This is the blurb from the Gen Con newsletter.  

You’re not “just grabbing a soda” — you’re heading off on a tastebud-dazzling journey into the world of flavor, with yours truly - the one and only Wild Bill - as your guide. Find Wild Bill’s western themed saloon on Georgia Street, and don’t forget to bring your mug, or purchase a new tumbler for easy refills. Treat yourself to an infinite number of combinations of salty snacks and sweet soda pop from Wild Bill’s!

Yes we could, but why would we need to?

Does Wild Bills typically bring anything sugar-free to GenCon? If so is it any good?

They did last year, and it was very good.

Sorry,  I didn't like the taste myself.   YMMV.

I hope they have samples in the Exhibit Hall again to tempt folks so they can judge for themselves.

It's always outside, except for the sample booth

on a side note I'm going to spend the $40 ? and try it this year. It falls under my try something NEW at every Gen Con. I figure I don't drink like i sue to so my kidneys should get the chance to play catch up with my destroyed Liver

As stated above Wild Bill's or any food/drink will always be outside due to contracts. Years ago when Voodoo Elixers had a booth on the floor selling cases or Root Jack you had to pick it up after the convention or one of the local bars. They were not allowed to hand you a soda while inside the convention area.

Again Thanks for the info, I plan on bringing my mug i got from them at my last gencon and bring a metal tumbler with a lid to pour the drink into

You can buy cans at the booth exhibit hall but you cant get the mug refilled.

there were some decent sugar free flavors at the booth for sampling but none of them were available at the refill station outside. I remember being about to buy a mug after tasting inside and then not due to that.

That's pretty much the same reason I will be trying it this year!

I thought about ordering a mug online. They have several designs. But do they have a special design they only bring to  Gen Con?

I doubt that'll happen hah, though we can be glad the sugar keeps them occupied and they don't really care about the people

Question about the mug. If I get a real carabiner with a with a twist lock will that fit around the handle so I can attach it to my bag?  

Or maybe a better question is how do you carry/attach your mug

Thanks in advance

Signed the who's office window overlooks the ICC...and its KILLING me :)

At renaissance faires it's really popular to have a little leather strap attached to your belt to hold your drinking mug. I'd bet that you could find those for sale on the exhibit floor.

No offense but that's way too nerdy, at least for me, and the irony is not lost on me since we are all choosing to attend a NERD convention
