Wow. I'm ordering that glass right now!
I had to grab one when I saw it, seriously awesome, then I somehow couldn't leave with less than two.
Took back the bottle returns today and my wife had me grab a few choice brews.
Love the print, but I've decided I won't ever buy a shaker pint again. I have like 50 or 60 of them I never use for beer.
Some very exciting gems from inebriatedjoker:
Love the Ohio representation from Stinger! Feel like this guy lives too close NOT to have a beer with at some point!
Small beer run today.

Much welcomed beer mail after dealing with stupid-beyond-reason people at work today:
My first trade. JK FunkMetal & Boxer's Revenge with a couple of extras.
Big thanks to Bryan!

Today was a good day!
I'm from Michigan...
I had the Biscotti last weekend. it is great, but not worth the ridiculous price. make sure you have some desserts. it was fantastic with some cookies.
Found a new grocery carrying craft beer in Memphis today. It's called Cash Saver, and it's a discount grocery with ridiculous beer prices. They sell all their merchandise at cost + 10%, but for beer they sell at 3% below cost + 10% of the adjusted price! I picked up to mix-n-match 6ers for $16 and change. I'd already had 3 by the time I took this picture. The missing brews are Shiner Premium, Seadog Blueberry, and Scrimshaw Pils. If you live in the Memphis area, I'm posting a new Beer store on the BA site with pics of the beers in stock, so head's up! I met the Beer Dept. manager and he told me they're looking into possibly installing a growler system to distribute Ghost River, as well as 3 new breweries opening later this year: High Cotton, WISEACRE, and Memphis Made.
Awesome trade arrived today, had to get some CW BBBW for the cellar. Twelve of them will do me well over the next 4-5 years!
Thanks to teamwiggum. Chris is the man!
Who says Cantillon never comes to NYC? Haul from an exciting day of running around local bottle shops in Manhattan/Brooklyn.
Two cases of DC Brau On the Wings of Armageddon, canned 3-15-2013.

Thanks Randy for another great one.

Big thanks to Deadonhisfeet for this trade with awesome extras!
where did you find it and was it $40+ each bottle?
Yea I picked up six Behemoth's...very enjoyable!
A case of heady topper will put a smile on anyones face.
Small haul today!
I paid $20 for the Iris, $12 for the Gueze, and $14.50 each for the Rose. Brooklyn Larder.
I should add that Larder only had the Gueze and Rose, and when I went last night at 6:30, there were maybe 3 left of each.
The Iris I got at another bottle shop that only got 6 in. There's some Cantillon floating around NYC right now, it seems like Shelton Brothers just randomly sent 12 bottles (6 of the Gueze and 6 of another random style) to some of their better accounts. Some shops are posting it (and selling out fast), some you have to just call to get an answer. I know that City Swiggers had 750's of Gueze for $25 and Kriek for $40. Bierkraft sold out of all the Gueze they had but told me they expect another small shipment, possibly today. Guy told me there's a 50/50 chance it's Kriek (although he told me he heard that Torst got like 4 cases of Kriek).
Good luck! BM me if you're having trouble finding some.
Better pic of the glasses? Interested in trading one?
