    Had Morning Delight at GABF last year and thought Weldwerks Coffee Maple Achromatic was much better beer. I’m at a loss why they can’t make KBBS at a better price with all their resources. Or would that put it in the hands of ‘not a big stout fan but this is ok. 3/5’ ratings. :wink:

    I'm guessing that was B4, which was a below par batch, and probably what KBBS this year was made with unfortunately. B2 was the shit and B5 is really good.

    Get your popcorn ready people, the 24 hour count down is on. I'm expecting 10-15 tweets by TG over the span of the next day hyping the absolute S#!% out of this.

    Money and dignity mean absolutely nothing to me so I got the whole extended family as well as friends & coworkers and homeless people up to speed on what to do tomorrow. We've all been practice clicking and having team strategy meetings for the last month in preparation for the big day. Went out and bought the whole team a few extra smartphones per person so even if we can't get through then hopefully we crash servers so no one else can either. Hoping to pull an even case +1 extra bottle I might try and choke down so I can get that tick. Thoughts and prayers boys!!!

    Thank god these ticket sales are done during the day and not the evening, let alone the evening before or evening of release.

    Hangovers seem to be effective enough at reminding me that I’m bad at his hobby, I don’t need to be rubbing my temples in the morning remembering how cool of an impulse buy $100 of wet waxed glass is.

    Question, if I get a ticket tomorrow is it transferable or do I have to put in my name and be the one to pick it up?

    Almost certainly not going to be transferable

    There’s some stuff you can do with a straw to make this go easier.

    Congrats to those who got through. As expected, it sold out immediately despite the high price. I suspect for TG, $100 for 12oz will be the new norm as this release proved them correct in their assumption that price is barely a deterrent for many die hards.

    Anyone get session 3? I note it's not bolded, so wondering if they're holding that back for some reason...

    Missed it. Saves me a weekend trip, 12 hours in the car, and $140+, but still a little disappointed.

    I guess I have $140 to spend on other coffee beer now...? :grin:

    It wasn't bold, but I still had the option to select it during the initial session selection phase.

    I’m enjoying TG being all over Twitter saying the site never went down.


    Ignore all the screeenshots then.

    Also got one. No bots.... just two browsers and a mobile phone. Spent 20 min in the queue but eventually got through. None of the 8 other people I know got one though....

    That's good to hear as I only got tickets for 17 bottles falling way short of my life goals and budget. I was worried I'd have to spend the rest of my life ducking my pre-traders. At least I only have 2 kneecaps to break amirite?

    Naa, this isn't for me. Buddy had a 11 am conference call. Told him I'd try and help him out. Just being a friend.
