    Congrats to our 3 winners of regular season nfl pickem, it was a difficult season to pick this year.

    Jpmclaug took first
    Mjmoser took 2nd (barely!)
    cosmo4u took 3rd

    the draft was held and the targets are out, lets see those boxes!

    also want to remind the losers that i will be sending out an additional LIF box to one of the losers who played.

    GO NINERS!

    Great box. Sorry for the slow response. I have an awful sinus infection that has kept me in bed. Now for the haul:

    Can of Big Sky Brewing Scape Goat Pale Ale
    Bottle of Big Sky Brewing Slow Elk Oatmeal Stout
    Bottle of Bayern Doppelbock
    Can of Lewis and Clark Back Country Scottish Ale
    2 Cans of Lewis and Clark Tumbleweed IPA

    Thanks for the great beers. I was hoping to get some local gems that I hadn't heard of before when I picked you and you nailed it!

    Got another box today, this one from KevSal

    Can of Devils Canyon Full Boar Scottish Ale
    Bomber of Drakes Denogginizer
    Bomber of Deschutes Abyss 2012

    Thanks a ton. Deschutes is probably my favorite brewery and I'm bummed I can't get them here, and the Abyss is one of my favorite beers they put out.

    Big ole box from adamb0719. I was surprised to see such a huge box sitting on my doorstep when I got home for lunch and it was full of good stuff. Here's the haul:

    2 Three Floyd Gumballheads
    Triton Brewing Railsplitter IPA
    Triton Brewing Deadeye Stout
    Flat 12 Pogues Run Porter
    Flat 12 Half Cycle IPA
    New Glarus Cran-Bic Ale
    New Glarus Enigma
    Brwery Vivant Escoffier Bretta Ale
    Brewery Vivant Farm Hand
    Sun King Osiris Pale Ale
    Sun King Wee Mac
    Three Floyds Rye Da Tiger

    Thank you so much. A ton of beers and all great ones at that. Flat 12 and Triton stuff is especially exciting since I didn't even know they bottled their beers.

    a funny side note.. My wife who doesnt drink beer but accepts my insanity with collecting and cellaring beer, saw the 2008 date on the label and asked if she should grab the bubble wrap to handle the bottle.
