    So I throw up an ISO for a CC, so pretty much immediately I get the "I got you, share it with some of the guys that was with us at Darkness Day", so of course I say "Fock them, this will be all mine" So he sends this:

    You know those stubhub commercials with the "ticket oak" that has whatever tickets you want? I think Kurtis has the "beer oak" in his back yard.

    He is awesome that's why he got my vote for BA of the year. Can't wait to see what's in the box he's sending me.

    He's already pushed hard to win BA of the year 2013. At least he got one vote from the OP and one from me.:grinning:

    Thanks for the shout out big B. This is what happens when someone welcomes a stranger they've never met before into their tasting area and offers up samples of 2007 Darkness and various Cantillon and such on their ass. You said it perfectly...they're gonna get ear-fucked.

    And to you. Looking forward to it.

    My tasting group has already benefited three times from this guy, and I've know him for two months. Great job on another box bro!

    He is a cool guy, poured me something out of a bottle or something back at the Eclipse party, I think both years I saw him. He's a cool guy for sure.

    So are u lobo!

    Leschkie is tops! Ive been on the lookout for a ba Barleywine for the niner games which has become tradition at my house, and at a tasting Saturday ofcouse he brings me a killer ba Barleywine to complete the falcon game! And funny enough BT hooked me up last week with a steel toe lunker for the pats game!

    Not to forget the baddass beers he shares at tasting. casually popes open a 2007 upland strawberry lambic like a sav.

    Cheers to you both!

    Isn't this a classic case of the proverbial pot calling the proverbial kettle black? You two are both rock star BAs. It's about time you get a taste of your own medicine!

    To add to the legend of leschkie, I had a birthday party last night with a "no more than 1 bottle" limit. He shows up with (at least) 3 bottles, an apple the size of a small child, and a cake with obscenities on it. I was simultaneously touched and horrified by the gesture.

    I have met Leschkie a few times. He has been drunk, wandering around the room like a wide-eyed child full of wonder, while his wife patiently guides him along.

    Arbitrator Initiate (0) Nov 26, 2008 California

    Leschkie's wife doesn't get enough credit... She is incredibly patient and a wonderful person to talk to.

    The "wide-eyed child full of wonder" part has me LOLing like crazy.

    Not much has changed in 18 years. Still the kindest dude I know. His wife is bad ass as well. Very happy for those two and the leschkie family.

    One of the times you hung out with Kurtis was clearly at Woodshop.

    Haha, I have started this same thread two or three times before. Dude is the man, and my wife and I have been totally floored by his coolness (and Jenny's) when we've hung out with them. We swap a random box every other month, and this month's was preceded by a text saying that he was sorry that it wasn't a great box. I opened it today to find:

    Tyranena Devil Made Me Do It (long time want)
    Black Tuesday
    Eclipse x2 (wheat & grand cru)
    Drake's barleywine & imperial porter
    Revolution milk stout
    BA 4 calling Birds

    And this is "a weak effort." Shit, ANY BA would be extremely stoked by that box. Let us not forget the time that he threw all the money that I tried to give him on the ground at the train station before Jenny sped off. Or the time he sent me a 3L supplication for my birthday. Or the time he picked up a huge bar tab while I was in the pisser at RR. Or the time he drove me all over the bay area while I was visiting. Or the time...or the time...etc...

    Knowing him.... Probably something ridiculously awesome.

    He actually weighs 195lbs...... Mystery explained.
