    I'm just saying that Kuhnhenn's hasn't been known for accommodating this amount of people and they are well known for not only their unpreparedness, but their "I give no f*cks" attitude.

    Moral of the story: it is what it is. No amount of gintering will change that.

    Likely the same people that complained about Dark Horse being slow. These dudes work at their own pace.

    Ya I loved the people who said "I was in line for 5+ hours to get bottles", uh no one made you stand in line at all.

    +1. Great time with great folks. I got almost nothing for bottles, but couldn't care less. If you take the view that this is a party first and bottle release second, you can have a kickass time.

    I had a great time, I wasn't looking to get my beer and dash so I didnt mind waiting for it.
    I broke down and got a Snifter made, it looks pretty friggen sick.
    I can't wait to pick it up tomorrow or Sunday.

    BBBW was hard to stop drinking.

    For anyone in the know they were filling full plastic cups of DRIPA in the glassblower tent for $6.00. It kicked ass.

    Can't believe BBBW still on tap. Probably my fourth or fifth glass.

    I had 5 pours of BBBW as well....love it!

    Had a great time as always...and loved seeing all the great people that I have met throughout the years at these....plus meeting a few new ones. Kuhnhenn did a great job.

    Now............back to the internet where we can all complain about shitshows and talk smack behind each others avatars!

    Was seriously an awesome time! Had a BBBW, a BA Solar Eclipse, and a 4D..The glass blowing was cool as hell..And just a hint to you people..You can talk down the price of the pre made blown glasses..I got a serious discount on a sweet blown glass mug..

    I did meet someone from here, but I forgot your name..Sorry..Cool dude..And so many great people there having a good time talking with everyone..

    Any pics of the blown glass? Sounds awesome. :)

    Wish I could have made it. But I would have missed out on the BB4D. But news of more bottling in a couple weeks makes me happy. ;)

    I've gone to 3 great parties in the last month or so: Founders 15th, 4 Elf and Solstice. How lucky am I to live within easy driving distance (2, 1-1/2 and 1 hours away) of all three! All a great time but the best, IMHO, was Founders because there was no bottle release.
    1. Founders--CBS and the FBS Allstars
    2. Dark Horse--awesome tap list
    3.Kuhnhenn--great tap list but no BB4D
