5 Hours of Driving, 4 Hours in Line, 3 Floyds Brewery, 2 Groups of New Friends and 1 Hell of a Beer Haul

This is probably the craziest thing I’ve done to get my hands on a few amazing beers…thus far in my life.

On November 12th of last year, 3 Floyds Brewery (FFF) celebrated their 15th anniversary and did so in Fabulous Fermented Fashion. In order to attend this event, you had to be lucky enough to have purchased one of the 2,500 tickets online that sold out in about 60 seconds or purchase one of the 700 sold at the brewery. I was lucky the day they went on sale.

On that fine Saturday back in November, I made the two and a half hour drive down to Munster, IN, where I waited in two different lines for a total of about four hours. Fortunately, the weather was absolutely gorgeous that day. As I waited in line, I quickly made friends with the two groups of people directly in front of me. Just as I did, they brought a few beers to share while patiently waiting in line. And because they were from different states, we all got to try a few different beers we had never tasted before.

When all was said and done, I made a few new friends and I got exactly what I hoped for in that trip along with a few other beers available that day I didn’t know would be (pictured below).

Would I do something like this again? Absolutely!!!

Cheers!

    And when you do it again, be sure to stop and see your sister in South Bend! I’m worth the wait and the drive too 😉
