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 $10 before they were kind enough to contact me about the price issue.
thats a good enough reason for me, cheers!
Well, I need more pomegranate lambic.
This festival was dope. That is all.
totally agree...really glad we drove down from WI for this--awesome beers and a nice, chill atmosphere
i was standing right in front of the table when they brought that bottle out...got the first pour and one for the wife....was in intense experience for sure!!
Pomegranate Lambic was soooo good....think I had like 4 pours of it....I think i saw Mordormongo face down in a pitcher of it....
it was quite fantastic to just be able to amble up to the table and get as many pours of sour reserve as my heart desired
Did anyone else see the bottle of Dantalion they brought to the table around 3? I asked just before we left and I was told they took it around and shared it with vendors. No complaints here, but I would have liked to get a taste of that. Haven't seen one of those in forever!
Yeah they opened it while I was standing there and they just started sharing it with other vendors. Very nice of them.
Wheeling. Bubba's/Muncie Liquors.
No offense your story is completely false.. I bought like 6 from there at 9.99 Thursday and there was only one left after I got mine that afternoon and when I went in Friday around 2pm it was gone. .. He has no more and the whole time it was 9.99$..
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.
Sun King is open until 5 on Saturdays. Used to only be open until 4 but added an hour last summer.
Yet they are closed on Sundays...
Guess My triton alarm isn't going off. Missed both of these
Is Sun King supposed to be open on Sunday? It's not a bar or brewpub.

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.
VIP got batch 2 sour Reserve
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).
Did you ask her for the special bottle she brought that was under the table?
the guy at the random beer table was pulling out cantillons every once in a while--i was there when he opened a st lamvinus, but missed out on fou foune by a few minutes
The Starlight table? Yeah, passed by there several times. Definitely missed it.
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.
I was shocked by how good that Felix was....didn't expect that one at all.
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.
And its not bottled, or even distributed. Festival beer only.
I liked Stupid Sexy Flanders and Brett and the Family Funk (100% Brett Wee Mac). Pink Taco was alright, my buddy thought it tasted buttery, I didnt get that though.
He didn't have anything to do with brewery inquiries/invitations. But he had everything to do with Sour Reserve Batch 3...and I thank him.
My best were the SR3, Perennial's White Grape, the DeStihl stuff (4.5 year old barrel of framboise especially), and the Rivertown Pomegranate (most surprising beer of the day). By far the worst for me was Triton's Sour Monks...it tasted like a quad with mint shampoo mixed in. I felt like the overall quality of the beers offered was a lot higher this year than last, but there were some duds. I also really preferred the food setup last year, though this was better for "pairings" I guess. By the end of the day when I was getting hungry, some of the cheeses and fruits were getting kinda gross. At the end of the day, I gotta say I had a pretty good time and I didn't have an assplosion or otherwise brownout a pant leg, so any complaints are minimal.
As of 5:23 pm Friday, the Wheeling location of Muncie Liquors still had bottles, they were $20, and though you live in Muncie, you seem confused about the geography. You may have purchased $10 bottles at the Friendly Package on Jackson, you may have purchased them at the Muncie Liquors on Wheeling, but the fucking FACTS I have at my disposal are the Wheeling store of MUNCIE LIQUORS still had bottles available Friday evening and the cost was $20. Unless my father-in-law is lying, clinging tightly to his story for reasons unrelated to Beer Advocate tomfoolery (This could bring shame on an entire family and cause him to toil in eternal hellfire, right? Being a fucking liar?). It seems the whole thing was reasonably explained as distributor error elsewhere. Why am I even arguing or even commenting? I asked him to stop and check. He did. He relayed information. I just asked him again, confirmed the details above, end of story.
Anytime you preface something with "no offense," realize the person in question is probably going to be offended or at least mildly irritated with the bullshit that follows those words. No offense. Don't tell me it's raining when you're pissing down my neck.
At least put some peaches or something into the Oarsman if it's going to be your only large offering.
Furiously Teabagged Oarsman. Louie wants to dip his balls in it!
San Diego means a whales vagina... Agree to disagree
We killed it at around 4:30. Most places ran out of beer long before the end.
The fact that so many places ran out early was disappointing. Perennial was out by 3ish, I think. Surely they'd been informed how many tickets had been sold, right? Bring enough beer for the event or don't even bother. I totally understand the popular or timed beers running out due to limited quantities but to have everything packed in by 4:00 is fucking amateur, man. And the running-outs wasn't necessarily reflective of quality, either. Upland was still pouring Sour Reserve up to 5:00 and DeStihl had plenty of beer left. Pro gear/pro attitude.
I believe we were out of there by 3pm, so we missed some of the later pours, but that was probably the best atmosphere I've been in for a beer festival.
I got buttery smell from Flanders and Pink Taco, but not a buttery taste. It was odd
Veronica looked more bored at that table than all the nights Jughead opted to finish himself off with Asian teen pr0n instead of her hot box combined.
