Good little before work haul today. Really stoked about the Anchorage teku. Its 4 grams lighter than the Lost Abbey teku, but it does have the anchorage logo laser etched in the bottom of the glass.
Ive never seen KBS in person in my life. Yet you find three 4 packs! Awesome man! Hopefully I'll be so lucky one day!
Two weeks of trades to catch up on--
Thanks to solo13 for these two. Trade was for Mexican Cake, he threw in the Secret Spot 2nd Anniversary. AWESOME!
mverity came through with a CCB goodie. Coincidentally this is going to be cracked tonight along with a two-year vert of Huna that never got opened over the 4th of July weekend
IP trade from a coincidental close local, jordanblaskey (ironically for the MC in my first picture)
Today's incoming box from CA. Big thanks to AdamSimpson (second-time trading) for helping me out with last week's Drake's release:
BA Numbskull as an extra? HYFR

crappy pic (was drunk when i took it last night...)
but this is the end of one trade,
I turned 21 today and I am going to Russian River! Cheers!
Got this thanks to Stakem! Troegs Triple Mango x 2, Flanders homebrew, Pizza Boy Pine-Apple Sour, No Label Mint IPA. 1st trade in a very long time for me, Stakem went above and beyond.
Thats awesome man! If you feel like trading for anything Oky let me know!
My two-install haul:
Coupla Hoptimums, which I've had before and enjoyed
Ovila Abbey Saison - gotta love the cage and cork on a 12-oz. bottle, no?
Calabaza Blanca - a witbier from Jolly Pumpkin
And then I snagged these later:
EvilTwin's Yin and Yang, Imperial stout and IPA, respectively. Never had either.
Figure I'll try 'em separate first, and then go for a black and tan, combining the two.
Small haul from the local bottle shop.

1L Tired Hands We Are 138 x 2
