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.
The Sun devours the Earth.
Vanish with us.
Trade you a Pliny for a Fou' Foune?
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!
Why isn't this tagged yet?

What was the deal with someone on the SATCH or the Wiss dating his daughter?
He died, actually.
Who? The Rev, or the dude banging his daughter?
Believe it or not, he was an avid skier. He actually had a heart attack while on the slopes and went the route of Sonny Bono.
IIRC, the Rev is related to Mega's wife. Probably why he won't just come home.
Mega got married?
Franklin Tap on 5/23:
Most of that goes on at 11am on the 19th. Then they'll just rotate the rest in as the first group kicks over the following week.
They're doing this again on 5/25.
Gonna go over to Half Acre on Friday for Galactic Double Daisy Cutter bottle release haps.
Tribes doing its KBS brunch this Saturday.... Shit was the notes last year, but can't find anyone to go this time around. +1 is working.
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.
Couldn't remember if I called them homos, f@gs, fagmos, dicklovers, queers or cock collectors.
F.A.G.S. gets caught by the filter but not fagmo.
Sounds good, but that's the day I'm going to BrickStone between little league and graduation haps.
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.
4 bomber limit on Friday, plus growlers.
That sounds right. Growlers will be gone immediately no doubt.
When was the last time they canned this? 2012?
I'd go, but it appears you may have the days mixed up.
