    The distributor accidentally switched the case costs of Love Child #3 and the Coffee Ale. This wasn't corrected until later in the week so anyone who got their delivery by Wednesday got Love Child for half of what it really cost and Coffee for more than twice of its cost. So if anyone found Love Child for $10, they got lucky.

    My father-in-law checked in to the $10 Muncie bottles after work yesterday. Store wised up, it is $20 now, and the owner was sitting in the parking lot listening to Diana Ross doing a mountain of cocaine with the profits.

    That rush to get a pour of persimmon was rather interesting. And fun.

    No extra profits, we all got re-billed for the correct pricing. The distributor still has to make up for the 3 bottles I sold for $10 before they were kind enough to contact me about the price issue.

    Did anyone else see the bottle of Dantalion they brought to the table around 3? I asked just before we left and I was told they took it around and shared it with vendors. No complaints here, but I would have liked to get a taste of that. Haven't seen one of those in forever!

    Yeah they opened it while I was standing there and they just started sharing it with other vendors. Very nice of them.

    No offense your story is completely false.. I bought like 6 from there at 9.99 Thursday and there was only one left after I got mine that afternoon and when I went in Friday around 2pm it was gone. .. He has no more and the whole time it was 9.99$..

    But the friendly package on wheeling still has 20 bottles.. All 19.99 before tax!

    Awesome event. My stomach will hate me for it but I don't care. Caleb's presentation was interesting, particularly his surprisingly candid Q&A session.

    Should be a near complete tap list, including some bottles. I was writing mostly chicken scratch on my leg and some is illegible, so sorry if I messed up any of the names. Links are all BA when possible, Untappd when not.

    Barley Island - Alchemist
    Barley Island - Whose Ear
    Bells - Oarsman
    Bier - Farmgal
    Black Acre - Cuvee de Irvington
    Black Acre - Go Home Raisons. You're Drunk
    Bloomington Brewing - Cranberry Saison (Shame on whoever submitted the brewery, misspelled the name!)
    Boulevard - Love Child No. 3
    Brugge - Pooka
    Brugge - Peony Kriek
    Cantillon - '10 Kriek 100% Lambic
    Cantillon - '10 Fou Foune
    Cantillon - Saint Lamvinus (I think)
    Crown - Blueberry Berliner
    Crown - Bourbon Barrel Aged Cherry Dunkleweizenbock
    Crown - Grand Poobah (BA or not?)
    Crown - Sour Barrel Aged Warlock
    Cutters - General Brown (/ Sour Brown?)
    Cutters - Monon Wheat
    Destihl - St. Dekkera Reserve: Forsaken Barrel Lambic
    Destihl - St. Dekkera Reserve: Framboise (Aged 4.5 years)
    Destihl - St. Dekkera Reserve: Sour Apricot Ale
    Destihl - St. Dekkera Reserve: Sour Strawberry Blonde
    Destihl - St. Dekkera Reserve: Strawberry Blonde & Raspberry
    Flat 12 - Farmageddon
    Flat 12 -Funk o-dile Dundee
    Flat 12 -Jail Bait Brown
    Flat 12 -MUDDER Funker
    Goose Island - '11 Lolita
    Goose Island - Matilda
    Goose Island - Sofie Paradisi
    Mad Anthony - IPA
    Mad Anthony - Ruby Raspberry Wheat
    New Belgium - Lips of Faith: Bier de Mars
    New Belgium - Peach Felix (correct?)
    Perennial - '13 Savant Beersel
    Perennial - White Grape
    Rivertown - Lambic
    Rivertown - Pomegranate Lambic
    Sun King - Brett and the (Family?) Funk
    Sun King - Pink Taco
    Sun King - Stupid Sexy Flanders
    Triton - 500 Sour Monks
    Triton - Pink Ribbon Saison
    Upland - Blackberry Lambic
    Upland - Dantalion
    Upland - Peach Lambic
    Upland - Persimmon
    Upland - Sour Reserve 1 (Poured only for VIP?)
    Upland - Sour Reserve 3

    There were a handful of other stations pouring random bottles...Jolly Pumpkin, Lindemans, Ommegang, Monks Cafe, Petrus, Fantome, more New Belgium etc.

    Extremely easy going event. Not overcrowded, and besides a few bottle openings no crazy lines or mad rushes to get anything. Wish Perennial brought a little more, but talking to Cory about his future barrel aging program is sounding pretty exciting.
    Gotta say, being able to get pours of Blackberry Lambic and SR3 almost the entire day was amazing.

    Was the Cantillon only for the VIP or did I miss it by being 15 minutes late?

    Also, call me crazy, but I didn't like anything I had from Flat12. I poured out everything I tried from them. They tasted very odd to me. Maybe it was all the sours messing with my palate, but they just tasted nasty. With all the hype in this thread, I looked forward to trying them. Ends up, they were very forgettable. Just my opinion (and shared by the group I was with).

    Flat 12 also had their collab with ATG. We Spelt it Wrong. I really liked the Funk o dile. Cutters Sour Brown and the Cuvee from Black Acre I thought were the worst beers I tried.

    You're missing Laughing Dog's offering. For the life of me I couldn't tell how it was pronounced. That, Porch Felix and Upland Cherry Lambic were the best things I had all day.

    Were Sun Kings offerings as bad as they were last year? If so, they probably shouldn't be invited back.

    Edit: Oh, and Bell's should be banned too for bringing only Oarsman 2 years in a row. Come on Caleb, set some standards. However, the overall selection looks much improved.
