theCHIVE’s Indiana University Meetup (41 Photos)

Last year, on a whim, we decided to go back to college, rent out a bar, and see how many (if any) Chivers would show up. It was a complete accidental success and we vowed to return again to burn out what remained of our youth and drink the bottom out of Bloomington.

This year we returned to the upstairs at Kilroy's on Kirkwood for Chive Five (the weekend before IU's famous Little Five bike race). All the beer was on us, no corporate sponsors, no tickets, and the first 100 people in line received free limited edition IU KCCO's. All we asked in return was a $5 donation to the Indiana University Dance Marathon supporting Riley Children's Hospital.

When we arrived, we war blown away. The line to get upstairs stretched through downstairs and outside the bar. Last year we burned through 65 pitchers of beer. This year the Chivers rang up 470 pitchers of beer. Wow. Who knew you can measure % of annual audience growth based on pitchers consumed from one year to the next? Go figure.

Thanks to all the staff at Kilroys and especially to all the Chivers for your kind words, input, and Olympic-level beer drinking ability. theCHIVE would be nothing without y'all and we don't take that for granted for a second. We'll see you next year.

Next stop: New York City.

      • Rick_

        Typical 30+ year old virgin living in mother's basement wishing for a girl half that attractive…
        Or jealous female. Either way, gtfo. 🙂

        • hahaha

  • HatBomb

    #22 Why do I get the feeling that there are dark and terrifying things going on in Mac's head?

    • Lev

      Mac's photos are consistently amusing. He may not have a scarf, but the dude has presence.

    • Paula_

      Trust me, it's always worse than you think with Mac.

  • jkmcdermott

    #35 You guys are awesome! All this happitude and charity too. I take back those things I said about your dog. Just know that there is no way to adequately prepare for a NYC trip. We await you. All of us.

  • jimstarswagg

    Certain-dry fellas.. Soaked pit photo bombs..

    • KyleGamgee

      Deodorant is NO MATCH for some of us.

      • jimstarswagg

        I too felt the wetness creeping down my sleeve/side.. Seriously though, Certain dry has been the most amazing thing ever. I can actually wear light grey shirts without black holes developing in my pits lmao!

  • Erik

    Congratulations IU on a great turnout.

    However I can't help but feel that the party hasn't even arrived at the party until making a visit to University of Wisconsin. We'll be waiting for you after the pre-game in New York City is finished!

    On Wisconsin!

    A Loyal Chiver

    • hwath

      I second that notion.

    • UDUB


      • Badger1

        Fourth, come to Wisconsin and see how many pitchers we can go through.

    • Yo Mamma


  • morebeer

  • johns scarf

    Good on you guys. Wish I could have made it but big ups for taking care of the tab and handing out free shirts. In this corporate world, nobody gives a feathered fuck about their patrons but you guys put your money where your mouth is and let your fans give the money to charity instead. All class.

  • Marie


    Didn't go to the meet up but met John the night before at upstairs pub. He was very nice to everyone 🙂

    • anony

    speaking of 1,000 I heard the chive also tipped the staff $1,000. if true, awesome

    • HatBomb

      I can see that happening, I imagine the tab was pretty damn impressive…

      • yup

        tab was over $5,000 not including tip, which was $1,000. good guys

        • Ned_Plimpton

          15-20% tip is actually pretty standard…

        • Ned_Plimpton

          15-20% tip is pretty standard.

    It was better than I hoped. chive crew are genuine guys, not surprised they've created such a cool community. I'll like anybody who buys me a beer, much less all of my beer.
