    Anything they will be filling those mini mini growlers of at the party? Would love to grab a couple when I'm there. Not expecting Night Fury fills, of course...

    edit: looks like fills of the regular lineup. Good enough for me...

    Sure, I'd like to try these but not sure I understand the mega hype. Looking at the ratings and reviews they look good, but not great. Would I trade for one locally to try, yeah but not drive half way across the state and stand in line.

    Why would there even be a line? Come on you guys! The man said already that there are plenty of bottles. I don't think there's a need to get there 3 hours early and incite panic amongst everyone else.

    There are only 2000 bottles total combined of the 4 versions. If everyone buys full allotment of 10 bottles, only 200 people walk away with bombers. Even if someone isn't buying 10, there's a chance other people in line will ask them to buy extra and hand them cash. These are my thoughts and with the latest release mania at Oddside for Hipster I expect nothing less.

    I can't leave from work until around 3pm today and don't expect to be able to buy any Trax. I will have a Dark Lord '15 to trade along with some BCBS and others to trade if anyone is interested. PM me please.

    There are 2200 bottles which is almost triple the amount of last time..The limit is still the same per variant as it always has been..Last year it lasted till after 5pm...they are not allowing people who did not get their full allotment to get back in line as they did last year...Are there going to be douche bags? totally! this community is now full of them...With that said, You never know man..Just hope everything goes smooth.

    Hard to say. I got here about 15 mins ago and I'd guess 150 is a high side estimate for the mine right now.

    Realistically it's probably closer to between 100-120.

    Apparently lots of assholes joining their friends in line as I was told I was ~170 and am about to get shut out.

    Damn with this new breed of "advocates" joining the ranks it is just a matter of time before one of these events ends in tragedy. These damn bottle release events for me just aren't worth the effort it takes to acquire them and even those poor folks that make a serious effort by arriving early seem to get screwed by all the entitled line jumpers. Bad times for craft when the assholes seem to outnumber the decent folk.

    Definitely a pretty disappointing experience. No line policing, there were quite a few mules I saw, and the 11 o'clock line for mug club members only was a line for every one and they were allowing you to sign up in line.

    Why don't people speak up when they see others cut. You can do it respectfully, just address it the second you see it happen. I've done it plenty of times, never ended up in a fight, just get to see the cutters leave or go to the back of the line. Stop being so passive people.

    When you arrive at a non-insane time it's impossible to know who has already been there and not when people are "re-joining" the line.

    Tickets or security are necessary.

    That's why EVERYONE needs to do their part, I always have pretty good tabs on the 10-20 in front of me anytime im in a line, you just have to hope all the people in front of you are doing the same thing.

    So... What happened? More bottles, yet already gone. I remember seeing a guy last Feast walk in at around 3:30 and get bottles. Did that many people cut? I was ~220 and got bottles at about 2-2:30. Something's not adding up here.

    Calling out line cutters is not being an asshole, you are pretty much a savior.

    Much larger limit. 10/pp. Still a shit ton of cutters. ~170-180 and shut out.
