    I really hope it settles down a bit by the time I get there later this afternoon, but if not I'll still wait to get in

    Apparently not. Getting mixed opinions from people in line.

    the separate line is for BBT pickups. to-go and on-site / draft are the same.

    Shock. Dirtbags left piles of bottles out on pic tables, barrels, ground.

    Just ban it already.

    the shocking part is who’s pregaming before drinking 15% stouts?

    At MV release people were cleaning up and left a spotless parking lot at the brewery. No need to ban sharing, just need more trash cans.

    So when there aren't enough trash cans the appropriate action is to just leave bottles strewn about for someone else to clean up? Makes sense.

    I completely agree even though we’re probably shitting on FIBs here.

    And I posted what I did when I walked by a picnic table full...right next to a 1/3 empty trash can. Clearly had lined them up / left them out on purpose to show the dumb beers they drank before going in to pound 15% ones.

    I’m curious — is anyone who does this (i.e. litters) willing to just admit to it here and explain why you didn’t feel it your responsibility to find a trash can.

    Also essentially no line at brewery so whoever it was who said the right move was to wait for the first wave to disperse wins.

    I approached the group that was responsible for the bottles on the table to inquire about there being a separate line for sunset bottles vs just trying to drink. They were standoffish and rude. Class A shit lords. I’m sure they got plenty of pictures of their trash that nobody gives AF about.

    Will be at The Cellar tomorrow at open. If anyone is looking to split a bottle of BBT and/or D13, just bug me when there. I’ll be there solo, wearing grey Trillium cap.

    Walked in around 3:30, only a few people in front of me to order, was able to secure a table within 30 minutes. My group bought several bottles and the awesome people next to us gave us all of their unfinished ones when they left, which included an almost full double barrel port-thank you and may good beer karma come in your future whoever you are!

    After going Tuesday and yesterday I can say there is no reason to show up early and wait in line

    Yea, I was shocked it was so packed at both places at open since they’ve said there are no surprises. If you showed up mid afternoon or later it was money.

    Damn it! So I guess getting in line early is what it's going to take to get a sunset. Were they still two per person today?

    They just tweeted that they're out at both locations now. Hopefully that kills some of that line...

    Yesterday was only slow at the brewery because it was only over the bar. Makes sense they went through it faster
    today if they did it at both lines. The BBT pick-up line was non-existent at the brewery yesterday, but took about an hour and a half to get through the on-site line (arrived just before open)

    Yeah, sold out much faster today. Got in line early and thought both lines would be fine but sold out just before we got to the front. Definitely going with the BBT line tomorrow.

    Sunsets sold out in about an hour at The Cellar. Happy to have been able to grab the couple.

    Overall, today was great. Was packed, but can’t complain about something that was expected with all things considered. BBT b3 is... well, special. Building that much complexity into the flavor without any adjuncts is really a big achievement and extremely impressive. D13 is what I hope all vanilla barrel aged stouts would taste like. It’s sweet vanilla, chocolate fudge, yet also delicate at the same time. Thoroughly enjoyed both, and was a good time sharing beers with Chris and Doug (you know who you are).

    Hope to be back again next year this time (or maybe even sooner).

    Really well said, man. I’ll just add that the staff and crowd management was perfection, Sunsets was fantastic, and @Vitacca is a great dude. I think I would head to StL next year regardless of whether or not I land a BBT. The on-site and to-go were worth the trip for me.

    Where is sunsets to go being sold today at the brewery, out the back alongside bbt bottle pick ups or over the counter inside alongside on site stuff? Thanks!

    I can assure you that we are doing both places. I am inside staring at the over the bar cases and I helped move the out of the garage cases. So both spots.

    I was one of the first ones in like today to pick up my BBT from the back of the brewery. I was surprised to see they only had 5 cases of sunsets back there and it was only 1pp..
