    "Your" as in "your school." Have no fucking clue who sycked teaches, and I don't think he does on a daily basis given his sub role.

    Sadly, 10:30 isn't all that late. Not even sure why they show up at that point, though.

    I'll probably go right when it starts at 4:00. If it sucks, I'll relocate to the new patio behind St. Lou's.

    No prices listed for the food and the revolution offerings are nothing special, unless they're holding back word on it. If I still lived nearby, maybe.

    Deth is going to be there, so I assume the Rev beers will be on point. Worst case scenario, I've never had Ghost Ride.

    I just saw the cover photo on FB advertising $4 Fist City and Something Crazy. Figured that they had to have something special, but...

    Official page for this event listed regular BCBS and 3 variants. This afternoon, some dude asked them on FB what's in a flight and how much it costs. They gave a shady answer listing only rye, Juliet, and OMG. No price. He politely asked again, and they refused to answer. Ah, shady bait and switch haps!

    Or maybe they're just fucking retarded. Last time I was there, they had like every single Rev BA beer, but they only sold pints. I asked the manager whether they offered flights, and he was like, "What's a fight?" As much as I would like to drink 5 pints of BA goodness, I have to drive home, motherfucker.

    Remaining events:
    5/25 - KBS & Double Daisy at Skylark - Firestone Walker at Haymarket
    5/29 - Brewers Brunch at Haymarket - Baderbrau Block Party
    Be there, or be gay gentlemen.

    Slammed 3 high gravity beers in 40 mins and then cheesesbiked my way to pick up my kids before walking home in the pouring rain.
    Number of rounds bought by Deuce: 1 . . . but my beer randomly wasn't included.

    I've been asking around trying to find out why Marz is the only South Side brewery not included on the South Side Craft Beer Fest list. EdMar says they were never invited. Justin Fucktard says they never signed up. Hard to RSVP "yes" if you're not invited, Fucktard!

    But in his defense, why should Fucktard bother to invite the people most responsible for the presence of craft beer on the South Side? More room for non-South Side breweries!

    And I asked my friend at Alter if they could get in and he said Justin told him south side breweries only

    I'll be in Buffalo Grove for the weekend, dropping +1 off at her place sometime Sunday afternoon, so could hit that on my way home if anyone is down.

    Uber yo' ass to Pilsen ASAP? Wednesdays are shitty for me, but $5 KBS and double daisy are hard to pass. In fact, I don't think I've ever missed this Skylark event.
    Zero beer nerds at this, so nothing kicked. It should all still be on at 11am tomorrow. Empty choice events like these are why I refuse to stand in long lines for anything.

    Disclaimer: There is almost no flavor difference between regular BCBS and coffee or barleywine this year. Coffee in particular has almost zero coffee flavor, and I didn't take a sip of any of them until they warmed up to room temp.
