    :lol: the official explanation for the price increase:
    "Every year, some shitty brewers send us shitty beer that nobody wants to drink. They don't even bother to attend the fest, so we have to ship the kegs back. This year, we will ship the kegs with the shitty beer still inside. It is far less expensive to dump the beer and ship empty kegs, which is what we did in previous years."

    I think it was 2014 where they were really fucking dickheads over grabbing tickets. What a joke that they probably ended up pouring out a shit ton of beer as a result.

    Seems like, once again, ol' Cheddarman asks for recommendations and then proceeds to not go to any of the places recommended.

    I went to Greenbush twice and a newer small place in Detroit called Batch Brewing that was decent, plus Detroit Beer Company, Grand Trunk Pub, Queens Bar, and Mudgie's Deli.

    So the actual wall between the inside and outside of the building is insufficient "separation?" :thinking:

    Based on other Indiana establishments I can think of, apparently a three-foot tall "wall" is sufficient "separation" to protect the youth from being corrupted by the daemon grain.

    Retardation is...

    Shoreline in MI City used to have one of them 3' walls separating the bar / brewery section from the non-smoking / family section of their one-room operation. While the wall apparently complied with the law, it didn't do much to keep the cigarette smoke out, so then they installed glass barriers on top of the wall. It felt like drinking in a hockey rink.

    This was like 10 years ago. Not sure what it looks like now.

    They still have the fishbowl, but I don't think there's smoking at all inside. So you're just kinda in another room.

    Fuck the description. The host will procure legit beers...which is the subject of this thread.

    CoProsperity Sphere drinking haps are generally pretty epic, but you squares generally aren't invited.

    Short notice. This one is today:
    https://www.facebook.com/events/165895227301863/

    RSVP list is shockingly small, so maybe it won't be a shitshow.

    Maybe

    Also, I thought Todd the Axe Man was your jam.

    I like Todd but can get it anywhere if I feel like being gouged. I'm planning on hitting Half Acre on Balmoral tomorrow so I'm saving up for that.
