    I work early in the mornings during the week so I make the most of days off, or try to. plus I have to get up earlier than 11 to be there for the beers. And if there are people lining up, I gotta get up that much earlier. I mean we're talking at least 9am here! ha

    I get up at 6am during the week so that's enough waking up early for me. Yea I don't have any kids so that helps with sleep. I don't know how those of you with kids do it. I salute all of you. Beer.

    Have kids, but don't like sleep. Up at 4AM on weekdays, between 4-5AM on weekends. Every morning, it's just me, the dog and coffee--nice and quiet.

    Will be there around doors open with @dszok ; think @Dogleg will be there around three.

    Might wear a "hello, my name is _____" badge, since I don't know many of you blokes IRL.

    I'm pretty sure the majority of the posters in this thread will be down at the Homestead location for this. Tommyguz should send some of that cupcake love to his brethren down south.

    As mentioned before though, I'm probably not going to get there until early afternoon. Want to try to make it down to Braddock as well. Brew Gentlemen have tapped Albatross, and although I need another taste of it before I can say this, it's already up there as one of my favorite beers in Pittsburgh.

    "Hello. My name is Stinky Puss."

    Whoever gets there first should try and stake out an area and unoffirically designate it as the meetup spot for the Pittsburgh BA'ers.

    my daughter takes after me. Can't sleep much past 5 weekday or weekend. So weekends are some quality bonding time while mommy gets her beauty rest

    All these bastards showing up at 1030...is the rumor about dads with daughters getting bumped to the front of the line true?

    I think I was in line with a few on the allotment ticket day, And I think I saw barfly on my way out the door after I got my ticket.

    That's prime Beer Camp hours. Of the nearly hundred or so transients who cycle in and out of that group, didn't see any of them for GNVP release or the BR4 buy. Would be cool to see any of them there.

    Mike and Gus came with me to BR3. Trying to convince them to come with me for this one. It's a little harder without a guaranteed DD as my wife was pregnant for BR3 and was obligated to drive. I'll probably be returning the favor this time.

    Out of the lot, I'd guess Mike would go--if he's not traveling. And then probably Gus and maybe Justin too. Tell Mike that I'm going (he'll pretend to not care). But he'll ask about my dad, who's not going, but you can insinuate he is, and that'll be the clincher.

    I'll be at Homestead waiting in line before 11 with a few friends. Glad this release will be warmer than the grand opening.

    My kids both sleep through the night since a few weeks old and don't get up until around 830-9 or later.

    If only I could convince the wife to make more than she is making, but she'd have to quit her job to do that, but then we wouldn't have an oven or be able to buy ingredients. (which are damn expensive, so I will never complain about a $3-4 or more cupcake in a boutique shop every again)

    Just want to stress how great @voodoobrewery handles releases. The ultra short notice guarantees that we all had a shot at getting bottles if we want them. Hope they continue this and other breweries that release similar caliber stuff follow suite.

    Going to miss the Saturday release while I'm getting copious amounts of light lager and sunshine.

    Yep, they're the best. I just hope I can slip in and buy a MBP glass while everyone else is fighting to get a Black Magick draft.
