I realize this is a shot in the dark, but has anyone been to the events at Moeder Lambic in brussels?
They sell tickets starting Sept 12th. My flight is landing Sep 19th (no, this was not planned, but a serendipitous occurrence). Hoping they dont sell out, but again, I am ignorant of past year ticket sales.
For those interested in attending at Side Project Cellar:
1st timer here. out of the ny, mass, & vt ones - what are the cliff notes on the differences? ie. on site consumption only, bottles to go, baby pours, lining up early enough to need a pillow? still deciding where to go.
Anyone go to Monks last year? I was out of town and couldn't make it. Curious as how the line was and when it started. I'm gonna make the trip this year and want to be at a decent spot.
REALLY bummed NYC's Alewife isn't doing it this year. For anyone unfortunate enough to have attended last year's day in Brooklyn (at Sputyen) you know what an absolute shitshow it was. The first people started lining up at 9am! After arriving at 12pm, I waited in line for an hour+ for the privilege of paying $10 for a half-foam pour of gueuze.
I heard Alewife (in Queens) was way more chill, being in an outer borough and having a lot more space. But Fool's Gold in MANHATTAN?! Great bar but wow, that's gonna be packed. I might just stay home and cry into my Lindeman's.
Or mayyyyybe, you're just saying that, so maybe some of us decide to not go to Fool's Gold. I know that game, buddy
I was really lucky to go last year at the Bier Station in KC, MO. Probably the single greatest beer drinking experience of my life (and I have been fortunate enough to go to GABF in Denver and Octoberfest in Munich). If you are lucky enough to get to one of these locations, you will not be sorry.
Haha, hopefully I'm wrong. But if you doubt the number of lurking beer nerds in that area, I'd direct your attention to the last few BCBS releases at Top Hops (around the corner).
did any of those do bottles? on site only? what size were pours?
$85 for a ticket in Chicago? I'm out, the tap list is shit too.
I'll probably be at Fool's Gold in NYC if anyone else is going..
Is this around the same price for all locations? Also, for those that have been there previous years, does WLV usually bust out any good bottles for sale?
Definitely not, tickets are only $20 for Crooked Stave's event
Side Project is $75, though, so it sounds like it varies. But, my guess (which could definitely be wrong) is that you pay for what you get - the more expensive ones will probably have more offerings, food, etc.
My guess is that WLV will have bottles for sale (who knows how many would be available, though). I can't recall if I read it on their website or if that's just the vibe I got from someone who posted about last year's event.
I would trade the farm for one of these...
Yeah, it definitely varies, that's what I was highlighting - the difference in price. For the record, that $20 at Crooked Stave includes the glass, Zwanze pour, and another Cantillon pour.
Hitting up Chi Town West Lakeview Liquors for Zwanze!!
Yes its pricey, but come on, we all spend $80 easy on a Saturday out drinking and eating. And the ticket does include food. And that list from Cantillion? If it wasn't for zwanze day, I couldn't find these unless I went to Belgium so $80 seems like a freakin steal!
Reply if you're going! Can't wait to meet some fellow Chi Sour Lovers!!
I don't think you're wrong. 90 people have already RSVP'ed to go to Fool's Gold. And you have to consider that plenty of people who have not RSVP'ed will go too. It's gonna be cray.
I was at HF last year for the event, which was ticketed, but it was held outside and everything else was open to the public.
