Biertag '08


While not quite as glorious as the first Biertag festival, Biertag '08 was at the very least the continuation of Malton's favorite pastime. No, not zombie killing, beer drinking. Biertag '08 was still considered a success by the Burchell Arms Regulars (B.A.R.) and festival co-founder, noted NecroTech scientist Caleb Usher. At this time it is still unclear whether any parties were held at the other churches across Malton, as for now only records exist for the party at St. Arnold's Church in Rolt Heights.

The celebration in Rolt Heights was hosted by the B.A.R. who made a point of showing up and drinking as much as possible. Other guests varied from group to group, most showing up unannounced to party for a while before leaving. Even though by the end of the day not as many people showed up for Biertag '08 as they had for Biertag '07, a factor attributed to the fact that noted NecroTech scientist Caleb Usher was no longer in Malton to help promote the holiday as he had in the previous year. This factor alone, given the mercurial nature of survivor groups over the course of an entire year, may have accounted for the lower turn-out. Even so, the celebration was still considered a success insomuch as people showed up, drank beers, and had some fun. Maybe next year more advertising will help spread the word and increase the number of celebrants. Only time will tell.

Guests of Honor

back to top

While its generally considered that anyone who shows up at Biertag is considered "special", if only for their ability to drink epic quantities of alcohol that would kill a lesser man (or woman), there were still a few notable individuals who attended Biertag '08 that should be mentioned because of one reason or another. Those individuals were:

Special Guests Who are they...? Famous for what...?
Tommy Monahan Co-Leader of the Burchell Arms Regulars A man with a dream... a dream of free beer dispensed from every faucet in Malton. Now there's a dream worth fighting for!
Blanemcc Leader of the Browncoats For his good sense of humor.
RichTee Leader of the Rambling Drunks In March '08 RichTee took up the mantle as leader of the Rambling Drunks. What better way to celebrate the occasion than with a drink, or 3? Or more. Actually we're still counting...
Evildemon989 Head of Foreign and Domestic Affairs for Metal Fox. For drunk and disorderly conduct that made every other drunk proud. There's only one real way to be drunk and he showed it.
The'Joker Co-Leader of the The Watchmen He may be a killer, but the man loves Bob Dylan. How can anyone hate a man who loves Dylan? He even sang "All Along the Watchtower".

Those Who Rallied to the Call of BEER!

In addition to the guests of honor, there were survivors from a variety of groups which showed up at the Biertag beer festival to help celebrate. Listed are the group they were affiliated with (at the time at least), and thus, showed their group's support for the holiday. It should also be mentioned that there may have been other groups present that might have been overlooked, which is a serious possibility as most of the people there were blitzed out of their minds, but here are the groups who we know had representatives (and yes, we use that term loosely) at the various festivals:

Beer Pledge '08

back to top

Biertag '08, as the Biertags before it, has now passed in Malton's history books, but these are the people who originally planned to drop by and join in the celebrations. This sign-up list was considered extra important for those survivors who happened to have a murderous background, as it would have allowed others to recognize that they were at the church to kill a few beers, not people. Later this offer was extended to zombies as well, although most were revived during the festival in order for them to join in the drinking:

Sign-Up List for the Rolt Heights Party

  1. Caleb Usher - NecroTech - "He was a wise man who invented beer. Science + Beer = Good."
  2. Evildemon989 - Metal Fox - "For 1, Caleb watches too many Mythbusters, and 2, I will be there."

  5. soberdoc - D.I.T.P.S - "Beer is proof that God loves us! I'm goin'."
  6. The'Joker - The Watchmen - "I think I'll practice my vocal cords for Bob Dylans 'Hurricane' this time. Hmm note to self: bring more Grolsch, Methelated spirits = 3 week hangover."

Pub Banter

All the best parties start their planning a month in advance. That or the BAR plans to collect and consume a month's worth of beer in one night. I'm not a betting man, but the odds look fairly even on either possibility.

Biertag IS awesome. If you ever doubted me, then listen to Mr. Gomez here. Would he steer you wrong?

Below we see an all too common sight among BAR members. After you mention free beer most people just stop reading. Also when you're drunk June and July are basically the same month. Like seriously they couldn't have made it more confusing putting the only two J-months in the year right next to each other and with the same number of letters? What's up with that? Anyway drunkeness and planning don't go well together, but when you're drunk you usually don't care about what you planned anyway.

While science hasn't proven if everyone who missed Biertag '07 felt this way... we assume that's the case.
