Dogfish Head Faithful Ale

My wife and I are traveling from Milton, DE (where Dogfish Head is brewed) to Chicago for the Saturday night show at Wrigley.  We have Ten Club pit tickets and some extra bottles of Faithful Ale that was brewed in celebration of the band's 20th Anniversary.  Hoping to be able to get the bottles to the band somehow for the show but know we cannot take them in on our own.  I e-mailed "Contact Us" on the Ten Club site.  Anybody know if that is the best chance of getting the bottles to the band so they can have them for the show or know of a better way???

Thanks!

DJ

    FYI - if this is the beer that was made years back for PJ20, it's bad and shouldn't be consumed at this point.

    I consumed a bottle or 2 earlier this year.  DFH ages pretty well.  Faithful Ale does not age as well as 120 but it is still drinkable.

    Dogfishhead makes some of my favorite beer. Hope to visit the brewery someday.

    Not sure why the band would want these bottles. I wouldn't bother.

    Likely Dogfishhead sent them some already back in 2011.

    It was not good 7 years ago. Can't possibly be any good today.
    Good luck in your endeavor.

    7% is pretty low alcohol content to age very well.

    Yeah why would the band want this old beer, it definitely isn’t drinkable at 7 years old. I had 1 at Wrigley 2013 that was teetering on bad. I’m not trying to be a dick but I’m pretty sure the band got as many of these as they wanted back in 2011.

    I hear y'all.  Not a big deal.  Just thought maybe they did not have any left and that maybe it would be cool.  Maybe not according to y'all!  :-)  Dogfish was still selling them this year as part of their Vintage stash and I did not die from drinking it.  LOL

    Regardless, stoked to get to Chicago for the concert.
