    YES!!! I just got my beers today! Packaged well and ice cold. It was hard to put these in my beer fridge without wanting to sample :slight_smile:Can't wait to put these badass beers in my belly.

    Just received in SW Washington. Beer was just cool, ice pack was water. Otherwise in excellent shape.

    Also, fest beers are shipped refrigerated from the breweries and kept refrigerated by Half Time before shipping. It's those extreme temps that you really need to worry about.

    Just following up from previous post... my box finally arrived today.

    - Got the first notice that my box had shipped on 4/14
    - Tracking finally showed, "Out for delivery" yesterday, but then the box was not delivered and showed, "Local Delivery Delay"
    - Earlier today, tracking showed the same again, "Out for delivery" and then later, again showed, "Local Delivery Delay" again.
    - My box was finally dropped at my front door a little while ago, and when I opened the box, the beers and "cold pack" are literally warmer that it is inside my home (keep my AC at about 75 degrees).

    I suspect they didn't knock or ring when they dropped off the box (or collect any adult signature for shipped beer :astonished:), because the side of the box clearly states, "Rush!! Perishable Shipment", and I bet they realized they screwed up.

    I am a bit worried about my beer... :confused:

    Just got mine today, interior was warm :slight_frown: looks like the ice pack was punctured and leaked inside the cooler

    I’ve had three or four LSO shipments, and the tracking has never updated properly. I’m shocked that they didn’t attempt to get a signature. My guy has me sign and he takes a picture of me with the package. Hopefully your beer will be fine, but you should probably reach out to halftime if you haven’t already. Cheers!

    My tracking has been showing label created since the 12th with an expected shipment date of 4/14. This doesn’t seem normal. Why has my order not actually shipped as of yet?

    You should probably reach out to @HalfTime about this.

    Ok, I am now impressed with HalfTime. After further examination of my package, there were two cans that were crushed that the tops had popped up. Pressure was still in the can but no way of knowing if there is a small leak or if carbonation would be gone. Asked for replacement of those cans only. Today box shows up, they sent an entire other package. Hats off to HalfTime
