    Dont get too discouraged. Unfortunately there will now always be talk of it now as certain events like KBS blow up and no one can plot the increase in popularity of these things. But doesnt mean it will happen. I think your assumptions on what will keep crowds down are correct. Suprising how many beer drinkers in Chicago Metro dont even know Kuhnhenns. First rule of Kuhnhenn Club.... .

    Not too surprising, considering Kuhnhenn does not distribute to Chicago, unlike Founders and Dark Horse.

    Not sure why we are all so concerned since the world is going to end that day anyways.

    Any word yet on a firm list of beers available for purchase?

    ...and then completely change it Friday morning. The magic of Kuhnhenn.

    http://beeradvocate.com/events/info/57588 shows what the tentative list is, but no word on prices or allocations (do they even do allocations at kuhnhenn events since they seem to be available at the brewery long after the party?)

    They do limits on some of the meads and other stuff like that, but normally the prices alone are enough for people to limit themselves.

    How long was the process between placing an order and having it filled last year?
    I don't mind hanging out, but can't make it an all day affair. :slight_smile:

    It varied, but at least a few hours I believe.

    Thank you, sir. Unfortunately I am worried that I won't be able to make it. IF I get out from work early there is a glimmer of hope. Hope to see y'all there!

    Not quite sure what you are getting at here, but if you are trying to call Knifestyles a DB, he is the farthest thing from it

    Good fun or not, no need to call anyone a DB in a public forum. Keep it going though ;0) I would love for this thread to get locked.

    I disagree, there is lots of need to call people DB in the public BA forums. Should it happen, now that is another matter...

    FYI -- just pulled this from Kuhnhenn facebook page for you meadheads:

    The first three mead releases for Solstice will be Apricot Melomel, "The Bruiser" Pyment, and Candy Apple Pyment.

    There will be more to come...at least three more...but that is the minimum amount of releases.....I am not a "minimum pieces of flair" kind of meadmaker I will only annouce them after I am positive that they are ready.

    Cheers!

    Saw that a while back. None of those match the meads listed on the event page so I guess we are all in for a surprise when we see the final list on Tuesday.

    I love beer surprises! Excited to drink some beer next Friday before I have to go to Jackson to pick up a family member at the train station...hooray! (makes the wait for pick up a nice way to spread out a couple of beers)

    Won't be able to make it unless I find a new job between now and next Friday. Damn gov't subsidized school loans and such :/

    I completely forgot that it was coming up. Now I need to see if I can front-load my hours for the week and then "Go out of town early for a family event" for Friday.

    I mean, I'm okay calling fellow BA'ers family so its not necessary that big of a lie, right?
