I can't wait to see when my box shows up!
Today I received a box of beer in the mail. I have to admit, Ray had me fooled for a minute when the first thing I saw upon opening the box was a little contraption made of beer can holders stuffed with coins. I'm not expecting my Coin Advocate trade until next week:
Anyway, I got a damn fine box full of some great goodies and some of the most thorough and creative packaging I've seen, including one bottle wrapped in a Pampered Chef magazine. The girl on the cover was cute, although I would have preferred a Victoria's Secret. But that's my only complaint, as I got a ton of good beers:
From left to right:
Cigar City Guava Grove
Cigar City Jai Alai (x2)
Cigar City Hotter Than Helles Lager (x2)
Cigar City White Oak Jai Alai
Cigar City Tocobaga Red
DFH 120 minute
Intuition I-10 IPA (x2, one of which you can see didn't make it to picture time)
Saint Somewhere Serge
Saint Somewhere Saison Athene
Thanks a ton Ray! Looking forward to everything!
Pics are not working
Glad you enjoyed. All were on your wants list except White Oak (which should) and Helles. I figured best to go and hit any wants I could local, cheers!
True dat. Commish is gonna love that White Oak Jai Alai.
FYI - the packaging was a result of it being my 3rd box that night, and I ran out if bubble wrap! So I had to get resourceful!
My box landed today, no word from the receiver though...
Your hints seemed to indicate Boston, but nothing on my porch. Must be Don.
Box is heading out today to a city that fields a team that just switched leagues.
Unless I'm going crazy that means that Houston you may hAve a problem
Here's the box I just got from Jesse today:
Sam Adams Tasman Red
Saint Arnolds Amber
Stone Vanilla Bean Smoked Porter
2x Karbach Brewing Rodeo Clown Double IPA
2x Convict Hill Oatmeal Stout
Thanks for the brews. Already got the Rodeo Clown open, with a Convict Hill on deck, while I keep an eye on my Fantasy BBall team. More importantly, I got a bigger box to use in my shipment this week. With any Luck, it'll arrive at the beginning of next week!
Did we get word on your box? Did I miss it?
I did receive it, will post pics when I get a chance, thanks for the beers!
No need to feel inadequate, you met the requirements with beers I am stoked to try!
Okay, just got my package shipped out today. Should be about a week before it arrives. Its going to the state which I'm originally from and a state which has a superior baseball team compared to all other!
better not be NY....
Must be Florida...Tampa Bay RAYS!
Got a really nice box last night, will post the haul later.
Nope, nice guess but wrong.
Here is the box is got from Don, super stoked to try more Hill Farmstead, and I'll never turn down a Heady! (in fact, it'll be opened shortly!)
As I stated before, I sent you the wrong box expect more beer in the next couple weeks!
Here is the haul from flexabull, stoked to try all these, thanks!
There was one more bottle in there, did you get it?
And really, no need to send anything else either.
Hmmm... What was it? I unpacked 3 boxes at once and may have mixed them up...
12 oz Deschutes Red Chair. Check the box!
Lol there is a red chair in my fridge, I thought it was an extra in one of my trades, whoops! I love red chair!
That means your original post was wrong!
Packed up and heading out this afternoon. Heading to a city I've only driven through. First time I'd ever seen a toll highway!
tolls suck ass...
Chocolate Love Stout
Sculpin IPA x2
Enjoying a sculpin right now, and excited to crack open some of the NN. Thanks Michael.
The bird has left the nest and is heading east to a city that won a World Series in the last 10 years.
Hey Corben, just want to let you know, The Hopslam is aged. In my never ending quest to show that Aged IPA's are not evil, I've included one. Do not fear it, it tastes like a biscuit with honey on it. Let me know what you think!
Just in! Couldn't wait to open the box. Thanks Corben.

Should be a little sumptin sumptin hitting down in the Windy City today.
Ugh, looks like delayed until Monday.
... wait am i the only one in the windy city? i'm to lazy to look thru my emails and figure out!
Well shit that means I gotta get my stout bif box out Monday since I'm literally at capacity for the space I've got for beer and drinking many bombers at once is ill advised.
I believe so too.....
Um...we need to talk about the utter nonsense that just landed on my porch courtesy of James. (Jim? Jimmy? Jimbo?) I could not have possibly asked for a better combination of new locals to try and wants that had no right being hit. Thanks, man! And I don't take kindly to being upstaged. This isn't over.
