    just think, if the dragon were born, it might have burned down the brewery.

    Where else do you think Dragon Abortions would be performed?

    In a back alley of kings landing with a coat hanger after having drank 2 bottles of bvdl and the father falsely reassuring you that he will still love you knowing full well he's already seeing that slut smog from middle earth!

    Combining two nerdy dragon references. Nice!

    I hope FFF adds some new breweries into the guest tap rotation... The past few years the guest taps have been saturated by Firestone Walker, The Bruery, and Cigar City. What breweries would be a welcomed addition for 2017?

    (Had to pivot the Dragon Abortion conversation, shit was getting old)

    Would love to see some NE IPA focused breweries but I'm guessing not likely. Most of the breweries I've seen at DLD are either Chicago and Michigan based, or are breweries with whom FFf has developed a long lasting relationship. Highly doubt we'll be seeing Tree House, Trillium, Maine Beer Company, Veil, etc there.

    I doubt you'll see hoof. The barely make any kegs for anime other than themselves. That being said I'll have several of their cans at dld.

    Something to cut the huge amounts of BA stouts and keep your palate excited.

    I dunno, looks like they are about to do a Konkey Dong release and I wouldn't be surprised if part of that was to get kegs over to DLD.

    Pipeworks mentioned they're going a collaboration with FFF, so it'd be nice to see that on tap there. they mentioned it last week, so who knows if it'll be ready by DLD, or what it is for that matter.

    I know some people joked about this but how could this NOT be called like Dark Lord vs. Unicorn and then by extension we'll see it in the guest taps.

    Has Three Floyds done any other collabs in 2017 besides Pipeworks, The Bruery, and Off Color? I think it's safe to say those breweries will all have beer on the guest taps.

    I tend to bring "palate cleansers" to share -- sours, fresh hops, etc. I would just as soon the taps stick with stouts.

    They did a collab with Fat Heads. It was an IPA called something like Confidentiality & Disclosure (something along those lines at least).

    I've always spent the majority of my time in a big share. On occasion I'd grab a beer from a tap or my friend would bring me one. I'm looking to spend a bit more time checking out the taps this year. I think with the weather the past couple years I didn't really feel like standing out in it. Plus whenever I checked out the taps last year I wasn't too impressed.

    Can someone send me a copy of the Dragon Abortion image file (hopefully hi-res)? A link will be fine. I would like to play with it a bit (thinking of incorporating the DLD logo into it somehow). Thanks!

    Based on these comments, I'm guessing we're going to find @Jaypay1983 dead in the bottle pile with his backpack missing.

    Dibs on the Haze. :stuck_out_tongue:
