Does Nick work that late?  Do any of the brewers?  After WHO gets off work??

Sounds like they are purposely leaving everyone hanging.

Sounds like typical FFF behavior.  Lots of people pissed off about this.

That's true.  And a way to keep losing some of their faithful each year too.

Exactly.  Sadly though, as pissed off as people are about it, they are still gonna attend so why shouldn't they?

Who can afford it in the store when all the bombers are running well over $10 a pop?  Every time I see it there are lots of other options that are either better at the same price point or cheaper.  Then again they can keep having DLD and treating the customer however they like and people will keep coming back asking for more.

i don't understand why all you people have your panties in a bunch

they never announced what time tickets would go on sale - but they even twittered a hint to look later in the day so you aren't checking every 5 min

we all know they are doing this to minimize the impact of those that aren't really in it for the beer

I've never drank any of the bottles of DL I've purchased.  Only given them away and have a number in the cellar.  Think I traded one for a Westy 12 and some other stuff years ago too.  Hmm.

I don't understand what everyone is bitching about.  The way they are doing it is much better than having half the people that show up not get bottles.  All you have to do is sign up for their twitter page and set it to send you a text when they update.  Then you don't have to check until you get a text and can cancel everything once you've got your tickets purchased.
