What an awful quality for a BA!
Ohhh, I found PICTURES of one of the guys that tried thieving our bottles!!!
I appreciate the feedback. That actually makes me feel a lot better about the whole event in a weird way. Thanks for letting me know.
So look out for the guy in the middle, and bottom right of this photo. Beer thieves, caught trying to take our bottles.
"a couple BCS Rares with extras"
I'd say that would add up to almost... $150, no?
At a recent tasting the same thing happened to a bottle of great. We just poured carefully. No jugglers severed.
I really wanted to find a picture of a juggler cut in half, but my 2 second search for "severed juggler" didn't come up with anything.
brewpub suggestion: 1) should always have BA DL and such goodies on tap. waiting 5 hours in the line-cutting cold for BA black sun made me rage. 2) 2 drink limit, no food. in and out.
2 Drink limit I can understand, or at least 1 drink of each on tap limit. There are plenty of amazingly delicious food vendors out there, so the pub shouldn't waste its time cooking and serving food. On DLD it really should be strictly beer sales in the pub.
I thought the amazing bottles getting shared prevented that from happening a lot. Do people really run in and out for 2nds, 3rds, etc of the same beer?
It just snapped from holding it or it got accidentally hit against something? Just curious since I hadn't heard of this happening before this thread.
Not sure I follow you... The way it was first thing at gates open on DLD you could get in, sit down, and order as many drinks as you liked. Could even order them to go. Also food. I was saying it would be best if they limited you to no food and just a few drinks, preferably no more than 1 pour of an BA beer.
O alright nvm then, that clears things up. Yea I agree that's a good idea.
Dark Lord was pretty much what I expected: a drunken 'metal' frat party.
I arrived around 6:00 and met some really awesome people during the pre-open bottle share. Got a couple of trades done. Busted out some Heady Topper, Boulevard Saison-Brett, Melange #3, Supplication, and CW 1414. Best thing I tried was ('06 I think) Fou Foune, and was shocked by how awesome Gilgamesh was. Also met a total douche right at the beginning of the event that was sponging on everyone's beers, scalping his tickets, and then cut to the front of the line as the gates opened. You know, the usual.
When the doors opened, the GF and I ran in got our bottles (including a DL Vanilla), grabbed a couple of the latte's in the 3 Floyds mini-pint glasses, and were out by 10:45. Jumped in the car and drove 5 hours north to the Shorts anniversary party in Bellaire, MI, which was exponentially more fun and under control.
Sad I missed the guest taps, but thrilled I didn't wait for 3 hours for BA Black Sun and the general sloppiness of the event. I'd take the Short's Anniversary party any year.
Funny how you are able to judge the sloppy drunkenness of the party without even staying long enough to see most of it...
Wow, just wow. Both parties in the same day? That is just awesome.
There were people falling over and vomiting before the gates opened at 10am....I can only imagine how it escalated from there considering most of what's been written on this thread.
In that case I'm guessing the event was front-loaded with a few folks who had been drinking all morning, and maybe even late the night before. Those of us who arrived around 9am (fresh from a good night's sleep and planning to make a day of it) didn't have to deal with much in the way of shenanigans until late into the afternoon, and even then (in my experience) it was fairly isolated.
So to the contrary, I thought it was a fantastic beer event, #1 in my book, with a perfect mix of under-control-ness and anything-goes-ness.
The drunks were out of control much earlier this year. Had some drunk ass try to start fights with people at 10:30, because we were standing in lines. He could not understand why we were in line. It was his first year.
Here's the epic beer tasting from the night before Dark Lord Day Here's what I ended up with at the end of it all! Can't believe I didn't lose/drop one of these at all over the weekend.
My memory also sucks, but I believe you are correct (at least about '10 and '09, when there were tickets). However, it still ran out and there was still a long line for it. I foolishly never made waiting in that line early enough to get it a priority. In '08 I was a wide-eyed noob with very little idea what was going on.
Next year people will be bringing 100mL syringes and filter needles in case other bottles start chipping or cracking. That would be some next level shit.
Snapped from opening. While trying to take off the tap the glass just broke. I had never seen it before either, but I do know that's a weak point of a bottle (when in college I opened beer like this pretty often, just to).
Describe what he looked like on here or in a PM my have a clue as to maybe who it might be! Some ass bag was bragging about grabbing some Extras. Just over heard it in conversation with 2 other people!
You should post it so we all know who the assbag is! And when were at beer releases we know who to lookout for!
Literally two posts down, LOL
Ya I saw that after I posted I saw a thief wearing a black tiger ball cap kind of cocked to the side black hair not that guy in the picture though!
I find people that go to beer events to steal other peoples beers and rip others off to be the ones that sooner or later it will all catch up with them. And get what's coming to them. Some people are just plain greedy and assholes
But sooner or later they slip up or get drunk and brag about it and then its all out everywhere! Like the assbag at founders black party laughing about getting a free case of beer in the taproom!
Nice haul MaxSpang.
I was with Jason's crew and can corroborate that we caught these two fucks trying to steal our beer red (wax) handed.
Here's another picture of the beer thief. Dude in the hoodie to the right with the dumbass look on his face:
i dont recall the thief. the dude in the middle, i kept bumping into him hah.
as i read through last years threads of Dark lord to prep myself for this year. this was GREAT. never bumped into a douche, vomiting people, bros, drunken folks. i guess all this shit happened at the front of the line. people shouldn't get turned off so soon.
on the other hand, pretty badass on hitting both breweries.
The two guys on the left of the thief are super awesome dudes. The thief photobombed the picture...
Yeah I have a theory that the only good thing about line-jumpers is it keeps all the d-bags up at the front of the line away from me. I was in the back of the C group cluster-F and almost everyone was very nice and just having a good time.
Yeah it's easily my best haul to date. My wallet is hurting though
My bottle of Cognac BA.
