    Yah, typically Monkish will do 3x 4-packs and they generally produce about 160-170 cases on a full run.

    There have been some exceptions to the allotments.

    Hey all,

    Let's put this to rest. Drinking outside the parameters of our licensed establishment is illegal. If you feel it necessary to drink in line, you will be removed and unable to purchase. In fact you will be blacklisted period. Risking the license of our business not only jeopardizes our future, but also jeopardizes our employees livelyhoods.

    Cheers,

    The Marketing Director who reads this forum everyday.

    Now this is how it should be done. Not like the other guys on the other side. Nothing. Thank you Vito.

    I believe last time it was shortly after midnight.

    If you're asking what time you need to get in line to be guaranteed cans: some will say opening, but with the growing hype nobody knows for sure. This is really only their second hazy/hype-filled release.

    Usually someone will take a picture of the line and post it to Instagram(just search #noble or something) if it starts getting long. I'll usually check Instagram when I wake up. If there's a long line, I skip the release because I'm impatient.
    Noble has only done one can release and I believe people were able to get something if they showed up at opening (not positive on this but the info is somewhere in the thread).

    Thanks for clarifying, you guys are awesome.

    Legally speaking though, doesn't telling the police officer, "I do as the romans do" negate any chance of prosecution? Asking for a friend.

    Asked this question a few days ago, and from what I gathered here and other places, I plan to show up around 10 and am confident that I'll get cans. I also saw someone from Noble chime in that allotments may be smaller this time to allow for more people to get cans. Long story short, I'll be there around 10 and feel good about getting a full allotment.

    24k was first hazy can, but there was also "Dank you for being a friend" & "Nelson she wrote" released last year...

    Both of which had a good amount of turn out. Even if Nelson She Wrote had a little bit of its thunder taken away when Monkish released a can release an hour or so before it went on sale.

    I'm no defense attorney, but I have been drinking and I can tell you that this is a water tight defense. And if that doesn't work, just smile and wink at the police officer and tell him "but it's Saturday!". The officer will most likely then high five you and move right along.

    Officer: Is that an open container? Sir, you are aware I'm gonna have to write you a ticket for drinking in public.

    Dude: uh-huh, cheers, man.

    Would've been more, but then you kicked out some number and I was like sure 140 sounds good. We will just drink the rest...

    Was there a bunch of line cutting for 24k? People getting an allotment and then jumping back in with their "buds" and buying more?

    Is Noble planning on doing anything to combat degenerate behavior this weekend?
     
  18. Vito_Goes_West

    Vito_Goes_West Initiate (46) Aug 31, 2016 California

    Haha "combat degenerate behavior"...Maybe I'll do wristbands. The last thing I want to spend my time doing during these crazy ass releases is being a damn hall monitor.

    Right because they said drinking outside was cool right? I wouldn't be surprised that's one of the major reasons they went to weekday releases.

    Definitely agree, people should police each other but we know that rarely happens at these releases. Appreciate the response, and looking forward to the release this weekend.

    Not sure about people getting back in line, but there were a lot of people showing up and getting in with friends just before they got served. Which sucks for the people who actually waited the 1.5+ hours. I was a little in front of the cutoff, but I'd hate to be the guy ~50 people back who got to the door just as they ran out, when probably 50-100 more honest, hardworking line waiters should have walked away with some beer that day had it not been for this special type of subhuman.

    Wish I'd gotten a full allotment of Good Googly Moogly the other day. Good stuff. I'm sure there's more good stuff to come, though.

    Also... lines, kids, pot, sandals, beards, haze, bottle shares, line cutting, chairs, bros, wahh, wahh, wahh,;

    At the last release, i got there sometime after lunch just to try it on draft. there still was about 20 people in line so i got in and the 15th guy was the last one to get cans. Luckily saw a bunch of friends that had extras and gave me some.

    If this happens, please wear the gold MC hammer pants from your costume wardrobe and shimmy along the line.

    Wonder if the cold wet weather will have any impact on the turnout ? With the max at two four packs I'm curious, probably not though.

    Along with their camping chairs, they'll bust out the E-Z up Canopy's lined up looking like a black friday sale.

    Anyone got an estimate of the line? I was planning to be there at 10 but no earlier. Enough for 420 allocations...

    Searched #doubleplatinum on IG and found a line pic. Creeping on the comments revealed about 100 in line about 5 minutes ago. Paaaasssss

    if you're not here now, and you're not one of the majority of people getting in line with friends, there's probably no chance. Line's long, and getting fatter by the minute

    Well crap. I can't leave until 10:00. So if I don't get there until 10:30 I'm probably SOL?

    seems like it. I'm not even sure I'll make the cut. thought I was maybe 200 back when I got here, but I swear 100 people have walked past towards the front in 40 minutes. A guy just walked down announcing they'd be doing wristbands at 10:30. Well that's super helpful....

    Sucks, should of passed wristbands earlier or now to avoid more line cutters.
