You're old.

You sound bitter. I can sneak a pour in a flask for you.

Plus, if i remember correctly, zwanze starts pouring at 2, and the lsu game will be at 7 or 8. Both are doable.

If that's the case, I may head down. Would be 50/50 on that.

maybe more importantly Avenue said that Fou Foune wont be on tap, but will be available in bottle pours.

I've never been to Zwanze before; how early do you need show up if you want to try the limited Cantillon beers?

Typically we have gotten there an hour or two early and had no problems.

I'll be there but it will be more a Friday evening Saturday morning thing. I'm very interested in the Bama/ A&M game and the pub ain't the place to watch it.

damn that's a 230 game? I want to watch that as well .. they should have the TVs on the appropriate channel. I can tolerate the first half there then move to a better location for watching the rest of the game.

From Avenue Pub Site
Zwanze Day

quote:

We have now successfully run several of these high profile tappings. The feedback we’ve gotten from customers is that their experience is relaxing and fun! They never have to worry if someone will push in front of them, they don’t have to stand in line, or get to the bar 6 hours before a tapping to insure they get to drink the beer they came for. All the fabulous rare beers we tap mean a fun time while you wait for the Zwanze tapping at 2pm. Plan to make a day of it at the Pub. We won’t sell you a ticket or put your name on the waiting list if you plan to leave and come back. Only people present will be put and kept on the “arrival list” or sold a ticket.
Tickets can only be purchased in person on the day of the event.

The Zwanze 2013 Tapping will be at 2pm, but some of the other beers will be available prior to 2pm. Some beers are so limited that they will only be poured for ticket holders. Purchasing a ticket is not a guarantee that the ticket holder will get any particular beer listed on the ticket. We only sell 135 tickets but IF there is more waste than we expect in a keg or a bottle, we could run out.

Ticket sales will not begin until shortly prior to the Zwanze tapping on September 14th. We will keep track of those who arrive earlier and tickets will be sold to those individuals in the order in which they arrived at the Pub.

We have a small bar and lots of people waiting can clog up the works. Please do not arrive early and occupy seating until you are ready to order something. Your name will be put on the “arrival list” when you have ordered your first beer and I will personally be walking around to let people know when to buy their tickets. Initially the upstairs bar will be closed but when the downstairs fills up those who arrived first will be given first crack at moving upstairs for the balcony seating. Zwanze will be tapped in the upstairs bar.

Ok. It doesn't say how much the ticket is. Any idea on the cost? Just curious how much SF kicks up the price.
