had a special delivery from a coworker who went to anchorage for the weekend...
L -> R
Ballast Point Sculpin IPA
Two fresh growlers from Endless Brewing, just down the road from me. Got their new barleywine and one of their IPAs, if anyone is interested in them you can check out my reviews for those two and others.
Left Hand Milk stout
Left Hand Nitro
Victory Hop Wallop
Southern Tier Iniquity (a favorite of mine, first time seeing it in 12oz bottles so I added one to my mix-a-six)
Flying Dog Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout
That Stone was great fresh, not too sure now though. Had my last one last year and it was less than stellar. Tasted like grapefruit soda fresh.
Unwrapped this little doozie from beergod1.
not getting grapefruit... more like a brown ale/esb. still hoppy, buy not fruit hop, just dry bitter.
Like I said, fresh it was refreshingly awesome citrus. Remember, that beer was brewed to help build VT after Irene in 2011. IPA +1.5 years old.
Totally wrecked by Pando.
Hooker IPA, Terrapin Hopsecutioner, Hooker Irish Ale, Hooker Blonde Ale, Attempter Redrum, Weyerbacher Merry Monks', Hoponius Union, Hooker Chocolate Truffle Stout, Ithaca Casca Zilla, Weyerbacher Double Simcoe
4 Packs of KBS 2013, Double Trouble, Curmudgeon 2012, Curmudgeon 2013, Heady Topper
Utopias 2007 with Utopias Glass
Such a crazy haul. Thank you so much Pando!
I needed another good stout to stop myself from cracking another Parabola as that was my true "a-ha" moment when it comes to stouts.
Barleywine box from my cousin in WA state -- thanks, Brian!
T.C.'s Banana Split Stout is by far, IMO, the best beer they make. The rest are rather pedestrian for sure.
No, but you can message me for a trade
The midwest box was from a trade.
You have to love surprise boxes.....especially ones with so many CO goodies. You're the man Skeeter!
Thank you Lledd for these goodies!
and a little Magnificent 7 from City Beer Store
finally made its way to south jersey. one for me, one for my brother, and one to age. can't wait to see what all the hype is about (unfortunately i have a severe cold, so have to wait to try this!)
IP trade with Blkcld. Great BA member. Chilled at his house for a bit and kicked back some Zombie Dust, Parabola and Pliny. Good times!
*missing from photo: 2 Pliny the Elders. My taste buds thank them for their service.
A big thanks to bespin15 for this fantastic box out of Washington. I was able to get one of my favorite beers (XXI), get a beer that has been on my "wants" for quite some time (Imagination 2009), and get a newer beer I've heard about and wanted to try (Fremont Old Bridge Rider). The rest were extras!
The wife Was in Santa Rosa for a week and stopped by the brewery on the way back to Socal. Surprised me with a case of Pliny bottled 5/16 and a growler of Blind Pig.
Hey New Belgium.
1 6-pack Rampant Imperial IPA
1 Lips of Faith Plutot
1 Lips of Faith Paardebloem
An awesome fellow BA, MisterGrizz, sent me a beer it forward package of beers that I can't get here in Chicago for me to review on my blog. It's like Christmas in May.
Nice haul. Did you trade your vintage Chewbacca action figure still in box for those?
Came in today from a trade with my buddy Mike out in CA. Enjoying the Dorado now
Shit, that would pull walez, bro.
Where in south jersey?

The funny part is that out all of these beers, can you guess which one I'm looking forward to taste? It's this guy:
Mmmmm...something about a salty beer that I'm attracted to. I wonder why?
Small haul after work today. Think I'll save the Plum Noir for new beer Sunday!

How does one get magical Heady Topper?? Or any Heady Topper for that matter!!!!
"Hotel Haul" - Life is good on the road when you across stuff like this. (Pretty much all my wallet could handle at the moment before my wife kills me when I get home. ) Not pictured but also picked up a few Plum Noirs, a sixer of Rye of the Tiger, and an Unearthly and Oaked Unearthly.
