HEY WHAT IS GOING TO BE ON TAP IN TEN DAYS JERK?


That reminds me - my buddy’s brother’s uncle-in-law is going to Tampa for a bike trip and told me he’d pick up a growler of CCB beer if there’s anything I want on tap. First he’s taking a train from Chicago to Atlanta, after which he’ll rent the bike. He’s going to order train tickets a week from next Tuesday and they’ll take 5-10 business days to arrive. Once they get here, he’s going to flip a coin to determine whether he’ll leave the day after he gets the tickets or a week after that day. He’ll then flip another coin to decide whether to get on the 10am train or the 10pm. The train ride takes 20 hours, assuming there’s no delay. The bike shop is one hour walk from the train station and it’s open from 9am to 5pm, and if he arrives after they close, he’ll have to wait til the next morning. He can bike 40 miles a day if it’s sunny, but only 20 miles if it rains. Once he gets to Tampa, if the weather report says it’ll be sunny, he’s going to go to the beach every day until the chance of rain exceeds 50%, up to a maximum of 5 days. After that, he’ll go to the brewery on the first day he can that it’s open. He doesn’t drink beer on Wednesdays or Fridays or during the second week of each month, so if the day after that lands during one of those times, he’ll have to wait til the next available day.

Tap list please!

A new line of beers a la the "$110k+OT" brand, for the surly sole proprietor in us all.

I’m thinking this is the perfect occasion to put together a Mad Libs-style "easy question" form response for the Cigar City Customer Service Representative Team, which could easily be programmed to randomize based on time of day or something else like that, and could contain all of the goofy and eccentric character of Joey’s most absurd ramblings, but would require virtually no energy or additional work after the initial programming. And the programming itself would be nothing, I’d guess, for someone who knows what the hell they’re doing. I could even do the shit in Excel. Go team, go!

What are the most basic questions that come up all the time, to which you would like to give a quick, "blow-off" style answer but not run the risk of encountering this same situation again?

"Upcoming tap list?"
"Arrange a special visit?"
"Distribution to my area?"
