    We are officially a month out and should start seeing breweries/beers pop up shortly. Anyone been hearing anything? Found anything on intrawebs?

    I'm hoping for some BA Abraxas from Perennial. Anybody know if Pipeworks is going this year?

    I talked to the pipeworks rep at the Capones tasting last week and he confirmed that they would be there.

    Revolution's Bean Gene, too, probably.

    And Pipeworks posted a poll via facebook a while back asking about what to bring. The options were (and this list is from most votes to least, going down the list):
    Barrel Aged Cherry Abduction
    Oaked Blood of the Unicorn
    Barrel Aged Sour Smoked Porter
    Oaked Berliner Weisse Peach
    Barrel Aged Hyper Dog
    Oaked Berliner Weisse Raspberry
    Barrel Aged Abduction
    Oaked Berliner Weisse Blueberry
    Barrel Aged Smoked Oat Jones Dog
    Beer

    BA abraxas would blow my mind. I'm in the minority but I think abraxas > hunahpu. Man we're gettin antsy though, it's a month to like one event. I guess DLD threads start in January so I digress.

    I'm just excited that I'm finally retired from football and can make it this year. I've spent the last three mid-Novembers spitefully reading about how tasty this fest was and how the room ends up smelling like 300 overweight dudes farted at once.

    *Side note* Both of my local BA fwends missed out on tix...if anyone has one (or two!) spare afternoon sessions I'd be happy to compensate you for them!

    I know its off topic but Can someone explain the 312 video? I thought it was quasi making fun of the beer but it looks like its filmed in the brewhouse? Are they calling out their own product?

    You're thinking too hard about this... they simply made a silly video to help promote the launch of 312 in cans... it was all in good fun...

    Laffler needs to throw some malort in a fresh barrel for a few months. Close enough.

    Expect Upland, Flat12, and Sun King to bring some good stuff from Indianapolis/Bloomington. Have not heard specifics, but I know all three are having fun with barrels right now.
