Luckily I got two for group B. Anyone know of any other good beer locations (bars, etc.) in the area? I have non ticket holding friends who want to take the trip.

clopez0,

There's a bar not far away called Beer Geeks with a great selection of beers... You need a ticket to get onto the 3F grounds proper and to buy Dark Lord, and expect long lines, but you're not on their property for a fair portion of the wait.

I lucked into four tickets this year (bought them online, just like everyone else) and yes, they're all accounted for now... looking forward to a great time as always...! I bought group C tickets and will get there plenty early. Look for me, I'll be the guy with the great big grin on his face.


Here... meet the kids...

Nice, see you have some 2008 there Good year. The 2009 wasn't nearly as good.

BTW they're doing local ticket sales today in about an hour if you are close. Pretty cool of them to help out the locals with a few tickets.

Does anyone have extra tickets at a "fair" price?
I struck-out...

I got tix for group A. Was thinking of arriving around 8am. What should I expect as far as wait time for bombers? Do they have it on draft to drink while we wait? Never been obviously. Any previous experienced patron's advice appreciated.

It was cool of them to sell some locally, and yet some dousche from canada is bitching about not having fix, and selling some locally. some people are never happy.

Conpewter,

Thanks for your posting. Actually, about the time you posted your note about the tix going on sale I was in the process of breaking land speed records getting over the 3F, having seen the tweet as I sat down for my morning "constitutional" right around at 8 o'clock. A quick explanation to SWMBO and a pair of pants and I was on my way!

When I got there about 100 people were already lined up (the tweet went out just after 7am I believe, and I'm only about 5 minutes away, as it is), the weather was fantastic, and everyone, as you might guess, was in pretty good spirits.

Managed to pick up the two puppies below and a couple tickets for a couple friends.

They had four barrel-aged brews for purchase: the Behemoth barley wine, and standard, cherry and plum versions of the Alpha Klaus porter.

Kudos to 3F for considering the loyal locals, as many were frozen out during the online sales. Dark Lord Day is always a blast, but it's encouraging to know that these folks are also pretty decent when sober as well.

This photo taken just as the sales started...
