    I just moved to Tampa last week and secured a ticket. I'll be there solo so looking forward to meeting you people there.

    Also, looking to join any groups for bottle shares if they'd be willing to have me and my beer.

    Yeah food looks pretty bunk. I had a feeling including food in the ticket price was not going to result in an awesome deal for us.

    Looks like I will be bringing some food... That is not going to be enough for the amount drinking I have planned.

    Yep. Ropa. Done and done. (Also, not to nitpick, but eggs are vegetarian-friendly?)

    This is going to be like a beer nerds and elementary school lunch table mashup. ISO: Hunabrownies. FT: pudding cup

    Vegetarian yes..Vegan no

    So I'm confused (which isn't hard) for the extra cost of $50 or so we get to chose one item :grimacing: That better be some badass Ropa, Brat, Potatoe, Mac salad. Heck maybe the brownie has somthing special in it for that cost.

    Going to be a great time anyway without the extra 5000+ beards walking around :wink:

    Just when I thought I could go a day or two without thinking about Huna Day...

    they add DB Huna to the tap list. Hoping most have had it and I can easily get a pour!

    I almost decided to be 1 of the first people to plan on NOT going even after buying my EC ticket.

    Monday morning, my closest friend in life tragically died in a car accident. (28yo) I have been mourning my loss all week. We had planned on meeting up during the summer to share some special beer after he finished his degree. He wanted to try the new Hunahpu and I have a DBH that I've been saving for him. He surprised me late last year with some pizza boy funkers and other sours to open when we would have met up. (We live in different states) Ugh. Happy things like the greatest beerfest and sad things like an end to life just don't add up! Every time I think about Hunahpu's Day I can't help but feel guilty. I've felt so many mixed emotions about going, but I ultimately decided that he would probably want me to still go and enjoy life. I guess I'll just be keeping the DBH for awhile now. No idea what I'll do with it.

    My condolences, sir. If I may, please approach Huna Day as a celebration of life. It would seem from your writing that your friend would want you to enjoy the day. I would also suggest that you carry your prized liquid with you and share the treasure with those who would appreciate it the most. Cherish the memories.

    Oh, how terrible. I'm so sorry for this loss you're suffering. I agree that you should go and celebrate his life there - you'll be surrounded by friends like us.

    As someone who has dealt with loss, I can sympathize with what you are going through. My prayers are with you. That being said....if you were planning to drink that dbh, pour your friends portion, and dump it in his honor. Beer seems very trivial in times like this, but as others have said, celebrate his life, and try and enjoy the day.

    So sorry for your loss, I have lost a lot of loved ones as well but go to Huna. He will be there in spirit and enjoy the day & that dbh with you!

    Thanks every one. That really felt good to see some of your responses. I almost deleted my post immediately after posting it because who wants to see depressing personal news? I'm glad I didn't though. Apologies for the sad feels. On the positive side of things, the family has decided to have a celebration of life roughly when he would have graduated. Many beers will be shared with his family on that day. I was the friend who got him into craft after all. Shared my first Cantillon with him at Monk's Cafe during Philly Beer Week 2013. Ugh, I think I'm doing it again. Thanks again... I'm excited for that taplist!!!

    Hopefully the DB Huna line will be longer than the MD one!

    Is the Summation BA? Can't find much information on it, can't wait!

    This will be my first Huna day. I'm arriving near midnight on Friday and flying out Sunday morning. Saturday night will be my only chance for events/bottle share! I'm from San Francisco Bay Area, so I can bring some Russian River, Bruery, etc. What is everyone interested in? So excited to compare Pliny the Elder and Heady Topper!

    This might be a premature question, but what time is everyone getting there? I know it starts at 11, but is there any need to get there that much before? The gf is trying to plan brunch at 9am and I don't want to be rushed.

    I feel like a 10:30ish arrival is cool right?
