I actually think you are right, the fact that (most) people had a bottle of water in the pocket - and no place to spit it out - might have been a good thing.

Come on guys, don’t be fucking stupid.
The ability to rinse your glass is a basic beery right - especially since the program emphasizes that you can only use the official glass, no hand bottles etc "out of respect for the brewers". Cool.
Is sampling a Mikkeller Spontandoubleblueberry followed by a subtle pale Saison with no rinsing facilities in between "showing respect"? Of course it’s not.
Everybody knows that, the organizers know that and I’m certain this will be changed if there’s gonna be a CBC vers. 2. Stop being so bloody defensive that you defend even the most obvious mistakes. We’re not bleeding idiots.

At the Struise booth, we did not serve Dirty Horse to anyone with a dirty glass (especially a deep purple glass!) or to anyone who had a lit cigarette in their hands.

There was only 2 or 3 people I saw during the fest that were in really bad shape. That is pretty awesome considering what I have seen at many many other fest.


... and even more awesome compared to what you will see in the streets of downtown Stavanger on an average Friday or Saturday night!

And of course that’s how it should be Gene! (Although those buckets of water did not look all THAT tempting )

Well on Day 1 I was refilling the two buckets with fresh water. On Day 2 I’m not sure who’s job it was but it would get nasty and then I ordered Urbain to refresh them
