    Very smooth release today. Got there at 1:30, got to chat with a bunch of new people while waiting, and was in and out within minutes. Great job by those guys.

    Agreed. Got there at 3:20. Already home. Needed a release like this after the horror that has been recent Midwest releases.

    Haha. Wasn't sure what to expect so I wanted to play it safe. I'm on vacation so I had nothing going on.

    were you first in line? haha.

    i did hear a couple people talking inside about how they didn't expect that many people at the release... but the last marius was just like this. only you bought the beer at the bar and could use a card. that took forever.

    I was. Was out there by myself for about 15-20 minutes before a few others started to slowly show up.

    Do these releases typically sell out day of? It sounds like I'll just barely miss the next release, if it's late Feb (i.e. next weekend). Sounds like they're usually on saturdays, and I'll be passing through the area on a Friday :\

    as far as i know the next release has not been announced yet. but they usually only give a couple day's notice when posting on social media.

    they have opened at 3pm on one past release so that most of the line was through when they opened at 4 but it doesn't sound like they're doing that today.
