    I got that too -- I didn't figure out what was wrong until I saw your message. It's not a very helpful error. :smile:

    I was excited until it I read it’s not a virtual event. Extreme Beer fest least year was my first and it was really a great format. I had a buddy over and we had a blast sharing them in the comfort of our home but also hearing commentary and Q&A. With regret, I’ll pass this year.

    Still virtual just doesn't look like it will have the commentary and QA - unless something gets organized via discord. Looking forward to enjoying the beers at home with some buds.

    Cheers,

    Correct. No live streams this time, but I'm planning some stuff that'll be fun, educational, and engaging.

    Thanks for the support! Beers will be announced as they're confirmed by the brewers, who are currently selecting or brewing them for the box.

    I'm in! I gave up at 1520 (EDT) & went to bed since I work nights, but upon awakening ~ 1800 (EDT), the Half Time site was operable & allowed me to make my purchase. Hopefully, the box will CANtain some CANs ...

    Apparently I missed all the excitement when you all crushed Half Time’s website like an NBW BIF crushes porches - well done!!!

    Got my box, looking forward to the list of beers. Let’s do this, @Todd!!!

    I have no idea what to expect but decided to get a box anyway. The last 2 fest boxes have only had one or two beers I couldn’t finish, and that’s a good enough track record for me!

    I just dropped $125 on 12 unknown beers and I'm not even an "extreme" beer guy. It's my appreciation for the benefits I get from this site (mostly knowledge some laughs). Thanks for your efforts Todd and crew.. I have also included a blank check for the next lager box (next Spring/Summer of course, really loved the last one), virtual fest or not.

    So excited for this offering! Purchased 2 so I could share!
    Would be cool, and a welcomed addition,, if the brewers could make a 5 minute video for their beers to introduce us to their beers and their approach to Extreme Beer events... , then they don't have to be available for an event and we can enjoy each beer in our own time. A video or sticker or even friendly smile might help develop loyalty to a BRAND all of the way across the country.

    Hell yeah!
    Yep. We asked brewers to do a video for Extreme Beer Fest, IPA Fest, and Lager Fest in Cyberspace. I plan on doing the same thing for Extreme Beer Box + more in the private forum and BArmy Discord.

    I was hesitant without knowing what beers are actually included, but screw it. For $10ish a beer (free shipping when I ordered), it's hard to go wrong.

    Plus a one-year Respect Beer Society membership (browse the site with no web ads)!

    And, between us, I hope to add another perk for everyone buying this Round 1 box.

    Ordered mine today. After a spirited debate with myself, I finally caved. I just can't pass this up. Thanks @Todd for organizing this box for us! Can't wait to start seeing the bottles/cans that are selected!

    Well I tried my best to muck up the process, but halftime rocks and I'm good to go! I have no doubt this will far exceed any gifts I get for Christmas this year!

    I'm debating with myself as well. Just nervous that it will end up as half a box of some type of IPA. What do brewers typically put out for these? Not that that will hint at what will be released here.

    Based on what I know so far, and the fact that this is inspired by Extreme Beer Fest, I don't anticipate a box of IPAs.

    Sadly I have no one back on the Oklahoma side I can get delivery with & the Natural State is still a no-go for half time. Would've made a helluva Christmas present to me from me.
