    If you can bring down some RARE, Vanilla, Cherry, Cherry Rye, or Bramble we could do some dealing. Rare and Vanilla mainly.

    I happen to be in Florida for the release (or close to it and decided I'm staying longer) of this but have no idea what to expect. It'll be my first beer release so is it a stand in line and hope to get some bottles or do they release tickets online to buy ahead of time? I've heard multiple things thrown out there and need some guidance

    So that 20 dollar bottle of beer is gonna cost some people how many hundreds? Then the limit is 2 bottles. What happens if you're to late for a wristband? Sounds like a pilgrimage. Is this beer really that good?

    I will be attending for the first time in march, I am wondering if it will be like a black Friday sale, stand in line and hope you get a chance to buy a bottle or do you purchase a ticket and just attend the event!? Cannot wait!!

    Sometimes the events are better then the beer itself.

    That may be but were talkin' beer here. I would look for a trade or somebody to send me one if i could. It's just to much time and expense for 2 bottles of beer for me, but i live in Ca.

    The beer is that good. And the event is epic for great moments in beer culture history. I'm only speaking from experience. Hunahpu induced experience.

    You're both right here. For you to travel across the country for two bottles, it's not worth it. The event though, much like other major releases, is way better than the actual beer. If you saw last years guest list, you'd be amazed. Having never been to Hunahpu's Day, I don't know if they allow bottle shares, but if it's anything like DLD or Darkness Day, you'll try more amazing beers than you could imagine. Is two bottles worth it? No. The two bottles, all the beers on draft, bottle shares, plus the overall experience? You tell me.

    If i traveled 6000 miles for beer, i would have a reservation waiting at the nut house as soon as i got home. I won't drive more than 10-15 miles for suds. Guest list? Who we talkin about? The Stones, Led Zeppelin maybe? It better be somebody that will make me laugh till i piss my pants. There's plenty of draft beer/events that are a whole lot closer to me than Florida. Besides all that, after travel expenses, i'd be broke and wouldn't have enough $ for the beer.:cool:

    You've got me all wrong! I'm not actually trying to convince you to spend the money to go. I'm just saying/agreeing with others that the event is the real draw. The last thing they need is another person in line.

    Grab some great beers you have, drink and enjoy while others are having a great time at Hunahpu's Day and trade for a bottle. You'll think you won for not having to travel across the country and wait in line for it, and they'll think they won for getting to drink all the great guest beers, having a great time, and getting the beers you sent.

    I gotcha bud, just sayin'. The only way anybody could convince me would be to pay my way. I really would like to get my hands on a bottle though, by all accounts it's the shit. I'll just sit here and suffer with my Victory Storm that i just popped. Cheers!:D

    How the hell has this been around for an hour and no one has posted it? For shame!

    Per CCB's FB page:

    HUNAHPU'S DAY!

    We just had a big meeting regarding the details for Hunahpu's Day. We're still hammering a lot of stuff out but we can definitely say it'll be Saturday, March 9th, 2013, and there will definitely be beer to drink.

    If you've been to Hunahpu's Day in the past, what have your thoughts been?

    I have always had a good time although its becoming more and more popular so the crowd can be an issue early on.

    Well with 5000 people showing up last year, myself included in a van with 5 other clowns, I am sure it is going to be extremely crowded again. However, hopefully Mr. Redner certainly pulls through and produces more bottles than last year so they can up the limit and provide for all. I have faith in him, he is awesome.

    There was a thread on this already but not sure where it went. Frankly don't feel like looking for it either.

    No info on how this year will work as of yet. Last year you needed to just show up, get in line for your Huna wristband and then buy beer tickets for the taps.

    Zombie Dust is awesome... and it should be on tap too... or at least if last years Three Floyds/CCB orgy was any indication.
