10:45 am: Arrived. Line is long. 11:00 am: They start handing out tokens. They run out. Have to make more (which are numbers on a poker chip but for some reason it takes forever) 12:30 pm: Finally got token #344. 1:00 pm: Checked into hotel and went to Denny's 3:00 pm: Went back to brewery for the start of the party 8:30 pm: About 8 beers deep and drunk and eating the free food. Give my token to my friend because it would be at least another 2 to 2.5 hours until they reach my number. I know I can't stay and this high alcohol beer, otherwise it'd be bad news. Walk the mile back to my hotel. 9:00 pm: Go to Wendy's near hotel and get food. 10:00 pm: Passed out at unknown time but 2 of the guys I was staying with are pounding on the door. I let them in. Instead of waiting in line to get beer they walked to some grocery store and bought 2 cases of Coors Light and some Sparks. Drink a Sparks. 10:30 pm: Last person that was staying in same room arrives. Continue to drink. 12:00 am: Pass out So in conclusion we got there early for ultimately no reason because we all ended up too drunk and left before 10:30/11 pm when it would have been our turn to buy beer. Don't really regret it, had everything I would've bought on draft so Plus I knew I would get too drunk so I didn't even take my car in the afternoon so I would've had to carry a box of beer a mile. Next year if I go, I'm just going to attend the party event and skip the whole clusterfuck in the morning. The party is still a good event. $5, and you can buy excellent beer on draft for $4 a piece and they bring out awesome food, grilled lamb, elk, deer, pig, etc.
