    And this is when I admit that I forgot to put the glass in yours...:confused:
    That's what happens when you drink Zombie Dusts while packing, and packing the second of two boxes...

    I'm away, but assuming my fiancé hasn't stolen it all, I should be ready to post my haul from Oaked tomorrow :)

    So all of that was for the league? Put the 110oz minimum to shame!

    You are most welcome. After looking over your wants list, I saw so many things that I either already had or are on the shelf here, and since I didn't have any home run hitters (obviously both in the season and in that list), I figured I'd go quantity over quality. Not that there is a bad beer there, just no big names (or what I'd consider a big name as it's all easy to pick up around here).

    Plus, after the start the Flyers had, I knew he could use it. (Although congrats on the win tonight! And against the Rags! haha) Plus, at least he'll know that, even if he hates them with a passion, there are good Penguins fans out there. (Even if we never see eye-to-eye on anything again. haha)

    I appreciate that, but I just sent a box that I know I'd like to receive if I ever win a league. (Which, after losing in 2 and starting off horribly in a third, I don't know will ever happen. :mad: )

    Plus, like I said, just a bunch of wants on his list that I knew were easy pickups. If I can grab that stuff that easily and make someone's day, well hell, that's everything I've seen (both read about and personally experienced) about being a good BA and I'll be damned if I'm going to be the kink in that chain.

    ^I think you guys put yourselves behind the 8 ball with all those trades/signings of big names. Between not-performing, not having chemistry, that's set the team back significantly. Hopefully getting Torts the hell out of the there will help. Just could not stand that guy, though being a Pens fan, that's a given. haha

    Hope you guys can start building the right way and get back to competitive hockey.

    ^ No problem. Figured that'd give you more time to catch up on your drinking. haha

    Oh, and thanks for the above compliment Lokieman.

    My box ships tomorrow, with a respectable 91.8 average on BA. I don't trade much, so probably can't compete with Nabs, but I hope MM enjoys the homebrew extras!

    You got it! Maybe you can track down another BA or two and do that 5 year Bourbon County vertical. Congrats on the fine fantasy baseball season. We'll see ya next year.

    Hope you enjoy Mister Manager. Congrats. I think we all butted some heads throughout the season, but it was all in good fun and I had a blast. Hope you all did too.

    Duff, that was a badass box!

    Between the BCBS vertical and NG fruits, that was amazing!

    And Lokie, that 512 DPP is incredibly sought after! Took two years to get in a trade. That's a great beer! (Plus, I've only heard good things about Prairie beers.) No need to worry about competing with my box; nowhere near a big name like that.

    Box from Treebs landed today! Totally blown away!

    From Left:
    Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Scotch Ale
    Revolution Deth's Tar
    Fitger's Bourbon Barrel Edmund (474-500)
    50/50 Eclipse 2012, I think this is the Rye Green Wax
    Pipeworks Game of Jones
    Arcadia Ales Barrel aged Shipwreck Porter
    Haymarket Pub and Brewery Glass

    Very Nice Box sent by Treebs, I would thank Ryan for this box, but unfortunately a great Beer Advocate like him is no longer welcome on this site. I guess I'll have to go to the other site to thank him formally with some great trader feedback! Had a blast guys! Finished Third, but it could have went any of a number of ways! Would love to do this again next year, Congrats to the winners, lots of great boxes here!

    Cheers!

    Hey Charles,

    Did you get my box? There was a "delivery exception (damaged)" comment on the Fedex tracking page, but it then it says it was delivered yesterday afternoon. Hopefully it's all there.

    Best,
    Luke

    Yikes, yeah, I did. (I got the last two boxes yesterday, photos will be up when I upload them.) Unfortunately, all three of the cans that you included popped open. The glass bottles are all fine, but all three cans leaked. Good thing you had everything in a plastic bag, so the damage looked contained, but apparently still enough that the Fedex guy noticed.

    :(

    OK well this is embarrassing. The 3 cans were empty and I now realize stupidly used for packaging. I couldn't find the perfect box so I used a bigger box and filled it with material. There should have been a piece of paper on the top with a "checklist" for what was included in the box. Sorry for the lame use of empty cans as packaging!

    Let's talk over PM. I'm wondering if something broke and FedEx repackaged.

    In case anyone is interested, 3 of the 5 bombers I shipped broke or disappeared during shipping. Someone at Fedex was nice enough to repack and ship the remaining bottles, but I have a sneaking suspicion they took some home for themselves. Anyways, I picked up some new stuff from MMs want-list today and will get these replacements out ASAP.

    While I await Hookstrat's do-over (which he's been generous enough to put a rush on), here's atxdelivery's great box of Texas goodies! (Sorry about the poor lighting)
