    Doubtful, although you may be able to get SOME, which was the case with the last release. I got there at 11:08 and wasn't able to get the full allocation so that should give you an idea. These releases are only going to get more and more popular...

    So what should my play be here? I am thinking about getting to Monkish early enough to be somewhat in the front of the line so I can get cans as soon as they open and then haul ass to Beachwood to get System of a Stout? Will System of a Stout be sold out by then?

    System goes on sale earlier than Monkish and given how the line was for Tovarish, I seriously doubt that anyone who gets Monkish cans will make it down in time to get in a place in line that will get them bottles. It's possible, I mean anything is possible. Just seems like this is one of those tough choices that you have to make. Either pick Betty or Veronica, you can't have them both, Archie.

    I'm going to be attempting to score with Betty and Veronica. I'll let you guys know how it goes on Saturday.

    I will attempt to do that as well. Does anyone know the limit PP or how many bottles of SOAS will be produced?

    Limit on SoaS is 6 bottles. The correct answer on which to go to first is Beachwood, but by all means PLEASE go to Monkish first so the Beachwood line isn't ridiculous (...like the Monkish lines as of late)

    lol....I don't believe so...but...since day one of can release theres been several peeps in the front of the line that brought coolers full of bottles/cans. At your own risk. I wouldn't. But again...up to you.

    Yeah I use to do it all the time at bottle releases but with internet bottle sales that kinda went away but now some breweries have started doin these bottle releases again. I know people hate them but I have fun kickin it with peeps in line and sharing bottles. As long as they dont police it like some started doing before the switch

    What else would we do for 3+ hours while waiting for beer. I doubt anyone is getting belligerent. It is more of a social thing.

    ^ I believe this was already discussed here. If caught by Torrance police, Monkish could lose their license. Not trying to be a party pooper here. But that's the law.

    This is true, BUT, I would think that anyone who values the alcohol license of an establishment should consider not brown bagging it in their parking lot.

    They do have a "No alcohol beyond this point" sign for a reason. While they may not want to be confrontational about it, it does put their day to day business at risk if the neighbors ever decide to complain to and/or get police to roll by. This has happened at plenty other lines at other establishments like Firestone with Liberations and Bottle Logic with Ground State.

    Sometimes it's better to police yourself than to have to be told to do so. In this case, it does put the brewery at various risk that are not needed simply because you and your boys can't just plan a night at one of your houses to have a share.

    every day alive is a day for celebration :grinning:, i'm about ready to go celebrate Friday.

    But yeah, don't drink in the parking lot. Monkish may not even be aware of the legal impact of it that's why they haven't shut it down.

    Kinda ironic in the "Releases" page that they say not to leave trash in the parking lot but nothing about drinking while in line.

    You should check out Garth Ennis' run on Hellblazer when you're done with that. He took over from issue 41-83. It predates Preacher, but it's still good.

    if a brewery can sell it, they'll keep pushing till it no longer sales. Look at Modern Time's pricing for BA monsters park. First release was $20, 2nd release was $24, this third release was $28.
