    Don't worry plenty of fresh hops to go around. Probably going to hit the north gate line early. Most likely rocking a patriots hat

    Last year there was a Hill Farmstead that blew just before I got to the taps. I almost shanked the guy in front of me - it's dawg eat dawg at DLD, yo.

    It's all about timing - but that said, last year I did think the guest taps took a step down from the year before.

    I wonder if we were next each other because I was in that line for HF beer and it blew just a few people before me. Was pissed... But then 10 seconds later I forgot all about it because I was pretty out of it.

    Yes! I was with another BA buddy ( @kdawgmoney )…. I think we ended up getting either Bourbon BA Plead the 5th or Boneyard Notorious TIPA instead.

    I must have been right by you guys too. It was HF Edward. Me and my buddy got a pour. And picked up BBPT5 AND Notorious also so for all I know we were bumping shoulders

    Yup - I was the handsome fellow in line right near you. In fact, devishly handsome, if that helps you pick me out of a crowd.

    Also - someone reading this is the sumbitch who got the last pour - show yourself, you damn coward!

    I was the second gunman on the grassy knoll.

    Actually, I only went to the taps one time last year as soon as we got in the south Gate. Zombie for the Mrs and an Alpha King for me.

    I generally make camp near the guest taps, as I'm not as motivated by the BA variant quest as many are, and generally only like the bottle share while on line. I was definitely not happy with last years guest tap options.

    On a side note, since there are a lot of us from IL in this thread... anyone going to the Chicago Beer Fest at Soldier Field the week before Dragon Abortion Day?

    I will be working the event so it is hard for me to join in the bottle shares that day. I usually try to line up a few small trades so I can go home with some new beers to try. I would prefer to trade a couple of cans rather than bombers. I'm in the Chicago area. I will be bringing a few things to trade. So far Hailstorm Stratus, Old Nation M43 and Boxer, New Glarus Strawberry Rhubarb, and Grand Armory Nutter Your Business Stout. I also have a couple cans left of Hailstorm Cirrus and 18th Street Zero Tolerance, 18th Street The Fox and the Goat, and 18th Street Villain, 2017 KBS.

    Send me a message if interested.... Cheers!

    An idea of some breweries I would like to try:
    Other Half
    Holy Mtn.
    Veil
    Treehouse
    Trillium
    Creature Comfort
    Scofflaw
    Hoof Hearted
    Carton
    Night Shift
    Fiddlehead
    Burial

    Just so you know, there's no recording of line share walkthroughs allowed.

    It does feel like it's been forever. This has been the longest timeframe from the first DLD announcement to DLD ever. Due to this excessive wait there have been reports of people here abandoning the thread, talking jibberish, drinking heavily, getting arrested, being hospitalized...wait a sec...nevermind, that happens here every year regardless.

    People are pretty friendly. Instead of the ol shank, ask if you can have a sip. With all the great beer flowing I always share my beer.

    Did anyone notice the weather forecast for this Saturday (historically DLD)?

    49/44 degrees F, 70% chance of rain and high winds.

    May 13 has got to be better, doesn't it?

    It has never once crossed my mind to ask for a sip of beer from someone who I've never met.

    Who knows where their lips have been?

    Highly unlikely. See the above quote. The other day the forecast called for a high of 58...for this Saturday lol.
