion jokes are already more stale than the brewery burned down jokes.
