    Surprised there isn't one.

    I'll get this started. I'm bored down at work and I have a 6-pack of fresh Zombie Dust. Come by and hang out with me today and drink a Zombie Dust! I'm here until 8. PM me for details.

    Yup! I'm off for the next two days, but I'll be in this weekend. Let me know what you need and I can hold it for you.

    I'll be up north till next week. Two bottles of that would be perfect. I'll shoot you a message when I know I have free time to swing by.

    Went to pig and whiskey last night and failed to see the Short's tent til when I was leaving. So if anyone's going there don't make the same mistake I did.

    haha all the info is mine! actually just was busy at work. but its in the parking lot for loving touch/ WAB

    i dont think they have anything too special on tap. They have Key Lime Pie and Cinnabilly. but a Huma would have been better than the Lagunitas IPAs I had.

    I ended up finding it no thanks to you. Jerk. But yes the Huma was delicious.

    By the time I rolled in they only had like 4 beers on. Also, the line was way long. I opted for the bourbon tent. Was not disappoint.

    Also, thanks Michigan for the Geuze/wine hookup.

    Anyone else try these two yet? I'm only a mile or two away but haven't been there in a good six weeks - once I realized they took their fantastic Berliner and decided to make it into a watered-down Oberon. Just god fucking awful.

    I KNEW the Berliner tasted gross to me. This was the first time I went this year and was upset about the quality of the BW compared to last years.

    I have never been more disappointed in a beer. Seriously. It was so good last year that I looked forward to drinking it all summer and then got that piece of fuck served to me. Ugh.

    Yep. I was a strong advocate for putting 2013 Berliner into cans. I told everyone to go there and try it. Now....Fuck that.

    And it will not be changed back to 2013 form as I have been told that 2013 was too sour. And, apparently, the 2014 version is how Dan Rogers always intended it. Seriously.
