  2. Eric says:

    Got em Jon.

  3. fb says:

    When does the line begin to form at Surly?

  4. Eric says:

    fb, I would check out the various threads at BeerAdvocate. I know some people camp out over night, others arrive around 8am, and still others take their chances and get there as the gates are opening. I guess it depends how brave you are!

    Last year I got there around 6:30 am and was about halfway through the wristband-receiving section of the line. I think. Maybe between 1/3 and 1/2. Anyway, I wasn’t among the first few hundred there.

    This year I’m strongly considering going to Darkness Eve, seeing a couple bands, then going straight to the brewery around 1 or 2am.

    The wait last year was actually pretty fun, if cold before the sun got to a reasonable point in the sky.

  6. fb says:

    When do they hand out wristbands?

  7. mattm says:

    Last year it was around 11.

  8. Ben says:

    Leinie’s Big Eddie Russian Imperial Stout added to the lineup.

  9. dbrewing says:

    So, no non-Surly local beer?

  10. Jon from Stubs says:

    No D-bag-brewing.

    We took the other locals off tap for 4 hours last Friday. We are back to 23 local taps now.

    What are you in the seventh grade?
