Early access for the Friday afternoon session as an add-on isn't available this year. That's annoying. (Aside from Brewer's Gathering and presumably the seminars which I don't want.) Was this a known thing that I missed?

Had I known that I would have tried to get the early bird tickets. :-?

Sigh.

Not sure if they had it last year...but when I went 2 years ago there was no early access for Session 1.
Everyone with tickets / baller passes / etc got same entry time for Session 1. Only the Night and Saturday ones had early access.

Hmmmm... I'll have to recheck my previous years tickets. Maybe I'm confusing things with the Saturday session.

I definitely got admitted early last year for the Friday afternoon session (as did a bunch of people.)

Got tickets for Session 3 on Saturday, the earliest I could manage to go. Can't wait. Last year's event was the first time I tried Cascade's Vlad The Imp Aler - thought I had died and went to heaven!

Finally decided to buy a ticket. To accommodate a friend from out of town I’m doing Friday evening for the first time.

I noticed the brewery list is up (i don’t know how long it’s been up). I have to say I am really excited to see Yorkshire Square. I know some think they are the best makers of traditional British styles in the US.

I’ve only had Hair of the Dog in bottles before so that is another exciting one for me. I’ll be curious to try Monkish too. I had some good Other Half cask IPAs last year and hoping Monkish stuff translates just as well.

It certainly is. :D I'm sitting at 41 want to haves in one session. Unlikely to happen. :P Time to relegate things to the backup list.

I wish I could still do two days... :cry:

I was pretty vicious in culling my list and I'm down to 24. I guess I hope that some of them get tapped before I get to them so I don't die?

I hadn't counted but this made me curious enough to check - I flagged 19 Tier 1 and 27 Tier 2 priorities :) History suggests at least 1/3 of those I will miss out on but we shall see!

I am having a tough time narrowing things down. I’m in the 30s. I’ll need to start ranking.

Is the keg section new this year? I don’t remember it from last year.

They had a a much smaller keg section last year but didn't really promote it. (Or at least I personally wasn't really aware of it until I got to the fest.)

Looks like I need to spend my Thursday planning what I want to drink at Cask Days in Friday :P
I like that they are releasing some new stuff on Saturday, it will make it easier to pace myself on Day 1.
