    I assume everyone knows, but all the tickets for assasin eve in Decorah are on sale.

    Brewery will be open to the general public all day, you don't need a ticket to visit. There will be a "barrel-aged beer section" though for ticket holders only during your session time.

    Each location’s Facebook page has details. Some send you to ticket sites like Eventbrite, some you just call and make a payment. I can’t guarantee they are all still available, but they were as of yesterday. I will be having lots of Assassin. :-)

    Has there been any discussion from the brewery, or just conjecture here at least, of what Term Oil is, particularly compared to Assassin, or just generally as to the recipe variation? ABV seems to be right around the same at least.

    I've had Term Oil and Assassin in drastically different venues drastically different times of the year, but they seem very comparable to each other.

    Either way, I really enjoyed it.

    PS sorry I posted here just realized there wasn't a base Toppling Goliath thread...

    Any info or link for more info on how they're operating that weekend? I know they've hosted shares in the past but I can find anything on them. I know @DecorahNM used to work there and has helped out for events like this even after leaving.

    Was wondering about this as well - got a ticket for the Assassin draft Friday night. Would be dope if they hosted a share on Saturday, perhaps after all the Assassin sessions are over in the afternoon.

    I just got an email saying that Dixie’s has refunded my ticket price. Apparently they are not doing a ticketed event anymore. This was by far the event I was looking forward to the most, this really sucks.

    Question for the group. I have two tickets for my wife and I for session 4, but we'll need to have our 19 month old with us (wife won't be drinking). Will we be able to get our bottles and hang out at the taproom with the little one for the session? Or will it be too crowded?

    You should be fine....its a massive space with 2 levels.....will be hard to find quiet area though if they need to take a nap. #NoCrabbyKids ......hahaha....and if the weather keeps up it might be in the 60's by that time and the patio space could be open as well....

    Just made reservations at the Country Inn for Saturday night and they still have a couple rooms left. Not sure about Friday though.

    Event infor for Assassin Eve is on their FB page. I don’t see any info about the Saturday share, but for sure they’ve done it in the past.

    I'm assuming they've got their page set to private then since the only one I can find looks generic and contains reviews from other people:
    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Courtyard-Cellar/1059750574067605

    Mind sharing any details from there for those of us that still holding out on Mr. Zuckerberg?

    yeah I saw the Saturday rooms, thanks... No dice for Friday though. Think I am going to stay in Des Moines on Friday then cruise in early on Saturday. Still going to be a bit chilly, but I am going to bring a tent for Saturday night. Save the hotel cash for beer :slight_smile:

    Did anyone else make a reservation with Mabes for Assassin eve over the phone? I called and they took my info, including CC info but I didn’t see the charge hit. Anyone else have this experience? In general, I don’t like giving CC info over the phone, but Assassin...

    I did that for Assassin 2018 release, and everything worked out. I don’t know when they charged but my name was on their list (which they highlighted) once I got there and got my Assassin pour. If you’re concerned, just don’t give them your debit card. Credit card is easier to dispute suspicious charges and it’s not going to create havoc with your personal bank account.

    We brought our kid to the MD release with no problem. My wife's friend was there as well with her kid in a stroller. No issues at all.

    For those that bought the Assassin tickets in-person at the taproom, does your ticket have 'Purchased By: (your name)' only or does it have 'Purchased by: (your name)' and 'Ticket holder: (your name)'?

    Late on the reply but Friday at C&C $23 gets you 5oz pours of Assassin, King Sue, and Mosaic pseudo sue plus a snifter. Any remaining will be sold Saturday and at the bottom it states “please no bottle sharing”, assuming they mean both days.

    ebe2023 Initiate (49) Apr 19, 2016 Illinois

    Update to my previous post. C&C just updated and said there will be a share on Saturday. Starts at 11am and it’s 10bucks for a wristband to participate and includes a glass.

    Thank you for this, just what I was hoping for.

    If anyone knows of any other shares going down and is open to random internet outsides joining, let me know. That's one of the biggest reasons my buddy has been wanting to make this trip.

    It only says "Purchased by:" which was whatever name you put in the credit card field. We used my credit card twice, but we called etix right after that and they changed the name.

    you will be just fine, we will be there with our 16 month old and 8 year old. For KBBS last year, our daughter was 13 months and we brought her with and sat at a table with a couple that had four kids with them. since the crowds aren't very rowdy during the day, its not a bad environment for kids IMO.

    I'm staying at the Super 8 on Friday and Saturday. I have some barrel aged beers from Iowa and would be interested in trading for any stouts, sours or ipas that I cant get in Iowa. Message me and we can work something out. I'll also bring some stuff to crack open if they have a bottle share in the lobby.

    Will also plan on a good size share at Super 8 Saturday. I'm still looking for my bottle opener from last Assassin at Super 8.
