    How many of you are going out today for this release?

    For those of you have gone for the passed releases, does this go quick or should it be available until tomorrow?

    Should have no problem getting it anytime this weekend. Out here now because I couldn't make it any other time this weekend. I'd estimate ~100 people right now.

    Will the 80 case guy show again this year is the question.

    80 cases of MvB or just in general? That's a lot of mules if MvB.

    Lol wow nothing like buying $20,000 worth of beer in a weekend, if that's true.

    It was 80 bottles, not cases, I screwed that up. Yeah, it is still crazy to get your hands on 80 bottles.

    I still haven't been able to make it out there. Hopefully the beer gods will bless me and keep some handy until Monday.

    Don't think it will run out this weekend. Went out today and it was pretty chill. Plenty of bottles left.

    The beer itself, even though no one cares... is incredible this year. More tart than I remember previous batches, cherry pie crust aroma with a zingy popping finish.

    Ahh yes, I remember the days of actually talking about beer. Excited to try it this year. Has always been one of my favs.

    Pretty sure that was Fen Tao batch 1, unless we're referring to another guy.

    This guy was boasting about success on Sunday before bottles sold out. He spent Friday and Saturday seeking people in large groups (bachelorette party, if I remember correctly). He would hand them each a $20 bill and bought them all a beer, allegedly.

    MvB was the kid from OK that had different "disguises" but also shared a picture from an entire group's haul that was staying at Tipping T. So technically he didn't hoard as many bottles as he claimed.
