    Hi - my friend is on the road heading over to Veil this afternoon - does anyone know if there are still cans available from Tuesday's release?

    Also wouldn't be surprised to see Naissance (13 mo. spontaneouos) to show up on tap sometime next week as well. And I can definitely see some cans being available next Sunday. Don't think everyone will be maxing out their allocations on things like Dirt Nap and Crucial Crucial Aunt Aunt at the Anniversary party.

    "All sold out of cans until Tuesday's release."

    I'll take that as official enough that there's a release, and 2 cans sounds right given how much they're doing for the party.

    I agree, even if people max out they're only pre-selling/allocating 150 cases worth for the party. Last time they brewed those beers (white ferrari, dirt nap, and CCAA specifically) they all had higher yields, somewhere between 180 and 210 cases. So unless they're kegging that much more and only canning enough for the 900 4 pack allotments I bet there is a good amount of those brews going into Sunday. NNFF, Sleeping Forever... might be some but I wouldn't count on much.

    I would guess they probably are kegging a lot more of those beers than they normally do, because of the party and because they've been running low on draft a lot. Plus they make more money on draft sales than they do on can sales, if you look at it strictly on a $/oz basis (I know time is a factor too).

    What's left for today (WED). Not sure the exact amount sold yesterday since The Veil only listed 150-175 cases of each but somewhere in the neighborhood of 239-289 total cases sold.

    And anyone going to the Anniversary Party on Saturday and has a VIP ticket someone just posted that the early pick-up for your allotment is changing to 7am-10am instead of the originally planned 9am-11am.

    Might want to wait for the official update of that info but the guy who posted did show a screenshot of the email he received from Veil. It's not updated on their fb event or website event details yet.

    I think that's a really smart move on their part. As someone who can't make the early pick up I thank anyone who does because it's fewer people trying to grab the allotments in the sessions!

    Really looking forward to this, it feels like they're as organized as they possibly can be. Now just hoping the rain holds off.

    Here are a few updates for this Saturday April 22nd's one year anniversary celebration y'all!

    The VIP early allotment pick-up window has now been moved and extended. It was originally 9-11am. We will now be holding the early allotment pick-ups from 7-10am. Promptly at 10am, even if you are in line, early allotment pick-ups will stop and you must pick up your allotment during your session. Friendly reminder that all tickets are non-transferable, so people who are not on the will-call list cannot pick up your allotment for you. If you purchased two tickets under one name, you must have your guest present to pick-up the two allotments. We added an extra an hour to be able to properly process everyone in A sufficient amount of time. It was also a little too close to the opening of the gates for the first session. This will also help us expedite the check in process so everyone should be able to walk right into the gates and enjoy.

    This event will be rain or shine.
    We will have adequate coverage(in terms of tents) for the outdoor space. We highly suggest you all keep an eye on the weather individually and bring rain gear if need be. We will not have coverage for the lines before the event on the side-walk.

    Also, friendly reminder. If your name is not on the will-call list, you will not be allowed access onto the grounds. If you purchased two tickets under your name, you must be present to get your guest in and you must be one of the attendees. You cannot sign in two guests under your name and then leave. There will be no exceptions and we cannot logistically make changes to the will-call day of. Again, tickets are non-transferable, non-refundable. No exceptions.

    All ticket holders will be guaranteed 1x 6oz pour of each of the following beers with admission to the event grounds:
    ~2016 Bourbon barrel aged Sleeping Forever
    ~2017 Vanilla Sleeping Forever
    ~2017 Sleeping Forever
    ~Never Never Forever Forever
    ~Crucial Crucial Aunt Aunt
    ~whiteferrari
    ~Dirt Nap

    There will be additional 6oz pours available of the following beers with the purchase of a $6(includes tax) general drink ticket:
    ~2017 Vanilla Sleeping Forever
    ~2017 Sleeping Forever
    ~Never Never Forever Forever
    ~Crucial Crucial Aunt Aunt
    ~whiteferrari
    ~Dirt Nap
    ~Unique Friendshipz
    ~#ladyBrozNightOut
    **THIS LIST IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE**

    As always, please post in the discussions section of the event page with any additional questions. It's great to be able to centralization the discussion so it's easily accessible for all attendees. More info here:
    https://www.facebook.com/events/254947644963025/?ti=icl

    We're looking forward to this event and celebrating with y'all. It's going to be awesome!

    I couldn't go tonight so I was a little relieved the raffle wasn't for something super cool like 2016 SF. Those pins do sound pretty great.

    I was expecting them to raffle something more too. Nothing against the Horns but was thinking maybe a sneak peek mix 4 of the cans they have been prepping for the party Saturday.

    For those out-of-towners coming in this weekend and planning to hit multiple breweries here is the RVA Beer Trail Map that lists all the breweries (Vasen has not yet opened). You can pick up a map at the breweries or print it out with the link below. Visit 5 along with getting the map stamped by the brewery and you get free SWAG at your 5th stop. I think most places are out of the t-shirts since those were from several months ago but the new item is a trucker cap.

    I finally got to do the Tasting Trail a couple weekends ago. I know it's been a couple weeks but a lot of places still had shirts and had no issue letting you pick what you wanted. I think it's worth asking if you'd prefer a shirt. It's really cool you can knock out 4 stamps with less than 20 minutes of walking around Scott's Addition.

    Layout for tomorrow.

    For those who have never been to Veil the big white square is the parking lot. The white rectangle below the restrooms on the right is the interior tasting room.The black area is not accessible to attendees.

    The entrance area looks like it could get squirrelly. People waiting to get in meshing with those making to-go purchases, getting draft tickets plus the restroom line. not to mention those who will be lining up for merch and redeeming their scratch off next to it. Not drawn to scale so the big squares probably won't be as congested as it appears.

    Should we expect people to be camping out for the leftovers release tomorrow? If only they were able to post remaining limits tonight but you can certainly understand with how swamped they've been the last week. Hoping there's enough to grab a few varieties!

    Leftovers just posted:

    Decent amount left, but very high limits on everything but the bottles. Cans will probably go quick. Hoping I can get there early enough tomorrow to snag some.

    Wow, I hope they adjust those limits. Not that everyone will buy the limit but enough for max 17 people. 1/2 4pks would do, oh well, such is life.

    Agreed - I won't be able to get there until close to opening, so just hoping I can at least get a bottle of BA sleeping forever and try some of these on tap. If there are any good Samaritans that would like to help me out with some cans, I'd appreciate it though.

    I can't blame them for trying to sell out of the cans as quickly as possible though. I'm sure it was a busy week throwing this party together.

    That vanilla is worth lining up for, but I feel bad for people who got there at 8AM today thinking they were good with 36 vanilla bottles then having that cut to 20. That beer was easily the best for me yesterday and was the only one I paid to get an extra pour of.

    Echoing all the praise for the event - they absolutely killed it. Staff was friendly as always, even with 300 people it really didn't feel that crowded (not sure how session c was will all the rain though). Zero lines for pours, pickup, purchases... just a perfect event all the way around.

    I'm enjoying a vanilla sleeping forever from tap, it is great. But yeah, those bottles are long gone. It looks they still have the barrel aged version, but the line is still wrapping partway around the lot.
