    #006 is coming up in August and tickets are available.

    http://m.bpt.me/event/605705

    Replicale tickets "sold out", but they will put up some more today. In my opinion, it isn't worth it. Just go for the regular session.

    What's the regular session if I don't buy early bird?

    Should preface that I'm absolutely going but not sure on other numbers.

    Edit: Nevermind, I see it's 45 vs. 40. :shrug: I'll just wait until I get confirmation from friends.

    Every year I say I'm gonna go, then tickets go on sale and I forget to get people to buy them. Worked out, though, as I'll be out of town this weekend anyway.

    Drank the damn 11.8% ABV beer with Deuce, Fed, +1s, and Fed's friends.

    Solid event. No rain, tons of beers and the only long line was to some shitty Pipeworks beer. Fed and family were good fun. Only mistake I made was I forgot that I was supposed to meet up with Mrs. Deuce afterwards and instead went out to eat with Fed. Thankfully, the Mrs is very forgiving. Big thanks to Fed for saving my beer glass that I forgot at the restaurant.

    Best Beer: BCBS
    Best New Beer: T-Rex Hugs from Atlas Brewing
    Shit Beer: Black Kolsch by Solemn Oath Brewing
    Worst New Brewery: Tie between Greenstar Brewing, Forgotten Root Brewing and Werk Force Brewery.
    Beer Regret: Not trying the infused Hopvine IPA or Madame Rose from Goose Island.

    Local brewery list is sick but no 3F, Ale Syndicate, or Off Color for some reason.

    Looks like I'll have at least an extra ticket or two for the extra hour session. $40, which the the Early Bird price for the regular ticket.

    This year is especially disappointing, as I'm only missing to see the Beloved because a high school buddy is in town with an extra ticket. Someone else offers a ticket, I can pass, but I won't see this guy this Christmas if I don't go.

    My brother-in-law Ed will be there (who usually plays in the Turkey Bowl and recently moved overby Deuce). Also, a hot chick from my work (and her husband).

    Which beer pourer will I tell to get fucked this year? Stay tuned.

    According to tweets:

    Empirical will have Infinity IPA and Gamma-Ray Ginger Wheat.

    Revolution will have Citra Hero, Rosa, Rise & a Replicale.

    Hay market will have Uber Mathias, Clare's Thirsty, Aleister & Toonces 7.

    You just walk around and drink as much as you want of whatever you want.

    They have food for purchase, but everything else is included in the ticket price.

    Nobody collects tickets. They only exist because they're required by IL law.

    VIP gets unlimited pours in a full-sized glass.

    Again, the number of tix are irrelevant. You can drink more or less if you want. Most people dumpjerry their glass if they don't like a beer. I've only hurled once in however many years this has been held, probably because I had a VIP glass and was drinking near pints of delicious 12% beer. The average person gets quite faced. The place is crawling with cops who are as relevant as the tix, apparently under orders to do nothing.
