    Glad you liked it man!!! Wish there was a good Jack's Abby glass to go along with the shirts and beer, but unfortunately they only sell shaker pints that have really bad screenprinting on them right now.. It wears off very quickly :[

    All glassware acquired and swag purchased. Going to pack everything up this weekend and ship out early next week. It will be heading to a state known for a particular style of beer that I am quite fond of and have brewed a few batches of myself.

    Yes some one did! Thanks for the great box Dave (sandman3479). Please excuse me for the ficture quality, getting this phone to work out...

    The haul...
    Cpt Lawrence Extra Gold Shirt
    NEBCO Sea Hag - will be drank tonight
    NEBCO 668 glass - cool!
    Lawsons tulip/snifter - cool again!
    Cpt Lawrence tulip/snifter - love me some Lawsons
    Magic Hat Pilsner - good for summer beers
    Cpt Lawrence Extra gold - to go with the shirt and the glass!

    But alas, one soldier (Hill Farmstead large tulip/wine glass) gave his life so the othes could make it....

    Glad you like it! Sorry about the broken HF glass. Next time I go up, I'll make sure to grab you another.

    And I know the Magic Hat glass is a little quirky, but I'm not sure if it's in production anymore, and as you mentioned, it'll be good for summer beers or possibly lambics/gueze's.

    Also, my name is Dino, not Dave :)

    Thanks again and we will be in contact I guess! The Sea Hag is gone...and delicious!

    Dropped my box off Saturday. It's headed to someone who as already shipped.

    Glass in the box ended up being 4 wants, 2 locals, and one of my favorite snifters (overlaps in the count).

    I apologize for the delay, stupid work got in the way as this box landed Friday but I was traveling until this morning. However, leeds376 aka Wade completely destroyed this box! I'm not sure how he artfully got everything in the box packaged so well, but I felt like a clown car of beer awesomeness as I kept pulling stuff out. A nice hand written note explaining everything (including his family pizza joint in the fam for over 40 years) and a ton of bad ass swag.

    Sick list goes as follows:
    • Bruery tulip
    • Troegs mini snifter
    • Troegs Mad Elf snifter
    • Duck-Rabbit snifter
    • Tired Hands wine glass (didn't know I want but totally wanted it once I saw it)
    • Burley Oak Brewing snifter (this thing weighs like 2lbs)
    • Burley Oak tshirt
    • Tommy's pizza tshirt
    • Starr Pils hat (perfect for baseball season)
    • Big Gruesome (fuck yeah!)
    • Burley Oak Barrel Aged Barleywine (one sweet label)
    • Little Red Rooster Coffee Cream stout
    • Tons of coasters and stickers (love it!)
    • An empty pizza box
    Obligatory GIF pron:
    http://sprizz.net/gallery3/index.php/steebo777/Spring-BA-GIF-2013

    A huge thanks to Wade on this as he obviously put a lot of time into the box and getting it all together. Seriously sweet haul around that makes me love these GIFs. Well done!
