    to compare to this to DLD is insane... DLD sells about 6k tickets... this had about a hundred people at the open of the place.. yes i was there and yes it was handeled well.. but if they got DLD numbers they would explode..

    Wasn't comparing to DLD at all. More like the average trip to Munster to pick up Zombie Dust.

    Kind of hard for a lot of people to get there at other times, which is why they're peak hours. I'm not bashing FFF, obviously I wouldn't go if I had a huge problem with how they do things; but the whole too-cool-for-school vibe rubs me the wrong way, and is certainly in contrast to what I experienced at Half Acre today.

    "super smooth nicely done" is a very apt description. Comparing it to DLD is unfair in terms of the volume of traffic, however, Half Acre had staff consistently walking the line and informing people of the cash only vs. credit card lines and that simple step in itself was a huge help. My first DLD was in 2009 and while there a lot less people then in subsequent years even then there wasn't the level of friendly, helpful and knowledgeable folks working the event that HA employed today. I love both breweries, too, but I got a better, more welcoming, thanks-alot-for-coming, vibe today than I've ever received from FFF.

    They should have some left. For reference, here's what their supply looked like at 2:00 when the line had died down:


    And while I was at the counter, they put out probably 10 more cases.

    Was there about an hour ago. Had a lot left in the cooler as well as about 8-10 cases out in the open. Everyone should be good for the rest of the day. No rush whatsoever.

    Went there at noon today when they opened. Had at least 25 cases of DDC left. Can't wait to try it out! They also had Cipher in bombers.

    When I was there last night at 5pm they had about 15-20 case boxes on the floor. Can't imagine it is gone today.
