    Started about 11pm Friday and there were still bottles being popped and shared up until the brewpub opened at 10am (I think 10)

    It obviously slowed down a great deal in the morning hours though.

    So if I were to get there around 6am there would still be some action going on? At that point would anyone still be able to appreciate a DDG or BADL?

    There will be some, depending on who is alive a conscious from the previous night.

    You should probably give those 2 bottle to me Friday night. Ill make sure they are appreciated ;)

    Well, looks like I will bring at least one of those bottles and pass them out as either good night, or good morning beers!

    When do people start showing up for this? The night before? Do you camp out or what?

    I was thinking of going that morning, but now I'm considering the night before.

    People started lining up the night before when it was fucking freezing out. The line may have already started for this one.

    I got to the first release at 5:30AM and was #85 out of 87. I know a dozen or so folks behind me were able to get full allotments but I wouldn't expect that to always be the case.

    I'd be perfectly fine with 12 oz bottles versus the 22 oz bombers. I'd rather have a 2-3/person limit in smaller bottles than a 1/person limit in larger bottles.

    I am thinking that the BBVD and Gran Met variations will be in the larger format like last year. The Tenacious Wee and K13 may be in the smaller format.

    I just want AB Grande Negro to be in 12oz format. I'd rather have 2-3 of those then one bomber for sure. Same with the K13. The others I'd be fine with bombers. Oh, and Stakem's home brews are the shit.

    I really need to make it out to this. It sounds legendary and it would be my first brewery only release event.

    So, how many people turn out for this? I mean there are ~107 plus people who say they are going on fb (I am a maybe). None of my friends really enjoy beer and I really don't want to drive all the way there by myself. I think I have one friend that would go, but he would be bored for hours (doesn't drink) waiting in line.

    I'm making the trip up. Probably getting there around 4am. I guess I'll bring a few bottles in case some of you are still in party mode.

    Damn, I was wondering if anyone was doing this. It's so tempting but so much time on the road. Just really want that K13.

    I'm from buffalo originally, so it helps a bit to stay there thurs/sat night. Still about 24 hrs of driving in a 4 day period.
