    as much as i'd love to have more vanilla...gonna pass on this event. last time i went to a bcbs takeover there (around february maybe?) the place was wall to wall crowded when we arrived at 6, and none of the bcbses were tapped until 7. vanilla, coffee, and bramble were great, but ugh, the crowds.

    edit: cherry on tap will only make it worse.

    I don't think there is a more true statement right now. A lot of people just collectively said s#*%

    Haha, I was just waiting to see if someone would post this. I have to go to a rehersal dinner nearby, so I wasn't going to get there early as it is. Hoping there is something left when we move the party later on.

    EDIT: Didn't they do tickets a year or two ago for a GI Takeover at Paddy's? I remember leaving work early, getting a bar stool, eating a sandwich, and hunkering down for a lot of good BCS. Ahh, the good ole days....

    Went here for lunch last Friday and saw the flyer. Probably should have posted about it immediately instead of going four days thinking it would be respectable affair.

    Yes, and they rebuilt out in DeKalb. It's the new Kentucky, just with slightly more teeth.

    Sorry to those I upset - mainly Billy Madison. I award myself no points.

    Since I have been fortunate enough to try most of the beers involved I will be choosing not to attending, leaving room for one more person who might not have yet. Hopefully someone who fits that description finds out about it through this post and enjoys him/herself. Cheers!

    I like this place, but they had a BCS night during Chicago Craft Beer Week, and I heard the BCS lasted about 20 minutes. You can't get a seat in here on a normal Friday night anyway, I will be steering clear of this human parking lot.

    hope they have the baudionia, that would make it an epic night, short of having rare and KH available!

    Agreed. As someone who does not have work that day, I will probably get there early and feast before the shitshow starts. Might have to double fist the vanilla and cherry rye before they run dry...as I have not had either, I really hope it is possible to get both...

    Idk, based on the low turnout at Monk's (which, granted, doesn't have Cherry Rye) I suspect that huge demand for bottles doesn't necessarily translate to huge demand for a beer on tap.

    With vanilla and cherry on, all bets are off.....

    Maybe so many people saw this and decided not to go that it will be eerily empty?? I'm going to check it out around 6:30 and if it's as much of a zoo as it sounds like, just pop over to Sheffields.
