    Yes, go to the place you ordered. Not the location on the confirmation for pickup.

    First Zwanze Day in the books. That was a lot of fun. Incredibly casual yet well-organized. Tried everything I wanted to try, minus DB Anabasis inside the brewery. Super happy to see DB Generational inside--that was a treat. (PN8 was a bit of a letdown. Too acidic for me.)

    I don't think you're on here, but cheers to Ryan for trading me raffle tickets for pizza.

    Sneaky highlight was Japoolzi, the Monkish/Trillium/Veil Triple NEIPA. That was way too smooth to be a 10.5% triple.

    Best Zwanze Day beer was Thousand Summers Cuvee and it wasn’t close. Had 5 pours and regret not having more before it kicked.

    They had that this year. It was delicious. I had two pours and witnessed the keg kicking. Sad.

    So I walked into SP yesterday and the only one of the celebration bottles left was BBT 21. On one hand I was pumped to have BBT 21 but also a little disappointed I’d missed some of the other brews I hadn’t had. I looked around and the place was packed. I saw an open seat at the long table and asked if I could sit.

    These guys were awesome - they had BBT ‘18, ‘20 and DBA all open. I didn’t even have to ask for a pour. They just immediately grabbed a glass and started pouring me in and said you gotta try this. Later on a table next to us poured us in on BBT ‘19.

    I just thought I’d highlight that we do have a great beer community and a lot of cool, generous people out there. Beer enthusiasts sometimes get labeled as hoarders but this was the opposite of that. What a great environment you guys have at SP. And the beer was awesome!!!

    not that that isn’t a stellar lineup (and one helluva way to get adult onset diabetes) but why not just announce that shit ahead of time like everything else?

    Cause it’s fun and drives interest and excitement and conversation, would be my guess. They know every neckbeard around is going to try to make the trip, might as well have some fun with it.

    I know I’m most likely in the minority in this group… personally coconut is disgusting & when are they gonna stop putting it in almost every stout! Just my 2 cents

    While I don't hate coconut, I prefer coconut characteristics in beer when they're pulled from barrel vanillin and char, moreso than when they're achieved by putting several human sized tea bags of coconut in a tank. That said, there have been some gems, most recently Rev's Deth by Coconut, the base for which isn't typically a fave of mine. But SPs and Shared's have always been too sweet for me. Most recently had DM and mah gawd, that was out of control. Obviously we're talking on a different scale and that was still a good beer in the greater beer world, but I kinda felt bad for whatever the base could have been without all the flavoring additives.

    But we're at the mercy of the beer geeks and neckbeards, and they demand their pastry sludge.

    that’s tough, I’d say it is but only becasue wac hype is too high. I really enjoyed thousand cuvée from the bottle more than on tap. Also I have b3 the weekend before cuvée dropped and enjoy It more than both.

    finishing up Anabasis b6 bottle after having a pour Friday night and Saturday night. i think last night (2nd night) it was at its best but it’s still tasting great today. simply re-capped and stored in the fridge. today’s pour had been sitting out for almost an hour before pouring.

    Only once a year or maybe every 2 will something like this affect me. Buuuut, as someone that years ago used to stand in line for all sorts of things (including consoles waaay back when), I'm always flat out irked when something is said to be available, but it is gone super quick (and quicker than expected). If you're going to have 15 available, I wish they'd just say that. It's not like they don't know - they do. I know why they don't - it draws people in. But it's incredibly frustrating. If I drove 2-5 hours, even if I wasn't far enough in line to get one, at least if I knew that when I arrived (instead of once I got inside), I wouldn't be so grumpy about it, because I knew all the details, and I chose to go even knowing that. At that point, the control is in my hands with full information. -And, I think if I remember correctly, people have talked about times where a bottle that was announced to be available - they only had like 3. :cold_sweat:

    Maybe other beards with necks aren't as frustrated about this type of thing as I am. Just one of those simple things that I feel like would make a lot of people happy, and isn't likely to affect the bottom line much at all.

    i hear thee but they ain’t gonna make it that easy for us lol. i was there at 1:45 and that’s only because i was ahead of schedule (thanks to the nice guy at TWCP-more on that later) but was originally planning on being there at 2:15, which i felt was well enough time given a Monday afternoon. oh well. did end up getting to the the vanilla DB thanks to a generous dude who was looking to try port.

    I don’t plan on having to deal with this again (being in LC and just not nearly as excited about beer as I used to be), but I would cause a scene with no F’s given if I was getting cut. Like as soon as I see cutters I’m just walking up and cutting them even if I’m in the back of the line. It’s crazy to me that people just let this slide if there’s a chance you won’t get what you came for because of cutting.

    Shocking that you would bitch about something that you had nothing to do with. Again.

    I know you either never or rarely come to SP, but if you did you would know it’s usually a case or so of bottles. Always is when it’s a previous release like this.

    There were 4 previously released beers today. If you want your own bottle of each you need to be there early and have a few friends to each get one (it’s one bottle per).

    We happily shared from the 3 bottles (Stagg, Vanilla, and RBBT) we had with people who missed.
