Boxes have started to land so let see what everyone got.
Got my first box! Thanks Boilermakerbrew! Pumped about trying all the beers!
Love the glass too!
3x Zombie dust
4 hands Resurrection
2x 3F's Alpha King
Odell Mountain Standard Double Black IPA
3F Robert the bruce
Don't know why the picture is upside down? Wasn't a few hours ago?
You're either really drunk, or a bat.
Ah, sweet victory. The first of my 6 boxes has landed, thanks to Boilermakerbrew (who sent 2 boxes for finishing in last place.) Thanks!
2x 3 Floyds Zombie Dust
2x 3 Floyds Alpha King
2x 3 Floyds Robert the Bruce
1x Odell Mountain Standard
1x Schlafly Pumpkin
1x 4 Hands Morning Glory
And this is when I admit that I forgot to put the glass in yours...
That's what happens when you drink Zombie Dusts while packing, and packing the second of two boxes...
My box landed yesterday.
I'm away, but assuming my fiancé hasn't stolen it all, I should be ready to post my haul from Oaked tomorrow
Thankfully the lady didn't steal all the beer, and I got a great haul from Oaked!
6x Freemont Interurban IPA (canned 10/7)
1x Pelican MOAS 2012
1x Midnight Sun Arctic Devil
1x Jester King Farmhouse Black Metal
1x Logsdon Cerasus
Really, just killer stuff. Thanks a million, Oaked! Hopefully you play and lose every year
(Also included a Freemont glass, not pictured)
Thank you so much Nabs!!!
All pics are good, if they go upside its gotta be photobucket.
So all of that was for the league? Put the 110oz minimum to shame!
Sure did! Thanks Nabs! Way over did it, appreciate it though!
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)
NABS you really set the tempo for future boxes to be sent. Great job man.
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. )
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.
Lean times for us Rangers fans. Lean times.
^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.
Holy Moly! My box is supposed to land tomorrow...how am I supposed to follow this?!? Good show NABS...

Thanks meant to do that last night, sorry.
^ 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!
Lokieman's box landed over the weekend, with some nice stuff inside. Let's go to the videotape:
1 x Jester King Viking Metal
1 x 512 Brewing Double Pecan Porter (big want!)
2 x Prairie Standard
1 x Marble Brewing IPA
1 x Hops and Grain "The One They Call Zoe"
and a sweet 512 Brewing Pint Glass
Looks like my final 3 boxes are on their way. Great hauls so far, look forward to seeing them keep coming!
After a long day yesterday, had a nice box from BilbosNuts waiting for me when I got home!
1 x Knee Deep Simtra
1 x Deschutes Black Butte XXV
1 x Caldera Brewing Mogli
1 x Port Board Meeting
1 x Firestone Walker Double DBA

New Glarus Strawberry rhubarb
New Glarus Serendipity
New Glarus glass
Two Brothers Night Cat
Two Brothers Heavier Handed
Also saw another beer in box when went over to my bar(didnt have phone on me at the time)
Thanks so much Duff27! Cant wait to have all these beers! Thank you all my senders, really appreciate it! Hopefully you'll have me next season!
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!
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!
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.
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.
Hopefully they were like Keystone cans or something or else that's just a tease!!
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.
Alright as long as you guys have it worked out between the two of you.
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)
Alesmith Horny Devil
Jester King Das Wunderkind
Freetail Salado Kriek
Freetail La Muerta
St. Arnold Pumpkinator
Jester King Noble King
(No glassware, by agreement -- an extra beer instead.)
Got hookstrat's makeup box this weekend. Good stuff! Thanks Luke, and thanks to everyone else for losing to me. Let's do it again next year!

3 Floyds Dreadnaught
Homebrew: Muncie, IN Cyser
(These are in addition to the survivors from the last box: Hopping Frog BA Barleywine, Stone Old Guardian 2009, an Upland pint glass and 3 nice homebrew extras. I've misplaced that photo.)
