    If your package is being delivered by GIO in CT or MA, your best bet is to call them at 1-888-291-9601. Trying to figure out when your package will arrive based on their tracking site is vey difficult.

    This 100%.

    Mine was updated as arriving in New Rochelle to ship out at 9am this morning and was at my apartment north of Boston about 4 hours later. Similar things have happened every time I've had something delivered by them, their tracking updates seem to be nonsense.

    Todd, I tried calling that number, and it seems like it's a fax number. I'm having some delivery issues . . .

    Mine just arrived in Medford MA, so the other 3 (at least) BAs in town should be on the look out. Same for folks in the surrounding towns?

    Odd. It’s the same number that we’ve used for all virtual fests. Have you tried emailing them?

    Just got mine in Wisconsin. Not ice cold but cool. It’s not that warm out anyway (they are talking bleeping snow on Tuesday night ) so even with ice depleted it never got that warm.

    Got mine today, not cold and one can exploded, multiple dented up...

    Make that 2 cans leaking. I’ve never had a problem with halftime before so this was a shocker. @Todd who do I contact about this? Thanks

    Yeah, and it was weird because I got another shipment from halftime today as well and it was perfectly fine. HT is on it though, so no worries

    Has anyone in Texas received their package or at least gotten something besides “pickup pending” on their tracking number?

    Got mine from UDS today. No damage other than a couple of scraped labels, but they’re all room temp. The gel pack is only slightly cool and there was a 1/2” of water inside the styrofoam cooler box (no leaks, thankfully).

    Figures that the first work trip I’ve taken in 5 months coincides with my box landing today. Mrs O was a trooper, though, and brought it in and managed to wedge the beers into the fridge.

    She’s a keeper.

    Got mine today, too. All room temp, but hopefully all still good! No leaks or anything, at least, and even the poster is in perfect condition.

    Pretty much my box status as well, minus the scraped labels. All seems fine.

    Received mine yesterday evening, little bummed out.

    The package itself was in good shape but the inside of the box was warm and the gel pack was completely liquid, even that itself was warm to the touch.

    Hope the brews are alright

    Ahh I'm sorry to hear that! Due to the complexities of shipping beer, we have to use a different carrier in nearly every state...and needless to say, some are speedier than others. While it's obviously not ideal that the beer arrived warm in the end, you can rest assured that for most of its journey it was ice cold, so I wouldn't expect any off flavors or diminished quality :slight_smile:

    Here's to hoping...I received my shipping confirmation 6 days prior. Any insight on how long that ice pack should last?

    Hey there. We received this as a gift, and so we didn’t directly get a shipping code... is there any way to check on that that I’m missing?

    Got mine today about noon. It sat unopened on my work desk until I brought it home. Ice pack was liquid, but the cans were still cold.

    Nope. I received a notice from "LSO" that my "Your Half Time Beverage order has been shipped!", on 4/14, but when I look up the tracking, it just shows, "Local Delivery Delay" and Delivery date: "Pending", Signed By "Pending".

    I am getting nervous that I will not receive by Friday, and even if I do, they may arrive hot... :slight_frown:

    Texas people be ready, mine dropped today, LSO has no shipping updates other than Label Printed & Delivered. Opened box was still chilly, but condensation reeked havoc on that poster I was going to frame and hang in my office.

    SMH at everyone concerned that their beer arrived warm or the ice pack didn't stay cold the entire trip. News flash: the beer you buy at your local shops travel warm before getting there.
