    Overpriced given that it's same cost as the DIPAs here, but really aromatic and delicious. Worth picking up a 4pk.

    Yes.

    At 8:00, e-mail from Updates@etix.com

    "Thank you for entering for the opportunity to purchase a ticket to our 2019 Mornin' Delight bottle release. We are sorry to inform you that your name was not randomly selected from the many submissions we received. We appreciate your support and excitement about our events so we are sharing with you an exclusive promo code for 10% off of our online store. This code is only active through midnight Sunday, July 14th. Happy shopping and we hope the odds are in your favor next time."

    Pumped about the 10% off though LOL. Never been successful in lottery or whatever method, for a chance to actually try one of the big TG stouts. Been a fan since I had to drive to Wisconsin and buy PseudoSue bottles. Oh well, maybe next time.

    Should be busy packing for Vegas trip (leaving tomorrow). Instead spent much of the day planning road trip. Current plans:

    Friday 3 Sheeps (stay in Sheboygan)
    Saturday Central Waters / Surly (stay in Minneapolis)
    Sunday Toppling Goliath (drive home)

    Planning Illinois / NW Indiana and possibly a trip to Bell's pre/post road trip.

    The Summer of George!!!

    The newest batch of King Sue is much better than the past few.

    If you get no hits here could try posting in the Great Lakes section apparently Indiana is more of a Great Lake state

    Yes. Second round of winning e-mails went out today. Apparently Toppling Goliath decided to re-draw from all the unclaimed tickets.

    My wife got one too and was able to pick her session to match mine. That was a nice surprise.

    God, I wonder if KBBS will be the same as last year. I doubt they have any reason to drop the price, but it would be nice if they included a pour with the purchase of the bottle, at least.

    Why would they when they can charge $20 for a 5 oz pour and the keg still blow in minutes?

    I am betting on a similar format to the last release as well. They might do a mystery tapping again and throw some on tap for those who stick around but I doubt the purchase will come with a pour. The bottles they sell are expensive but the events that I have attended there are very well run and a lot of fun. I will continue to try to get down there when I can for these releases.

    Mornin' Delight and a bunch of varieties of Term-Oil, and then all of the regular stuff like Dragon Fandango and various IPAs. I don't think there was any Assassin on tap (I could be wrong), and definitely no KBBS or SR-71.

    *I take that back. There was an Assassin on tap last year.

    Yea just MD, Term Oil variants, and flagships.....unless you were one of the lizards following Clark and Mike around. Then you may have gotten to try ChainSmoker and Naughty Temple. Those were the only ones I saw them open, there could have been more. Don't count on those being options though as Clark generally doesn't do infinite bottle openings. Usually has to be a stroke of luck you may happen to be close to him at the time.....
