Last year it was totally silent, 2-bottle-limit release. They did two waves, about a week apart. This year, Toronado sent out an email (which I received) confirming the date. I'm assuming it will be worse with the advance notice.
Toronado SF sent out an email? Seems quite technologically advanced for them. So the date is October 17th, sometime between 11 am and 2 am?

I'm gonna be there. I'm just wondering if I should get there when they open and drink all day or show up in the mid-afternoon
There's not really any precedent for this, but the first time they did this, when it was announced on FB the day of, there were leftovers (I was offered more than my allotment and didn't buy it because I'm a fucking idiot). But with this much lead time? I dunno, could get gnarly.

The other problem is that there won't be any kind of line, so being there early might not be an advantage at all. I definitely got my bottles after people who arrived after me last time, but no one really cared because it was clear we'd all get some. Might not be so congenial this time...

You were wrong. My pants touch my nipples. I am winner nerd in this area.

Also, the CC release will be bad. I imagine it will be like a Txx event... HaveUSeenMyPeepee, harem, crowds....
I will be there early regardless, I figure it'll be bad and I don't want haveuseenmycellar to get all the Cable Car

Was fanboi-ing with Vinnie on Tuesday evening, and he said b6 Beat was probably landing more in the December-January window (so your credit cards will get a short reprieve).
That's weird. Usually when stuff is on the board as Coming Soon, it's only a couple of weeks away. But I do welcome the lessened stress on my bank account.
