View Full Version : Beer? Glass bottles
05-04-2005, 11:43 AM
OK, so i know it says no glass bottles in the concert area, but what about in the campground area? Are they going to confiscate my beer upon entry? Do they search your car? We can drink beer at our campsites right?? Please tell me security isn't going to take my brews! :? Thanks

I am the beer police, please tell me where you are camping so I can come and take your beer away ;)

Technically, you are not allowed to bring glass containers into the campgrounds.
Broken glass and barefoot campers do not make a good combination. :cry:
Since I like my imports and microbrews, which usually only come in bottles, last year we brought some gravity feed mini-kegs (about 1 1/2 gallons) of Beck's and Wersteiner.:idea:
However, for what it is worth, last year, they did not search our car or even look in our coolers. :lol:

I only drink imports or microbrews, but I did what I was told and brought cans of Fosters (yuck!). When I got to the campsite, it seemed like every other person had bottles, so needless to say, I was upset that I was one of the only people to follow the rules. But they were selling two or three liter (can't remember which) bottles of Fat Tire at the general store, so that was nice.

I say go to a big liquor store and search for quality canned stuff. There are a number of good Irish and British ales in cans. Oskar's (Lyons, CO) makes a decent pale ale in a can if you can get it.
Damn, I suppose my dreams of drinking some fine wine by the lake are shattered (pun intended). I don't always play by the rules, but it does make sense to avoid the glass situation. Then again, I'm not a maniac or anything, so maybe I'll sneak. Hell, I'll pour it in my car - really, security dude, it won't leave my car.
Which brings up the possibility of bringing some plastic cups and pouring the bottles into cups before you go tripping off...

i find pouring your glass bottle into a plastic keg cup does the trick nicely. just remember to put your bottles in the proper recepticle!

I would like some tasty microbrew in cans, but those are hard to come by. I can drink a few of those guiness cans, but that might weigh me down considering how I'll need to jump from stage to state (and sometimes be in two places at once!) to see all these bands.

I find that a 5 gallon corney keg with a tasty homebrew will do the trick. No bottles and reuse your cup and you will use less stuff. Not that I would ever consider bringing something like this.

Did I mention that you can also use a couple of these and have a couple of differnt kinds as well.

I am going to transfer my kegged home brew into plastic 2 liter bottles. Don't leave home without the homebrew.

Newcastle is basically all I drink (I'm drinking it right now :D ) but I can't find it in cans anywhere here in Topeka. I've actually only seen it once in cans, at Argonaut Liquor in Denver, and it doesn't really taste as good as it does in bottles. Kinda weird. But I will be bringing bottles of Newkie this year, to hell with the rules!

I actually like the newcastle cans, pretty much every liquor store in colorado carries em...it may not be quite as good as the bottles but they arn't clear so they're better for drinking outside. Ill probably have my buddy get me some Odells lowfills so that I dont care if I cant bring em in

does anyone know the price of the growlers of Fat Tire and Sunshine? I'm bring lots of dank beer with me into the campground, but I was wondering if the beer in the concert area is reasonably priced :?:
06-08-2005, 04:02 PM
I think they were 9 or 10 bucks last year.
06-08-2005, 09:31 PM
They sell growlers? Sweet...
06-08-2005, 09:58 PM
hell yeah! that's all good with me. :D
what about individual beers? (though I think I'll go with the growlers.....that's like a gallon of beer...correct?)
