    Yep, I was hoping it was going to be in June, to make travel easier, but alas....it looks like I'll be flying down this weekend for 4/23-4/26, then coming right back down 5/29-6/1 for this shindig.

    I plan on going, just not sure yet if I'm gonna do the all day thing or go for 3-4 hours. I didn't go to the 1 year anniversary but I went to MBCP and I'd imagine it will be timed taps which kind of sucks.

    Had a great time at the bottle share for MBCP, and will likely be in FL that weekend, but I have an event in Tampa the same day. Will be sure to stop in before the 30th, though!

    Not going to be able tomake it this year. Was the Beer related highlight of 2014 for me.
    My pocket book is happy though. $6 a pour.. WTF. I guess they need to fund the expansion next door.

    I'm usually the first person to comment on overpriced beers but $6 is nothing. Bars down here charge more than that for a 12oz hopgun. I've seen muy bonita snifters for 12.

    Mangbus Initiate (0) Aug 25, 2014 Florida

    $6 is fine, it just means you have to focus your efforts on the stuff you can't just order regularly.

    I'll be running ticket tent south from 11-4. Come say hi. And note that we are selling tickets early so that we don't have a huge bottleneck right at noon of people wanting tickets and beer right when the event starts. So you can show up a little before noon and get tickets so your'e ready right when it begins,.

    I live just 15 minutes away from this event. If you plan on coming down then save your hotel money. I have 2 rooms available. If your flying in I can provide transportation. What's in it for me you ask? Well beer of course. You stay at my place and buy my beer tickets for the event.

    Bring local beers with you and we can do a bottle share at my place as well. I have tons of beer on hand. If anyone is interested, please message me.

    Not sure if anyone is interested in those specifically. But I can almost guarantee people with French Toast will be around.

    I just figured since it would be on draft at the event that a quick swap might work. I don't want to carry around bottles on a whim though. I have a saison Bernice for trade but I don't think a French toast is worth that.

    HA!
    Yesterday's leftovers where just fine with me. I could only handle three beers, but they where all great and I just sat at the bar and had them brought to me. I happened to sit next to some home boys and that was an extra treat.

    Morning Wood was my personal favorite of the day. The Mexican Coffee was the surprise hit of the day. Excellent beer that surpassed any expectation as I wasn't certain how it would taste. They also had some great Berlinerweisses. We ended up sharing a table with some new people and subsequently shared beers. Got to at least sample everything I wanted. It was a great time.

    The Lychee Berliner was a highlight. I also really liked entitALEd. I didn't get to try Morning Wood. Mexican Coffee was damn good. I tried that Carolina Reaper beer. That shit was hot. I couldn't finish the whole thing. Also had Snowed In, French Toast, Margarita Berlinerweiss (tasted sort of like horseradish), No Crusts, J Wake DFPF (good, but definitely not worth the hype) and Sherry Zhukov. I was a successful day. It was also hot as fuck.

    I was there for the 12 and 3 releases. Had the favs MBCP and Last Snow. Also had Randy's Old Fashion and it was delicious. Tried two guest taps. Fat Head Barrel Aged Battle Axe and Saltwater Double Barrel. They were all great except Double Barrel. Beer was aged in wine barrels and to me tasted way to acidic and tart. Almost like the wine took over and decimated and kind of beer traces it once had. I'm a sucker for barrel aged and just had to try it. I know better next time.

    Only gripe I have about the event itself were the pours. I'm paying 6 bucks for a pour which I really don't mind doing. However... Give it to me right out of the tap. They were pouring into pitchers and from there pouring into cups which they had lined up five deep. I know they had to keep the long lines moving but I really wouldn't have mind waiting a little longer for a nice pour.
