    All of the troegs glasses are rastal. They are good quality. I think the images on ten could have been done in better quality, but the glasses still look good. They are nice addictions that you can get from their online shop. If you order, get a mini snifter too, one of the better quality mini snifters I have.

    Good to hear; one of my friends checked in there on Facebook a few weeks ago and I asked him to grab me one. I need to pick it up from him one of these days!

    Box hit the road today! It will be on a roughly 2000 mile trek east. Headed to a city famous for a fermented liquid condiment.*

    Glad you enjoyed it, the Teku was one of the first glasses I had planned on including in your package and it was cool that you had mentioned in another thread you that you wanted a glass of that style. I drove across the state on my way up to Traverse City to visit my girlfriend's family and hit up JP in Ann Arbor, Bells in Kalamazoo, Vivant in Grand Rapids, and 7 Monks in Traverse City.

    Believe we are still looking for 5 hauls, with 4 boxes needing to land. I don't think vanilla101's recipient ever posted. I do know we are on track to see a haul tomorrow!

    Corbet fucking KILLED it, as did the lot of you (didn't mean to single him out, but that was last haul seen). Damn I am jelly.

    It speaks volumes that I have already started my box for the next round of this.....

    All good though. Now that I'm seeing everything, I'll know to knock it up a notch on the next round.
