Nice drive-by beering!
Nice shot @thebeers
BAM!!! The BIF that would not end!!! Nice shot @thebeers
Well deserved Greg! Nice bomb @thebeers!
Another attack from @thebeers
I am drooling over the idea of a Tired Hands-Hill Farmstead collaboration. Thanks man!
Sorry 'bout that Corey! I don't even know what Cuban Crab is!
Glad the shirt fits though! Cheers!
Evil incarnate apparently
A box just finally made it back to me. Attempt two on shipping this out will come this week, but using UPS this time.
How does this happen to a wine shopper?!?!?
(All beer was recovered and will be repacked this weekend)
Holy Shit and all the beer survived that's a miracle!
Yeah it is, and I'm very thankful for that because some of the bottles would have been a pain to replace. So happy I'm able to resend this box!
DAMN!!! Looks like you were shipping this guy...
Been away from the thread for a while myself, not for the same reasons though, and getting caught up....I'm sorry to hear of your loss.
I hope everything is ok and works out well for you!
Question for some of you experts on here. I'm headed to my first real beer sampling tomorrow, Creature Comforts 3rd Anniversary party. The ticket has 36 oz of samples in 3oz pours, I'll be drinking my wife's share as well so technically I could try 24 different beers tomorrow, Hello New Beer Sunday! Is it typically better to start with the lighter offerings working toward the heavier ones, heavy to light, or just whatever I feel like having? I paid for the early access to guarantee samples of some rarer releases they had so I'll probably start with those first. Either way it should be a heck of a day. Here's the list if it helps.
With that many, maybe try the better one's out first. Have Fun!
Cant wait until tomorrow to open up some stouts from @beerloserLI . Haven't forgot you life has been busy but you will get a thank you box.
So two things here, if you want to hold out the longest on getting messed up then go light to dark.
This helps keep everything down.
But with that many pours you are going to get messed up no matter what you do. So I like to drink the good stuff first so I can remember if I liked them or not. Then drink stuff you normally wouldn't once you start thinking everything tastes good.
Well, you took such good care of me, I feel I need to come up with some sage advice for you...
Damn, I'm not that wise. But I have been to quite a few of these types of events. I like the early entry, especially if it allows you to try out some special beers that will have hella lines later. In general, I go from subtle flavors to stronger flavors. (not lite to dark necessarily). For example, Kolsch, marzen, helles, etc. would go before Saison, hoppy. And barrel aged stuff would be last. Howeverrrrr, if you get to take small breaks, HYDRATE, eat some grub to cleanse your palate a bit, and did i say hydrate? Then you could bounce around a bit.
Have fun! And hydrate.
I like rinsing my glass once, then a second time, where I drink the rinse.
That sounds pretty good, hadn't thought about water....
@ovaltine , I'm out collecting some beers for the box I'm sending, and, at the moment, I'm having the Addo Kriek you enjoyed so much. Was going to send you a couple more bottles, but, alas, none are to be had. Would you want more of the Peach Millie instead?
Did you survive?
Oh yeah but man did I enjoy some great beers! Believe it or not that was my first experience with any of their BA stouts and sours, they seem to always have the release party while I'm at work and the bottles are gone that night. I believe I'll be taking a sick day on the next release....
Getting close to last chance to donate to this LIF if anyone is interested:
If I win I will make a contest to the members of this BIF who donate.
(and maybe add in a few nice brews to the forwarded prize)
Couple spots left in this Kentucky Derby BIF if anyone is interested.
Well, I'm not one for the ponies. Plus, I still need to pay my way to @beertunes for winning the March Madness round. I have a couple good ones heading his way. Super fresh. I hope he appreciates the tardy payoff.
Got a thanks you box from @Harrison8
Too Cool!!! Nice gesture @Harrison8
Well, @larryi86 took good care of me. In fact, another box hit my porch this weekend.
Considering how much I emphasized my love for coffee, I think he nailed it.
Dang. I wasn't keeping up with this thread. I was wondering why there was some chunked up styrofoam in my box, haha. This explains it! Glad you were able to recover it and thank you for going through the trouble of resending it!
I don't see how FedEx could've done that to your box. That's just crazy. I have been able to recover more boxes from FedEx then UPS, although I suppose the real goal is to not have to even try to recover one. Cheers!
As a coffee lover myself that is one sweet looking box. Great job @larryi86
The Mikkeller's little brother (Beer Geek Breakfast) is one of the craft beers I credit for launching me into craft. Super excited to sip on the Weasel version!
Coffee brews in general are to blame for this hobby. What are some of your favorite coffee brews? Alcoholic and not, haha.
I am unfortunately a Starbucks addict. 2 venti's a day. Really anything with espresso is right up my alley. Although not much coffee flavor, I love the blended drinks from coffee bean and tea leaf. If one was in northern cali I would have no money for beer. I absolutely love oatmeal stouts with coffee. They are my favorite beers.
Holy Fermentations Batman!!! @larryi86 When does it ennnnnnnndddd?
Haha, that was meant to hit the week before the target date. When it got back to me I had to make sure that @Harrison8 got his coffee fix!
No worries, dude. I buy a lot of locally roasted coffee, and will stop in for an espresso when I buy a bag, but that happens about once every month or two. Now that I only drink coffee at home on the weekends, 12oz of coffee beans lasts me a while. Espresso is my favorite as well, I just don't get it often. I've toyed with the idea of buying an espresso machine, but I need a quality grinder first - which I will get around the time I move out.
I have been surprised by Starbuck's coffee bean quality! While I prefer a few local roasters, it's pretty awesome how consistent and above average Starbuck's is. If I'm elsewhere in the world and want a bag to brew out camping or what not, I always know Starbuck's medium roast bag will treat me just fine. Although I have the local coffee shops scoped out pretty well in my usual camping territories
I am no Amcrastinator, I'm certainanly a PROcrastinator. Just got back from Fedex, where a 43 pound box is headed to @ovaltine, to fulfill my obligation to this BIF. I waited for him to move, then I wanted to add some local releases, then I had to wait for a paycheck, then there were a couple more beers I waited on....... Anyhoo, I think he'll be happy with what he gets. A nice variety of formats and styles. I'm sure he'll appreciate the heavy beers during a Texas summer!
If I counted right, you'll be getting 17 containers of beer. There were a couple more I couldn't squeeze in.
