    Sounds like some of you have already received your packages, but I'm stoked to report that @HalfTime is currently in the process of shipping all packages. Depending on your state, deliveries will hit throughout this week and during most of next week too.

    Issues? Questions? Concerns?

    Please contact Half Time: virtualevents@halftimebeverage.com or (845) 462-7899

    UPS is delivering mine tomorrow. It is going to take a lot of willpower on my part to not open any of them prior to the Fest.

    Received mine today. Perfectly packed, nice and cold, and being all cans made it a lighter package.

    Looks like I've got some fridge-clearing work (beer drinking) to do between now and when I get my box.

    It's a tough job, but someone's got to do it!

    Congrats! QQ - how did you know when it was supposed to arrive? I haven't received any notifications about our shipment. Thanks!

    Half Time will send you a tracking code for whatever the regional carrier is that will be delivering the package once your stuff ships. For some reason sometimes those emails end up in my junk folder though (also, my last couple of orders from them had the emails go out late at night).

    Just need to set up an account on ups.com. You'll get shipping notifications then.

    Got my emails last night, but based on what it explained about shipping, it should take anywhere from 6-10 business days to get to me in Texas. I cannot imagine the beer will still be cold at that point, but I'll hold out hope that it will be!

    Got my shipment today (shoulda been yesterday but I wasn't at home). It's going to take a lot of willpower to keep my mitts off those beers until the Fest!

    Woo got my shipping confirmation today

    Hopefully I can set an alternative drop-off point since I'll be in the office and unable to sign for it. I've been able to do that with Burial and Three's shipments. They drop it off at Walgreens, I go there flash an ID and walk out

    Package arrived and beers were still nice and cold. Seems like it got tossed around quite a bit though as cans were dented up pretty good and the poster is in less than ideal condition.

    Got my box in MA today and cans were still cold in my package, too! Took a quick inventory before I had to hide them away in the beer fridge. Too damn tempting!

    Where roughly in MA are you? I'm not really sure what to make of the tracking number page as it has a bunch of different things written down. Says it arrived in Stoughton yesterday morning so I figured it was coming to me (Seekonk) yesterday or today, but it also says something like "Delivery to: 4/22/21" so I'm not really sure when to expect it, just don't wanna miss signing for it if I'm not home

    I'm near intersection of 495 and Mass Pike, and my delivery came around 1:30 or so. It was shipped through GIO Express which I think is just a courier. For me there weren't any status updates, even this morning, other than the package was scheduled to be picked up on Thursday, so I had no idea it was coming today. I just checked the status on my shipment and they just updated status. Same thing happened with my shipment for the EBF in February.

    Ahh that’s annoying lol, for EBF I went to New York to pick up the box from Half Time so this is my first time dealing with GIO shipping. The shipping center is only about a half hour away so I might see if they allow for a pickup over there. Thanks for the help!

    Got mine from today - no signature required (I was out) but someone entered the wrong name and faked a signature in the GLS delivery tracker.

    I got my box of "liquid joy" delivered in central California today (Saturday). The delivery driver was taken aback by how excited I was... little did he know! Going to have to fight the temptation to open a can for two weeks, but will stay strong. Looking forward to the Fest!

    Should I be concerned that I haven't received neither shipping info nor the delivery? I'm in AZ, my brother in law received his yesterday.

    You can reach out to @HalfTime if you have concerns, but deliveries will be happening this week too.

    Yay, pleasant surprise on a Sunday afternoon! Arrived here in Rhode Island in perfect condition, now hibernating (impatiently) at the back of the fridge...
