    Also if you click the vip section it looks like the VIP cuvée will only be available for vip members in that area. Kinda nice perk!

    I hope J Wakefield has I Let My Tape Rock. Given the fact that the trade value continues to climb hopefully that booth draws people away from the other great beers on tap :slight_smile:

    Are you sure about that? They've got three booths: A6, CCB East, CCB West. A6 is inline with all the other 'A' Tents. Then there are two "CCB" sections, neither of which are located in the red VIP area.

    Edit: NM I see what you're saying... searching the map on a computer doesn't allow the interactive feature. FWIW, the Cuvee' is also listed at the CCB West Tent.

    Thank you! I did see the option but decided to splurge on VIP in the end.

    Has anyone else noticed that Cycle wasn't in the original announcement of breweries, and now they aren't listed on the app?

    So how did everyone find out about the app release? I wouldn't have known if I didn't check this thread. Also, noticed 3 Sons will have multiple locations. Is that something they have done in years past?

    "Cuvee" is in the West tent. BA Cuvee is in the VIP tent.

    Cycle rarely goes to Hunah Day...last time I remember them there was 2016 and they brought a Sixtel of Crank and a Sixtel of some Wine Barrel Aged Stout they liked so little it's now a running joke..they were out of beer before noon and split...before 2016 I don't recall the last year they were there

    CCB pays for 2 kegs....the rest is on the brewery to supply themselves. Some step up and bring enough to last the day, others bail at 1pm and enjoy the perks of being at Huna Day

    If I remember correctly, they only had two beers listed last year, but had at least 8 beers available throughout the day. Maybe more. Some really good ones too.

    Cycle does it's own thing on Friday. They've said they like for CCB to be able to have their own event and they do their thing.

    Tap list is incredible. If you go sit in Wakefield or 3 Sons line for 30 minutes this year you're really making a mistake there are a couple of dozen first stop worthy beers available.

    Unless JWB brings Let my Tape Rock/Bake/Antique/BA Affogato then it's worth the lineup ;-)

    I dont believe there is a non-VIP 12 bottle ticket is there? I know this wasnt advertised at first sale but i think anyone with a 12 bottle ticket is considered VIP. Hope I am not wrong here.

    I agree I wish more breweries would bring beer to last the day. 100% dont expect whales for 4 hours but even just trying core stuff from places I havent been is nice.

    The BA cuvée is not the same beer as the cuvée of Huna years. It will be different.

    The only brewery I saw missing from the list that was originally announced is Great Notion. Don’t see them on the app

    J wake usually brings A list beers to this event, in the past he usually has 4 different beers and taps them 2 at a time, they also poured some bottles last year too.

    But tap list looks promising, hopefully some breweries bring some unlisted stuff as well.

    Ccb is going to need to add more beers.

    They are a small crew work force they are adding hours to their day just to release at a earlier hour... You want them to extend that even longer?

    If someone waits in the full line each time.... Not cutting.. I personally see nothing wrong with that. Cycle allows this. Wakefield etc.

    So I didn't notice it but what exactly does the vip get you?

    Rumor cuvee bottle

    Gasparilla Sunday

    Is there early entrance? VIP only?

    I can freely admit I didn't fully read every Post about VIP

    Any help is appreciated

    It appears just thecuvee bottle and special vip area at the fest with a couple extra taps, shade, special food options and different bathrooms. No early entry. Gasparilla is for all attendees, not just VIP

    No, I'm not that skilled. :slight_smile:

    I'll be updating stuff as I see it. The big thing I'm waiting on is Wakefield. I'd imagine other people will announce additional beers. For example, I saw today that Garagiste announced a third mead they were bringing. Then I checked and that was updated on the app. So I added it to the list.

    I'll be checking right before the festival and adding anything new to the list. Until then it will be periodic updates when I see anything. Feel free to let me know if you guys see anything, and I'll add it to the list.

    Did anyone else notice on the map the area in Lot 7 that says "Jameson"? Any idea what that is? Surely someone didn't think it was a good idea to serve Jameson at this event, what with all of the 12% ABV chasers.

    I did notice that and thought the same exact thing. I will stay clear but I'm not sure everyone else will be that smart.

    I assume this has something to do with the cask mate stuff they do, but I agree it sounds dangerous

    What would you say is the average wait time at Huna day? 30 minutes was mentioned earlier as a max wait time, but what is the norm. What would be a good guess on number of beers you get to try during the event. Not counting sharing from something your buddy got in another line. I'm trying to put a strategy together but I'm struggling.
