    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!

    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!

    Your hints seemed to indicate Boston, but nothing on my porch. Must be Don.

    We got:

    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!

    There was one more bottle in there, did you get it?

    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!

    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.

    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.
