    Up until two year ago, BUG was a pretty stellar event. Everyone bought some pretty high stakes beers, and the brewers hung out and made the event very special. With the introduction of the VIP ticket, a lot of the harder-to-find beers tapped out before the entry of the general public. People complained about it, but everyone understood some of the dynamics. If the VIPs paid more, it helped raise more funds without raising the general admission ticket. Then last year, they raised the general admission ticket to 60 bucks. Tack on the fact that breweries began bringing their more mundane beers (saving their hard to find beers for events where they headlined at), and the mood turn pretty sour against BUG. In defense, event "organizer" Justin Maynard began crowing that the fact that BUG sold out so quickly was proof that the price was right for the product. Well, lo and behold after last year's shit storm, the tickets never sold out for this year. And yet, Maynard kept talking shit about how we didn't know what we were talking about when we questioned the slide in quality with the uptick in price. So, I personally find this all rather gratifying.

    The new Fulton Goose Pub can get fucked right in the pussy. Opening Friday of CCBW and they have nothing but their year round offerings available. I walked in and saw the list, wondered aloud if I had walked into a Gino's East and walked out.

    None of this is sustainable. There isn't a stout black enough to match the eternal darkness of infinite nothingness we are all on a collision course with.

    Drink your IPAs.
    Raise your children to hate you.
    Die alone. Forgotten.
    No Gods.
    No Future.
    The Sun devours the Earth.
    Vanish with us.

    In heaven there is no beer
    That's why we drink it here
    And when we're gone from here
    Our friends will be drinking all our beer!

    IIRC, the Rev is related to Mega's wife. Probably why he won't just come home.

    Wait in a line around the corner and down the street for an IPA? You're a better man than me. No idea why this release gets crazier every year when it's all over the place in kegs and sees some distro.

    It's probably the best IL IPA doe.

    Eh, my friend that lives down the street and goes to every release there said that I should be fine casually strolling by after work around 4p. Said that the crazy lines only happen for the barrel aged stouts.

    Lucky fucker (and my friend) either "work from home" or have every other Friday off.

    Absolutely not true. Drove by last year around 3:30 and there were at least 250 fuckers still in line. It went around the corner and a good deal down the block.

    F.A.G.S. gets caught by the filter but not fagmo.

    I didn't do a great job at explaining what my friend said. He simply said that it shouldn't be something that sells out before closing on Friday night.

    With all of this in mind, I won't be rushing over.

    That I'm not sure of. I think it lasted until 5ish last year and they definitely had limits though no clue what they were.
