I'd rather have one of their Blegians, but oh well. Maybe someday.

Weekdays don't make much difference when they first start pouring PTY.. But, toward the end.. in about two weeks.. it gets good.. IF it lasts that long. Last year they made something like an extra 30%.. not sure about this year. I think last year SacDan got there quite early and didn't wait too long.. but, remember this is like the opening day for a new Apple iPhone.. Think CULT FOLLOWING. First few days are bananas.. then starts to taper after Superbowl Sunday.

Yeah I'm sure it'll still be crazy. I'll get there a few hours before they open sometime around the 5th or so. How many glasses are you allowed?

as many as you want.. just can't take any out. But remember the ABV.. or they'll carry you out.

I'm hoping first thing on Thurs the 7th isn't too crazy, but I'm sure it won't be as bad as Sat was last year.

Sat last year was the first time I went.. and spent 13 hrs in line. Had it not been for a lot of great people around me.. I'da left. Met people from all over.. including out of the country who planned it as vacation time. Wow!! This is true marketing.. Very limited amount of a great beer. Sold till it's gone.. not to return till the following year.

But, if you're not interested in beautifully balanced hop bombs.. It's not for you.

Day-ohm.

Some friends and I are driving up on a Monday (it's about an hour away from us). Very excited to be part of the spectacle. This talk of long lines, however ... I don't know if Aunt Hedwig* has the patience. Four hours in line, or four hours to brew most of a batch of beer? Choices, choices ... is it really worth it?

Last year we went on the second Saturday and waited about 4 hours to get in and about an hour to get a table once we were in. This year we're going on Thursday to make the wait shorter.
