    Just got my call from Argonauts that my name was drawn. I officially call this lottery legit!!!!

    Ditto.
    At least somewhat legit. I doubt PricewaterhouseCoopers will be auditing the results.

    I dunno...starting to like the way Argonaut did this. Much calmer, relaxed. Fair?

    My source tells me that not all bricks went to customers. Let's re-hash this argument, it's fun!!

    No Westy here :( Congrats to those of you who got some at Argonaut! Cheers!

    I'm leaning toward the lottery as a rather bulletproof solution, also - in some situations, this kind especially.

    Is anybody ready for the worst proposition ever?

    I'm in Denver for the weekend from Chicago. I flew out the morning Westy was released there. I didn't get any here. I'm heading up to Ft. Collins tomorrow to hit some breweries. Does anybody who scored a brick want to meet up at funkwerks or odell or new belgium or Equinox or Cranknstein and trade one bottle to me for a KBs or some Bourbon County or something?

    Here's where it gets less attractive--I'd have to ship you your prize once I get back to Chicago.

    Who wants in on this legitimate-yet-worst-offer-ever?

    I've had worse propositions than that. Usually in Kolkata :rolleyes:

    I accidentally hit the "prohibited" button. I hope that doesn't result in his ad being taken down...
