    Number 89 was the last to get BA4D bottles. Waaaaaaay less than last year.

    They're on number 100 at 2:32pm.

    Hmm, i assume that's why they put a 1/2 case limit this year....that blows.

    Everyone in line with a prime number could say the secret password and be able to buy from James cellared Rasp Eis, and older meads.

    Bottle limits were messed up for BA 4D & the meads.

    Bourbon barrel barleywine was super tasty though.

    What are the results? Are people willing to put up with a topless weirdo just for some BBBW? I love the social experiment you put on here

    I feel bad for the warehouse and front of house guys, they have thousands of bottles to pull for a clientele which is drunk, demanding, and with supplies running out, butt hurt. Methinks they misunderestimated the demand.

    If people are legitimately complaining about Kuhnhenn taking too long, it's quite obvious they're from out of town.

    I can't complain to get anything since I'm out of town for Christmas but holy shiz! My friend showed up early (10 I think), got 153 in line or something, and was shut out from BB4d and quite a few pyments / meads that we wanted. I feel bad for people travelling in from out of town that didn't show up right when they opened but I'm sure everyone that's there is having a kick ass time. Cheers everyone!

    Great event, despite missing out on the bba4d, the several glasses of BBBW more than made up for it. Cheers!

    When I got here at 4:30 and was number 320-something, there were only 2 pyments off the list, everything else was available.

    Must have been 2 of the ones I was ISO. Candy apple and choc rasp I think... Also got shut out of the American Imperial Stout I think. Did pick up a bottle of 2011 bb4d so at least I'll get to try it :)

    Great event, they were a little slow getting through the orders but at least you got to relax and drink great beer while you waited. Those smoked ham sandwiches were delicious. I heard they would release more BB4D in a couple weeks, I guess we will find out if that is true or not.
