    Glad everything arrived safely and next time I'll thrown out some more obvious hints. Enjoy Matt!

    Food and some other stuff arrives tomorrow. Hope to at least match that monster you sent me last round. Still enjoying them :)

    I put down 8 lbs as an "generous" "estimate" as my postal scale is currently out of service.

    Just spoke to the brewery from which my local glass is coming--the glasses are presently running late. I'm going to see what I can do about getting another glass (and some food) out sooner--jjheinrichs, I'm sorry for the delay.

    After a long day in St.Louis at the golf course, I'm finally back home, and too tired to post pics. Once again big thanks to Pelican5 for an outstanding box and I will post pics in the morning. Must sleep now.

    I have several boxes ready for shipping on Monday :) The beer will ship on time, but I'm trying to coordinate the food item. The things I want to send are temperature sensitive and I will have to reconsider I think...

    That being said I have a few wants, but I am sending two nice sized boxes of just beer to my target. One BA bottle was recently released in my city and is one of 420 bottles released.
     
  19. DicemanSTL

    DicemanSTL Oct 22, 2011 Missouri

    Just to clarify, I am NOT sending JUST beer :) I just need to figure the logistics of my food item, which I planned to send with the glassware. The first two boxes shipped on Monday though will be just beer, but I need to ask for some food shipping advice from a guy I know who specializes in such things :)

    So ncaudle is a ridiculously generous BA. A huge haul of beers that are all completely new to me. Here's what was in those amazing boxes my wife had difficulty dragging into the house yesterday:

    [​IMG]
    Non-beer items:
    • Williamsburg Alewerks Snifter
    • Blue Mountain Coasters
    • Peanut Brittle (my wife has been harassing me all morning to take the photo so she can open this)
    • Pumpkin Butter
    • Blueberry Preserves
    • Doc Pierce's Barbeque Sauce
    All very cool - can't wait to break into some of this stuff.

    I've been running around the house calling this picture the money shot, had to explain that one to the wife and she wasn't pleased. ncaudle put a huge dent in my wants list with these. I'm willing to bet we all recognize the bottles here. I was like a little kid on Christmas unwrapping them.
    Seriously amazing boxes, thanks again Nicolas. You killed it.

    Cheers.

    rochesteraaron,
    open the Isabel over a sink with glasses ready - apparently Blue Mtn issued a recall on that bottle yesterday after being released for only 1 week. I've opened 2 Isabels with no issues other than it being overcarbed but apparently there have been issues with other bottles, ie, corks exploding in bottle shops... drink sooner rather than later.

    re: the Legends, yes a '10 and a '11. note the '10 is 15+% while the '11 is only about 13%
    ( I now remember/realize I didn't include a note with the packages)

    Sorry for the delay, had a busy weekend. This is the contents from the second box that Rick (Pelican5) was kind enough to send me. the beers are 2 more Sculpin, Red Chair, Black Butte, Mirror Pond, Velvet Merlin, Adam and a KBS. I also received a Rusian River glass to enjoy these tasty brews from, along with two packages of beef jerky that my son will probably steal from meand a jar of garlic stuffed olives!

    Packing my box for shipment tomorrow. Hit several of my target's "big" wants, wish I could see the look on his face when he opens this one up. Gonna ship two boxes, the one with beer and the other with glasses and snacks. Cheers!

    Dropped a shipment off today for my target. I was surprised to actually be able to get it into only two boxes (a "10 pound" and a "15 pound" box; we'll see if Fedex notices). 389oz heading to a city that has been the subject of at least one nighttime soap.

    My targets box should arrive by Thurs. in the northeast :) Two boxes with beer and the glassware (11 12oz bottles and a glass in a 12 shipper and a six shipper with a mix of 750's and bombers) I have another idea on the food item I'm exploring and hope to get concluded before tomorrow

    2 boxes are on there way to my target and slated for Wed delivery. The 12-bottle shipper had an old shipping tag from my targets hometown... I'm wondering if they were a previous owner of the shipper.
