Sorry for the sideways pic, not sure how to fix that?!
Here's what I got over the weekend!
BB Péché Mortel and BB Solstice d'hiver (barleywine) + a new bottle opener!
Hard for me to concentrate at work all day when I knew these 2 west coast trades were waiting for me at home.
Trade with seaofshells
Blind pig, big barrel double ipa, hopocalypse, our finest regards, Santa Cruz brown, idiot ipa.
Trade with whitejordan
Only the 3 x arctic devil were agreed upon, the berserker and cascade Kriek were extras! Thanks Jordan you blew me away!
Courtesy of TriageStat...thank you much.
Second trade complete and my first haul from Cigar City and Terrapin
Some goods jkeffer13 hooked it up with, thx again for the awesome trade
This may be premature but I just got a message saying this is on the way
4 Heady Topper, 4 Perpetual IPA, 2 Impending Descent, and 2 homebrews.
Mike, you killed it man! Absolutely floored by your generosity Cheers man!
Okay it's not KtG, but Royal Impy Stout is one smooth and immensely drinkable beer!
Is this new? Never heard of this one.
Recent haul from the Valley of the Sun
Yes, new head brewer, new imperial stout. It's quite delicious, picked up 8 bottles myself.
Great box from a friend I trustee for on the east coast. Part trade/part thank you box.
I have one each of the regular versions..if those are as good as I'm expecting I can't imagine how good yours are!
Nice, I might have to hit the ISO/FT forum soon.
Stocked up on one of my favorite seasonal releases along with its variation and an added treat.
ah, a local!!!!!
Thanks for the heads up. I looked it up and swear I saw '05, but that must've been draft reviews and such. The guy who sent it to me didn't even know what year it was, but the bottle is stamped "05" at the base, which I understand is the only way to tell. So odd to see such a beer with a twist-off cap, too.
Ya they did twist offs for the first couple of years I think. weird that it said 05 on it, I can't explain that one.
Stopped by my local bottle shop:
Well, the stamping is when the bottle was made, so given it's released in spring, it makes sense that they might have bottles made in 2005 being used for the beer. Recently had an '07 or '08 bottle (again, stamped "07") and it was also a twist-off. Held up quite well, too.
Vermont is where its at
You're soooo lucky you got all that HT while in VT! I was just up there, and the brewery was SOLD OUT! Thank God I was able to find 2 four-packs at a liquor store ~12miles away... Still, I was planning on buying 1.5-2 cases, so I was pretty bummed by that...
Here's my haul from VT last weekend. Wish there was more HT available!

Recent trip to ME from RI
Trade from smonice that landed Tuesday. Can't explain how excited I am for the HTs.
Trade #3 with surge 1311, no request just gave each other random stuff!
A couple of AWESOME trades came in yesterday:
From a superbly generous trading partner, Rutager:
The Framboise For A Cure, '12 BCBS, and Red Racer were all extras. He is a madman and an awesome BA.
The BBPT5 and BWB were extras. The BBPT5 was a long time want of mine, and he extra'd it without a blink. Truly an awesome BA. Thanks a ton, I will get you back!
Couple of world class BAs - thanks again, cheers!
That is some great stuff!
One of my first trades arrived from Sarge3130 arrived a few minutes ago...pretty pumped at the prospect of trading for beers not available in Ohio!
Hope he likes what I sent him.
So badly ISO that Bourbon County glass! Nice haul
It is a freaking sweet glass. Great size. Very pleased. I believe I'll be testing it out for the first time tonight. Cheers.
