    i am hoping ccb comes out with information on how entry will be for the event. that should give people an idea when to show up. regardless, people will still be showing up at 9:00, and based off how long it took to get in last year, i really dont blame them. i hope they have a good system on getting people in very quickly. it seems like a long time 11-4 but if you factor in the lines being long, that would give you a chance to try maybe 10 beers the entire time if you are wanting to do it solo. i plan on getting a beer and having extra taster to try other beer my buddies have gotten.

    I will get there around 10:30am. As long as Gunhaver doesn't say," No need to show up early." Then I'll be there the night before. :wink:

    Are you going to Pliny the Younger? I will be in line on the 6th. Hoping for no rain this year.

    oh man don't start this lol

    no rush to get bottles, no bottle sales period (i.e. secret case of DBH sale), I'm sure they don't want us there early. I've already decided to just pass on Morning Delight, so there is literally no reason to be there earlier than 10:50am, which is when I got there last year

    ha, like I said, I walked inside at about 10:50 last year, went right to the Huna bottle line because my wife is sober, and was literally there just to take our 6 bottles home, err, shopping. the ONLY other people inside at that point were on line for Toppling Goliath, and the line was 200 deep

    I'm going to opening gala of SF Beer Week, but will line up for Younger on following Sunday or Monday.

    What are the popular tap lines at Huna day? I've never heard of Morning Delight or Toppling Goliath before. I personally wanted to try Heady Topper, Founders CBS and Big Lushious, Funky Buddha,Three Floyds, and of course Cigar City. Will some of these lines run dry? How about Hunahpu variants?

    if ccb went and saw how fb ran maple bacon porter event, then the lines wont be attrocious. i waited 5 minutes in the busiest part of the day for a beer. they had people taking tickets, ordering the beer, and had "beer backs" constantly pouring where all the people taking orders had to do was turn around and grab a beer..now, this will be a little different at huna day, because we are getting a tasting glass, so the lines could get backed up somewhat...i know at funky budday around 2-3:00, there were more than 2K people there and besides inside the bar, getting a beer was relatively easy. there is going to be phenomenal beer all day long. i dont want to wait 45 minutes to get one of the more timed releases when there will be plenty of amazing beer to be had in shorter lines.

    If they're truly brilliant, here's your tasting glass, fill it with the plastic cup full of pre-filled taster we're going to give you once you hit the head of the line.

    Also, I'm REALLYYYYY hoping for a mini-snifter this year with quality logo, rather than a tiny tumbler with a logo that's half rubbed-off before you even get it home.

    So, I totally forgot about that save-the-dated wedding in Orlando on the 14th at 4:30. Got the invite today. Hope it's cool if I show up late. And drunk.

    First Huna Day, mind numbingly excited.

    I'm flying in from Colorado on either Thursday or Friday, continuing on to DC for work Sunday afternoon. Definitely interested if there is a good bottle share going down Friday / Saturday night? Any suggestions on where to look? Staying close--sharing with @Devman171

    Any Colorado requests? :-)

    There will be a Bottle Share at the Howard Johnson hotel by the pool Friday night. Its stumbling distance from CCB

    I will also be at the Hilton's pool Saturday night... until we get forced back to our rooms. Assuming I do what I did last year. I can't even remember what hotel I went to on Friday night after Peg's. They allowed us to be pretty fucking loud in the lobby. Definitely much louder than the group of people outside Saturday night at the Hilton. I'm still butthurt that they kicked every one out of the pool area. I literally popped a Fou Foune and then 5 minutes later, EVERY ONE GO BACK TO YOUR ROOM. Bunch of party poopers with rooms above the pool. I guess some people go to sleep before 10pm on a Saturday.

    Really wish Postcard Inn was closer to the brewery. Now there's a place where no fucks are given about anyone who has stuff to do in the morning. It's awesome.

    I was thinking of staying at the HoJo, but the reviews from TripAdvisor changed my mind. People said there are unsavory characters, and the place is greasy. Are you staying there?

    I need to see if I can track some down. I'm driving up that way first weekend in February. Will report back if sauce.

    This should be quite doable. I'll be there for the Feb release, and worst case I have a few beauties in the cellar.

    Hilton Bottle Share by the Pool is the BEST from what I've heard :wink:

    I stayed at that HoJo before. The beds are terrible, nothing works and it's HOT. But you will get to see strippers rent rooms with "clients" for an hour.

    Yeah I always stay there for Hunahpu day. Its cheap and literally a 5 min walk from CCB. It's a little greasy but you can party out by the pool and no one ever bothers you. They also have a killer Tai restaurant that's in the hotel lot as well. We had a bunch of people out there partying last year till late and never got shut down. There will be a good amount of people staying thee for the event so the unsavory characters should be at a minimum. lol
