    This is going to be interesting for you given that you don't believe in jackets.

    Uh oh...
    To reiterate - here's hoping Founders & Bell's are not located in the same corner of the Festival this year.

    Does Dark Horse just pick letters out of a hat to name their specialty beers???

    I'm assuming the first few are single hop variants of crooked tree spelled backwards.

    I wonder what Sc-7 is? Backwards, that would be 7-Cs. So maybe it's made with Citra, Cascade, Columbus, Centennial, Chinook, and a couple other C-hops?!?!

    Nevermind, Lansman answered...thanks!!

    I changed my response, much obliged. Having had the iterations, perhaps my thinking it was sour lead me to believe I was tasting a very weak sour. Will have to give it another shot this time around.

    raspberry wild one is on tap at bells right now, fyi. not sure if it'll still be on on the 23rd, though.

    So, as someone who hasn't lived in Michigan since 2007, what are some of the smaller, more obscure breweries I should be trying stuff from at the fest?

    Wow - this event looks like it will be outstanding.

    Just wondering what kind of bottle sharing happens here? My better half and I are coming up on Saturday morning, so no real chance to do some sharing beforehand, but I'll be bringing some IPAs and DIPAs that are fresh and tasty, and need to be shared.

    Maybe after?

    I just had a wave of panic come over me. This beer fest is serious. I'm actually afraid for my well being.

    I don't know man, if you can taste anything after the Fest (or even stand), it may be tough.

    Bolt Cutter requires three tokens for a 3 OZ pour? Good luck with that.
     
  39. Jose2412

    Jose2412 Initiate (86) Feb 25, 2012 Michigan

    How many tokens do you get with your ticket? Can you buy additional? How much are they?
