    I can't decide if it will be worth putting up with what will certainly be a shit show...not saying it won't be well organized, but man, with all these beers, how will it not be a massive clusterf#$k? Trying to figure out how early to go--3? 4? 4:30? I may just sit this one out. They'll be back!

    Gonna be going. Likely heading around 4pm. Going to try and have CBS tonight at Tilia.

    I will be there around 3-3:30 since I have to study anyway.

    I made dinner reservations, hopefully they'll be serving the flights downstairs in the dining room as well as upstairs?

    only upstairs, according to the rep at tilia tonight. he said there would be plenty of high ABV offerings, so things won't be running out super quickly

    I guess they are serving everything in flights, so hopefully that will make it last longer - I definitely need to try some CBS, I've never had the pleasure...

    I'd go, but the clusterfucking mass of humanity will almost certainly outweigh the utility I'd get from the beverages. Just more for you brave souls attending I suppose.

    According to the email, the event will be entirely upstairs. The doors do not open until 5pm for the fireside room (upstairs). Both flights will be a whopping $16! I am still attending, but may stay downstairs given the financial obligation involved in having both a better half and CBS (plus, I have class at 6 and two flights will not make for a very productive class time).

    so will it be only flights? I would like to try better half and cbs, but don't want to pay $16 for a flight.

    I think it is flights only, although for the last Goose Island night you could get just one of the pours (in the small flight glass) if I remember correct. I will be there at 4pm.

    Flight#2 doesn't look too promising. If i only had $32 dollars i'd get two of flight number 1...lol

    Damn i wish they were serving individual glasses, all i want is Better Half, KBS and CBS.

    Same. The good news is we might be able to get single pours of flight #2 tomorrow :-D (I'm sure at $9/glass)

    Backwoods and CBH aren't good enough for a flight?
